Weight – Keto & Quarantine

For a while there due to all the panic shopping I was unable to get enough of the things that are “keto friendly” to sustain my diet. Which meant I gained back 19 of the over 20 pounds I lost eating delicious carbs and comfort food because, stress.

Now that meat is more plentiful and I found a site my sister-in-law recommended that you can shop for specific diets (including keto) I am back on the keto wagon. Though I did mess up and have a cookie without thinking at a social distancing Mother’s Day celebration with family yesterday that really upset me because my day 1 on Saturday I was so proud of myself, I didn’t feel like I was starving and I drank at least 128 ounces of water. I was rocking it, no toast thank you, no Oreos or anything else.

So today, I start day one over AGAIN. 🙁 so far so good and thankfully I’m down 4 pounds of water weight due to all the water I’m drinking. If you fell off the wagon because of social isolation or any other reason, hang in there. If I can do it so can you, believe me, I’m a stress eater and right now my anxiety level is higher than it’s ever been.

I’ll try to post a little more regularly now, I have been feeling super great because the stress is flaring my MS like crazy. Hang in there!
