Since my miscarriage last August, I’ve been in a downward spiral with my body and my weight. I talked about it more in my first post about why I was starting Keto (read here) so I won’t go into all of it in detail again. But obviously, starting Keto is an act of restoration in my life, specifically when it comes to how I treat my body.
I started Keto on April 16 and I lost 6 lbs my first two weeks (4 week 1; 2 week 2). If I can keep up with 1-2 pounds per week, which is considered healthy weight loss, I’ll be happy.
And I get it… the number on the scale does not define me. BMI is the worst scale to determine someone’s health and I’ll never use it to define how healthy I am (read why here). I truly get that. I do.
For me, it’s about how I feel in my clothes.
It’s about how I physically feel as a 33-year-old woman.
It’s about having the energy to keep up with my active 8-year-old.
It’s about giving my last few “childbearing years” the best chance possible, even when I have PCOS fighting against me.
Keto is a very important attempt to give restoration to my body after everything it has been through. It has been a very rocky 10 years since first being diagnosed with PCOS, and I am so grateful that I’ve been able to have one living child in spite of it all.
Keto = restoration. And I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.
