Keto/Fasting – Week 2

It’s been a strange first week on my new eating plan. Ups and downs galore! I still lost two pounds! We had a family member in the hospital, a grandson with us, and I had an allergy/sinus headache for 2 1/2 days off and on. Wow, it was definitely a challenge starting a new eating plan.

I did not lift weights each day as I had planned. THAT will have to be fixed this week.

Well, I am writing this part of the blog two days after the above section, and I’ve been eating healthfully and GAINED 2 pounds! I made an appointment with my doctor for this coming Monday morning, so hopefully we can figure out what is going on with my body. It fights every step I make with weight loss.

Yes, I’m frustrated, angry, and not understanding why I’m in this situation. I do know that after my full hysterectomy 4 years ago, I’ve gained weight each year. I also take bipolar meds, and especially one of these encourages increased appetite and weight gain. Grrrrr!

It’s hard enough to lose the fat I’ve gained without having to also fight other stressors. BUT, I CAN do this. I WILL do this. I exercised a bit this morning – mostly housework stuff. I’ve eaten well. No sugars. So, I’ll keep doing this until I meet with my doc and figure out some help. I’m not too picky to refuse diet pills of some sort at this point. I have tried EVERYthing I can think of besides just going without food all together.

A positive note is that I’m sleeping very well and have better moods each day. I’m also not quite as fatigued as I was before, either. So, YAY for those things! I am thankful for every progress I make.

If you have or are going through a situation like mine, and you’ve made progress, please message below. I’m going to keep blogging and trying until I am healthy and thinner!

Hope you all have a great week!

Talk to you in a few days.
