SUCCESS!

I started Keto 5/6 weeks ago with the hopes I’d be able to lose weight before our trip (cause I didn’t fit into my clothes). Well, I’m here to report, I did it!

I fit into nearly everything again!

Thanks KETO! I’ll start you again just as soon as I get back.

3 weeks down

2 weeks and 3 days to go until I give myself a bit of slack in Europe! Can’t wait to visit the Netherlands, Germany and Iceland. Yay! I’m going to try and follow Keto as best I can while I’m there but if I want to eat some really awesome bread or pasta I’m going for it cause how often will I get to experience all the neat cuisine those countries have to offer.

I re-started on www.myfitnesspal.com too last week. Wanted to make sure I was eating more fat than protein. So far, so good!

Keto Is OK!

I’m 3 weeks into Keto now and I’ve lost around 5 pounds but probably closer to 7-8 since I didn’t get on the scale until the end of week 1. That’s a fantastic amount in 3 weeks considering I’m not working out at all, except for the occasional walk. I’ll be keeping it up for at least another 2 and 1/2 weeks until our trip and then relaxing a bit in Europe. But when I return I’ll definitely keep going with it.

I wouldn’t say it’s always easy but we’re finding a lot of recipes that are Keto friendly so that when we do have cravings for pizza and pancakes we still get to eat a version of them. On Dave’s birthday we went to a Keto-friendly restaurant called Sizzle Mongolian Grill. It was perfect for us, all the meat and veggies you want, we stayed away from the carby noodles and sauces and rice.

So, we’re doing pretty well. Dave has lost 10 pounds already and we can both fit back into jeans. Keto isn’t for everyone, but if you have the willpower to find the Keto options you’ll do great!
