As each day passes, it's getting easier and easier to eat the restricted diet. Don't get me wrong, I am hoping and praying that phase 3 comes fast, because I'd rather eat to maintain. It's just been easier to not be as tempted.
So today I hopped on the scale and it shows 319.6! That's an exact 20 lbs loss. I was going to wait until Friday to blog again, but I felt like this was a milestone that should be visually celebrated.
I will put up my before and afters once I finish the full 6 weeks on restricted. That should be around August 16th.
I made my own version of a apple/strawberry pie last night. It wasn't bad but could have used some Stevia. I'm not allowing stevia at this point to try and lower my blood sugars.
1 gala apple
9-10 med strawberries
dash of nutmeg (I would reduce or cut this out. It was a little overpowering)
dash of cinnamon
2 crushed up melba toasts
Bake at 375 for 25-30 mins and serve.
