I know that sometimes I write far and in between, but I am still here and I'm still doing this "Keto thing". It has become a normal and regular part of our lives. My husband and I are both fully committed to this lifestyle of low carb, high fat, intermittent fasting lifestyle. Fasting more than … Continue reading I’m Still Here!

Traveling in England
What an amazing trip. A trip of a lifetime. My husband and I just finished our 10-day trip in England - a first stamp in our Passports. We actually did really well, Keto-wise. We started each day with a cup of coffee, rarely had lunch, began a new tradition of daily afternoon teas, and finished … Continue reading Traveling in England
Fasting is the Key
That's right. Fasting is the key, especially when you want to break a stall. I'm a full believer that not every fasting plan is right for everyone. You have to find what works best for your body and metabolism. I have found that weight loss happens for me only when I go to 42 hours. … Continue reading Fasting is the Key
Fasting Through Frustration
I know. It's been a little while since I've posted, but I want to reassure you (and myself) that I haven't given up. I'm still pushing through. I'm just frustrated. I'm still in the 230s! I briefly broke into the 220s, but I didn't stay there. Yes, sometimes I wonder why I keep going with … Continue reading Fasting Through Frustration
The Egg Fast
Something I have learned on this journey so far: Keep things interesting - change things up. Anyone doing this for the long haul knows that stalls are extremely annoying, but part of the game. Most of the time, I'll see a stall on the scale, but can still feel the inches going down. I try … Continue reading The Egg Fast
Get Some Sleep!
Correction. Get a LOT of sleep. At least 8-9 hours. I've done a blog entry on this before, but as I sit here in the California Sleep Society conference (I'm a registered sleep technologist), I am compelled to write about it again. If you are serious about your health, if you are serious about losing … Continue reading Get Some Sleep!
Through the Wardrobe
The last time I HAD to go shopping for a dress was about ten years ago. And yes, I said "HAD" because I have always been known to hate to shop for clothes for myself. But we had a wedding to go and it was time to go through the wardrobe. In the past, I … Continue reading Through the Wardrobe
Stalls are Frustrating!
There. I said it. Stalls are extremely frustrating. You may have noticed that I haven't posted for a while. That's because nothing has been happening. I've been stuck in the 230s for a while now. The measurements have not moved that much either. I'm sure there are people who would give up at this point. … Continue reading Stalls are Frustrating!
Camping on Keto
I was nervous to go on vacation right after my successes in weight loss during the 42-hour Fasting Challenge, but I also was excited to tackle a new challenge - going camping while doing Keto. At first, every camping meal I could remember doing in the past had some type of carb/starch involved - potatoes, … Continue reading Camping on Keto
42-Hour Fast Challenge: Accepted!
My weight has been bouncing in between 234 and 240 for the last two months. My fasting protocol had been 24-hours, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. My morning blood sugars (levels are always higher in the morning and they are fasting levels) have come down to the 140s and 130s. Back in September they were in … Continue reading 42-Hour Fast Challenge: Accepted!
