Christmas is only a few days away. There are lots of parties to go to and lots of foods that are hard to pass up. My plan is to stay on my low carb meal plan as much as I can. There will be some cheating but we have to reward ourselves for doing well most of the time. Eat sensibly and stay away from the carbs if you can. Here's a delicious dish that we've come up with that is very carb friendly. It's Bacon Carbonara with asparagus. We used spaghetti squash in place of pasta. It tastes delicious. So far I'm down 21 pounds since October 1. Hoping to get down a few more and stabilize. I'm trying to loose the weight in hopes that my cholesterol will go down and I'll be healthier. It's all about motivation and self control when eating. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
