One year

What a difference a year makes.  20 pounds gone.  

June 2017 on the left.  June 2018 on the right. 

I started watching what I ate by reducing calories.  It doesn’t work overly well for me, as I can’t eat more than about 1200 calories a day if I want to lose, and that very slowly.  Thank you PCOS.

I started keto April 3rd.  I lost four pounds the first week, and then discovered fat bombs.  I plateaued for about a month at that point – I didn’t realize my snacks were sabotaging my efforts.  Once I realized that, and cut the snacking back out, I started losing at a good rate again.  I’ve lost 14 pounds since April.

This week I hit two milestones – my first personal goal number, and the 20 pound mark.  What’s fun is I’m only 4 pounds away from the number I wanted to hit by my birthday…..which is still 6 weeks away!  I’m really excited to see what number I’ll be then.
