Nice job! You are an inspiration to us all!!
You literally changed the course of your life! Wonderful to see and I bet, pretty fantastic for you!
Thanks everyone. It’s a lot easier doing things with my adult autistic son now for sure. KETO has really changed my life in too many ways to count but I am still improving. I may consider myself in maintenance but I actually think that’s a misleading term. My body weight seems stable and I am happy about where I am, but I am still going through body composition changes. And I think as we age the work isn’t over. I’m still tweaking my diet and using fasting to do that. I may very well end up a different weight. Hopefully I will build a bit more muscle in my limbs and core. I have an operation coming up to remove an adenoma from my on of my Parathyroid glands. It’s been causing calcium leaching from my bones for a long time. Hopefully I will start to reverse that after and build bone density back up. So I’m pretty sure I will gain weight but it will be very healthy weight. Lots more healing to go.
Great job David. Impressive.
I agree. But not only because of your specific circumstances, which are very relevant. But in general… I am in better health in my mid-fourties than I was in my mid-thirties. And wiser than in my mid-twenties. And more confident than in my mid-teens. And more secure than in my mid-aughts.
Because life isn’t about maintaining.
After a year at goal weight(ish) [I’d be happy with 5 more pounds down] I have learned that “maintentance” is just more growth. Just hopefully not in size.
You are an inspiration and a real Keto superman, David. You are always such an encouragement and help to all of us here, and have overcome so much, and are a real strong Keto warrior. You really impress me with all the obstacles in life that you have risen above and not only survived, but have thrived =). You look fantastic and have done so well, and should be very proud of yourself =).
I love this, Ruina, this is awesome =).
Very impressive, David! I bet you feel much better, too, and that’s most important.
How did I miss this till now? Awesome improvements David.
Okay, I want to see More!!! Lets make 2020 a year to remember! I hope many people post their pics!
Personally, the holidays were rough, I put on ~20 lbs from Thanksgiving to New Years. And I was already up 7 from my goal, so 27 lbs (217) when I want to maintain 190-195…
(I had some struggles related to inflammation, pork fat, and more wrenches thrown in my plans than a mechanic could muster).
But Going full on Carnivore for Jan as a reset. This will be an annual goal of mine. (Along with doing better in maintenance, LOL).
Finally, another reason I want to see more success/pics. My OVERALL feedback has been phenomenal! One idiot on Twitter got under my skin for about 10 seconds… He replied to my before and after Photo with this:
Congratulations, You ate less
Wow… First, I don’t think its true. I feel, overall, I ate more! Especially calories. At least the same. And I finally lowered my intake over time AFTER I lost a bunch of weight. But it got under my skin a bit. Clearly someone who never struggled for DECADES with their weight!
So, lets just chalk up a bunch of success stories to show jerks like this how Awesome Keto is!
I don’t think that’s true, either. I typically eat two meals a day, and often even I am shocked at how much (primarily) meat I’m eating. Yet I continue to lose fat and gain muscle.
Amazing! Well done
