Keto Weight Loss Before and After Pic

This November marks my one year anniversary eating low-carb, high-fat. It got me to think about the most important lessons learned.

One year ago, I had no idea where this path would lead. I was doing my best to adapt to the keto diet but there were plenty of days where self-confidence was lacking.

Weight Loss Update – October 2016

Keto Weight Loss Tracking - October 2016I began to believe this a couple months ago, but it’s becoming abundantly clear – my weight has settled between 139-143 lbs.

Could I restrict carbs to a crazy level and attempt shedding even more body fat? Of course.

But I don’t want to do that. I found a good balance between eating the correct macro composition, enjoying the foods I eat, and having extra carbohydrates on certain occasions. Rarely do I take an entire “cheat day” from morning to night stuffing my face.

That lit a fire under me for sure.

Weight Loss Update – August 2016

Keto Weight Loss Update August 2016The downward weight loss trend continues, and I’m actually beginning to become surprised. Once I stopped tracking calories, I thought that my maintenance weight would be in the mid 140’s.

However, this month I weighed in the 130’s for the first time since growing up.

This also included about 3-4 times where I cheated with carbs, but I’m so tuned into the keto diet that I immediately want to get back on track after a binge such as this.

I immediately feel worse, and it usually lasts until the next day. And at this point in my life, I’m trying to limit the amount of time I feel crappy because of eating crappy.
