Low Carb, High Fat Lifestyle

The Lindora program recommends that you start your meal plan by dedicating the first 3 days to consuming protein rich foods.   I decided to restart the program today.  I can usually see great results after the first 3 days of the program- I can expect about 4-6 lbs weight loss the first week.   I have changed the program up a bit by using Atkins products instead of Lindora prodcuts.  Atkins products are much more economical and, they taste is great!   Please keep in mind that this IS NOT the Lindora program, I have changed it up a bit and it seems to work great!!

 In 2015, I lost close to 30 lbs in 6 weeks by following a lchf (low-carb high fat) lifestyle.   This is what a typical day looks like:

8am: Hardboiled Egg
11am: Atkins snack bar
1pm: 4oz of chicken breast
3pm: Greek yogurt-Chobani Vanilla
5pm: String Cheese
7pm: 4oz of Chicken Breast
9pm: Hardboiled egg

Today is Day 1....wish me luck!

I always keep my promises....

I'm back!!

My beautiful baby boy was born in April.  I'm ready to lose the baby weight and then some.

I gained soooo much weight while pregnant.  I started at 166 and delivered at 227.  You read that right, 227!  Since my son was born, I have been able to shed 35lbs, 25 of which came off within 3 weeks of delivering.  You know how it goes, swollen uterus, water retention etc...

I now find myself at 192, still very far from my goal.  In a perfect world I would love to hit 140lbs.   For now, I've set a realistic goal of 165, which would put me around my pre-baby weight.  I started the Lindora meal plan about a week and a half ago.  When I started I was 197, I've lost 5lbs thus far. Progress!!!

I have also been walking 2.5 miles everyday and plan to slowly build up.

If anyone is interested in finding out a little more about the plan, please comment.  I am happy to share if interested.   Is anybody out there? :)
