That’s right, bitches! Dave and I have now been Keto for 6 whole months. We started on April 20th, and while we have definitely had cheat weekends (and weeks while in Europe) we have been quite steadfast in our keto lifestyle.
I can’t count the number of cakes we’ve turned down in 6 months, or the number of times we brought our own snacks somewhere, or the number of times we made bacon. But I can count the number of pounds we’ve lost (32 and 35 respectively), the number of sizes we went down, and the number of weeks we rocked Keto for.
I’m proud of what we’ve done together, and I’m looking forward to continuing having cheat weekends when it makes sense (one upcoming this weekend), and getting down to 160 by the end of the year. (c’mon me!) Keto is great. Keto isn’t hard. Keto works. K4L I guess is legit what we’re going for. I woke up on my 6th month ketoversary and was down .2 lower than I was when I quit working out and gained 40 pounds back last year! I’m so excited! Onward and downward! Can’t wait to see where we’re at on April 20th, 2016.
As of my weigh-in today I’m down 30 pounds. 30 dumb pounds! I’ve got a long way to go. But, today I’m 30 pounds less than where I started. Here’s a pic of me from the week before I started keto and a pic of me today. I can totally see a difference. But. Still a lot to go. Gotta stay focused!
NSVs: So many nice things have happened to me that keep me focused on continuing with keto. I am *this close* to fitting into a pair of boots with jeans tucked in I bought last year that never did up. I get to wear loose sweaters in the fall, which has never happened before. My rings are going to fall off my fingers, Dave and I have plans to get new wedding bands on our 5 year anniversary but maybe we’ll have to move that up. Buying clothes has become not nearly as shitty, I get to shop in any store basically.
SVs: The scale has been so kind. I only weigh in on Fridays because my weight fluctuates around 2 – 3 pounds each week but I weight myself every morning. I’m so very close to be able to say I lost 30 pounds! The last 2 days I’ve been at the 30 pounds lost mark so I’m going to really focus on eating fat this week, hopefully getting to a proper 30 pounds lost!
Vs: Meal planning has been awesome for me. We make our meal plan on Sunday or Monday and we grocery shop Monday afternoon, before dinner. Knowing what we’re having for the week is so helpful. Going to the grocery store once a week has really been helpful, I hate grocery shopping. We have 18 more days until our cheat weekend, having cheat weekends is keeping me incredibly focused on not cheating during our “rounds” of keto.
Thanks, bacon and keto and Dave.
