10 Pounds Down

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. scale-403585_1920

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”.

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.


I'm just an ordinary girl, and ordinary wife, trying hard to live an extraordinary life.
