Hi everyone! We're Adam and Kristin, newlyweds jumping back on the keto bandwagon. We had seen success in the past on keto, but sometimes the allure of potatoes and craft beer would get the best of us. Since it's full steam ahead to turning 30 for Kristin and we want to kick off married life in better health, here we are! Follow along through our ups and downs (and attempts to drink beer in moderation.)
It used to make me feel some type of way whenever I order food and exclude certain items and I would get a funny look. Now I use it as an opportunity to share information on why I choose not to eat certain foods.
I was addicted to bread 🍞. Like most days I could not go without at least having toast, but of course you never could just have ONE... who does that?!! I am so thankful to be able to look at foods and not feel some type of obligation to eat things I don't want/need. It took a lot of discipline to stay away from sugar, bread, processed foods for a month, but man o man... I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!!!! Do not continue thinking you "have" to eat certain things or feel ashamed for asking for modifications for your food. ----------------------------------------------------------
I took “beginning” measurements today (even though I started two weeks ago). Guess I gotta do some “before” pictures huh? Here ya go: my progress gauging outfit includes this pair of jeans. I hate jeans or pants with a real waistband because they cut directly into my biggest problem area: my gut. The physical changes I am looking to see over the next few months include decreasing that “belted balloon” look at the waist of real pants as seen in the angled view (tires above and below). I also would love to see a decrease in my double chin. It’s there when I smile and pincheable when I exaggerate it. I make a lot of faces throughout the day so a decrease in that area would make me happy. I’ll do another round of pictures and measurements in... two months? 😜 #ketojourney#keto#beforeandafter#weightlossjourney
