Low carb menu, weigh-in and reactions to weight loss

- Two sausage patties with a cheese omelet
- Parmesan-breaded pork chop with low carb honey mustard
- Two tuna patties with mayo and low carb ketchup

I weighed in at 197.6. Yay! I'm on the right track. Last Wednesday, I was up to 203 point-something, so I'm definitely moving in the right direction. Eating mostly meat really does well for my body. Also, my daily walks with the dogs make me feel so good, especially this week with the weather being in the 60's.

This weekend, I'm going to see a lot of my relatives that I haven't seen in at least a year, so it will be interesting to say the least. I hope they don't make too big of a deal about my weight loss. If I'm good enough now, that I've lost over 100 lbs, then what about before? sort of a deal. It's my mom's side of the family and weight is always a hot button issue. Did you see so-and-so? kind of thing... Oh, well... Don't get me wrong, it's FUN when people notice and acknowledge my hard work, but there is kind of a fine line. But it really doesn't matter... I'm doing what I'm doing to be happier and healthier and the nicer body is just a side effect to that. I just hate how our society puts skinnier as better.

It's my body and I get to decide how I will respond to the situation. It will actually be fun, I'm thinking. I'm excited to show off my wonderful girlfriend to the family. She is just so lovable and everybody eats her up, so that is actually the least of my worries. I have SUCH a huge family... My mom is one of nine kids and my dad is one of eight kids, and most of them had kids, so I have a slew of aunts, uncles and cousins. I want to do some thrifting on Friday to get some cute clothes to wear, because most of my summer tops are size XL and I'm into a Large now, plus I need new shorts. Especially when I'm still losing weight, I can't see going to a high-end store for my clothes when the thrift store has so many great options.


  1. Going to the thrift store is going to be so much fun. Can't wait!


  2. You can respond with confidence. I remember wanting to hide from family members who were overly concerned with how everyone else looked. It's much easier when you feel confident. :)

  3. @Oct I agree with you. She should feel confident. She looks awesome, and people are going to react to her. It's hard though, you always want to hear people tell you that you were always good enough.
