Lots of thought going on this week...

Am I capable of KETO?
Am I just completely undisciplined?
Does emotional eating ever end?
What will it take for me to get it together!! UGH!!!

It is difficult for me to stomach another failure when it comes to my weight, my eating, etc., etc., etc.

I know I shouldn't be defined by the number on the scale. I get lifestyle change takes time and comes with ups, downs, and all arounds. I get it. Believe you me, I get it. I have made multiple bonafide attempts to be healthier, lose weight, etc. I'm pretty sure I have one more attempt in me, but I need a minute of angst.

    I agree with NIGHTSKYSTAR.

    Eat Keto for 3 weeks (no scale) and see how you feel. Take note of these things:
    - true hunger level
    - energy levels (less sleepy in the afternoon... or ...)
    - clothes fitting looser

    The number on the scale is just a number. Your health is a lot harder to measure, but you feel it.

    ok so first..throw out the scale. seriously. keto isnt magic. you have to work it. and its all or nothing. and even those that do that...keep their calories and fat high, carbs under 20 total, protein moderate, some dont lose fast. but if they pay attention to their clothing..i have a friend that was lamenting about 'only" losing 2 pounds in a month...i met her for lunch, and was shocked..her pants were falling off..her shirt baggy....i said have you not noticed your clothes? turns out she may "only" have lost 2 pounds, but she went down FOUR clothing sizes.
    The scale is not a good tool to use. the number means seriously nothing. its how you feel, and the progress you are making in your health.
    i used to be concerned with the scale. best thing i ever did was hide it for a month. totally gone. i ate what i knew was fine and on my plan, and i lost 2 clothing sizes. when i did get weighed again, the number no longer mattered to me.
    i'm normal size now.----but my weight is way over what any chart says i should be. My doc could care less about the number...what she cares about is my bloodwork is perfect. i'm a normal size for the first time in my life. i'm healthier than i've ever been...THATS what you need to consider, not a number on the scale.
