So, my month back on low carb has been quite the roller coaster. My weight has gone down and up but is now right where I started! However, my body (girth) is slowly going down. It is quite strange; but, I’ll take it.
I could be more regimented with my diet as far as keeping up with my macros daily. Let’s face it. It’s exhausting. I get so sick of trying to work out figures and math in my head for keeping In the Keto Zone. I have been having a hand at trying to get back in touch with my body intuitively. Actually listening and looking for my hunger/sated signs. I have been so out of touch with that part of my eating which, obviously, has resulted in some serious weight issues (for me). It’s a slow process but a healthier, less obsessive process – actually paying attention to what your body is naturally communicating. I’m having a go at getting back in tune with my body cues. I’m still watching my macros during the week. I’m going to be mindful on the weekends but no counting. I still have not deviated from the types of food that I should eat and still do not plan to.
Enough of that, though. So, here are my Before & Afters and Stats.
As you can read, my weight is the exact same as when I started. Here are my measurement differences:
- Neck 3/4 inch Loss
- Left Upper Arm 1/2 inch Loss
- Right Upper Arm 1/2 inch Loss
- Left Forearm 1/4 inch Loss
- Right Forearm 5/8 inch Loss
- Chest 7/8 inch Loss
- Band 1 1/4 inch Loss
- Waist 1 5/8 inch Loss
- Pooch 1 1/4 inch Loss
- Upper Hip 3/4 inch Loss
- Lower Hip 1 1/4 inch Loss
- Left Thigh 7/8 inch Loss
- Right Thigh 3/4 inch Loss
- Left Calf 1/4 inch Loss
- Right Calf 1/4 inch Loss
My Grand Total inches loss to date is: 11 1/8 inch Loss.
All in all not too shabby with no actualy change in the scale.
Later this week, I’ll post about Intermittent Fasting, a couple of recipes, and whatever else floats my boat.
