I had my six weeks check up today. Everything looks good! I saw the midwife/np and then the dr came and talked to me as well. They both went on about how bad of a vbac candidate I had been and how low my chances of success were. They said I really defied the odds.
I was starting to get really frustrated with my lack of weight loss. I've continued to eat low carb, but had stalled out and it was suggested that I try a coffee fast. So, for the last two days, I have eaten nothing but coffee, heavy whipping cream, coconut oil and Splenda until 3 or 4 pm and then kept my carbs under 20g. Yesterday I made a batch of deviled eggs and today I had chicken livers cooked in bacon fat and breaded with coconut flour. I also had some pulled pork. I cannot get over the difference. My belly has gone down and my pants are loose! My blood sugars have been amazing. I've been staying between 60-90. I would still like to lose a few more and lose the love handles, but I'm very excited about making progress.
I've been trying out some new recipes this week and thought I'd share one. I thought I'd try a Sausage Broccoli Chowder. I left out the pasta and added ground beef, and it was amazing!
