11-Month Keto Weightloss Update

It was 11 months ago that I started my weight loss journey and started leading a Ketogenic lifestyle.  My hope was that I would be down 100 pounds by the time I hit my one year anniversary... assuming that I stuck with it.  Sticking with a diet was something I just never was able to do until Keto came into my life. The most I had lost at any true attempt was 30 pounds. I distinctly remember how I felt 11 months ago -- emotionally stronger but disappointed in my body. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do the things in life that I wanted to do like travel and keep up. I was constantly sleepy, walked slowly, and didn't feel good a lot of the time.  My blood pressure was high, my blood sugar was high, and I was on a fast track to a significant health event. Never mind the day to day aches, exhaustion, and moodiness.

As I am closing in on my one year anniversary,  I wanted to share my progress update. I believe the last update I provided here was a weight loss of 67 pounds.  I am now 86 pounds down and 14 pounds away from my one year goal.  At this point, it doesn't matter if I don't make 100 pounds in a year... I am just so dang proud of myself for making it this far.  I am now at the back of my closet - I can fit into all my old clothes (some of which are even now too big on me).  I can put on clothing that was I was wearing a year ago and have one of those moments where you hold the fabric away to see the gap. (I haven't made it into standing in one pant leg though!)  I will provide a one year update on the anniversary but until then I will continue to Keto on.

Here is a recent Keto Friendy meal that I had for dinner -

2 Grilled pepperjack cheese stuffed sausages
1 serving of grilled eggplant and zucchini - I can't wait to make more of this, so so good.
1 Tbs. Sriracha Mayo
