My scales have been fluctuating between 149.4 and 149.8 for the last couple of days, but it hit me this morning:
I’m below 150 pounds!
As in, it’s going to stick. 🙂
That feels so surreal. It’s hard to wrap my mind around, actually. Unlike every time before, I have no desire to “tank it” (self sabotage). The only real desire I have lately is to work out… hard!
I think I’ve finally crossed the line. Or gotten serious, or something. We’re almost 3 full weeks into the challenge, and sticking it out day after day has really worked it’s magic on me!
I have to admit that Summer being right around the corner has me highly motivated. Not just to maintain a healthy weight, but also to tone up… so I can enjoy swimsuits and tank tops – with confidence.
I like that idea. A lot! 🙂
I didn’t eat much yesterday, but I ate what I wanted and when I wanted – and ended up with a higher carb day than usual.
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 19 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 19: Friday’s Low Carb Meals
My day started off with my favorite low carb breakfast: 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, and 4 small diced strawberries. (5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats)
I was tired in the middle of the day, still dealing with the whole “lack of appetite thing” too, so I just snacked a little. I had a sugar free chocolate pudding cup, and also a spoonful of peanut butter (2 TBSP). Then I rested in the afternoon for a few hours. 🙂
I finally got hungry late last night… and had a small chili from Wendy’s:
The small chili from Wendy’s is 15 net carbs, which is really high for me… but it totally hit the spot!
I don’t feel like I ate enough yesterday, but I was tired – and busy – and just went with the flow. I also slept a lot and gave my muscles a break, so I didn’t get a workout in yesterday either.
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Friday:
Net Carbs: 35
Total Carbs: 51
Protein: 39 Grams
70% Fat, 16% Protein
FitBit Steps: 2,881
Water: 24 ounces
Starting Weight: 154.6
Current Weight: 149.4 pounds
Weight Loss (so far): 5.2 pounds
I have NO idea what I’m going to eat today. I have the same things in the house, and the same options around town, and none of them really appeal. I’ve just been eating whatever is easy and convenient lately, and eating the same things over and over takes the “thinking” out of it – which is nice. But I admit I’m getting a bit bored.
In other news… my roses are about to bloom. 🙂 Finally!
I’ve only lost 5.2 pounds in almost three full weeks. That is seriously SLOW, even for me – lol. It’s because I’m SO close to my ideal weight though, so I’m going to focus on eating a healthy low carb diet… and on toning and working out.
I’m dangerously close to just being “skinny fat” lol. Yuck. 🙄 haha. This is the summer I’m going to be in amazing shape. I can just feel it! I’m seriously motivated and inspired – and anxious to see exactly what “lean and strong” FEELS like. 🙂
