Low-Carb Manna from Heaven

Oh my Gosh! I have discovered the most awesome thing ever.
I found this item in the clearance bread section of Walmart and the word "low carb" caught my eye. Well last night, as I waited for my husband to get home, my stomach started telling my brain I hadn't eaten dinner yet.
All I've wanted for days is pizza. So It hit me. Here's my recipe for the awesome, low carb, manna from heaven, pizza crackers.
1 piece of Lavash bread (8 carbs)
Any kind of cheese you want
Any kind of pizza topping you want
Put piece of lavash bread in the oven on "broil". Let it get golden brown and then take it out of the oven. Flip the bread over and cover the uncooked side w/ whatever topping you want. ( I chose provolone & colby jack cheese, sundried tomatoes, a few onions and peppers). Put it back into the oven and let the cheese melt and get a little bubbly.
Take it out and enjoy.
I love this recipe for the following reasons :
1) Only around 10 carbs for a really big piece of pizza
2) It has the crunchiness of pizza crackers, but smoothness of pizza
3) The bread is really really really good for you (flax seed)
4) It's satisfying and doesn't even taste low-carby.
So with that in mind visit your local Wal-Mart and find some Joseph's Lavash Bread....and enjoy.

When you have no internet at home...

SOOO much has happened in the couple of weeks. But with no internet access at home, my posts are becoming sparse. So here's the rundown of life's fun events.

~ The "miracle" medicine this month was more of a nighmare than a blessing. Horrible side effects. The highlight was spending a cumulative 3 hours crying in one day because...

~ The "miracle" medicine didn't work. Didn't work at all. AT ALL. So then I become depressed about it, especially thinking about taking more crazy drugs, so...

~ I started cheating on my diet in rebellion. The whole reason I went on this weight loss quest, was to aid my body in conceiving. When it was obvious that wouldn't be happening this month, my natural reaction was to eat as many carbohydrates as one person could eat. The bad thing was...

~ I ended up gaining 6 pounds from this.

So now I'm back on the diet and trying to avoid stress and cheating on my diet as much as possible...but thats not happening so well. I have a goal I want to reach, a total of 80 pounds lost. So far, I'm at 40...but I have to keep going and remind myself that this whole getting healthy thing is really worth not eating bread, and donuts, and candy bars, and potatoes, and .... oh my gosh.

This diet stinks.
