My wife Amanda is now officially in ONEDERLAND! She has struggled with weight, cravings and sugar addiction most of her life and was kind of resigned to the "it is what it is," type of thing. About 6 months ago I had mentioned maybe trying to eat Keto for a month and was shocked when without even asking her, she agreed to try it with me. "What's a month right?" The first few weeks were tough, really tough and we each relied heavily upon each other to make it through. She kept me from quitting 4 days in when I experienced the worst dehydration I've ever had. The sugar withdrawals were bad too. She kept me in the game, and I would do the same for her. It was a back and forth comfort thing, some days were worse for her, some for me. Then finally, when we hit the end of the month we were shocked with the changes. It had happened in such a short time, it wasn't even a question whether or not to continue. The question was, "Can we do this indefinitely?" Her energy shot through the roof, her use of a rescue inhaler (she has asthma) drastically decreased and more importantly she began to become confident in her body. Keto is like a snowball, the more positive changes you experience, the more resolved you become in this way of eating. This is how a once self described sugar addict has not cheated, deviated or even sniffed a cheat meal.
I can't begin to describe how proud I am of her resolve, and transformation. I once told her I am almost more excited about her changes than my own. It's so fun now watching her try on clothes that she once only dreamed of wearing, and her happiness is infectious.
