When I started Lowcarbing I weighed 204lbs (give or take). At 5’7” that made me clinically obese. To be honest, I never looked that big, never felt that big. But I knew I was horribly out of shape and wasn’t enjoying life to the fullest. So in came the Low Carb Lifestyle!
Over the next month of being on low carb (two weeks strict induction then slowing adding more quality carbs) I started loosing weight, quickly! By the end of the first month I was down to ~190lbs. By the end of month two, I was about 185lbs. However, that is where I have stayed for the past 1.5-2 months. It is a little frustrating, but I know I’ve started eating slightly more carbs (some fruit, dairy, nuts, beans). However I was keeping in ketosis.
This past weekend was my 35th birthday, and boy did I celebrate. For three days I partied hard and went out to dinner with friends and basically “Carbed-out”. LOL. I didn’t go too overboard, but I was well above 50-100g of carbs I’m sure (although I rarely count my carbs).
This past Monday, the day I started this blog, I went back to near induction levels. As of Wednesday I was back in ketosis. Today (Thursday) I was back down to 183lbs! Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. But I was happy!
