Happy Monday! 🙂 It’s Day 57 of the Spring Low Carb Challenge, and we weigh in every Monday morning. If you’re participating in the low carb challenge Facebook group, you’ll find today’s Week 8 Weigh-In thread here.
My current weight is 145.6, for a total of 9 lbs lost in the last 8 weeks. That means I lost another 1.4 pounds in the last week.
Averaging over a pound a week is a good rate of weight loss for me, considering I’m close to my goal weight (and post-hysterectomy). I’m pleased!
I started out close to 200 pounds, but for the last few years I’ve been gaining and losing the same 20 pounds over and over. 🙄
See My Weight Loss Journey. It’s so nice to finally be OFF that weight loss/gain roller coaster – and at my lowest weight yet in over 13 years!
I had a weird food day yesterday…
It was super low carb, only one meal, but still around 1200 calories.
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 56 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s NEVER too late to join if you haven’t already!
Day 56: Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I didn’t feel like eating yesterday.
It was one of those days where I just wanted to take a day off from life. Have you ever had one of those days?! I didn’t feel like walking, I didn’t want to listen to my usual music, and I didn’t feel like worrying with meals. 😛
Nothing appealed to me. Even the thought of my favorite sugar-free hazelnut coffee creamer seemed overpowering taste-wise. Knowing I didn’t want that, and didn’t feel like eating… I decided to make my first Bulletproof Coffee in well over a year.
I had one large mug of coffee with a tablespoon of real butter and a tablespoon of Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. It was delicious. 🙂
I didn’t use any heavy cream or sweetener at all, and it was perfect.
I had a second mug of coffee just like the first but with TWO tablespoons of butter, which gave me enough calories and satisfaction to get through the first half of the day. My third mug was JUST two TBSP’s of real butter (no coconut oil, nothing else) which was delicious too!
I may have finally discovered a way to eliminate the crazy amount of sugar-free flavored creamer I use every day. 🙂 That will be a BIG help because it adds up to 6 or 8 net carbs a day (yes, I drink too much coffee lol) – and it’s about $5 a bottle.
I did have 3 mugs later in the day with my Coffee-Mate creamer too, and finally had a meal last night. I made 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese.
I still didn’t have an appetite, but felt like I needed something solid on my stomach – and eggs were bland and easy. See how my macros worked out for the day below…

Here’s a picture of Slim and I out on our walk this morning. 🙂
We had some fun adventures, veering off our usual downtown track and exploring some historic sites and such.
I feel better today. Still no real appetite this morning so I got my walk in – which worked up an appetite for lunch finally. 🙂 Yesterday was just a bad day with a lot on my mind. Fortunately those always pass…
146.6 is almost a quarter of a pound lower than my previous “lowest weight” (146.8). Even better than that, my cravings are all but gone and I’m more consistent with my low carb eating and my exercise & fitness than ever before. That feels GREAT!
How are things going on your end?
Did you weigh-in today? 🙂
I would love to hear from you!
