I did it!! WE did it! 🙂 Another 90 day challenge has come to an end, and I am SO proud of myself – and pleased with the results! I hope you’re feeling the same. 🙂
If you haven’t yet, go comment on the Final Weigh-In Thread inside the group.
It’s important to get a “total pounds lost together” tally for this challenge!
Averaging a pound a week is GREAT at my weight (so close to goal). I started this challenge at 154.6 pounds.
I’ve also been working out more than ever, and really toning up!
I’ve been eating low carb for over 5 years now and didn’t make that many food or lifestyle changes, and STILL lost about a pound a week (almost 12 pounds)! When I first started I lost 8 pounds in the first 10 days, and lost 24 pounds within the first couple of months.
People who have more to lose will lose faster than me of course, and people who are just starting the low carb diet will lose more weight as well – because they are usually making bigger changes to their diet (quitting sugar, giving up bread, etc).
The Spring 2016 Challenge Is Over… What’s Next?!

Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 90 (the final day!!) of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge…
Day 90: Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
My healthy low carb breakfast was a delicious mix of of 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 2 strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) blueberries.
^ That came to 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
For lunch I made a simple one-skillet-meal of sausage & fried eggs:
For dinner I just made a dish full of veggies, with some ground sausage. First I fried & drained the ground sausage. Then I mixed in spinach and 2 ounces of cream cheese with the sausage. I put that in a baking dish, topped it with yellow squash, and just broiled it a bit:
That dinner experiment turned out really tasty! 🙂
It was 4 net carbs for a serving (284 calories) and a tasty way to eat my veggies. I figured out the nutrition facts using the Free MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator.
I was up really late last night, so I had a second serving of that around midnight. 🙂 It was so simple, but seriously delicious!!

A Little Weight Loss Inspiration For You…
Here’s a photo I shared on Facebook and Instagram yesterday. The difference is only 20-25 pounds (I’ve lost close to 50 pounds total, see: My Weight Loss Journey). It’s shocking how much of a difference even 20’ish pounds can make!
My Experience During This Challenge…
A lot of cool things happened for me during our Spring Challenge. I met Joe a few weeks into it 🙂 and we’ve both lost more than 10 pounds together!
I FINALLY started exercising and toning 4-6 times a week consistently, and my body is REALLY toning up. I battled and FINALLY overcame my emotional eating issues. I stayed consistent (save only 2 off-plan detours, lol) for NINETY FULL DAYS.
I learned to ignore the scales and power through the stalls and fluctuations – and because of that saw my weight consistently go down.
I’m calling this challenge a HUGE success!!
How did you do during the challenge?
Did you participate in the full challenge or at least part of it – and how did you do?? I would love to hear what’s next for YOU now that the current challenge has ended.
Are you going to continue on with me, and join in for the next challenges?!
I always look forward to hearing from you. 🙂
