Still plugging along. I have a sick kid on antibiotics today so we're not going out except maybe for a walk around the neighborhood for us to get some fresh air if she is up to it. Drinking lots of water. I wasn't going to keep noting my food intake, and may not long term, but someone pointed out to me that having a record in the beginning would be helpful so I am still taking notes. Maybe not every day, we'll see.
Breakfast: black decaf coffee, 100 calorie protein shake
Lunch: iced coffee with a splash of half and half, one baked chicken thigh, no skin, 5 roasted cashews, and 5 cherries
Afternoon: a serving of Kay's Naturals protein crackers and a couple spoons of 2% cottage cheese
iced diet Snapple peach tea
Dinner: La Croix blackberry cucumber sparking water (no sweetener, no calories), small bowl of calabacita (lean beef, onions, garlic, calabacita squash, tomatoes, taco seasoning. I also added a zucchini, some celery, and a lot of mushrooms to make it lower calorie)... about 1 cup in a bowl with a spoon of light sour cream and some cubed avocado on top.
Evening: protein bar
Calabacita, delicious and full of veggies!
Breakfast: black decaf coffee, 1 babybel cheese, 2 slices deli ham, iced diet Snapple peach tea
Lunch: small bowl (less than a cup) of leftover calabacita, topped with grated cheese and a spoon of light sour cream. Dill pickle spear.
Snack: sparkling water
Dinner: slice of thin crust pizza with steak, mushrooms, and onions. Yes I know this was not low carb, but I was with a group eating pizza. Thin crust (and not eating the crust edge) was my best option.
Snack: a few olives, a few cherries
So far today I have only had black decaf coffee.
The other day I saw some mentions online of a product called Xyngular that is for weight loss, energy, clear skin, and better health. I am trying to find out some information on this product because it sounds interesting... all natural, includes vitamins, etc. But I am really not up for a scam or anything risky or with scary stimulants. Are any of you familiar with this brand? Tried their products and have a good or bad experience? Would like to hear about it... you can leave me a comment or drop me an email. Thanks!
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
