Hi Aunt Sheshie,

tomorrow will be my day too. I'm closing this day with 20 whopping carbs. The way I figure though, it's better than 200. I'm still in ketosis.

my Mom is so freaked out about this kind of diet. When I told her about the Ketogenic diet, all she kept saying to me, everyway possible is about her doctor telling her to stay away from cheese. Well I found it's better to not eat or talk about cheese with mom.


I'm not about to tell her, now I don't want to do ANY carbs,,,,I think she might have be committed for my own safety. LOL

Hello all! Wanted to check in. I am low-carbing along. Had a date night with the hubby last night so I had some not great sips and bites of things, but it didn't go overboard and I'm back on track today. Usually something like that derails me. I am working to just maintain no-tracking low carb. I have been playing with trying to reduce calories and it felt like I was going nowhere and I was hungry so I recently decided to just eat if I was hungry! My weight is still very stable at 155/6. I can live with that for now. I am happy with keto as a way of life, not just a means to an end.

As for low carb with family - my mom and sister have both done it off and on so they are right there with me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi Des,
so nice to see you. Yes, me too. Keto is the new normal for me. Zero Carb is my goal each day. I find that when I want to eat off zero, I'm still keto. Which isn't bad.

That is what happen today. So tomorrow I aim again for zero.

Well since I last posted here, nope, I haven't been zero carb. But I'm starting a rally here today. I want to make it to Wednesday with only zero carb. Now I am going with the eggs and cheeses not counting as carbs for they are in the animal kingdom. Although I will major on zero carb cheese.


I've got my bone broth made, and that will help a lot.

I will try and recoup the loss, by going as low cal as I can today. Although if I'm really hungry I will eat. But I'm hoping to activate the Judd affect.

Judd effect? I must go google. I'm still pretty clean low carb, keto chow most of the time. Feeling like doing a loaded salad for lunch today though. My weight soooometimes dips but I have seriously been sitting at 155. Just stuck there. It's a good place to be stuck for now. I have been working out still and I'm pretty sure my clothes are starting to fit better and better.

I put myself on a 'no cheat October' and have done ok so far. I did have Wendy's Chili which is less keto than some options, but still way better than the fries I could have had! I'm determined to be happy with where I'm 'stuck' for now.

Howdy y'all!.. just thought I'd drop in for a minute... my diet is a shambles, I'm embarrassed to say, my stress level has gone through the roof... I found out last week I have "baby cataracts" in my eyes & will most likely need to have surgery eventually... it's not urgent, but just the thought of it is making me a basket-case... I'm going back to the eye doc Monday to have my eyes dilated so she can get a good look at the situation... I'm hoping she'll tell me I can wait 'til next April & May to have the surgeries... if she agrees, I can relax & concentrate on ZC again...

It looks like everybody is doing well... I'll check in again when I have a clearer picture of what's gonna happen with me & my baby blues...........

Auntie Sheshie - how stressful! Sorry for the less than optimal news about your eyes. I don't know anything about cataracts... Hopefully it is something that can be dealt with without a lot of uncertainty? Thanks for stopping in, try and find other ways to deal with the stress too. Walks? Time with friends?

HUGS!

Hey Ladies,
Aunt Sheshie,

they have dealing with cataracts down pat. Don't sweat it, I've known lots of folks to have the surgery and it really works out well. Your life will brighten up.....

Hope everyone is having a nice Thanksgiving.

I celebrate mine tomorrow, so I thought I'd start this zero carb back up again today and start becoming more accountable. I will zero at least 5 days a week and low carb when dh is off work. I've been bouncing between 170 and 176 for a while now.

Start weight: 173

November 26 173
