I started our mini-challenge on Monday at 155.4 pounds. This morning I woke up weighing 152.8 pounds. That’s a sweet 2.6 pound loss in five short days!
I tend to lose weight very slowly for a couple of reasons. First because I’m closer to my goal weight. And also because I’m post-hysterectomy. Which means I struggle just to maintain my weight, and can put weight on faster than you can say “EAT!” -lol.
Below is what I ate yesterday, along with a copy of my Food Diary in MyFitnessPal so you can see my total macronutrient breakdown. You can see my other meals this week in my Low Carb Food Journal.
I’m cooking sausage & fried eggs while I write this. 🙂
Friday’s Low Carb Meals & Macros
I had a busy morning, so I just grabbed a quick low carb snack on my way out the door yesterday: 1/4 cup pecan halves & .60 ounces of colby jack cheese. Better than a bar or shake, REAL FOOD, and healthy fats to fuel my day!
270 calories, 1 net carb
88% fat & 10% protein
My lunch was a whopping 8 net carbs! 1/2 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 1/2 cup chopped pecans & 3 strawberries. All real foods, and a very healthy combination:
8 net carbs, 14 total
80% fat, 14% protein
19 grams of protein
My low carb dinner: take-out leftovers! Grilled chicken & roasted veggies:
Later that night I had a slice of cheese: 0.6 oz off my Colby Jack Cheese Block. It was just a quick snack, but I find about half or one ounce of REAL cheese to be very filling. 🙂
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary For Friday:
I’m trilled to be almost 3 pounds lighter today!
I already mentioned the sausage and eggs for breakfast today, and I think lunch will be Grilled Tilapia. I picked up a few more groceries yesterday…
