Weightloss Wednesday

7/26 Weightloss Wednesday: Celebrating Too Hard!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday! I am a little disappointed in myself because I let myself celebrate my 200 lb weight loss a bit too hard and my weight has creeped up to 202.2.  It’s a little disappointing to be n this side of the 200 line again but it made me wake up to the fact that I can’t fall back into old patterns.

So what did I do?  The big thing was I stopped Intermittent Fasting when I am at work and would eat cold cuts and cheese all night.  Just way too much food.  I wasn’t even hungry really.  I also had chips and salsa one night and a few Halo Top pints.  In short, I’ve been celebrating.

But, I can’t rest on my laurels and need to keep moving forward.  I don’t think I realized the power of having that big goal of 200 lbs motivating me forward and helping me keep disciplined.  So now I’m recommitting myself to getting under 190 lbs and returning to the habits that brought me success.

Wish me luck!

7/19 Weightloss Wednesday: Still Losing!

 

It’s Weightloss Wednesday! Man oh man, what a week!  After the thrill of finally getting below 200 last week, I slacked off a bit and fully expected my weight to creep up over that line this week but that is not what happened.  as of this morning, I am at 198 lbs which means that not only have I lost a total of 202 lbs so far but more than a pound and a half since last week.  Wow!

So here’s why that is so amazing to me.  I did 2 things this weekend to celebrate that milestone.  First thing I did was eat a big ice cream sundae.

Now, this isn’t as bad as you might think because that’s Halo Top ice cream which is very low in sugar, homemade “Magic Shell” that is essentially flavored coconut oil and homemade whipped cream, both of which are sugar free.  It wasn’t bad in terms of total carbs but it’s easily the largest dessert I’ve eaten since I started this journey of mine.

Then the next night we ordered Mexican food for take out and I totally chowed down on some chips and salsa.  Definitely not keto!  But I fully expected to see my weight tick up as a result of these 2 indulgences so another pound and a half of weight loss is pretty shocking to see.  I think the major takeaway from this is my Insulin Resistance seems to be a thing of the past which is great news for me.

However, all of that is done and I’m done celebrating.  I am going to continue on keto and keep my weight falling until I get down to at least 170 and then I’ll see what happens but for now, the next big goal is 190 and I know I’ll get there!

7/12 Weightloss Wednesday: My Body is a Onederland!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!   IT FINALLY HAPPENED!  I am under 200 lbs for the first time in my adult life!  I am so thrilled!  I told my wife before I went to sleep that I was having trouble falling asleep because I was pretty confident that when I woke up, I would finally be where I wanted to be.  It felt like Christmas morning!

So as of right now I am at 199.6 lbs which means I have lost 200.4 lbs.  Wow!

This WLW is going to be a little shorter than most because I’m going to spend some time this week writing a big post giving a lot of the detail of my journey and will probably dedicate the entire podcast this week to it.  So I’ll link to that when it comes out but for now, I DID IT!  3 long years of work have paid off and my weight begins with a 1.  That’s incredible!

7/5 Weightloss Wednesday: Starting My Kettlebells Again!

7/5 Weightloss Wednesday: Starting My Kettlebells Again!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday! As of this morning I’m at 202.8 which means I have lost 197.2 lbs so far.  It also means that I am at the exact same weight I was at last week.  A little disappointing but I feel good so I’ll take it.

I’ve talked a bit about not doing the kettlebell exercising anymore because I pulled a muscle a few months ago and then not starting back up again when the muscle healed.  I think somewhere in the back of my head I was worried about reinjuring myself so I had trouble finding the motivation necessary to start back up.  I decided to totally restart the program and go again from the beginning while spending at least 10-15 minutes before I ever pick up the kettlebell doing some stretching.  I think this will be what I need to do to get back in the swing (Get it? Kettlebell swings? Anyone?) of things and get to where I want to be.

Nothing much more to report.  My food is where it needs to be with the exception of an order of onion rings I ate a few days ago.  Not homemade and low carb but a crappy order from a burger joint.  I don’t even like how I feel after I eat them but it seems weird to eat a bunless burger and not have something on the side.

That’s it for me this week.  How are things going for you?  Let me know in the comments!

6/28 Weightloss Wednesday: So Close…Still

6/28 Weightloss Wednesday: So Close…Still

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!   As of this morning I’m at 202.8 lbs which means I have lost 197.2 lbs.  All good news, right?  Well, I have been stuck within 3 lbs of my goal of 200 for about a month now and it is INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING!!

I know that plateaus happen and all I need to do is stay the course and it will eventually happen but good grief it’s taking forever.  All I want to do is get below that line and I will breathe a huge sigh of relief having met a goal I have been striving towards for over 3 years.  I just keep telling myself it will happen and I need to calm down about it.  If you had told me 3 years ago I would be 3 lbs away from 200 and upset about it, I would have pointed out how stupid that was.  Now I’m here and freaking out a bit.

As for exercise, this has been a bit of an issue.  Ever since I pulled a muscle doing the kettlebell exercises, I’ve been a little scared to get back in the saddle on those.  I have had trouble finding the time to devote to them with the 28 day challenge stuff as well as my night job and the other stuff in my life.  Finding 30-45 minutes where I can exercise has been difficult.  Obviously if it was a priority, I would find the time.  It just isn’t for me right now.  I really need to get back on the ball!

As for everything else, inventory is finally done so hopefully I’ll have a little more time to devote to this site and the work we are doing here.  I am so invested in helping as many people as I can lose weight with the ketogenic diet so I want to continue posting helpful articles and these Weightloss Wednesday progress videos.  Hopefully as work eases up, I’ll have the necessary time to do what I want here.

In other news, the 28 Day Challenge is about to restart on the first!  That means if you go to MySugarFreeJourney.com/28Day and sign up, you will start getting the weekly ketogenic meal plans as well as acess to our fantastic community of people just like you who want to lose weight with the ketogenic diet and my nightly coaching videos.  I hope to see you there!
