51 years old and ready to change a bit, well a lot.

I've ALWAYS been a big guy (graduated in 1984 6'1" and 245#). Until the last few years I really didn't have the belly I do now. It has been expanding a bit and I want to look better and feel better, so off I go.

Starting weight - 350 pounds (May 2017)
First goal-325 pounds. Achieved August 18
Second goal- <300 pounds Achieved October 05
Third goal- 275 pounds Achieved January 17, 2018
Fourth goal - 250
Final weight - ~240 pounds
STRETCH goal - 225 pounds

Im following the LCHF way of eating and thus far it's working well for me, I'm not constantly hungry, and I can really eat a lot of great foods. I also practice the 16/8 fast and that too is working nicely for me.

I'm using the journal as something to assist me in this journey, so if it doesn't seem to make sense to you, that would explain why I'm not a famous author. I also use an iPad, and sometimes it likes to spell for me, so there may be a typo or 6....

Keto Dieters, any out there?
First of all, keep on kicking the big C's butt and kn ow that people are rooting for you!

I'm doing the LCHF diet and thus far it's been working for me quite well. Like you, I am missing my fruit and I am sorely missing my Mexican food fix each Saturday morning at the little taqueria down the road!

Peruse the forum posts and you'll begin to see some folks that are following the LCHF Way Of Eating (WOE). Once you see a few that you are interested in following, click on their user name and select to follow them. THis has helped me a LOT.

Good luck with the diet, and keep up the fight!
