I started the Keto diet on May 29th, weighing in at 230 pounds with a short term goal of 220 in mind. I hit that goal on Friday, June 23rd, less than one month into my diet and with plenty of cheat days in between.
This amazes me considering that, in the fall, when I was dieting, I made less progress in a longer period of time and I felt like I was killing myself for every ounce of fat lost. Since June of last year, I have lost 20 pounds… 20!! Let that sink in! That’s the size of a toddler!
I’m 220 pounds now. It’s weird seeing that number and being happy about it. I shouldn’t be happy about a number that is still so big. But it’s better than before. 220 is my “after” right now, and I can’t wait for that number to be my “before”.
So, yeah, I’m liking this whole Keto thing. I’m eating high fat, moderate protein, and very low carb (like, under 20g of net carbs per day) and it seems to be working! I eat a lot of eggs, cheese, meat and green leafy veggies and I don’t feel like I’m starving myself. I actually feel full and some days struggle to meet my caloric intake requirements for the day.
So encouraged by my progress so far and looking forward to taking my 1 month photos.
