Hello friends, hubby and I have been on the FT since Monday Oct 3rd we weighed ourselves yesterday and big drum roll..... hubby lost 8 lbs & I lost 1.4 :) :) :) I think I am even more excited than hubby about his weight loss he just looks so good. Making food ahead of time has been the key to our success. Before starting FT I thought it would be strange and a big departure from what we usually eat, but it's really not. We have eaten salads, stir fry's, chicken soup, coconut bread, nuts & seeds, chicken, breakfast turkey sausage, eggs, baby bell cheese, and a little steak.
Yesterday I woke up feeling like I wanted to make a treat everything on Lauren's healthy indulgence's blog looks so amazing and I often have the ingredients on hand that she uses the most. I made grain free chocolate zucchini bread, and it was yummers. Instead of flour I made an nut meal by grinding up some almonds and pecans, a little almond flour, and a little flax meal. I also used coconut oil and zucchini from last years garden. It was so delicious and other than grinding up some nuts it wasn't any more work to prepare than a regular zucchini bread. I am wondering if pumpkin bread would work well with almond or coconut flour and xylitol. As the weather changes I am craving pumpkin bread!!!
Since doing the bfc/ft I have lost 3 inches from my waist and 2 from my hips and around 10-15 lbs. I feel good about myself I hope to continue to lose fat and tone up my poochie and hips. I also hope to not gain it all back during the Fall/Winter/Holiday Season, I'm sure everyone can relate to that. I want to be able to navigate all the sweets and breads that are full of sugar and white carbs, that make us feel like we need to eat them because they only come out at the holidays.
