I chose the Keto diet as the way to lose weight. I did pretty well until Thanksgiving, at which time two things happened: (i) I fell of the wagon and (ii) the amount of hair that was falling out was increasing. I did a little online research (I know that's only partially accurate, but it's all I have) and the suggestion was to take a little break.

Well, of course you don't have to tell me that twice! I didn't really diet from Thanksgiving until this week, so a 7 week break. I didn't weigh myself on Monday; I told myself that I didn't need that mental picture bringing me down. I vowed to not weigh until the first week in February, hoping to minimize the mental damage and hopefully by then I'll be close to where I was 7 weeks ago.

Today, I wore a skirt that doesn't fit if I gain any weight. It still fits (though maybe a bit tighter than the last time I wore it) which tells me that I may not be as bad off as I expected. That gave me a little bit of a boost!

But I'm always amazed at how much better I feel when I'm on the Keto diet. And I'm trying to figure out, knowing that, why I fall off the wagon. Hopefully I'll be smarter this year!

Keto on and thanks for listening Sparkpeople!

    Since you just restarted keto, take pics and measurements. Keto can transform the shape of your body even thou you can't see it on the scale. I need to get back on track too!!
