Journey

Seems like yesterday. 

This time last year I weighed  5 under 300 pounds. Today, 183. I reached my original weight loss goal 7 pounds ago, and am so close to reaching the new goal of 175 I can taste it.

Taste I do, I love the Ketogenic diet.
I hate calling it a diet, because of the implication that I am somehow denying myself the pleasure of food; I’m not, just ask my husband. It really isn’t a “diet” in that sense of the word. It is just a different way of looking at nutrition and enjoying delicious food. True, I do count calories and maintain a deficit, but that is because I am trying to lose weight. I could, and many do, eat ketogenically and maintain current weight, or even gain weight.

Now,  as far as the loose skin curtain that hang from my abdomen…Disgusting word picture isn’t it?  It is an even more horrifying sight; I won’t post any pics -You’re welcome. Outside of plastic surgery, I’m not sure what I can do about it. I’ve been doing planks, and crunches, and even this strange exercise where I blow all the air I can from my lungs thus tightnining my abdominal muscles.   I do feel a difference, but don’t yet see it; patience is a virtue and luckily I possess loads of it.

If I have accomplished that much in a year, it makes me wonder what I can accomplish this year. Time will tell.
