Note, I am using up this box of low carb, high protein foods that I've had for awhile now. Most were sent to me to review or for free to try and some I got at a discount. I figure I may as well use them up since they make good crutches while getting off junk or trying to cut carbs, but aside from the occasional bar or shake I don't plan to keep them in my diet long term. They are easy portions and generally between 100 and 160 calories, 0 to 15 grams of carbs, 10 to 15 grams of protein.
The cream in my coffee is half and half. I use 1 to 2 tablespoons in a large glass. When I get coffee out, I get cold brew or Americano, which is made with water and no milk. I get no sweetener or sugar free syrup in coffee. I think if I am out and get an iced tea or granita from now on instead of 1-2 pumps of syrup I will go with no sweetener. Then the tea has basically no calories. Thanks for the comments on the last post.
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.
