2.01.13, Low Carb Diet Journal
I was happy to see my weight drop a pound and I weighed 132-1/2 lbs. this morning. I enjoyed my two cups of green tea and then I got started with drinking my water. One of these days I am going to remember to start keeping track of how much I am drinking.
I wanted something different for lunch so I asked my husband if he would make us coconut chicken strips. I helped by getting out three bowls and I poured coconut flour into one bowl, a mixture of egg and coconut milk in another, and shredded coconut in the last one while my husband finished up deep frying his potato chips. We had some potatoes that he wanted to use so he sliced a few in the grater and when they were ready, I grabbed a couple. They were delicious but they were too thick for potato chips so he took out the food processor and put the potatoes through it. When I finally got the delicious taste of potato out of my mouth and I knew I wasn't going to go back for more, my husband offered me one of his potato chips. I had to try it and it was really good. I was able to resist the rest of the potatoes and started making us a couple of salads.
My salad was made with romaine lettuce, almonds, avocado, celery, cucumber, and our homemade cilantro dressing. The chicken strips were made with two chicken breasts that were cut into strips. Each strip was dipped into the coconut flour, egg/coconut milk, and then the coconut. The recipe called for them to be baked in the oven but the deep fryer was already hot and ready so my husband deep fried them. The recipe did not ask for any spices but my husband added salt and pepper to them. They were delicious and since we have some left, I will be having them with my salad for lunch again tomorrow.
The weather was nice outside so I grabbed my food scraps bucket and headed outside to feed the animals. I wanted to clean my storage room because I couldn't put any of my Christmas stuff back until it was organized. I spent several hours working on it and it looks as if I will be spending several more since I still have a lot of shelves that still need to be cleaned up and organized. I did get all the stuff out of my house and into the storage room, but I ran out of time and did not get a chance to put any of it away.
I was expecting the baby for an overnight visit so my husband heated a couple of pieces of pork roast in the toaster oven. While they were warming up, he steamed some broccoli for us. When the broccoli was ready, he added butter to it and served me some in a bowl. Once the roast was warm, he drizzled some of the glaze over the top and served it to me on a saucer. I enjoyed my meal and still can't believe how much I love pork.

I'm Teri and I am 54 years old. I have been fighting my weight since I was fourteen, dieting my way all the way up to 236 lbs. I started my weight loss program on March 3, 2008, and at that time I was unable to get into the largest pair of jeans I owned, size 18W. I have lost close to 100 pounds, and I now wear a size 4 jeans. My diet and exercise program have me feeling better than I could have ever imagined and I did it without starving or depriving myself in any way.
I am getting myself into better shape and my goal of becoming fit and healthy is getting closer every day.
Here's a link to my Progress Photos.
