Steve, that is fantastic! I know how difficult it can be to lose that much weight.

I'm looking forward to those "before and after" photos.

Wow, Steve, congratulations!!

And congrats to all of you who are making these dietary lifestyle changes. I can't imagine the will power involved, especially on a cooking forum where people are posting any and everything. You all are a strong bunch.

That's great Steve. I have also lost weight, about 60#, but there won't be any after pics until the next 90# are gone.

Wow, Craig, that's awesome! You're going in the right direction, and that's what matters.

I have more than 50 lbs to lose myself, but I honestly don't know what my goal weight is. My guess is I probably have another 25-30 to go after the 50. It's hard to tell, though. My body is a lot different now than it was 20 years ago when I was last at a comfortable weight (pre-desk-job days).

By the way, here's an FYI for those of you on keto, and who have a Jimmy John's in the area. They will make any of their sandwiches as "un-wiches". Instead of bread, they stuff the fixings into a lettuce wrap. I've had these a couple of times and they're pretty tasty. Coincidentally, the Fat/Carb/Protein numbers hit all my macros right on the head.

Bravo to you, Craig. That's quite an accomplishment.

Thanks, we have a Jimmy Johns here.

I'm having two lettuce, meat and cheese wraps with garlic parmesan butter.

Congrats on the weight loss! I also keep track of calories - old habits die hard! I believe they have 67 calories (Energy = 67 kcals)

CraigC, congrats to you too! 60 pounds is 240 sticks of butter! Wow!

I have some Strawberry spread, 40 cal per 1 tablespoon with 9 grams of carbs, made with sugar. I stirred 2 tablespoons into 6 ounces of whipped cream cheese with 2 tablespoons of butter. Hot Dang!
That sounds really yummy too! What do you spread it on?

So I walked in a meeting today and see four boxes of pizza and was able to say no thanks. I've never been a huge pizza fan, but I never saw pizza look so good. I'm feeling good and my bg is dropping so that is where I pull my willpower! (Mind you - it has only been eight days for me though.)

I don't spread it on anything. I've been very successful at removing breads and crackers out of my diet.

Lunch today was fantastic: Shredded cabbage and carrots, sliced crimini mushrooms, pulled pork and red wine vinegar & olive oil.

I would have taken the pizza and scraped the toppings off onto a plate for myself.
