So… I lost about 10kg, 12kg on keto a few years back, I’m very petite (1,58m) so it’s the sort of weight that shows!.. after losing the weight (about 3 and half months) I stayed on track for a few months but then birthday cake and a big birthday dinner and well you know the deal… I managed to keep the weight off though for a year and a half, went back on keto for a while for no reason other than getting back on better mood. Then my mom went to the hospital, I got down in the dumps and well, mcdonalds every day… then I moved to a rural area, started vegetarianism and lost a bit of weight, was feeling good, then covid and with lockdown it was emotional cake eating everyday, I kid you not, I was baking 1 cake a day.
Then I changed meds (I take a very low dose antipsychotic for depression) and the weight piled up in two months. I’m not back to the 70kg I was before, but I’m pretty close and I started getting sugar crashes, falling asleep and so forth. Due to covid I’m not able to ask for a check up now, no doctors available here, but I’m wanting to get back on it because I feel on a low mood every day, low energy and I don’t feel good with my body at all. And I miss cooking keto, everyone says it was the best time to come eat at my house with all the goodies.
So… here I am! I used to be on these forums but I didn’t participate much or nothing at all (maybe 3 posts in a year), but I remember this being a good supportive forum.
So… here I am. I don’t have a scale at home, so tomorrow I’ll go to the pharmacy to get my weight checked, I already took the before picture, will eat as little carbs as I can today and tomorrow I restart keto It’s good for my mental health, physical health and keeps my emotional eating in check, so yeah, I’m back on it.
Thanks for reading.
