Countdown to 100lbs-Gone-Forever – 12 Left!
This post brought to you by the number:
For those of you who don’t remember what this is all about.. go here. This post is proof positive that I haven’t given up! Weighed in at 242 yesterday. 230 gets me to 100 pounds lost from my highest weight of 330. Booyah!
I’m happy to report that I’ve finally been able to replace the reduced-sugar ketchup I was buying. Finally succeeded in making a ketchup at home that I like, based on this recipe. (I just used the tomato paste, ACV, seasonings, stevia, and water to thin). I have also given up yogurt and the flax muffins I was having. I’m hoping to replace the yogurt w/ other fermented foods – even learning how to make sauerkraut, and I learned the flax was bloating my stomach horribly.
So, what am I eating – meat, eggs, unlimited low-carb veggies, mustards, homemade ketchup & mayo, herbs/seasonings. I believe tomatoes and avocado are botanically fruits, but those would be the only fruits. No dark chocolate, no bacon, no dairy except grass-fed butter, no honey. I’m quitting the cranberry juice & will see how my kidneys do on just the concentrate pills. I am having one mug of black coffee, homemade stevia-sweetened lemon/limeade, and iced/hot teas. Once a week, I’m going carbier w/ a small serving of sweet potatoes.
Trying to keep it as simple as possible, even though I know the above doesn’t sound simple. I look at what I’m eating as 99% protein and veg – simple. If the weight keeps coming off well, I’ll keep at this until I’m in the 100′s, at the very least.
Emotionally, I’m still struggling. The 5-HTP is helping, eating clean is helping. But, I am still haunted by what happened in Colorado. I’ve been having almost panic-attacks whenever something reminds me of that time. We’ve also had more health scares in our family, and I’m having a hard time coping. Definitely going to look into some therapy.
Overall, things are rocking. Hoping to be able to bring you a few new numbers very soon!
