Two years and five months ago I made a horrible decision that changed my life. I had broken my leg (badly) and was non weight bearing for 3 months (felt like an eternity). During the first three months I gained 40 pounds on top of the 60 I already needed to lose. During the 3 months I had a great cook (my mother in law) and ate 3 meals plus desert and I couldn’t move to burn any of it off. When I finally was told to put weight on my leg I was physically hurting all over. I was thinking I’ll lose some of it in Physical Therapy (NOT)! My eating habits were out of control and I was not liking myself. I would go to the drive through just because it was easy and that meant I wasn’t cooking. As I rounded the two year mark of my broken leg and almost 41 years old I thought to myself “You wanted to quit smoking and be healthy by 40”. Here I was almost 41 and a non smoker but extremely over weight. I could not exercise because I could not breathe.
My life style change started November 11, 2017 with Fit2Fat2Fit Keto. I am proud to say the 40 + pounds are gone!!! I am also down 2 shirt sizes and 1 pant size! Since November I have increased my walking speed from 1.5mph to 3.0mph. I used to focus on how far I had to go and now I focus on how far I have come! If I feel like giving up or throwing in the towel I remember my why. I also meal prep and plan ahead so I am prepared! Loving myself more everyday and this life style change!!
