4/01/19 - Had a fall and a brain injury on 11/06/17, slow recovery and massive weight regain. Now at 243!
I have been overweight most of my life. Now 64.5 yrs old. This weight loss has not been a rapid process. My highest weight was 280, which I hit twice, the last time about 5 years ago. I discovered I do much better physically and emotionally without gluten, so getting rid of that turned around the bad times for me (depression and weight gain). Eventually, I was diagnosed with Celiac after a genetic test. My success here has been a combination of the great community support, and the tracking of food and activity. I've been eating low carb for a long time, but the tools here allow me to do it more accountably. Also, many of the keto resources say that calories don't matter, but I do better when I also restrict calories. I'm aiming for about 1600 kcal/day. The high fat allows me to cut cravings and control my eating. We always wish the losses could be faster, but I am so happy to be moving in the right direction! I have a lot more to lose, but I feel optimistic and increasingly healthy. Aiming for about 155.

I'm following a Low Carb/High Fat diet that works well for me; with some days of intermittent fasting.

Still doing HFLC/keto. When I stick to it, it works.
The picture if from the women's march on inauguration weekend.

Love to you all, you make this journey fun and I really appreciate your support!

I'm 5'6.5" and large framed. As of 5/1/19: 48" bust/ 39.5"waist/ 48"hips
