Keto Month 10

Graph of weight in December 2017

December 2017, Month 10 on Keto (low carb, high fat) Down 55.5 lbs (lost 0.2 lbs this month).

The holidays are hard. Even though I only lost 0.2 lbs this month I’m going to take it as a win.

This month I had three-ish incidents of “cheating”.
1. On 12/10 we went out to dinner with some friends and although I didn’t eat all the things I did have two alcholic drinks and ate quite a bit. That accounted for the huge bump towards the beginning of the month.
2. Christmas happened and we were in Montana. Again, I didn’t eat all the things, but I did have quite a bit of chocolate, cookies and other carb-y things that I probably shouldn’t have had. Three times during that week I woke up with a carb hangover. I was surprised to find a 3.5 lb loss on the scale after we returned. I certain did not work for that loss and it honestly should not have been there.
3. We had a low-key New Years party and I both ate too much and had way way way too much cream cheese with hot pepper jelly dip on wheat thins. If it weren’t for this bit of overdoing it I would have shown a 3 pound loss for the month.

Regardless, even with this little bit loss this puts me down 55.5 lbs for the year. I think that’s pretty fabulous. This month I bought new jeans. I went into the store wearing size 26 and came out wearing size 18. I also got an adorable little black dress.

This month I lost 1 inch off my waist, 1 inch off my hips, 2 inches off my upper thigh, 1 inch off my upper arm and 1 inch off my calf. Considering the scale only moved 0.2 lbs this is phenomenal.
