Shhh, I have lost 44 lbs and it is a secret!!!!

I have a secret... I have lost 44 lbs. I really do not want to talk about it with friends. I only talk about it with a few people. I have to ask myself why?
1. I am not sure I want people to know that I weighed 256 lbs. that is a Ginourmous number... If they see i have lost 44 lbs and I have 54 more to go... no I do not want to talk about it.
2. I do not want people to criticize how I lost the weight. Low Carb. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the food that I have eaten for the past 7 months. As soon as someone hears low carb they immediately think i feast on bacon and red meat for Breakfast lunch and dinner. That simply is not true. I eat eggs for breakfast. delicious eggs from my chickens. I eat lean meat and salad for lunch. For dinner I eat a small portion of lean meat and lots of fresh veggies. I can put full fat dressing on my salads. I can put butter on my veggies.
I do not have to count calories. Thank God! I hate counting calories.
3. I am not afraid of regaining the weight. Oddly enough. That does not concern me. I have pretty much found substitutes for my high carb favorites. I love Zoodles and do not mind eating them in place of pasta. Bread i have tried several recipes. although I miss a good crusty baguette, I am not feeling deprived. i can toast cloud bread and dip it in oil... If i feel the need although I have not yet. If I really want something I allow a cheat but try to do it once a week and for a nightly snack so that I can sleep it off and then the next day start fresh.
So why if it is a secret I am announcing it here? Because I don't feel judged here. This is my Spark Family.
