So I started Keto the first time in August of 2018 and by April or May of 2019 had lost about 35lbs. Then the dreaded stall. I slowly slipped with self-talk like “I’m not losing anyway. These chips won’t hurt anything.” Then it was a holiday or some such excuse until I got back on board in November. I admittedly was not as dedicated and strict as the first time around but still saw little, if any, change. A few chips turned into ice cream for supper. The stress of the COVID crisis sent me in a spiral, as my husband is an RN and got sent to ICU/ COVID unit where he is still working now.
After my failed re-start, I just feel like I need some success stories from people who may have done something similar. I know it sounds silly, but always lurking in the back of my head that keto “stopped working” for me, so maybe I’m done. If I’m completely honest, I know I wasn’t all in the last time. I really want to be one of those people who can go off plan once a week or eat 50+ carbs in a day and still lose, but I know I’m not.
