Cheeseburger meat loaf and buttered bacon green beans. This is by far one of the best things I’ve cooked in awhile!

New size!

I was craving brownies and instead of making them and eating them I decided to clean out clothes I never wear and trying on clothes that were too tight. So excited that I’ve gone down a pant size! Incredible feeling. So much more rewarding than eating a brownie.

I really had my heart set on a spaghetti squash this week, but they were all out at the store. This is my reaction when my mom surprised me with one when she got home.

Tonight’s amazing dinner is keto pizza! My crust was made with 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese, 1 dollop of cream cheese, 3/4 cup almond meal, and 1 egg. Melt cheese in a bowl. Let it cool and mix in other ingredients. It will become a dough like consistency. Spread out on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Cook at 425 degrees until golden and top with your favorite toppings! Mine included oregano, turkey sausage crumbles, pepperoni, onion, and green pepper.

Week 3 Check In

Starting week 3 today. I’m down to 251 (started the challenge at 256-255ish) So progress is slow going, but at least it’s going! I did go out on Saturday and had a cheat meal and drinks. Usually the cheat meal after eating keto for a few weeks helps shock my system and drop weight. However, since I drank it didn’t do much of anything. So at least I didn’t gain like I normally would when drinking. I think the water I kept chugging through out the night helped immensely. I hope I can kick it up a notch this week and make some good headway. I’d really like to hit 50 lbs by Christmas. I’m already halfway there so I think it might be possible!
