…but I’m trying to stay positive- still 43 lbs. down from where I started so that can’t be a bad thing.
We know I failed at not weighing myself and, since then, I’ve been weighing daily and it’s doing what I knew it would- driving me nuts! This morning, I was basically exactly where I was last Tuesday which is annoying because I haven’t had a cheat day, haven’t screwed up and I’ve added a ton of exercise this week. I’m doing the bike for limited cardio, some kettlebell, boxing, weights and tons of basketball with my son and still…the same weight. I think it’s too early for a plateau but who knows…I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing until June 17th….then eat Raising Canes and start all over.
That whole “weighing once a month” thing lasted about 3 days…I just can’t do it.
We always say that the number on the scale shouldn’t really mean that much because you could still be losing inches or making other changes, or you could be gaining some muscle or retaining some water weight…but, truth is, I’ve been focused on that damn number my entire life and just “not worrying” about it seems impossible.
I had official weigh in’s on Mondays….so this Monday was the 4 week mark…but I started on April 17thand todays is May 17th….so which should be considered “a month”? Is 4 weeks a month or is it from date to date?
On my 4th week weigh in, I was up 2 lbs.- I didn’t agree with it but I figured it’s because I had gone over my calorie goal and fat goal on Saturday and Sunday with a ton of snacking and I just didn’t feel like I could stop eating.
That’s simple….it’s keto with Shar in front of it…but it’s so much more than that.
I started the keto lifestyle on April 17th, 2017 with the hopes of losing a few pounds and I went all out- I started watching YouTube videos and doing research and trying to figure out what I could eat and what I needed to do.
Today is ONE MONTH since stating keto….so let’s break it down!
Week 1 – lost 12.2 lbs.
Week 2 – lost 4.8 lbs.
Week 3 – lost 5.0 lbs.
Week 4 – gained 2 lbs.
Total lost – 20 lbs.
