Trick or Treat?!

IMG_1048.JPG
10 months and 1 day into LCHF and I’ve reached my initial goal!

I’m beyond excited and proud of sticking to my guns. I haven’t been ‘perfect’ but I have been consistent. If I stray, I pull myself back. If I slip, I get back up.

As of 6am this morning I am below 100kg… Or as my friends used to call it ‘the Hundgy Club‘.

I have not weighed this little since I have become an adult. Nearly 20 years I have been walking around (slowly and very sweaty) over 100kgs. Unbelievable. What a waste. Well not anymore.

I have surrendered my membership to ‘the Hundgy Club‘ and I shall NEVER join back up!

So today, on INTERNATIONAL CANDY DAY (aka Halloween) skip the treat, do a trick and watch YOUR world change too! 😃

Viva La Fat!!!

LCHF Couple Lost Over 230lbs

As my blog followers know, at the start of the year I began my LCHF journey and 8 weeks later my partner joined the lifestyle too. Eight months on we have lost more between us than we each now weigh!!! Just over 105kgs lost (231.5lbs or 16.5 stone).

To say this has changed out lives is an understatement. Every day offers more now that our bodies and health are able to make the most out of each opportunity life presents.

I remember days where walking from the car to a seat at the park to look at the ocean was an effort. Now we bike ride to the beach and walk/jog a few KMs no trouble at all… While still being able to talk (not puffing for breath).

I’d like to challenge anyone that has been struggling with their health/weight not to wait to make a New Years resolution but to commit to change today. Once you get started you’ll be amazed how easy it is and how quick you WILL SEE RESULTS!

Viva La Fat 😉

For those who read my post last week and are wondering how I went this week… 2.4kgs lost this week.

Happy International Bacon Day!

The last week I’ve allowed myself to eat pretty much anything I felt like. No rules just ‘enjoying’ various foods.

I use the word ‘enjoying’ lightly as most of the time the post carb eating experience left me feeling bloated, lethargic and generally yuck.

One week on and I’ve gained just over 2kgs now weighing in at 105.4kg.

From today onwards I’m back into the LCHF swing and will post another weigh-in in one week to show the effects of good food choices vs bad.

What better day to recommit to eating well and looking after ourselves than on International Bacon Day 🙂

This morning it’s scrambled eggs with butter and smokey bacon.

Check back in one week to see how effective this lifestyle really is (accountability is king) and in the mean time… ENJOY some Bacon 😉

SIX MONTHS LCHF

Today marks six months of living LCHF. Over all it’s been remarkably easy and simple to stick to. Even on the days where I mess up and slip it’s just a matter of making the right choices at the next meal, not beating myself up.

As of today’s weigh in I am 103.8kg. Pretty stoked with that! Just bought myself a pair of size 36″ jeans and a t-shirt from a ‘cool’ store. Pretty stoked with that too!

It’s in my blood now, it’s a way of life not a diet. There will be days when I choose other foods but on the whole carbs can expect limited access to
My mouth from now til kingdom come 🙂

Day 153 Weigh In

I decided recently that when I reached the next milestone of my weight dropping below 110kgs I would shave my beard. The last time I did this I immediately was wishing it back as where I should have had ‘a’ chin I discovered a few chins. Lol.

We’ll today I hoped on the scales for my weigh in and saw 109.4kg! I can’t believe I’m so close to being out of the 100kg club.

I wanted to put a before after photo of my face with weight loss but sans hair however I never really got any photos without my beard as I used to hide behind it to ‘cover my fat’.

The best I could do was this shot from a few years back before I grew my dreads. Vast improvement I’m sure you’ll agree.

For all those worrying, YES the beard shall return 🙂 I just wanted to see what lay beneath. I personally think I rock the beard… And not to hide my chins anymore but because it suits me 😉

Day 139 Weigh In

Another week has passed and it’s time to weigh in… Drum roll… 110.9kg (244.5lbs). I am literally in awe of how easy and quickly the weight has fallen off while following the LCHF lifestyle. It’s not even halfway through the year and I am now only 11kgs off my goal weight.

After weighing in I decided to take some bacon, eggs and tomatoes down to the beach for a morning fry up with a view!

Soooo blessed to live in Australia and need to make a point of enjoying this more often.

Check out the 143kg (315lbs) chubby man below. What a difference! You can even see it in the arms and wrists. I don’t wear my watch now because it needs 5 links removed so it can fit.

Cheesy Bacon & Egg Cups + Weigh-In

Let’s start with my weight… After my Easter sojourn in carb and junk land I’m 1 week solid back on LCHF. This mornings weigh-in was quite encouraging 113.9kgs, only 300gms off where I was before my Easter weight gain. Being a bit of a geek there’s nothing quite like a graph to get me motivated so here’s how things are looking for me now:

Next weigh-in should reflect a decent loss and the lightest weight I’ve seen as an adult.

Now on to today’s delicious breakfast. Cheesy Egg & Bacon Cups.

20140503-120530.jpg
I took some streaky bacon and lined two muffin tin cups with two slices each. One slice around the cup the other across the base.

I then added one egg per cup and topped with an egg whisked with cream and black pepper.

20140503-120839.jpg
I folded the excess bacon over the top and baked in a 180°c oven for 25mins.

At this stage I removed the cups to a flat tray and sprinkled with mozzarella cheese, then returned them to the oven at 210°c for a further ten minutes until golden and delicious.

The flavour from the streaky bacon had infused nicely into the eggs and the texture of the whole eggs on the base and light fluffy egg and cream on top was so good. I’ll definitely be whipping these babies up again soon!
