Wow. Just wow! 🙂 I woke up this morning weighing 149.6 pounds. This has been my goal for quite awhile now, and it feels SO amazing to be back in the 140’s – for the first time in almost 5 years!! 🙂
That only took me FOREVER – lol. 😛
I almost caved last night too… Seriously. I’ll share yesterday’s Low Carb Food Diary with you. You’ll see. (lol) 😉
I’m so glad I didn’t! Because THIS was amazing to wake up to this morning!!
Now comes the fun part of maintaining my weight loss, and continuing to lose – and TONING. Because omg, my arms look 10 years older than I do. 😛 I am NOT kidding. They wave at people… even when I don’t! 😐
Here is what I ate yesterday, along with my struggle (my “almost cheat!”), and you can also view my last Low Carb Diary: 3 Days of EASY Meals.
Sunday’s Low Carb Meals & Macros
My favorite low carb breakfast! 🙂 This time it’s 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese + 3/4 cup crushed pecans + 2 diced strawberries + 10 grams (.35oz) of blueberries.
6 net carbs and 88% healthy fats
I stir it all together like “low carb cereal”. This whole thing started because I really missed Special K Fruit & Yogurt cereal. I would even go off plan sometimes just to have it! So I came up with these combos to stay on track. 🙂
Yesterday was a PJs & leftovers kinda day. It’s FREEZING here in Tennessee this week, so the danes and I stayed in and ate at home. You might remember I’d ordered a second take-out meal when I went out to dinner the night before…
The funny thing is, I dropped this food – and my camera too – trying to take this picture by myself. 😛 I ate it anyway, lol. Slim did snag one of the broccoli’s, but otherwise it was a good save! 🙂 haha…
My low carb leftovers: grilled chicken with mozzarella & mushrooms and roasted broccoli. Yum! It was just as good leftover as it was at the restaurant!
Which brings us to dinner…
I was struggling last night. I don’t know why. You know how it is – it just hits you sometimes. 😛 *sigh*
The text exchange with my friend that you see there… that went on for like 20 minutes, lol. She did NOT let up. 😛
If I had not reached out to her, I probably would have snapped and ate junk food. Ack! And then I would NOT have weighed under 150 this morning!
So I just *sigh* grabbed the dry roasted sunflower seeds and ate those. There was exactly 1/4 cup left in the jar, so that’s what I ate.
Then I went straight to bed and pulled the covers over my head. Yes, slightly hungry still, but refusing to give in!
Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for the entire day:
Net Carbs: 23
Total Carbs: 38
Protein: 56 grams
Fat/Protein Ratio: 74% Fat / 18% Protein

Here’s how I track, what I track, and why: Macronutrients & Tracking. Like everything else, I keep it super simple.
I could not be happier today. Finally back in the 140’s!!! Wow. 🙂 That feels GOOD. It was a serious struggle, and I really wanted to achieve this before New Year’s – and again before my Vegas Trip – but hey, 3 weeks late ain’t bad. 😉
Of course now I’m dangerously close to being “skinny fat” (lol), so I’ll continue eating super healthy… and also TONE THIS BODY! I’m going to do it cheap, and at home, no gym or personal trainer, so stay tuned because I’ll share all the fun ways I get my workouts in… and you can follow along & join me!
I’m off to take a picture of my body (ick!), because I aim to have some amazing before & after “toning” pictures to share with you – soon. 🙂
