  • Hi Noemi. I just weighed in at 316 pounds. This is my all time highest weight. If you’d like maybe we can be accountability buddies?

  • You can do it Noemi.  I'm not sure how much I weigh because I threw out my scale but I'm sure I'm over 315.  I did the dry-out January challenge (no alcohol) and decided to do the no sugar challenge and morphed into Keto.  I figured I could do anything for one month.  Now I'm hooked.   I'm a carbaholic so I feel your pain letting them go.  Especially chips!!!!  I feel really good and plan on keeping it up for 2020.   I can feel my clothes are looser already, but I will not use a scale, they piss me off.    

    Good luck to you!  You can do it.   Just take it one meal at a time and concentrate on what you CAN have.   Everything's better with bacon!

  • I'm right there with you three at 315 when I started. Doc said I would have T2D within a year if I did not loose weight. I'm 65 and it's time. Maybe we could check in with each other periodically to keep us on plan.

  • kissybiz Did doing the "dry-out" show any noticeable weight loss?

  • Mishymoo Hi, yes, actually I have seen results.  I feel better overall too.   Right now I refuse to use a scale, but co-worker's have noticed a difference, I can feel it in my clothes.   I'm still limiting drinking a lot, no processed foods, def no sugar.

  • So almost two months at it so far.   I think I was in a honeymoon phase at first but that's over, it's getting harder, I've been more tired lately.  I've been craving carbs, burgers, fried chicken, mexican food!    I've successfully gone out to eat a few times and ate healthy, but blew it recently at a party with the wine.  Oy! My aching head!!!!  Oh well, it's life, I jumped right back on plan and didn't dump on myself with regret.     One thing about Keto is I can't wrap my head around eating so much fat and rich food made with cream, but I'm enjoying trying new recipes and I'm sticking with it for 2020.   I'm turning 60 in November, so hope to be a hot momma with less aches and pains for my birthday.  😊

  • kissybiz I hear you, I'm one month in with Keto down 17lbs..last couple of days I've struggled wanting those potato chips,  but I didn't give in.   It's always good when you see results, last week was not successful, no change however some of my clothes I'm noticing are feeling a little looser.

  • Mishymoo Wow!  Congrats on 17 lbs!!!  That's awesome!   It's pushing through the hard parts that makes us the strongest...having said that, I went way over everything last night, but back at it today.  

    I read the following quote to myself every morning, maybe it will inspire you too:  "You must be single minded - Drive for the one thing on which you have decided." - Gen George Patton   (The one thing I've decided for 2020 is my health)

  • Hi- I am new to keto been doing it for about 2 weeks. I hate the scale too. Lol I did it get on it a few days after i started. 😶 So i dont know if I lost any weight. I just hope I'm not wasting my time. I think I am a bit discouraged.
