I’m not suppose to struggle with my weight.
The Struggle is Real
Starting in 2015 life threw me several curve balls. I had a cancer scare which made me change course direction and close my personal training business and go back to school.
In the middle of that huge life redirect I was still a wife and mom and life continued on its own course. One of my children started to struggle with their mental health. Through several extended stay hospitalizations for my child and the overwhelm of being a returning college student everything, including me, began to spiral out of control.
My Attempt to Take Control
Frustrated (and desperate) I went to my doctor and had her run a complete metabolic panel, test my thyroid, and every other test we could think of …. TWO YEARS in a row. There had to be something wrong with my body. I almost hoped she’d tell me something was wrong because then I wouldn’t be. Really, not only did I need answers for my own weight problem but I didn’t want all the advice I had been given women over the years to be wrong.
The Turning Point
I already monitored my carb intake from following my previously written program, it didn’t exceed 40% of my total daily calories so I was very familiar what foods has carbs and how many (note: EVERYTHING except animal protein has carbs). As a result knowing what to eat came pretty easy for me. The most challenging part was mentally convincing myself that even whole-grain and fruits had to be avoided. And giving myself permission to slather butter on my food was initially mental torture, delicious torture but torture all the same. 🙂
…if you struggle with your weight and dieting and exercise alone barely moves the scale,
…If you’ve tried everything but the weight seems to keep coming back,
…If you feel stuck in a cycle of trying, failing then giving up and repeating again
…If you are where I was, at a point where you are tired of being fat, sick and tired.
…then GO KETO.
