Hi there! Welcome to my food, fitness & lifestyle blog! I started this blog to share tips on a low carb lifestyle & staying fit and healthy.
My Ups & Downs in a Healthy Lifestyle
A little background on me. I am 32 years old and have struggled with my weight my whole life. I was never athletic or naturally thin or health conscience. I always ate a little too much and stayed inside reading a little too much.
I can remember as early as kindergarten being teased for my weight. I can vividly recall times of being called too fat, gross, and my favorite catcall of ‘whale’ as I stepped up to the diving board at a swimming pool.
I can remember as early as kindergarten hating the way I looked. Wanting to destroy pictures I was in, unable to look at myself in the mirror, or being filled with shame when I needed to ask my mom to buy a bigger jean size were everyday struggles.
By the time I reached high school I was 6 feet tall and over 220 pounds. I can’t remember the exact number; I’m sure I’ve blocked it out by now. With impending college life and prom just around the corner, I knew I needed a change. The only problem was that I was uneducated on nutrition. For the next 8 years I tried every diet and diet food out. I lost 40 lbs, gained 15 back. I lost 55 pounds, gained 25 back. It was a vicious cycle and ended up with me being back at 204 pounds on the eve of 2012. I was in bed, sick, and depressed. I knew there had to be a better way so I began to research proper nutrition and not just believe what every girl is taught – eat less, get skinny, be happy.
I found Keto and my life changed. I was able to lose weight and keep it off. Bloating was gone and I wasn’t starving, I was actually enjoying this new lifestyle. I also customized Keto to me, which was so easy to do! I cut down on dairy and made sure I was getting 25-30 grams of fiber a day from veggies and seeds. Though I’m not a professional, this way of life has saved me and I don’t think I could ever go back to eating or living the way I was.
