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.
