The Last High Carb Supper

Time to get serious! I weighed myself this morning and put on 4 more pounds. As of this morning, I'm at 272 pounds. I got most of the high carb food out of the house. I decided to eat more than just the fruit though. I cheated during the NFL playoff games and drank an abundance of alcohol and a few slices of pizza. So much for only eating the healthy carbohydrates in the house.

So last night I enjoyed my last high carb supper. I will not be eating like this again for a while so I enjoyed myself immensely!

So good. Pot roast drowned in gravy. A roasted russet potato with butter and drenched in sour cream. Acorn squash filled with melted butter. Yes, I enjoyed this immensely. Funny how we take carbs for granted till we deprive ourselves of them! 

Time to return to intermittent fasting and hardcore dieting. The goal is to lose 72 pounds in 2019! I'd like to achieve this by June. That's pretty hardcore though, so if I end the year 72 pounds lighter I'll be a happy man!

I cheated hard since Christmas intentionally. I've heard stories that you put on the weight as fast as you lose it with keto. Considering how I cheated over the holidays, I think that there is probably some truth to that.  Once I get this weight off I'm going to ease out of the diet, with a strict regiment of healthy eating.  I'm looking forward to seeing how well I maintain my weight loss. One day at a time though. First I have to lose the weight :)

Started fasting last night at 12 midnight. I broke fast today with 2 tablespoons of almond butter. First fast was 19 hours. I'm going to try and go a few days now on only saltwater. I'll post a saltwater recipe tomorrow. I'm going to try and get into a state of ketosis as quick as possible. 

Deep breathe! Here we go again! Time to lose this weight and get thin... Wish me luck :)
