Hi Keto Forum family!
My name is Chris Esquilin. I’ve been listening to the 2 Keto Dudes for a little while now but this is my first post. After reaching my highest weight last year of 349lbs, I knew that I desperately needed a change. My family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. and I don’t want to go down that path.
My younger brother started keto last year and lost a great amount of weight. We had known about keto for a few years but were always very skeptical. After hitting our highest weight, my wife and I decided to dive right in and go keto. I’ve been very greateful for the podcast, the forums, and all the resources available to help keto newbies in the journey.
After a couple months on the journey, I started incorporating high intensity training as well as weight training in the gym. That along with intermittent fasting has really helped me drop significant weight. I checked the scale over the weekend and I’m now at 249lbs! I am so excited to be down 100lbs and I plan to keep going!
I have about another 30-40lbs to hit my goal weight and I’m as motivated and excited as ever. Thank you for all the support on this forum and I look forward to seeing your stories!
