Greetings my name is Nyxks and I am 38 going on eternity - I am trying to shed the weight like so many others out there. I'm Married to Mate-To-Nyx (Norman).

I feel that I have a good self image of myself, I also do not have any interest in what so ever as going on a "diet" to me plan healthy eating combined with regular working out is all that is needed (aka living a healthy lifestyle).

I do not actually have a weight goal that I am looking for, but I do have a Body Fat % that I am aiming for instead (K yes there is a goal, but reaching it isn't a goal on my end more my doctors side of the deal). I figure that is a better goal then the number of the scale since the scales never tell the full truth of the matter to start with.

When I had my BF% dun I was sitting at 35% thus I am aiming for 25% as my goal. Though I will admit that getting into the low 200's would be nice, but in truth if 25% BF means I'm still in the 200's then so be it to me that is still good, since its not fat that I'll be carrying but muscle weight.

On a side note, I have Acute Intermittent Porphyria (AIP) which though doesn't really effect weight loss in and of itself however it can effect it because of what is needed to prevent an attack goes counter to a lot of weight loss deals including the management of two other conditions I have (PCOS and Insulin Dependant Diabetes), so telling me to go or do LCHF isn't even a remote option unless I would like to end up in the Hospital with an attack.

All that being said I've managed to work out a plan with my medical team and we've come up with a plan that works for me - which is 60% carbs, 25% protein and 15% fat, not to far off of what SP says or what the Canadian Food Guide recommends, and its enough to keep me from an attack.

I am not much of a meat eater, preferring a plant based deal. I'm also allergic to dairy and coconut, plus I have issues with eggs, nightshades, and a host of other foods and supplemental items so its a jugging act to get things right for my own health - but something I'm always learning about and working to achieve.

Outside of all this I am a pagan/lds and am into macintosh computers, graphic design, web design and photography. I can be found on FB, Instagram and Twitter under Nyxks.

My Husband and I are ChildFree by choice and by natures will.

I have PCOS, Diabetes, Celiac, and Porphyria - all of them make getting the weight off a minor problem for one reason or another, and all of them carry medical problems which I have to live with, but only one of them can kill me if i eat wrong or take the wrong medications (talk about a b and a half).
