I work asphalt here in central Florida, we spend very long days in the extreme heat and I was (am) the only Keto person on the crew. We send out for lunch, dinner, whatever. I was bringing my own meals, drinks and such, but it got to be a real pain to not just give in and give up. 2 months ago I went to my Dr. and it had been so long she said “We thought you died or moved lol” My a1c was 6.1 and I had gained too much weight not to be embarrassed about ( I was up to 390 ) I was kicking myself and felt that I had let myself down. I had to do something fast. I broke out my old books and went to YouTube, I listened to (binged) podcasts. I came upon Dr. Berrys channel right as his live was starting and I said to myself “Sean you are not going down like this!” I watched all and I mean all the vids on his page. I started a BBB&E the next monday. It was hard at first, not the idea of BBB&E but having to do my lunches again. Well I have fallen into the pattern of 1 meal a day after work (if I’m hungry) and no more Pepsi. I am drinking black coffee again and wondering why i started putting stuff in it in the first place because I actually like black coffee. Lots of water, no Gatorade. I went to the Dr. this morning and i am awaiting my blood work message to come in. But I have lost 39 lbs and the best part of all… most of my joint pain is gone! Blood presser is coming down 149/ 92. My a1c was taken but it has not been 3 full months since last check but it read 5.4 in the office.
I don’t want to be a loser. (other than this weight, pain,hpb…I can lose all that) I will let the world know my progress.
thanks for listening
