2 Month Progress

I made a choice at the end of 2014 to make a difference in my life in 2015. Like most people, this silly resolution appeared to be nothing more than a false promise. A false promise that I, like so many others, have made over and over in the years I’ve spent on this earth.

At the start of 2015, I made a small step toward this resolution. A simple cut down on some of the foods eaten. A simple cut in portion size. A few little steps to get me started. It worked, for a very, VERY short while. And then, I found an excuse or two to give in to some of my temptations: cookies, ice cream, yummy yummy in my tummy.

Then, after my birthday, and with a little inspiration from Mr. H, I decided it was time to put my big girl pants on and really get with the program. In April, I started my journey back on the road to a healthier me with Keto. You may remember I posted about the actual diet a few weeks ago.

I feel it is important to leave reminders every so often of just how far you’ve come when taking these kinds of changes on for you life. It is why I feel the need, today, to chronicle my progress at two months. First, I have made it two months. It’s had some hiccups. I’ve cheated a little on the diet. (Hey, I’m only human!) Second, as of Wednesday (my 2 month “get healthier” change anniversary,) I am officially down 17 out of the 40 pounds I intend to lose.

I know, you’re probably thinking, holy cow, 17 pounds in two months. Isn’t that a lot to lose in two months? Well, yes, and no. I had gotten down to my pre-baby weight. Everything over that was just lazy weight. I got lazy. And now it really is time to change. I’m making that change. I’m almost to my half way point, which also happens to be the end of the lazy weight. After the lazy weight is gone, it’s pure motivation to get down to a great place.

  1. I was just thinking about this the other night! My kids definitely motivate me to get healthy. I think about all the awesome things I want to do with them (hikes, camping, traveling, etc.) but I know I need to be healthy to have a good time and to not slow them down (my mother is obese and I remember not being able to do much with her growing up… my dad and I were very outdoorsy but she just couldn’t keep up).

    I also want my children to be the best that they can be, whether it be physically, intellectually, emotionally, etc. If I am eating what I should be eating then they are more likely to catch on and do the same (which they have).

    1. I love that notion to eat what you want your kids to eat. I think it’s one of the best things we can do for them.

      I also suffer from a family history of overweight women, most on the obese side. I’m trying to avoid that problem that happens in my family, especially for my child as I see all the energy I’m going to need just to keep up with him!
