Hello everybody, I’m not new to keto but I have fallen out of it ages ago (prior to the pandemic) and struggled to get back but here I am again, and so here’s my story so far.
Initially started keto to aid w my epilepsy as well as hoping to lose weight. It helped immensely for both. I found myself going down from 100kg to around 80kg and feeling so much better before I (you guessed it) fell off the keto horse. Along with the carbs, being weaned off medication and a ■■■■ ton of stress, I was reintroduced to seizures again, depression and tipping the scale at 115kg. I’ve been back on my epilepsy meds for a while now and I’m relatively seizure free but missing how I felt during my keto days.
I’m gonna be 19 in a month, I’m trying to deal with entering adulthood, getting my first job, progressing into a career that I’ll find fulfilling, learning to drive (1 year seizure free baby), and living my life without hiding behind the mounds of fat I piled on. First week is the hardest. For anybody else who’s in a similar position and is trying to get back on the keto horse, I wish you the best of luck. We did it before, we can do it again.
