This post has no title...

Hey There! Thanks for stopping by. 

I'm currently at the Library again, waiting out VBS that my kids attend, since my house and the Church are not close together. 

I just finished the 5 day egg fast from "I breathe I'm hungry"'s website. Today was day one of transition back into Keto. I was sure glad to eat some meat for dinner! I can't wait to tell you about my success on it! I hit one of my top three goals!

Why I chose Keto?
I actually really can't remember the exact reason. I had heard some Chatter on FB about it from a few freinds of mine, and then you know the FB algorithims...KETO stuff kept popping up everywhere, so I read it, and thought hmm, this looks doable!

I never last more than two weeks on a diet or once I lose about 10 pounds I quit for some reason or another. 

I did some research, wrote down everything I learned, Found recipes, found support groups, and went for it. I made a grocery list, I meal planned, I shopped...

The first week I lost EIGHT pounds. Good! Probably water weight. The next two months were slow going but the scale moved ever so slowly downward. I never gave up. If I craved something I looked for an alternative, OR I had just one tiny bite of said craving. One time I over Indulged on a funnel cake from the local Fair. It was bad! But it lived up to its name, "Death by Chocolate"!!! By that time I had probably been on the KETO way of eating for a good month and half, well into it, probably in ketosis, though I have not once ever tested to see, it wasn't my main objective for this way of life. So the funnel cake really messed with me. The stuff I have eliminated from my diet, thats all it was made of, flour, sugar, more sugar, chocolate, even more sugar. It messed with my tummy for a good three days!

It was then that I knew I was going down the right path.
