It is week 43. My starting weight was 267 pounds. I have lost weight, but I have also gained weight. As of this morning, I weigh 248.5, a loss of 18.5 pounds. In the last 43 weeks, I have had a weight loss of up to 39 pounds. I ultimately failed to stick to my diet for nearly 8 weeks beginning around November. And when Thanksgiving rolled around, I was entirely off my program.
I didn’t give up. I was just struggling. And I’m still struggling, but I haven’t given up. I am in a nearly 2-1/2 month slump but I am still fighting. The keto diet is still the easiest way of eating I have come across so far. However, like probably everyone in this day and time, I am truly addicted to sugar & carbohydrates.
With some discipline, I am sure I can overcome the carb thing. I have already taken measures to rid the house of things I should not eat. I find that my temptation comes when I get bored. I have to find something to do.
I still have not found a way to practice my saxophone without hurting my neck or back. I can’t go to the gym, but I don’t have to. I can do many exercises without going to the gym, but going there gets me out of the house for a while. Boredom. It is my enemy. I need something to do during the day to keep me busy. Television is not doing the trick:)
Not sure what this post is really about except to say, I’m still moving forward. I have the right stuff to eat on hand and I know foods to avoid. There are plenty of things, and even exercises, that can get me out of the house. I just have to do them.
