In my last update I mentioned my goal was to get below 150 pounds before my next trip. I leave for San Diego on Monday… and I did it! 🙂
I am now 149.6 pounds. 🙂 Yay!
I’ll share the easy low carb meals I’ve been eating below, in my usual “food photo tour” style.
You can see earlier in the week in My Low Carb Food Diaries. If you subscribe by email, you’ll get those free in your inbox as soon as they’re published, which is great for easy low carb meal ideas. 😉
I hit my target on Saturday morning: 149.6 pounds.
You can see how my week went in this screenshot from my FitBit app:
The weight has come off nicely since recovering from the stomach virus – which sadly made me GAIN weight. Who gains weight with a stomach virus?! ME. 😯 lol…
(Monday was my first day back at low carb eating after living on crackers and chicken soup for a week.)
It’s been a tough week here, but I’ll save that story for another day. Right now I’m busy packing up for my trip to San Diego, and really looking forward to the sunshine!
And of course all the great low carb foods to explore along the way. 🙂
Here’s what I’ve been eating this week, since my last update…
Thursday’s Low Carb Meals
For breakfast I had my favorite “low carb cereal” made with Daisy Brand cottage cheese, pecans & berries. This time it was 1/3 cup cottage cheese, 3/4 cup pecans, 2 medium strawberries and a few blackberries. It was 9 net carbs.
For lunch I had four of my low carb biscuits with Laughing Cow creamy swiss wedges. Delicious! 🙂 The recipe for these low carb biscuits is here.
This is a variation of my original low carb biscuit recipe. For dinner I heated up two more low carb biscuits, split them in half, and topped them with two fried eggs.

Friday’s Low Carb Meals
Friday was a tough day. I had an Atkins bar for breakfast, another one as a snack later in the day, my low carb cereal late that night – and this low carb take-out for lunch and dinner:
It’s grilled chicken smothered in mozzarella & mushrooms, with roasted broccoli & cauliflower. I had about half of it for lunch, and the other half for dinner.

On Saturday I grabbed a Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club from Hardee’s:
This morning I made Low Carb Cinnamon Pecan Crepes. It was 3oz cream cheese, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup crushed pecans, healthy dash of cinnamon, and I used 2 TBSP of sugar free vanilla syrup to sweeten/flavor it. Combine with hand mixer and melt real butter over medium heat, then fry until browned. It made 2 meals for me (breakfast AND lunch). It was 8 net carbs and 87% healthy fat for the whole batch.
For dinner I got a Chicken Caesar Salad (no croutons) from Applebee’s carside-to-go (take-out). It was a lot bigger than usual for some reason! lol
I had a nice long walk on Saturday afternoon, and I’ve been drinking plenty of water. Usually close to 48 ounces a day. A lot of people believe you should drink more water than that, but many of your foods are high in water content too.
