  • Low carb with bouts of keto, but main focus is low carb with lots of healthy fats, as many plant based as possible, and lean meats!

  • Today will be 5 weeks on low carb and while I was initially steadily losing, over the past two weeks I have gained a couple of pounds. Going to go back to the basics and see where this is happening. I know that fluctuations are normal, I just don't want going up to be the new trend. Still no acid reflux and still feel…

  • Happy Monday morning to everyone!! I am super excited for the fall challenge. Especially since I got some extra motivation on Friday afternoon when my husband and I went out for a little day date. We decided we'd really love to have another baby, and sooner rather than later. We have been working really hard to pay down…
  • Planning on doing at least three morning walks this week before taking my son to school. We enjoyed doing a couple of them last week and it was so nice just being able to do that together. He is 8 years old and is the sweetest little boy, and any chance to unplug and enjoy nature is a great way to refresh both the mind and…
  • I am following a LCHF diet plan so I have been experimenting a LOT with food. Here is one of my new go-to's! Keep in mind this is a low carb recipe, but can definitely be adapted if one is needing less fat and such! LOW CARB PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE Makes 4 servings: 3 Cups (720mL) Unsweetened Almond Milk 1 oz. (30mL) Heavy…
  • Good morning everyone!! Thank you all for the kind words! We have been enjoying our new routine with walking in the morning before school and it's made a big difference for both of us! I wanted to post that low carb pumpkin spice recipe, here it is!! LOW CARB PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE Makes 4 servings: 3 Cups (720mL) Unsweetened…

I feel like my body is adjusting to low carb so things are going to slow down weight wise, and I am now going on over four weeks being free of acid reflux! That to me is such a massive blessing!!

  • Good morning and Happy Tuesday y'all!! I need to play catch up since it's been a few days! I'll post the recipe for the keto PSL, it is DELICIOUS. Once I finish the Harry Potter decorations, I'll share a picture as well! I'm going to focus on making the boys some personalized cocoa cups today for their boo baskets, which…
  • I'm going to try my hand at a few Harry Potter DIY decor items for our home this weekend, so if it turns out well I'll post a picture! If not, I'll still post a picture with a warning :lol: one is going to be a sign that shows multiple famous areas in the books to put on the front porch with our fall decor (Hogwarts,…
  • Well, the Cauliflower Dip was absolutely AMAZING! The homemade tortilla chips turned out great too, I just cut our low carb tortillas like a pizza, used olive oil, salt, and pepper for the tortilla chips, air fryed half of the batch and baked the other. Both turned out good, and we like the crispness of the baked better!…
  • How many 5% Challenges have you done? 1 so far, the fall challenge will be my second! What do you like to do for fun? Crafting, hiking, video games, reading, playing with my kids and husband, and more! What major city do you live in or near? State? Near Atlanta, GA What are your health/fitness goals for this season? I…
  • One of the things I am struggling a little with as a newbie is having plenty of good on-the-go snacks available. My husband works in the field and needs to have his lunch not need to be maintained in a cold environment, so we are trying to think of snacks he can take. I have made little 'cheez its' and pepperoni chips, and…

  • @Tabatha_Cain Happy Birthday to your son tomorrow! How old is he going to be? And yes, I'm hoping the dip is amazing, we shall see! Figured I'll chop up some celery sticks and make us some tortilla chips out of a few of our low carb tortillas and I think both of those will pair well with it. I need to go to the grocery…
  • @Tabatha_Cain how did the weigh in go and your visit? One of the best side effects of weight loss is when your mentality shifts, such as becoming less self-concious about your stomach. I absolutely get that and am on that train with you now! Progress pictures, I've realized, have truly helped my brain see the reality for…
  • Hey everyone!! My name is Courtney and I am joining in on the September challenge! I'm super excited to be here!! :smiley:
  • Hey everyone! I just found this group and reviewed all of the information for new folks. Glad to be here!! My husband and I started a low carb lifestyle two weeks ago to the day. So far, the incredible amount of energy we've gained (after the initial 4 days of pure suck as we adjusted) and the fact that my chronic acid…
