Thursday Weigh-In - July 20th:
07/20/2017: -2.2 pounds
Total lost: 44.4 pounds
Current Weight: 185.6 pounds
Six weeks low carb/keto with no cheating and I am down to my lowest weight since April of 2006!
In these last six weeks I've lost 13 pounds, worked harder than I have in the last year at both diet and exercise and it's paying off!
I know I have weeks coming up when I'll stall or lose nothing for a while but I feel more ready to handle that than I was last week. In fact, the scale did not move at all this week until 2 days ago and I handled it very well and diplomatically but I am enjoying the weight loss while I can!
I'm now only 0.6 lbs away from my short-term goal of 185 pounds and then the next short term will be 180 lbs which will equal a 50 pound loss :O I can't wait!
I've done well with food this week although I did stick to a lot of the same things so I'm branching out into more recipes this week: I plan to try to make cloud bread, eat the taco salad I found buried in the downstairs freezer and Charles is going to make a keto garlic Parmesan shrimp recipe.
I'm also handling the cravings well. I have some keto pizza coming tomorrow (can only order it online here and I've heard some amazing things about it), tried some new low carb/keto chocolate today and am basically finding substitutions for the things I crave that I can have and not ruin my plan.
And I'm doing great with exercise. There are days when I have to take off two days in a row and days where I can work out 4 or 5 days in a row so I'm taking it as it comes and also sticking to the walking challenge.
I also saw my doctor this week and he is thrilled with my progress and agreed to halve my cholesterol meds, take blood in 3 months and see if I can control my cholesterol with diet and exercise! One of my main goals was to get rid of as many of my non-psych meds as possible so this is step one!!
Now let's see what I can accomplish this coming week!
