I Can Honestly Say I’m Proud Of Myself!
You know I can honestly say that I am proud of myself! I can’t say that I can say that often about something that think is so important. I mean I am proud of myself because I was strong enough to keep my son home from school and we use computer classes and yes I do help with some stuff, even if I have to do a little reading first myself. I am proud that he can read better than most kids his age as far as words that an average 11 year old wouldn’t really use. My son is my first and in my honest opinion has been the best thing in my life! Even though I was huge and felt like a worthless piece of shit. I know that’s a horrible thing to say right, I am not worthless and I’m not a piece of shit. However when you can’t do nothing any more because you’re so fat, you can’t help but to feel more like a burden than a mom or wife. I did, I really felt like they would probably be better off without me sometimes, not that I meant like doing self harm, cause I couldn’t do that either! LOL I just sucked at life in general. I just want you to understand how I FELT (past-tense). I would wake up and wish I could just sleep for f**king ever and not have to deal with nothing and I would feel so horrible when I couldn’t do simple things, like dishes without pulling up a chair. I couldn’t vacuum without sitting down every few minutes, I was honestly broken and at my wits end. I didn’t know how to do this anymore.
There is that one person who knows though, well there are a lot of people who know. That one person who triggered something in me to change! She is so awesome and she shares things to help everyone she can. I’m so grateful for her and to be her friend. My whole family know her by name cause what she says goes! LOL Once I started this new way of life, it completely changed me inside and out! All the High Blood Pressure GONE! My GERD is GONE! I Can Walk, I can move I feel sporty almost LOL when I walk and move, like I should be moving faster. I feel SO GOOD! I don’t wake up and wish I could sleep, I force myself to have a complete 8 hours of sleep and honestly that’s the perfect amount of time! I awake feeling Great! Everyone else seems to get sick around me and I don’t! What’s up with that? lol Dunno, but cool! I owe it all to that person and myself of course for doing it and sticking to it. This is the only thing I have ever done and was able to really stick to in my life! I have been overweight since puberty and 200 + lbs by 18 years old. It never changed, I remember saying “I’ll never get to 300 lbs” but I just kept growing. Low fat, low cal is a lie!
Most of us who are big like I was and I still am big but I’m shrinking and dropped 8 ounces since last weigh in and I’m 255 lbs even! But most of us have a metabolic disorder we just don’t know it and we keep eating the carbs. In January 2014 I thought a lot about becoming diabetic and it was something probably going to happen to me. I don’t want that! Not for myself or my son, my grandma was a diabetic. I weighed in January 2014 around 370 lbs! Eeeek! That’s a scary number let me tell you! I pondered and finally in April cut that sugar out of my diet completely! In June I started #LCHF and I weighed 330.6 lbs. Really I have lost around 115 lbs altogether, but I don’t mention that other amount before 330.6 lbs because that happened just from quitting sugar alone, from April till June 23 2014 when I started #LCHF. So I lost roughly 40 lbs just from cutting out sugar from my life! That’s Freaking Amazing!
I have lost in total now from #LCHF 75.6 lbs exactly as of today! I also got my sister finally to follow it and in the past 5 days she has went from 219 lbs to 210.6 lbs! She’s stoked and excited, but also has the induction flu. I feel bad she is feeling bad, but it will pass soon for her and she will be full of energy and her house will be spotless and she’ll not know what to do with herself. I honestly felt like I needed to find me a job! lol I’m to bored with all this energy! I hope everyone success on their journey and continue forward, it’s a long haul but in the long run, it’s so worth it!
Remember Don’t let anyone bring you down or tell you otherwise, YOU CAN DO THIS!
I have had a lot of people who think they know it all try to tell me not to do this, I’m going to ruin my body and kill myself. It’s the most asinine thing I have ever heard, I had people tell me I was going to get Ketoacidosis from Ketosis LMFAO! Really? Nutritional Ketosis is a very normal and good thing! I mean really it is!
Think about this diet like this. Before man grew veggies he was what? PRIMAL! He ate what? Meat and probably berries and fruit, probably only when hungry. When we go camping and we pick a Primitive camping spot that means we want to rough it like they would back in a more Primal time! Am I wrong? NOPE! Eating this way is no different. You have to stop and think about it like this. Before we could go the grocery store and shop for everything under the freaking sun, we had to hunt and catch our food, we didn’t eat carbs, if so it wasn’t like people eat them today! That’s the problem, honestly I blame the government for approving so much garbage and then they say our kids and we are fat. It’s all about profit, that’s why most doctors wont promote or approve of a diet like this. Mainly cause they’re ignorant and too closed minded to accept they could have been taught wrong all along. What I say, “to me” it makes total sense! Back to the Basics!
