Happy to share my story!

I am about 20 pounds overweight and had tried Keto in the past. I have not been able to keep it up, not for the lack of trying or willpower, but I was in a job where I just couldn't eat every three hours. Now, I am.

So, last Thursday I visited the local Medical Weight Loss Clinic and I am on Tenuate, Weekly B-12/Lipoden shots and confining my intake to 35 Carbs a day. I haven't gone over at all! Yeah!

This morning, I started with a trainer at Gold's Gym. He and my nurse agreed that on training days I should increase carbs a little, so I can max out at 50 if I have any appetite. Well, to stuff that much food in me at this point, is somewhat difficult, but I'll get there.

Keto Works! #ExerciseEveryDay

So far keto is working for me. I had a stall for a few days but the scale went lower this morning. Yay us!

My weight has plateau'd over the last two days. It's just not moving. Nurse has put me on straight protein for the next five days. Thanksgiving I'm allowed a little vegetables if I'd like. Total loss so far: 7.3 lbs. Since my original post, I've also done five workouts.

Had Training Day #6 today. I started a couple weeks back with 2x a week with trainer and another 2 days on my own. To date, I have lost 11.5 pounds since November 10th. Now starting month #2 with the Weight Loss Center. Still on a Keto Diet, no sugar cravings and eating very healthy. I can actually feel that my stomach is shrinking because it's very hard to eat anything but a smaller portion of everything now. Had some Jello last night, that was really tasty! I have also lost 2 inches around my waist and hips. I am told I am on a very fast track and I'm doing better than most people my age (50). Those words come from both the Weight Loss Nurse and my trainer. I'm motivated to get to 135! 15 more pounds to go!
