Thursday Thoughts, July 25th


Happy Thursday a/k/a Friday eve friends!  Wow!  Is it just me or does this week seem to be flying by?  After watching some vloggers that I follow on YouTube move more toward low carb and remembering that my cardiologist told me that I should focus on eating lower carb to help with my weight loss.  For the most part, I don't eat a ton of carbs, but looking back, after my cardiologist said that, I noticed I started incorporating more carbs into my meal plan.  Not that it isn't allowed with WW but I have realized that I'm not doing as well as I would like.  For the time being, I'm going to focus on lowering my carbs daily.  My hope is that it will kick my weight loss into a higher gear until I can get my workouts back fully under control.  I know I want to start strength training again as well, but it's going to take me a minute to get everything to line back up.

Tuesday night, I prepared a low carb breakfast casserole.  There isn't a lot to it and I would have added some veggies, but I think until I do a little more research, I'm going to focus on the basics.  I purchased Chris and Heidi Powell's books years ago and I think I will use some of the options they list as my baseline.  It will give me a good place to start anyway.  I have done a little research about doing low carb and WW.  There are already things that I don't give in on.  I made the switch to higher fat milk from skim milk and went back to using butter years ago.  These are things I don't give on.  The fact of the matter is that I will gladly take the point hit if I want a little butter on something or a little milk.  I am curious to see what will happen with my weight loss with this change.  At the beginning of the year I noted that I really wanted to hit my weight loss goal this year and I think this may be a way to move forward in that direction.  The big trick is trying to do lower carb after DD returns.  I know I can do things like zoodles and spaghetti squash, but I will have to work at things to make it a little easier for all of us.  DH and I have been having chicken from time to time with our lunch, so I am going to start taking time to make some protein of some sort for us.  Honestly, I haven't tried to eat low carb in many years.  I'm looking forward to this experiment.  Have you ever tried low carb?  Were you successful?  I'm not sure I want to go so far as to do keto, but lower carb for sure.  Have a great day!

  1. I love me my carbs....but I KNOW that I have to keep the amount that I eat in check (insert sounds of sobbing right here). It is difficult sometimes..but the desire to be healthy, thin and fit outweighs it....most days!!!

  2. I have never tried low-carb because I love bread. :) I count calories, and I figure if I am working toward a healthier diet, then that's good enough. And hard enough!
