My blog has often talked about my weight, which has been an issue for a very long time. I have talked about losing 90 pounds by the time I turned 50, but that came and went with nothing to write home about. Well, my new hope is 102 by 52.
You might think what makes this dope think he is going to lose 102 pounds by the time he turns 52 (in about 10 months). Well, thanks to the Keto diet, I am well on my way, losing 55 pounds since March. That weight loss has put me past the halfway point of losing 102 pounds to get down to my goal of 169 pounds. I am a mere 46 pounds away! Still plenty of work to do, but very doable at this point. I think I will achieve my goal by the end of the year.
The Keto diet has been the easiest diet I have been on. When I reach my goal, I am going to go back to a more traditional diet to maintain my new weight. Last month, I started incorporating a cheat meal on the first of the month … I had a couple of slices of pizza and a donut, which made me gain 3 pounds the next day, but that was short lived. I ended up losing a net 3 pounds over the remainder of the week.
This diet, for me, is a sprint, not a marathon. I want to get back to eating regular food, just at a reduced pace to maintain the goal I will have achieved. It has started to get monotonous eating so many of the same things. That being said, I think I can make it through until the end of the year when the scale releases me from this diet.
I have started going to the gym a bit and walking more, but the diet is the key for me. I very rarely feel hungry on this diet, which is an added bonus.
Thanks for checking in, I have to get my stuff together to head to the gym.
