Thursday Weigh-In - May 10th - Week Fifteen Strict Keto and Some Thoughts on Food Choices

Thursday Weigh-In - May 10th:                     
05/10/2018:                             -0.2 pounds
Lost Since 01/29/18 Restart  -14.4 pounds
Total lost Since 06/29/15:      -72.4 pounds
Current Weight:                     157.6 pounds
Days Cheat-Free:                       102 days

Well, it's a loss even though it's a tiny one and, frankly, I'm not too worried about it right now. The scale might be more or less stuck but I did fit into size 6 Capri's and shorts this past weekend when I bought some summer clothes and since they're the same brand and style as my jeans, this means I can order size six jeans and wear them (the store didn't have the size I needed in a "short").

So, with that and the fact that my wedding ring is so loose that it almost fell off my finger yesterday, I'm not going to obsess about the scale at this time.

Now, that's not to say that certain changes can't be made to get things moving in the right direction again. I meant to talk about all this stuff on my last weigh-in day but my new meds, starting my course and other stuff really threw me off and I just kind of spaced on it but this is what I've been meaning to post about for the last two weeks:

Basically, I think it's time to get serious about my food choices again and stop taking little bites here and there just because my thinking is, "oh, I went to the gym so I can have more food... nom, nom, nom." and "Oh, a tiny sip of Charles' Maple Liquor won't hurt." Do you guys know how sweet that stuff is? It tastes amazing and I don't even normally like any alcohol!

And, "Oh, I'll eat some keto muffins, 2 protein bars and a protein shake today." Ugh! What am I doing to myself? Yes, I'm still not cheating but there's no healthy stuff in almost any of that!

And, yes, I can have SOME more food but it can't just be bites of keto stuff when I feel like it. EVERYTHING has to go back to being measured and weighed and I need to get serious with this again and focus more on food quality over quantity and what's the easiest thing to grab especially as I'm at the gym for an hour less a day now so I need to rethink my caloric amount again since I was burning way, way more calories when I was doing two hours at the gym versus one hour.

This is also not so I can lose crazy amount of weight. I think I'm a lot closer to my final goal that it appears because I honestly don't think I have another 28 lbs to lose but I DO still have something to lose (especially around my midsection), maybe another ten pounds, and I want to really focus on healthy versus fast and easy.

So I'm rededicating myself to weighing and measuring everything that goes in my mouth and actually eating some "real" food! Anyone want to join me?
