Time to hit the reset button again. Carbs have been my downfall the last week and a half. I can’t seem to stop. Today I did pretty well in limiting myself. Tomorrow I turn that into a streak. Back on the wagon.

Lately it’s kale—mixed up in green smoothies or in my favorite broccoli & kale slaw salad from Trader Joe’s.


Roasted broccoli

  • Keto day 106

    Officially down 50lbs since January 1, 2021.
    It's a good step in the right direction.

    Today I made tomato and cheese stuffed chicken breast with a Caesar salad on the side.

    Preheat the oven to 400°F.

    I diced up a handful of grape tomatoes. Mixed them with 3oz softened cream cheese , a bout a cup of shredded cheddar, and a couple shakes of louisiana hot sauce.

    I butterfly'd the chicken breast, put the tomato and cheese mixture on one half and folded it back together.

    I seasoned both sides with cajun seasoning and placed it in a lightly oiled rimmed baking dish.

    I cooked it for 20 minutes.

    This is a super easy recipe, done in under a half hour, and always delicious!

You and I are in about the same position. Looking to cross under the 300 mark before this Transformer is over. Let's do it together and show everyone else who the bosses are!

I have dropped 4.3 points on the BMI scale. Just another 7.1 to go to get out of the obese category. (That’s another 50 lbs) So, say by the end of the year? I will be doing another of these DietBets after this one ends. This 6 month thing seems to keep me focused well on the long term weight loss. All of you wonderful people posting all your celebrations, sweaty workout pictures, musings, struggles, and all that, keeps me on track!

Thank you everyone!

I've got 6.7% to drop in order to qualify as "overweight" instead of "obese". About 45lbs. It will be a long road, but I'll be doing another Transformer too. We'll make it.


Congrats on all your success. Keep up the good work!:muscle:

Fastest approval ever from a weigh in. I haven’t had a cheeseburger in almost 3 months so today I am treating myself. I haven’t been avoiding foods so much as limiting, staying away from fast food, only drinking water etc. I was kind of hoping the burger wouldn’t taste good, but it’s delicious 😂😂
Easter Sunday so I’m sure the scale will show it next week, but being so close to the next goal, I figured I’ll be ok

Carol R.

I had a burger today too, but no cheese...and fully dressed with all the veggies. And skipped the fries. So only a little bad, not all the way ;)

I am feeling very accomplished today. Got some appointments scheduled. Got rid of my period gain as of this a.m. Got my first dose of vaccine! And got my steps in for the day!

This is the best part of the increased energy from this weight loss process!

Anyone else getting more done since you started this journey?

Great job and wonderful NSV --Energy! And I'm there with you. I have much more energy and mental bandwidth now compared to when we started in January. Go go energizer bunny!


Yes!!!! Definitely. Carrying around 12 pounds less than Jan 1st is a great thing!!!!

You will be splitting my money this month, but hopefully not next month. Any ideas for controlling hormone cravings? Been getting my period every 17 days, so lots of cravings. Yes I know I need to see a doc about it. Trying to get an appointment if you aren't pregnant is difficult in my area.

Quaker rice crisps have that sweetness - depending on the flavor - but are also low calorie

I eat an apple with cinnamon and fruit dip (unsweet Greek yogurt, tablespoon of peanutbutter, and cinnamon mixed together really good)

The last 2 hours all I want is cake, sour patch kids and sour worms. I’m not giving in but dammm these cravings are not helping. I even drank an extra bottle of water. Nothing grrrr

Have a Gummi vitamin instead? Still has some sugars but also, you know, vitamins.


Howdy! I'm chiming in here, Persianmama, because of an earlier response you gave to someone else on an unrelated topic but I wanted to make sure I told you directly. I take Blood Builder by Megafoods for my anemia (caused by heavy monthly blood loss). Before I started taking it, I would occasionally have to get infusions or transfusions when i was really bad. I tried regular iron tabs which made me sick to my stomach and my body didn't absirb well. Blood Builder causes me absolutely no stomach issues (been taking it for about 7 years) and my heme numbers went from 4 on a regular basis to about 11 within about 6 weeks. It was insanely quick. If im good about taking them daily, my blood work stays good even with my excessive losses each month.
