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.

My physical activity has continued this month, and I’m regularly doing push-ups, kettlebell swings and other forms of exercise during the morning. I really want to incorporate pull-ups, because they are exponentially harder than push-ups. That would build muscle faster, but I’m going for tone at the moment.

My current push-up max in one set is 51, compared to 40 last month.

Plus I started with my glucose tests, which I plan to perform weekly with whole foods. The first two weeks were Italian salami and steel cut oats.

Once the data comes in for dozens of foods, I’m hoping to learn a lot as well as uncover surprises that I may not have expected.

Numbers:

Starting Weight: 141 lbs

Ending Weight: 139 lbs

Monthly Weight Loss: 2 lbs

Total Weight Loss (Since 11/1/2015): 37 lbs

Noteworthy

  • Lowest Weight EVER recorded (again): 138 lbs
  • This is month #2 of consistent strength training
  • I weighed myself more as I approached the 140 lb barrier
  • Cheese danishes are my cheat of choice these days
  • Went to Cape May, NJ for a day trip, drank one beer (~7 total in 2016)

    Hi, I just started following you on YouTube. Great info! I just started keto last week and have about 40 lbs to lose. I was looking at your spreadsheets–do you think you started losing more consistently when you raised your calories and fat percent? I’m currently at 75f/67f/20c. I’m down 4 lbs so far this week. I’m sure it will slow down. But, I love eating this way and think it’s sustainable.
    Thanks,
    LaDonna S.
