I was always slender growing up. Teens thru the twenties 5'8.5" 115 lbs. Went up to 135 in my 30's. Stayed at that weight until I quit smoking in 1995 I than gained 50 lbs in 4 months (185 lbs). A friend swore I was pregnant so I looked in the mirror and started watching what I ate for awhile. I had a job where I pretty much walked about 10 miles a day. I was able to get down to 150 lbs and nothing below that. I started smoking again after three years. Stayed at 150 lbs until I hit my 50's. I have a desk job now and have slowly went up to 175 lbs over 3 years holding at that. Quit smoking again May 2016 weight still at 175 lbs. Watched what I ate for a couple months, no weight gain UNTIL Dec 2016 I started gaining about 1.5 lbs a week and in May 2017 5'7" (lost an inch and a half somewhere along the lines) and weighing in at 209 lbs my journey begins.

I started Keto and moved into more of a LC with a moderate to high fat WOE. I am happy with my 1 to 3 lbs a month loss. I have played around with my carbs and when I decide to go into Ketosis I can eat around 65 grams. I have lately tried to lose a couple of pounds and maintain for 2-3 weeks and lose 1-3 pounds and maintain again. I do IF on occasion. I drink rum and soda water with another glass or 2 of water every night. Yes I know I would lose more a week/month if I quit. What really sucks is I donated my smaller clothes a couple months prior to starting my journey.

Update: Sept 25, 2018 Been trying something different over the last week. Trying to get between 85 to 100 grams of protein and 24 g of fiber. Will try to keep carbs under 160 grams preferably lower. I have been eating what is considered junk as well. I'll see what happens.
