Alright, y’all. Please excuse the ill fitting undergarments. I have other bras and boy shorts, but these were the ones I took them in the beginning. Anywho, here are my stats…
Race: African-American ( Black)
SW: 274.0 lbs
UGW: 140.0 lbs
I still don’t have any goals or rewards set out. If anyone wants to message me any ideas, I am all for it. I’d also like to thank y’all for following my blog and continuing to encourage me and put up with my constant flip flopping and binging. I honestly would’ve deleted if it weren’t for y’all! As for diet, I don’t know about keto. It worked for me, but I have such a hard time staying with it. I think i am jumping too far into cutting out things and I don’t believe that is helping me mentally. Does anyone with PCOS or insulin resistance know of another diet that isn’t hard to stay on?
What would y’all think about me becoming a vegetarian? Has it helped anyone with pcos? Has it helped anyone with weight loss? Has it helped anyone’s skin complexion? Are there any books or youtube channels I can check out?
She is 21 and has lost 112 lbs!!!!! She still has a bit more to go (41 lbs) and would love some followers/support. Check her out :D.
Alright, so you guys have probably noticed I have updated about this particular situation. Well, here is the deal. I have failed to keep on track with my diet once again. It’s really gotten to a point where I sat down and asked myself today….
" How bad do I actually want to be healthy?"
My answer was bad. I want this SO bad…. HOWEVER I also recognized that no matter how bad I want it that if I do not put in the work it will never happen. I am restarting keto tomorrow. There is no reason not too. There is no reason to allow myself to spiral deeper into my weight problems, health problems, and mental problems. If I don’t do it now, then when? Time will pass me by and I’ll be regretful and upset.
If anyone has any tips, please give them to me? I am open to all and any types of criticism also.
P.S. I weighed myself ( it was after dinner) and I am 274 lbs. I am literally almost 300 lbs. Not only is that frightening mentally, the weight is showing physically. I am tired all the time. I can’t even do simple things without getting winded…. It’s getting difficult to just live and it shouldn’t be like that.
My friend suggested that I make another appointment at the hospital to talk about wls again. I think I should too. That’s what I want. Wish me luck y’all. I will update again once I have gone to my appointment. If anyone has any tips for me, please send some.
It’s like I can’t seem to stay on track :(. Anywho, here are my new stats….
SW: 270.0 lbs
GW1: 260 lbs
GW2: 250 lbs
UGW: 140 lbs-150 lbs
It sucks that I got above my highest weight (260) :(. It sucks that I just let it go on because “what’s the point?”. That type of mindset is holding me back. Literally, nothing is holding me back but me and my negative mindset. :/
Also, I will have more goal weights I just didn’t feel the need to write them all out….I might do it in the sidebar of my tumblr though? So, back to posting 90% fitspo/exercise/body inspirations/ weight loss advice and keto!!!! Keto was hard to stick to, but it was so incredibly worth it. I felt better, I looked better, and my PCOS was getting better!
Other people: “So, I have been dieting and things are going ok. I lost 1.5 lbs and I have dropped 7 dress sizes and lost 50 inches.”
Me: ” I haven’t been dieting and I’m pretty sure I gained a lot of weight back :/.”
Yeah, I haven’t been dieting or exercising. I gained weight back too. I have to restart again. I’ll most likely restart on Friday. I need to break myself of the mindset that new things happen on Mondays. I also need to break the habit of using the excuse “I don’t have the time”.
I’ll give stats and new weight on Friday.
Still haven’t started my diet or change in eating. I just can’t seem to make the jump. I haven’t stepped on a scale either. I’m kind of scared to. I know I have gained a lot back though, because I just feel so swollen and sore :(.
Maybe I need to change from keto? Or maybe not be so hard on myself? Is there anything that y’all do to stay on track?
P.S. I notice my blog reflects when I am on my diet and when i’m off. When im off, I post so much non-weightloss related stuff :/. I need to stop that.
I wish I could diet normally and see results, because sometimes keto sucks so much. In keto, when you take a cheat you feel crappy, you gain about 2-3 lbs in water weight, and you have to use extra days to get back in keto.
Sometimes, I wish I could just have a fast food meal and then move on, but with keto is this whole elaborate process :/.
Nothing like going to the mall to motivate myself back into dieting. Restarting keto tomorrow. It needs to be done. I haven’t completely strayed from keto, but i definitely haven’t been as strict as I should’ve been. Anywho, 3/15 will be day 1 again.
I don’t understand people who feel good after working out? Like I want to punch someone when I’m done. I don’t want anyone to talk to me. I just want to sleep or relax.
Is there some secret to it? Or like do I have to trick myself into being happy about it…..
Pretty sure I haven’t worked out in over a week…… and yet I feel like I have really bad shin splints. Is there a reason for that or do I need to hit up the hospital?
I wish I didn’t have PCOS, so I can just diet like a normal person. Today I planned on making a low-carb stroganoff and it came out higher in carbs than I wanted it to. The problem is I found this out as I was shopping for the food to make. I ended up aimlessly walking around the store for an hour trying to think of a different dinner I could make without going carb crazy :/. I hate this so much.
The only plus is that tomorrow I start upping my metformin to two a day instead of one.
P.S. I also found out I am only 4 lbs lighter than my dad…. My dad is like 6’1” so…. that happened.
Shoutout to all the dudes and dudettes who worked out today :D. Great job! Serious guys <3 Awesome.
I am almost coming to a close of my third day. Got some chicken thighs baking in the oven. I think I may have gone over my carb allowance though :/ not by much ( like 5), but still……
Although, feeling good :). I haven’t had any bread, pasta, carby fruits/vegetables, or anything. The most carbs I have had have come from green vegetables like kale, lettuce, cucumbers, etc :).
