Congrats. Do you track calories in/out with a food and activity tracker? I have been tracking for a few years and was never too concerned about macros, just cals in/out and was able to lose 25% of my body weight. I am around my ideal weight now but up 7 or 8 pounds from my lowest weight. 5 or 6 of that is winter weight I put on since the weather turned and my daily steps went down dramatically so I consider that a win really, especially considering how much liquor I have been drinking (and drunk munchies I have been eating) causing me to go way over my daily calories in goal far too often.
I am going to give keto a try again.* I tried it once a couple years ago briefly but I had to stop because I was not getting enough fiber (i.e. I was doing it wrong). I have been paying close attention to my daily fiber now and done some more research on keto and think I can do it properly this time as long as I can force myself to eat low net carb, high fat high fiber snacks when I drink. Weather is finally starting to turn a little so I should be able to start walking more again soon and until it turns fully I think I am going to do some mall walking. Went today for a bit over an hour and was able to get most of my 10k steps goal for the first time in ages.
p.s. thanks for adding me to that fb group. I don’t post on FB, just use it to follow friends and family. I use my real name there so don’t out my real name on the forums if you know who I am on FB.
*30 net carbs today with 36 of 38 for my daily fiber goal but on my 2nd whiskey. If I go past 3 or 4 whiskeys I may want a snack. Trying to force myself to snack on nuts/seeds, or maybe chz if I am at/over my fiber goal, when drinking. already told my brother to eat some of my high carb foods and tossed out some things I knew he wouldn’t eat. have a keto centric shopping list set up for my next trip to the grocery store early this week.
