I started being more health conscience around April 15th, just after my 40th birthday. I was at my heaviest weight ever and SOMETHING had to change. I gave Noom a short try and instantly decided it wasn’t for me, and then I decided to do a bit of keto, as much as I could while living in the far North at least. Pictured above is one of my keto friendly snack plates. Yum. I actually enjoy eating most of those things, and variety has been important because I am not really a big meat person, and avocado isn’t a thing here.
I eat a lot of eggs, chicken, beef, fish, shrimp, and the snacks pictured above – I’m 18lbs down. I have a LOT more to go. I plan on doing keto until my cravings subside and I get a handle on my portion sizes, then I’m going to slowly transition to more manageable meals, hopefully still keeping the portions down. Once I lose a bit of weight I’m going to add exercise into the equation, but I’m in no rush on that since I have to take things easy in that regard. In any case, I’m happy with the progress, and I am feeling pretty good about things.
