Previously known as "caloriesandcoffee.com." I am on a quest to change my life by losing weight and becoming healthy and fit. My plan involves counting calories with My Fitness Pal, low carb and IIFYM and working out. I'm not striving for thin, I'm striving for fit!

Thursday Weigh-In - August 17th - Ten Weeks Low Carb/Keto - Half Way There!!
Thursday Weigh-In - August 17th:
08/17/2017: -2.2 pounds
Total lost: 51.2 pounds
Current Weight: 178.8 pounds
Finally... I finally hit my 50 pounds loss (and 1.2 pounds over that) which put me in the upper 170s and slightly more than half way to my goal! I haven't been in the 170's since around 2005!
This also means that I have officially lost more than I have left to lose, and that I've lost 19.8 pounds in the 10 weeks that I've been doing low carb/keto without cheating!!
My size 12 jeans are getting looser and looser every day but the 10's don't fit yet so I'm a little stuck there (unless I want to looking for new jeans which I don't because I've worn the same brand and type of jeans for several years now and I love them) so I'm just going to live with the loose jeans for now.
It's almost hard for me to believe that I've stuck with the no cheating things for 10 weeks (actually 70 days today!) but at the same time I feel like I can keep going indefinitely! I basically have one planned cheat for Christmas day (which is still quiet a bit away) and the whole plateau thing is up in the air because I haven't hit that point yet.
As well as sticking to the eating plan this week I've also hit my steps goals on all but 2 days and I've continued to stick with the yoga challenge. Now I just need to start up my serious workouts again (hopefully tomorrow) and get back to work on my current dog commission.
Oh, and I'm only 9 pounds away from being out of the "obese" BMI and into the "overweight" and I can't wait!
This is THE plan for me and I'm not about to change that!!
