This morning I stepped on the scales to see 148.8 staring back at me. I don’t even know how to process that number in my head.
While enjoying my first coffee, I scrolled back through my two full years of MyFitnessPal entries, and discovered it is my lowest recorded weight – ever.
I can’t even remember the last time I was at this low a weight. More than a decade ago, I know – around 30 years old. Wow.
I still have a lot of work to do. First of course is to maintain my weight and continue losing body fat… and then to tone and gain muscle weight.
This is NOT the time to get comfortable. I am highly motivated to see this through, tone my body, and see just how much I can accomplish! 🙂
As I was looking back over my weight entries for the last two years, and also at the reflection of my much thinner body in the mirror this morning, I realized just how lax I’ve been about my goals. I made efforts in short spurts, gained the weight back, lost it again. I worked out consistently for short periods, then got out of the habit again. Over and over, and again. It was truly eye opening.
I will not stop this time.
I AM going to achieve my goal.
And wait until you see – I can’t wait to see! – because I am going through a HUGE physical transformation. I have photos of myself from those starting entries two years ago, I’ll take photos of myself now (at “skinny fat”), and I will capture the goal in photos too – once I’m toned up and transformed into the “happiest, healthiest version of myself” which has been my goal for SO long…
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 20 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 20: Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my usual 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 had to run out to the store to stock up on pecans and coffee 🙂 so I stopped by Hardee’s for a Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club. Unfortunately, they screwed up my order…
I did NOT feel like going back through the drive-thru 😛 so I just rearranged the lettuce and made it work!
For dinner I scrambled up 3 eggs with 2 pieces of leftover sausage – and added 2 slices of Borden Natural colby jack cheese. That “sausage, egg & cheese scramble” made for an easy low carb meal! (1.2 carbs and 79% fats)
That was A LOT of food, and with my lack of appetite lately… I was surprised that I ate it all, but I did!
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Saturday:
Net Carbs: 19
Total Carbs: 27
Protein: 94 Grams
76% Fat, 20% Protein
FitBit Steps: 3,538
Water: 24 ounces
Starting Weight: 154.6
Current Weight: 148.8 pounds
Weight Loss (so far): 5.8 pounds
Almost 6 pounds lost! That may not seem like much, but the less weight you have to lose the MORE challenging it is! I’m very happy to see my scales moving again. 🙂
People ask me all the time what my goal weight is. I have no idea. I am not just “losing weight” at this point, but losing more fat and also gaining muscle weight. It will be interesting to see how that plays out as a number on the scale…
