Start Weight:(07 Apr 16) 207.0 lb
Current Weight:(14 Oct 16) 172.6 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: LCHF: Low carb, High fat / Ketogenic Diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

I am simple woman with goals and life expectations of living and let live walking to my own drumbeat. I love life for what it offers each and everyday. One of my passions is hand quilting. I love each and every step of the process of a beautiful quilt. I love quiet walks, savouring the moments that life gives us.

I have tried many different diet plans. After a long struggle of finding the right one. I believe I have finally found the one that works for me.
I follow basically a Ketogenic diet with about 3 carb cycle days each month. Since I have started this back on January 4th of 2016. I weighed in on that day at 233.4. I went off plan during the Month of March due to traveling and having one family emergency after another. Today I weighed in at 205.8. I think for each one of us we have to find what works for our own bodies.
We have to stick to whatever clean eating is for us. I also think we have to remember it didn't take us a day,week or a month to gain the weight we gained, it won't come off easily nor will it come off fast.
One of the hardest things I have learned through this process is that I am loveable no matter what size I am or will be. That has taken me almost 56 years to learn. Now that I like me I know I can achieve whatever I set out to do.
Peace to whomever reads this...

I started with Atkins and when they started advocating all the processed foods, their shakes, and candies I went more into LCHF. I will agree most "diets" will work if you follow it to a tee. I love the LCHF lifestyle since I can eat bacon, eggs, cheese, still have cream in my coffee etc which are foods I found I would sneak in and honestly I am carb sensitive.
I also stay under 1200 unless doing a carb reload day and then never over 1400. Good luck I am sure you will find all kinds of buddies out here.

I have to say you have been given a lot of great advice. Since I have yo-yo on several so called diets in the last 3 years.. A diet won't really make a difference in the long run..
You have to decide this is going to be a life change and stick with it. I do HFLC and have done it since September dedicated and I have totally cut out glutens, and processed sugars..There is no going back for me.. I started last March at 223.. I now am 157.8... I work out regularly this isn't a diet this is a life style change... Only you can decided when enough is enough... Then you will successfully loose the weight, keep it off and get healthy. Best wishes...
