I get up this morning, stand on the scale bleary eyed and look down expecting to see the old Err message telling me I am over 400 pounds.

Instead I see this! 399.7lb


I can use a normal scale again.

This means that since  started keto I have gone from around 425 pounds down to under 400 pounds, I hope to never see a 4 in the beginning of my scale again.

I was on the verge of wanting to give up due to not being able to just grab a snack and not really seeing results.
I know, sad huh, less than a month in and wanting to give up. This was the motivation I needed to keep me going.

One of the biggest stumbling blocks for us has been the ages old question, "whats for dinner".

Well in our case breakfast is easy, bacon and eggs of some sort, simple. Modify with a sausage once in a while for differences.
Lunch is usually a sandwich made with provolone cheese crisp bread (Microwave a slice of provolone until it is brown and stops bubbling, remove, sit on level surface, enjoy crunchy no carb sandwich fixings holder).
We never know, I have made up some go to meals but those get boring, and we have yet to be able to do the cauliflower mashed potatoes perfectly, they keep coming out mushy and cauliflowery tasting.

As this goes on I plan to grab some Keto Standard recipes that my family likes, post them here and begin a cook book system for them, setting up needed ingredients etc. The hardest thing so far has been buying foods which can be quickly cooked as we seem to be constantly on the go.
