Like SO MANY people I completely fell off the horse when it all hit. Pretty much immediately. I wanted comfort food, but also was trying to go to the store once a week max, which (for me) meant buying lots of stuff that could last a while like pastas and breads. With pasta and bread came soda and sweets. In all I regained about 2/3 of the weight I’d taken off doing keto – so, not as bad as it could’ve been, and I’m focusing on moving forward and celebrating that 1/3 that I held on to.
Still, as you all know it is just so hard to get back into the groove. My biggest weakness is still sugar – I’ve been spending a lot of time with family, and my sister has kids and so she and my parents all keep sugary treats around their houses for the kids, and I have SUCH a hard time being around it all. But at the same time, I want to see them, and I can’t ask them to keep their houses sugar-free just because of my thing. So I’m trying to remember all my keto tricks, like filling up on a really fatty meal before I go over to visit family, drinking tons of water.
Anyway, this is all just me thinking out loud and it’s prob not very interesting but I was trying to remember the things that helped me launch this successfully a couple of years ago and suddenly remembered this wonderful forum, and thought posting this would help me get back into the spirit, and build up some accountability for myself. Thanks for reading, and happy spring!
