Diet struggles

My weight loss has been stalled. I'm not sure what it is. I recently went on a trip with the Brookdale residents to the local Walmart. I pushed this older lady around in a wheelchair around the store. She was looking for this certain type of pastry. As I was helping her I saw all the food I usually stay away from at the store. The bread, pastries, fruit, cookies, and crackers. It has been 7 months since I had that food and it's sad but I wanted it even though I know that my body can't handle it. Anyway, after I finished volunteering I went to the store and bought a ton of junk food that I haven't eaten in a long time. Let's just say I cheated on my diet and it seems like I have been cheating a lot. I feel like I don't have will power like I did in the beginning. I want to continue back on the keto path but I need inspiration, motivation, something and I'm not sure what it is. I plan to do some food prep today so that I can just take my lunch and go to work.

My job is going well. School is also going well.

Amazing Changes

I am so proud of myself! I am really suprise how well I have stuck with this diet, leanred so much about it and now am sharing my experience with it to others. I had my 6 month check-up with my doctor today. I have revered my diabeties. My ANA (which is autoaminue disease marker) was borderline negative/positive. And now it is negative! My CRP (which is a inflamatory marker) went down to 4.9 from 19.1.My cortisol is coming down nicely. My insulin is Amazing, starting at 165 and now is at optimum 8.5. My iodine is a little sluggish (back on supplements). I will also be taking B12 shots to see if that can help me with weight loss. My vitamin D still low but improved. My platelets, C02, and glucose are all normal.

It really is crazy how I changed these number in a little over 6 months. I feel better and energized. Doctor says I can play with the diet to see what I can handle. She said free to go off keto if I feel like it, maybe start a paleo/Mediterranean. But before I do that she wants me to do her metabolic diet for 7 days. I basically shakes up your metabolism and lets your body keep guessing. So I might try it next week.

Wiehgt plateu again...

I have been stuck between 174-178 for about a month now maybe longer. My last weigh in I was 176 but I had lost 5 inches throughout my whole body. I'm not sure if it is muscle. I only did one full session this week and 2 yoga sessions.  plan to go back full hard core this week with 3 full sessions. I start my new jobs soon. Next Monday. My schedule is going to vary (3-4days a week 7am-11am) with the exception of my working one of those days from (2:30am-7am) and being on call as needed but not required. (one day a week probably.)   I am still doing my classes Monday through Thursday from 3pm-6pm. And working at Kindred on the weekends. I'm ready to be mega bissy!
