The Journey

Keto Month 9

November, Month 9 on Keto (low carb, high fat) Down 55.3 lbs (lost 2.4 lbs this month).

Finally I’ve started reversing the tide… just in time for the holidays 😀 Regardless I will keep trucking along.

This month I had three-ish incidents of “cheating”.
1. On 11/10 I attended the PPF-Burgundy feast. I willfully and with conscious decision disregarded my eating guidelines. PPF Burgundy is a feast.. and the focus of the event is food and I decided that I wanted the full experience so I had it. It was fabulous. I knew I’d see a gain from it and it was totally worth it.
2. On 11/19 and 11/20 I ate birthday cake at Conall and then Erik’s birthday parties. It was there, I ate it. I knew better both times but I was weak in the face of cake. I’m more mad that I let it killed a fast-losing streak that had just started.
3. Thanksgiving came and although we made fairly good food choices I still ate too much.

I did finally drop into the 250s (and then out and then back in and then out and then back in). Honestly the first time 259 showed up on the scale my heart jumped. It was weird to finally break through.

This month I lost 0.5 inches off my upper thigh and 0.5 inch off my upper arm.
