I started Keto in July of 2018 when my doctor repeatedly described me as MORBIDLY OBESE and I failed my blood pressure test for my DOT physical. She also told me I was pre-diabetic. So basically a train wreck waiting to happen.
For the first 8 months I did reasonably well losing 40 pounds. For those who haven’t been around I started at 255. Since April of 2019 I haven’t lost weight. I’m hovering at 215 and cannot go down. It is very frustrating, to say the least, but I’m not going to give up.
Two little words keep coming up in my research. Well, two big words, Intermittent Fasting. OY. Anything with the word fasting in it gives me hives. I mean let’s face it I didn’t get to be 255 pounds because I like to miss meals. Everything I’m reading, though, is pointing me to this as a way to bust through this 5 month plateau. I did it one day a few months ago. It wasn’t that hard, especially if I do it from Saturday night to Sunday. I don’t normally eat breakfast on Sunday morning so the only thing I would miss would be my coffee. I love my coffee.
So that’s where I am. I am still doing keto but adding in IF one day a week. If one day doesn’t work I’ll add another day but honestly I’m hoping like crazy one day works. As for exercise, I am a member of a gym but have no extra hours in my day to go. Once it cools off, I live in Texas, I’ll start walking outside between routes, but I have a few weeks.
Stay tuned for a debt update. The reason I have no time lately is because I’m working as hard as I can to get the debt paid so I can stop thinking about it. I’ll tell you about how it’s going later this week.
