Needing to get back into strict keto. I have been away for a year now, i have my wedding April 24,2021 and need to still get my dress altered. I am giving myself a timeline to loose at least 20-30lbs by begging of march. I know i can do it since ive done it before but i needed to vent on here. Today starts my discipline. I weighed myself this morning and im at ■■■■■■■ 200lbs. Heaviest ive been, so disappointed in myself but i know i can get back to where i was.
Good luck; it is so worth it. You will feel great.
When I got married and before keto, I lost 40 lbs. in four months by WW and got down to my goal weight, white knuckling it and shear willpower. I was a lot younger then and was able to drop it relatively quickly. I bought my dress off the rack about six weeks before the wedding because I needed that time and was still losing. They weren’t happy with me at the bridal shop, but oh well. I gained the weight back in less than a year, however, I looked and felt so nice on my wedding day. I wish I had known about keto back then. I stood way more of a chance of keeping it off. Kept my weight off now for almost two years.
Good luck Anita. We will all look forward to seeing a photo of you on that special day xxx
I was tempted to chide you for wanting to get in shape for a wedding instead of your health. Then I chided myself. We all come to keto for various reasons, but the decision is usually based in our self esteem and a desire to physically represent our best selves. No one but you knows what will finally flip that switch. Sometimes it is a momentous occasion (wedding, reunion, heart attack). Other times we wake up and are simply ready to do and be better. Good luck in your weight loss, have a beautiful wedding, and a marvelous marriage.
Welcome back to Keto and best wishes for getting in shape for your wedding.
I wish you many years of wedded bliss. I think posting some wedding pics would be great too, I am sure that we would all love to see them.
Well, you have keto, your past experience, your huge motivation… And it’s very individual but when I still was around 180lbs (I never could get higher), it was so, so easy to lose fat on low-carb…
So I don’t worry about you, you can do it!
Good luck and happy wedding and wed life!
30pounds is a big target for your current weight Anita!
It’s good to set goals and wonderful when you achieve them so go for it
Will you be doing only keto? Or do you have a fitness plan also?
