Yesterday was my one year ketoversary. When I look at these pictures, part of me is disappointed that I didn’t completely give it my all. I was side tracked and derailed every few weeks, never truly giving keto a 100% chance. I always stuck to it for a month or so and then would fall off for a day or two to a week to a month. I “wondered” why I wasn’t losing weight, but I absolutely knew why. I was only cheating myself. I would convince myself that I was consciously deciding to “cheat,” but then I would feel guilty. I’d think, well I already did this, so I may as well go ham and eat whatever I can for the rest of the day so that I can restart tomorrow. There was a point that I downed a bunch of trail mix because I knew I wouldn’t be able to have chocolate and raisins the next day. Do I even like trail mix?! Not really! Did I ever eat it regularly before keto? No at all! So why did I feel like I had to have it in that moment? It took just one final day in December to say that enough is enough. I want to do this for myself and I want to commit for my own mental and physical health. I have more issues with food that I would like to share at this moment. BUT. I have to remember that I am NOT where I started. I have to give myself credit for that this is the longest I have ever stuck to ANY sort of diet and maintained ANY sort of weight loss. I finished the year off losing 30+ pounds (I haven’t weighed myself in the last month since rededicating, so it could be more). I’m down a pant size. My old clothes fit better. I stuck to it over the holidays and vacation. I have so much to look forward to this year. Engagement photos, vacations, wedding dress shopping, parties, holidays, and OUR WEDDING. I truly feel that ever step will be life changing. .
