Hey y’all. I weighed in today.
In the last weight update I had just started Keto and was down 3 pounds from what I thought was my starting weight. I thought I was starting out a 250 but I now believe my home scale was off by 5 pounds and I’m using 255 as my starting weight. That was in July of 2018.
We are now in January of 2019 and I weigh in at 212.2. What! That’s down 42.8 pounds. Amazing.
I set up mini rewards for myself along the way and have reached one and am 2.2 pounds from reaching my second. My first had to do with a wall that I’ve hit every time I’ve tried to lose weight. The number 224. I would get to that number and quit. I don’t know why but EVERY time I dieted, be it Dr. Phil, Weight Watchers or whatever, I would get to 224 and stop. So I set my first mini reward at 223.9. Below 224. I made it and (This may be TMI) but I’m going to have myself fitted for a bra. I’ve never had one fitted for me so Hannah and I are going to get that done this month.
My second mini goal is 210. When I hit that I’m going to get me a couple of new pair of jeans. I hope it comes quickly because the jeans I have are starting to fall off.
One of the Biggies is when I hit Onederland. At 199.9 I will be spending quite a bit of money on a new pair of cowboy boots. I’ve been shopping for them for a while and I can’t believe I’m almost to the point of actually buying them. I was hoping to get there before Rodeo but I’m not sure it will happen. Plus we’ll be doing a lot of walking and I don’t think that will be smart with new boots.
There are so many things I could say about the Keto diet. The most important thing is I believe it saved my life. Plain and simple.
If you have any questions for me, put them in the comments and I’ll try to answer them. Just remember I’m not a doctor or nutritionist, I’m just a girl trying to lose weight and get healthy.
