I know, you might be thinking that isn't THAT much of a nsv, but let me lay down some added info, aside from I got off the couch and walked. I live in MN. I HATE hot a... Read more

    So I have been doing Keto for 3 months now. Still figuring out all the nuances of it, but have a good grasp on it. One of the hardest things I am dealing with is adapting my mindset and thinking. I still compare myself to others that are losing so much weight quickly and I'm feeling left behi... Read more

  • September 9 Down 36.2 lbs

    9/13/2017 3:08:57 PM, by MYWAYHIWAY

    Keto way of eating is still working, weight loss has slowed a bit. Only 4.8 lost in August but so far 4 more in September. Funny to say only 4.8, it's an indicator of how well this way of eating works, previously I would have been thrilled with nearly 5 lbs in a month. I am having a lot of ba... Read more

Guess my first day of IF & OMAD is not going to happen today. Right now, I feel much better and wish I get my walk tonight after bible study s... Read more

    I just returned home after being away for three weeks, with NO SCALE! Initially I was terrified since I had been used to weighing every morning, before eating, sans clothing, and after going potty. And I'm betting that someone else out there has the same routine. Anyway, at the beginning of m... Read more
