It’s a Big Day!


It’s my One Year Anniversary on Keto! And what an amazing year it’s been!

Exactly one year ago today I started this journey and NEVER did I think a year later I’d be here where I am. 80 pounds gone.  Stepped on the scale this morning for the first time in ages and BOOM. There it was. -80

Whenever someone asks me what the most important thing is in the beginning – I always say “take before pictures”.  I tell everyone this because I didn’t.  I have very few full length photos of myself from the beginning and the few photos I do have are ones that I had to take 25 different takes to find one I even liked!

But there is one picture from a year ago that I have.  Our oldest daughter surprised me with tickets to see Guns ‘n Roses last year. August 13th, 2017 to be exact.  I was SO excited for this concert…a definite bucket list item!

I had been looking into keto for a few weeks and was contemplating starting soon. Then I took this picture with my beautiful daughter and “that moment” hit me.

That moment

That moment.  That single moment that something clicks and you decide to make a change.  I took a great selfie with my daughter and all I could do was pick apart my image. Was my face really that heavy? Was I just puffy from the extreme heat? What the heck happened?

Whatever it was- this picture kicked my butt into gear and sitting at that concert, I made the decision to start the very next day.

And I started… And I haven’t looked back.

One year compare

One year.  80 pounds gone for good.

I used to cringe taking photos. Now I enjoy it and actually encourage it!

It just takes that one moment. I’m not trying to sign you up for something… I’m not trying to sell you something.  I’m just a girl sharing my journey with you and letting you know it’s okay.  Your moment is out there waiting.  You’ll know it and everything just clicks.  If you got to my blog- maybe you’ve already had your moment…or maybe it’ll take that selfie to kick it into gear.

Just know you’re not alone.  If I can do this… so can you.
