Weight Loss: Goal Setting, Realizations and Changes

My original goal weight is just 25 pounds away from where I want to be.  I probably will come up with another goal once I achieve my first goal, but let’s start there. I knew I was making some bad choices which was keeping me from where I wanted to be. I also knew that…

Cooking: Broccoli Casserole

I came across a recipe similar to this on Facebook and decided I would give it a try but with my own flare to it.  It came out delicious and it’s low carb, a win, win in our book! Ingredients: 1 Bag of Frozen Broccoli 1/2 Block of Cream Cheese 1/4 to 1/2 Cup of…

Cooking: Matcha Tea Latte (Keto Style)

I can’t take credit for finding this delicious Matcha MCT Oil Powder by Perfect Keto.  The credit goes to my sister, who found this shortly after starting her own keto journey.  When she told me about this I knew I had to get it and so I did.  Once it came in I knew I…

Cooking: Cuban Sandwich Quesadillas

I had been craving a Cuban Sandwich for some time but obviously it was not an option being on the Keto diet.  My saving grace has been low carb tortillas in place of bread.  You can make essentially anything into a quesadilla, especially sandwiches.  So I went for it.  Luckily during our last Costco trip…

Cooking: Low Carb Biscuits

I follow a few fellow “Ketoers” on Instagram and one of my favorites is @ketolchfmonkey.  She posted a recipe for these super delicious low carb biscuits that I just had to try, because let’s be honest who doesn’t love biscuits?  I highly suggest you try them, I cannot taste a difference between a regular biscuit…

Cooking: Hot Chocolate (Traditional and Keto Style)

Ever since I can remember, my Momma would make us the best homemade hot chocolate.  It was always my favorite and so much better than that packaged stuff you can buy in the store.  Once on Keto, I really realized that her traditional version would not work for me, but a revised version sure would! …

Weight Loss: Progress Makes Perfect Pt. 2

I figured it was time for another progress update and while scrolling through inspirational Instagram weight loss accounts an idea came to me, I wanted to include a  picture of of Jon and I at our heaviest next to a photo of us now in the post.  So the hunt began and I feverishly looked…

Weight Loss: Diary of a Fat Girl

I own it, I am fat, I was fat and I may always be what society deems as fat and I am okay with that.  There is a stigma among fat people and we all know it but this post is not about that. Through my weight loss journey I have come across some things…
