It’s hard to believe that I am two months into this thing. This past month has gone by quite fast to be honest. My weight loss has slowed down which was kind of expected. But, overall I am close to losing 30lbs — which was my overall goal for the whole three months.
So, though I only lost about 5-6lbs., I am still ahead of my projections — and I am losing inches at the same time. So I am still progressing — which I need to remember. The number on the scale is just part of the equation on the affect this diet has had on my health.
I am still tweaking my thyroid medication, but I feel a difference following a keto diet. Especially the past couple of weeks since I switched my thyroid medication dosage. So I am very optimistic.
Looking forward to the next month, I’d like to lose more than just 6lbs. I feel like I can do more — I’d really love to see 10-15lbs. if my body is up to it. I mean, it’s not like there isn’t fat there to lose. I would love to be close to 240-245 by next month.
Besides just keeping doing what I am doing — I think there’s a few other things I can do to get there. Beside watching my macros closer, I really should watch my dairy intake a bit more. Being lactose intolerant is probably not helping me much. Almond milk and alternative cheese should be more prevalent in my diet.
But, I won’t lie, cheese is a much more enjoyable fat to add to meals compared to olive oil. But, yeah, I need to slowly breakup with it.
I also need add a bit more intensity to my runs. I am working with my coach, not to necessarily make me faster, but to work on my endurance for my 100 mile run in February. But, if I can up my intensity a bit during my week day runs, I know I can burn some more fat along the way.
The changes aren’t huge, but little tweaks that can hopefully help me break through this plateau. And, I can’t let myself be too overwhelmed with the non-progress on the scale, because I am progressing. I just have to remember that.
But, here’s to the last month — and to 240!
