Seriously, every post. Every single one, right?
This time though I’m here with a happy update. Back in February I talked about starting keto. And then again in March, and April, and May, and June and you already get where this is going because you know the months of the year.
In August my husband listened to a bunch of podcasts, read a bunch of stories and studies and decided that he was on board.
A few days later, me and my hustle got taken down by the flu, which then turned into pneumonia. It was miserable and I slept for basically a week straight. I lost like 10 pounds. My body was mad at me, and was like, “Rest already!”
We, (or should I say he) finally started when I got back on my feet on August 31st. Me? I’m a sugar addict and surrounded by chocolate and ice cream all day at work. I cheated. That’s how I roll.
Or rolled I should say. After a week, I felt bad and dove in for real.
You know those $1.99 weekly magazines where some woman is interviewed for losing 200 pounds, and she says some variation of “I don’t know what was different this time. Something just clicked and I finally stuck with it. If I can do it anyone can!”
I get it now. I always thought it was some BS fluff, but now I totally understand.
It’s been easy. I’m no longer a sugar addict. My glucose numbers are normal. I’m turning down chocolate lava cake, ice cream, peppermint patties easily. Like, I don’t even care or feel like I’m missing out.
We even attended an event with a cheesecake bar, and I was totally cool just drinking my coffee with butter.
Who the heck am I even?
Right now I’m down to 195 pounds. 10 more and I’ll weigh what I did in middle school. Middle school. That’s bananas.
And totally awesome. I can’t believe how easy this way of eating is. I never feel deprived or hungry, and weight is literally falling off.
Have you tried Keto? What was your experience like? I’d love to hear more!
I promise some day I’ll figure out how to line these photos up right. Maybe, hopefully.
Maybe I’ll even get a photographer who isn’t 4 or 5 years old. 😂😂😂
