Day 15: Weight Lost + Low Carb Food Journal


 

The 15 day 2-week 3IMAX Challenge officially ended yesterday. This marks my 15th post in a row where I’ve shared every single meal and ALL 15 of my daily food diaries with you – complete with macros. That was fun! πŸ™‚

The final results are in:

I lost 5 full pounds in 15 days!

Current weight: 152.2

That may not seem like a huge loss to you, but I’m pretty close to my goal weight – so the weight comes off slower for me than someone who has more to lose. I also eat low carb consistently, so it wasn’t a major lifestyle change for me.

I typically lose 1/2 to one pound per week, so 5 pounds in a whole month is a BIG success for me. Losing 5 pounds in two weeks was GREAT!! πŸ™‚

I even cooked TWICE during this challenge, lol. That’s also a lot for me. πŸ˜› It was inspiring actually. I hopped on to my kitchen wishlist yesterday and did some shopping. I ordered some cool new kitchen gadgets. I’m aiming to get a little more familiar with my kitchen! You know, that room in the house where my coffee maker lives. πŸ™‚ I got some cool stuff, so I’ll show it off to you when it arrives. And hopefully I’ll still have enough fingers to operate a camera so I can do that. lol.

So here you go, my final 15th day Food Diary for the 3IMAX challenge (which stands for: 3 Ingredients Max – and is a great kick-start or stall breaker!).

Day 15 Low Carb Food Diary

I had FIVE meals yesterday.

I got up hungry at 4am and had some leftover broccoli, warmed up with colby jack cheese with was ooey gooey deliciously melted over my broccoli. πŸ™‚ Then I went back to bed, lol. I got back up and had my usual coffee(s), then had “brunch” (whatever you want to call it – I ate sometime around mid morning, ha!).

I ate the rest of the broccoli, added cheese again, and this time added 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese too:

I heated that all up together and it made what I called… “broccoli lasagna” lol. πŸ™‚

Later that afternoon I got hungry again and finished off some steamed squash I found in the refrigerator. Leftover from a take-out meal earlier in the week.

For dinner I had a BEAUTIFUL Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club from Hardee’s (which is called Carl’s Jr. in some areas). These are SOOOOO good!

For “2nd Dinner” or “5th Meal” (whatever, lol, I just eat when I’m hungry!) I had the rest of my Naked Wings from Pizza Hut, with half a ranch cup to dip them in.

Here’s my entire MyFitnessPal Low Carb Food Diary for the day:

My macros tallied up as:
1334 calories, 21 net carbs, 65% fat / 29% protein

I got plenty of veggies in yesterday too: broccoli (twice!), squash, lettuce & tomato. And coffee. That’s a vegetable, right? πŸ™‚ lol…

What about you – did you participate in the mini challenge? I’d love to hear your results, or just how low carb is working out for YOU.

Stay tuned too, we’re kicking off another Low Carb Challenge shortly, so make sure you’re subscribed & getting the updates!

This is me, signing off… 5 pounds lighter, and 5 pounds happier! πŸ™‚ *cheers*

    That’s awesome Lynn! I can’t believe you lost that much in 15 days! I watched all the meals you were eating but didn’t realize you were doing a 15 day challenge. So excited to see all the great food we get to have on this “Way of Life”! Thank you!

      Thank you, Lorraine! It surprised me too, actually. πŸ™‚ That’s a nice loss for me in that short a time! The next time I do “3IMAX” I’m going to get even more strict – include my coffee (my creamer has way too many ingredients), count Daisy Brand cottage cheese as the 3 ingredients it is (instead of one), etc.

      I’m a big fan of “food science” and I like some of the things I’ve read about “mono meals” (one ingredient foods per peal) too. Experimenting is fun! As long as it’s healthy experimenting, of course. πŸ™‚
