I am beyond happy - I’ve made my personal goal of losing 100 pounds in a calendar year since starting keto end of June last year
If I was gonna miss it, I was ok with that - but yet as the fates decided, it HAPPENED!
Just wanted to share, as people around me don’t notice, oddly enough. And if I can do this, then ANYONE can. I am 43, married, and in doctoral studies while working full time and juggling a part-time internship. I had been pushing 290. I had to get a physical for school and didn’t like my A1C. My mom’s death was also a wake-up call 6 months previously, due to unmanaged diabetes. I recommitted to low-carb but found more about keto and June 28 I started full on with that. I never imagined I would get this far and know I still have about 40 more to lose. But I am happy with even slow progress because I have gained so many health improvements. I no longer wake up in pain, trying to get out of bed. My knees don’t creak. My back no longer spasms. My mental clarity is skyrocketing once I started fasting too. That didn’t get implemented until September. However, all in all, I will strive to not complain about how slow my losses are now. I lost 1/3 of my body weight. It is going to take time to recalibrate and I don’t have sagging skin. Bonus!
Hang in there - as corny as I always thought it sound, do something today your future self will thank you for. This was absolutely the case for me.
CELEBRATE and LIVE your life the best each day. No one is gonna get there in a hot minute, so might as well enjoy it for all the moments it is gonna take
