    Dinner last night, bf’s plate as usual. Made sirloin strips, rice, stewed chickpeas, and salad. I didn’t serve my own food because I wasn’t too hungry so I just picked off of his plate minus the rice.

    Thanks for the info! Is there interaction with the trainer? I heard the with beachbody you get assigned a trainer but I don't know much else about that. Also, did you find you were losing weight by working out this way instead of hitting the gym?

    Full day of eating: Late breakfast: avo toast on zero carb bread with an egg and sautéed mushrooms (finished it all) Lunch & Dinner: Sautéed onions and green peppers on top of salad with 4oz chicken breast, and Trader Joe’s zero guilt guac. (I split this meal in two) Snack: Iced matcha latte with 1 1/2 cups of almond milk and zero cal pineapple syrup. Total cals eaten: 690 Protein: 62g Net carbs: 25 g Fat: 32g Today was my second day seriously working out and I’m dead. It’s not much but then again it’s something. Did a walk on my lunch break and an hour workout at home. Burned everything I ate, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing?

    My bf went to Aldi this morning because they were all out yesterday and all they had today was the multi seed. It’s something!

    Yesterday’s dinner was salmon and salad. Ate one piece of fish and the whole salad. The other piece will be for today’s dinner. Also has one piece of my bfs crunchy tuna roll.

    Hahahaha I'd love to!! Yessss omgggg I'm a sucker for a good steamed lobster, or any seafood really! Seafood is the one thing I can eat everyday and never get tired of. Your sister has some great restaurants near her! I'm currently in RI, close to the city so I'll usually venture out to Galilee for some fresh seafood. And that's great that you're now able to enjoy lobster without the butter! I also find it better that way You know, I've never had Johnny cakes before but I love cornbread so I imagine I'd like it!

    Gianelli's Hot Italian chicken sausage at Aldi. I'm not sure if every Aldi carries this but its good! When I use to have a hard time getting my protein in and needed something quick I would buy this. I'd would squeeze out the sausage from the casing, break it up/saute it, then scramble an egg in it. I've also tried their spinach and feta chicken sausages and I personally don't like them, but m aybe its just me. I know they're popular.

    Yesterday I ended up making a veggie broccoli crust pizza instead of a stir fry. The whole pizza was 569 cals and I ate two slices so about 70 cals a slice. If I used tomato sauce instead of Alfredo it would be much less.

    My odd meals from Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I’m sure I’ll have something similar today. Ive been trying to use up everything in my fridge. Tuesday I made a stir fry with the leftover cabbage I had from the dumplings and Wednesday and Thursday I did something similar with onions, peppers, and tomatoes and just threw it on top of romaine. I’m able to finish everything minus the meat. I usually eat about 2 ounces of it. Pre surgery I always needed to eat/make these immaculate meals but I see food so much differently. Sometimes it just needs to be nutritious and do its job, nothing more. I’ve learned that not everyday there has to be this perfect meal, just something that fills you up. I also find my joy in cooking for others and that’s good enough for me too.

    I get these at my local grocery store but I think you can find them at walmart. If you're not a sweets person I think these banana bites are great to satisfy that small craving. My sweet tooth wakes up at night when Im about to go to bed so usually one bite will do the trick lol

    Right Rice anyone?

    So pre surgery I was a rice junkie! I ate rice every day with every meal, even breakfast so I get you wanting to find an alternative. I would try cauliflower rice and seasoning it up, maybe a caulirice stir fry just to trick your mind and taste buds. But I agree with @Arabesque and watch out for the swelling, especially being 1 month post op. I found it being easier cutting it out completely. Sometimes when I'm at a party or family get together Ill have a bite or two but no more than that. With time you'll grow to love your new eating habits and diet

    Im an Aldi-holic but I just recently started shopping at Trader Joes and I'm loving it. Not sure what took me so long when its only 25 minutes away from my house. Anyways, their guac is one of my favorite items. It's seriously addicting and you don't even taste the yogurt in it, and I hate yogurt.

    Breakfast from yesterday and today. Pic 1: Avocado toast on zero carb bread with boiled quail eggs and sautéed mushrooms. Pic 2: My usual breakfast/lunch when working in the office. Scrambled tofu with mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, and onions with half an avocado.

    Never had tofu skin before but it doesn’t really have much of a taste. I really like it and it does the trick! This is the one I purchased: Yamamotoyama Sushi Soy Wrapper, Original, 20 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00886GG24/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_l2wwFbWD50SCJ

    Making Asian/Asian inspired meals this week. Keeping it going with pork chive and cabbage dumplings. I ate 3 of the steamed and was pretty full. Didn’t touch the fried.

    Same here! And dumplings 🥟 but this was the bf’s craving this time. When I’m craving something I’ll usually try to find a healthier way to make whatever it is I want or have a bite or two. A while back I was craving dumplings/gyozas like crazy so I found this recipe: https://www.lowcarbingasian.com/keto-japanese-potstickers-gyoza/ Gyoza with soy paper! Maybe you can use the soy paper concept and make the filling more wonton like?

    Made wonton soup. This is the bfs plate. Ate 3 wontons and had mostly broth and baby bok choy. I feel like I made a million wontons 😅

    Cookout with friends yesterday. I made the wings, cheesecake, wonton cups, and BBQ ribs (forgot to take a pic) Ate a little of everything I brought except the ribs and had my friends steak skewers. Also snacked on some salami and cheese. Every time I get out of my eating routine and prepared meals I always feel like crap the next day, and not physically but mentally. Also don’t mind my ugly mini cheesecakes. I thought I had cupcake liners and turns out I didn’t so I had to make liners out of foil. I also didn’t have enough time to drizzle and decorate each one more so I kinda did a crazy panic drizzle in the pan 😅
  25. Wow I wish I started at that weight! It seems like you're doing really good! I hit my one year on 8/5 and started at 375. I currently weight 226. As far as issues, none except for the slow weight loss. I really need to start working out more or else I feel like I'm going to stay at this weight forever.
