I'm happy to report that I'm down 18 pounds since the first of October. That includes almost 4 inches off the middle and one belt notch. Happiest about the belt notch actually!! I survived Thanksgiving eating Phyllis' home made dressing and mashed potatoes. The key was to get back on the low carb high healthy fat diet the next day. We even went to the movies and had popcorn, which isn't on our diet. But hey, you need to splurge once in a while to still have fun. We've been making some great meals and staying on the plan. Pictures below include Spaghetti Squash in place of pasta. We also used Spaghetti Squash in place of pasta with home made marinara meat sauce accompanied by roasted califlower and broccoli. We've been using califlower crust for pizza using chicken, alfredo sauce and cheese for a healthy alternative to traditional pizza crust. Our son made chicken with 40 cloves of garlic for us several years ago and we recreated his recipe for a healthy chicken main dish. You can eat healthy and loose weight without sacrificing some of the foods you enjoy. Let me know how you think the dishes we've made look to you! Healthy eating!
