Keto Update: Week 6
Oooooooookay, you guys. So I wish this update was going to be all positive and be about how much I love being on keto and in ketosis and about how I've lost all this weight, but it's not. For the first couple weeks I did so great on keto, I lost 11 pounds, my husband started doing it with me because he was seeing my results. He was more into the mental clarity and energy aspect of the diet but is definitely loving the weight loss achieved!
For some reason these past few weeks I've had zero will power. I would be doing keto for like-four days and then binge, and repeat. I started feeling super guilty and sulking around. My energy has depleted as well which is something I the because I was really loving be able to keep up with my kiddos all the time.
Anyway, I'm here today to promise to give myself at least 21 days. I read that it takes 21 days to form a habit so that's what I'm giving myself. I'm challenging myself to ask, "Am I worth 21 days?" I know I am and I hope that after these next three weeks I'll come out stronger and with more motivation than ever. Luckily I do have Scott doing keto with me as well as one of my best friends who I also work with. In theory I should have support at home and at work which will be amazing because we all know I waiver and am on edge all the time about food! I constantly think about it and always want what I can't have. I feel like when I was in ketosis though, I didn't think like that, so maybe it has something to do with the hunger aspect and how keto combats that. I'm happy to say that I didn't gain much back so will be starting up again at 13 pounds less than before... At least that's one good thing!
I'm back on day one of starting the diet over again so---here's to hoping that day to is easier and I can get back into ketosis quickly and get this sow on the road! I'll post some of my favorite recipes below too to help newbies start!
