Down a further 0.6 kg / 1.3 lbs since Thursday! I don't usually weigh myself more than once a week, but with the change to eating low carb/high protein/fat I want to keep an eye on the scales - because eating this much fat makes me feel like I should be putting weight ON rather than losing it. So far, it looks like my worries are totally pointless. This week I have seen the biggest loss ever, 1.7 kg /3.75 lbs.
I've been experimenting with some low-carb recipes; yesterday we had the yummiest "lasagne"- the usual bolognaise style sauce, with thinly sliced courgette instead of pasta sheets, a few tablespoons of full fat cream instead of the bechamel sauce, and loads of grated jarlsberg cheese on top. It was, dare I say it, even BETTER than "normal" lasagne. I served it with asparagus spears sauteed in butter. I guess if you use aubergine instead of courgette it would be very much like a moussaka.
Also, whipped cream with cottage cheese and a few drops of sweetener makes a yummy low carb dessert. A very good substitute for what we Norwegians call "riskrem".
I haven't posted progress pics in a while, so here are photos from today, at 74.4 kg / 164 lbs. 10.6 kg / 23.4 lbs lost:
It makes me CRINGE, but I am adding these "before" photos to this post as a comparison - to remind myself how far I have come already. At 85 kg / 187 lbs:
