I didn’t really say anything on here, but I told co-workers. I just wasn’t ready to go crazy with this until I was sure it was working. I’ve lost 40 pounds doing the Keto Diet. To be specific, Cyclical Keto. Where I give myself 1 cheat day or in my case, one cheat meal per week.
I started this diet on June 15 and as of today have lost a total of 40 pounds. I should be more excited as this is fairly substantial. I’m not too excited as I let things get out of control for a while.
A few years back when I was doing daily walks, I had lost 50 pounds in total. I weighed 310 pounds. That’s when I had my first heart attack. It took me nearly a year to lose those 50 pounds. I’ve damn near done that in just 3 months this time around.
The problem I have is that after my heart attacks (3) in 2012, I could hardly walk to the end of the drive way and back (like a 10th of a mile long driveway). It took weeks to get to walk normal distances again. I still can’t lift a whole lot for whatever reason. Plus, now my right knee is damaged and won’t be repaired until I lose more weight.
I’m getting close to the weight were I collapsed with a heart attack and oddly I’m scared that it will happen again. I realize it shouldn’t matter this time as I have my stents and the doctor says I’m actually in pretty good condition despite my weight. (unlike my doctor who swore I would be dead in two years) 😡 I guess he was trying to motivate me. I took it literally and basically accepted it as fact. The whole reason I quit my work from home job is from guilt of not dying and he was paying good money for me to work in a different state. Jason is an amazing person, I’ll always be thankful for what he’s done for me. I just didn’t want to keep taking advantage if I wasn’t holding up my end of the bargain as it were.
So yeah, I should be more excited about my weight loss. I’m always untrusting and skeptical these days. Hopefully I’m wrong and can lose enough weight in a year to get my knee fixed and live a number of years more.
If I get down far enough, I think I’ll reward myself with a leather jacket. What do you think?
