40 pounds down!

I know my progress has been extremely slow over the past 6 months but honestly I am fine with that. My initial weight loss was a result of being very dedicated to a low carb ketogenic style diet.  When I was eating like that, the weight seemed to melt off.  After March of this year I started easing myself back into eating carbs and am proud that I was able to maintain the weight I had lost while not being as strict with my diet. Now I am ready to move to the next phase of weight loss and am about to start my low carb diet again. Especially after weighing in at 195 today which officially marks 40 pounds lost from my highest weight! 

I made the mocha overnight oats from my reblog a couple days ago

I had to switch up the recipe a little bit though.  Instead of chia seeds I used flax meal.  I also used unsweetened coconut milk in place of the skim and greek yogurt and a packet of sweet and low instead of the honey because I didn’t have any. It was good but it needed something else.  Thinking I might add cherries to it next time I make it. I really want to try the pumpkin recipe also!

Overnight oats are so convenient when I have to work 5am shifts. I love not having to worry about getting up and making something to eat, I can just grab it and eat in on my way. 

And speaking of work and chia seeds, we finally started carrying them! I’m excited to try them out!!

Been stuck around 196-200 pounds which is frustrating. I woke up today and felt pretty good about how my stomach is looking though. Wish I could lose some fat from my arms.
