Hoping to Inspire You!

Since I started this low carb lifestyle, I have lost about 25 lbs.  During February of 2011 and wrestling season, I saw a picture of me that was in the paper.  That was just scary.  I realized that I was way bigger than I should be.  I am 5' 8" and weighing 168 was too much!  So my sister and I went on this low carb way of eating and the pounds came off quickly at first.  I understand that the first 15 pounds or so I lost was water weight, but hey, that's all right with me.  The rest of the weight has come off gradually.  I eat about 50 to 70 carbs a day and am still losing weight slowly.  I now weigh 142.  Now I actually look like I should look.  I even put on a pair of Levi's today that I couldn't wear before.  They are loose.  Yeah!  I need to lose maybe another five or ten.  As long as you plan ahead, you can do this.  There are even times when eating low carb is not an option, just know that you can do better the next day.

Good luck to you all!


  1. Hi! I just found out from my doctor, that I have a medical condition that prevents me from ovulating every month. She has told me to eat between 70g to 80g of carbs per day. I usually eat between 30g and 65g now. I really appreciate your recipes because it is actually things that I will eat! Thank you so much!

  2. Thank you Emily! I hope everything works out for you. I truly have completely changed my eating lifestyle. I think it is great that I can keep the weight off without even thinking about it now. My 13 year old son reminds me that even though I don't need carbs....he does! I have to make him cookies now and then.
