Yesterday I finally crossed a milestone that has eluded me for a year. After losing 50 pounds, I stalled at breaking the 200 pound threshold and sat there for a year. Y’all can probably identify with how important that milestone feels.
I had many benefits under my belt (ha) including reversing the T2D that I had creeped into. I was able to cut my medication doses in half. But damn, that 200 mocked me like a comedy club heckler everytime I got on the scale.
Here’s what I did.
- Really upped the fat intake and cut back on protein.
- Took up fasting for 16 to 20 hours of the day.
- Scoured the hidden carbs out of my life. Did you know that Gaviscon tablets have sugar?
Yesterday I was 197.
