It FINALLY happened!
My scales moved. 🙂
Just in time for the Monday Weigh-In in the low carb challenge!
I woke up this morning and stepped on the scales to see an even 150 pounds.
That brings me to 4.6 pounds lost in the last two weeks. SLOW, but at least I didn’t gain 10 pounds in 2 weeks, because I swear I gain twice as fast as I can lose. 😛 lol.
I’ve been hungry a lot lately, but don’t really feel like eating – which seems odd. Maybe because I’ve been busy, maybe just a general lack of appetite, who knows. I’m also completely out of groceries and totally UNmotivated to cook – at all. 🙄
I’ve been scouring old food diaries for meal ideas this week, but nothing sounds good lately. Hopefully more exercise will increase my appetite this week. And maybe even my desire to cook?! Heh, probably not…
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 14 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s not too late to join us if you haven’t already. 🙂
Day 14: Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I just had coffee for breakfast yesterday. Zero appetite.
I was out for a long drive on an empty stomach, and finally stopped at a little store for a snack. I passed on the muffins, danishes & chips (seriously tempted!) and just grabbed this bag of Planters Cashews:
These cashews are 8 net carbs for ONE serving, with 3 servings in a bag. Geez! I only had one serving and put the rest away.
For dinner I was planning to call in a big Delmonico Ribeye with sauteed mushrooms & roasted vegetables. I just couldn’t get an appetite for that much food, or that heavy of a meal… so I called in a Caesar Salad with Grilled Salmon from Applebee’s instead:
That’s such a delicious salad. 🙂 I made two meals out of it. I ate 2/3 of it, then finished it later with pecan halves added to it.
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Sunday:
Exercise: Walking / Dancing
FitBit Steps: 9,146
Water: 16 ounces
Starting Weight: 154.6
Current Weight: 150 pounds
Weight Loss (so far): 4.6 pounds
So here it is… the big one fifty. My current weight. Patience paid off. 😛
Patience is hard, I know. The last two weeks have seriously tested mine!
I got this message from MyFitnessPal when I completed my food log last night:
Er 😯 haha.
I don’t even know what I would look like at that weight… a drug addict?! 😛 MyFitnessPal says some of the craziest things sometimes, lol. That was just based on the exercise / calories burned – and my lower calorie food diary.
I got a good workout in for my core & legs yesterday, so today I’ll work on arms. I MUST start exercising harder & more consistently. That’s my goal this week!
I have to admit, and I’ve confessed this before, this whole “150 mark” is a real mind game for me. This is where self-sabotage always tries to set in. It helps that I don’t have much of an appetite lately, but I know all that will change if I eat “one little treat”. That’s all it will take, and I’ll eat my way through an entire week of junk. 😛
I’ve been doing great at saying NO and resisting temptations, so I’m just going to force myself to continue doing that – and focus on exercise.
How are things going on your end?
