Things I never thought I could give up:
I’ve found that as time has gone on, it has become easier to just not think about them. Every once in a while, I have a weak moment. I did break once. I had a handful of M&M’s. Then I picked up, and KCKO’d.
It’s amazing. I can RUN. Me. The fat kid. I can run, and jog, and walk, and do a 5k. I can hike again. I can run around after my kids, nieces and nephew and not feel like I’m going to die. My anxiety is nearly gone, my depression is non-existant. My blood pressure is so low that doctors have been discussing taking me off of my meds - that I’ve been on since I was in my mid 20’s.
The first couple, three weeks sucked. I didn’t know about this place. I didn’t know how to not be throwing up, sick, have diarrhea, and have no energy. Those that are here that are just beginning, feel lucky. You have stumbled across a forum of amazing people that will do anything they can to help you.
Congrats to @jilliangordona, @collaroygal and @Peter, as well as everyone else that has made this important step toward a healthier life. Those that are just starting, the best piece of advice I’ve gotten in this forum is this: Keto isn’t a diet. It’s a lifestyle. If weight loss doesn’t happen immediately, KCKO because it’ll happen eventually, and in the meantime, you’ll come into a well of energy you didn’t know you had within you.
