Well, here we are at the 6-month point and we’re still going StRoNg! Meaning this is something we can live with and trust. Mark is feeling much much better and we’re looking forward to new lab work in a couple of months. It’s certainly a different feeling to be looking forward to getting lab work done rather than dreading it as we have for so many years!
I’ve lost 45 pounds in this six months. Some people lose much more quickly than this, but I’m averaging a 6 pound loss a month these days. Six pounds a month at 60 years old–I’m so thankful to have finally learned that grains, potatoes, and sugar (GPS as Dr Hallberg says) are the culprits and that we only needed the right information and the right support in order to lose weight and heal our blood sugars and feel so much better.
I have to say thank you to my mama & sister who were so supportive during my visit this month. In past visits, we were all into cake & pie & pasta & bread and well, you get the picture. . . But we had a great visit even without the bad carbs, which again helped me learn that going low-carb actually means eating lots of full-fat healthy foods, not being hungry, and feeling satisfied and happy–not deprived! I even lost a pound while I was there on vacation!
PJ made this wonderful loaded cauliflower casserole. Mama made a yummy almond flour biscuit and Jeff grilled hot wings for us. And did I mention the fresh strawberries from Peggy’s u-pick farm??
Let’s see, what else have we been eating? Fathead pizza is one of my favorites. Yes,pizza! No, they don’t deliver it from Antonio’s–unfortunately, but maybe one day?? Actually, someone should talk to them about that. Anyway, until Antonio’s finds their way to low-carb, fathead is easy to put together and well worth the effort.
And this lemon cloud pie was a hit!
