Fit by 50 – Week 23 to 25: My Keto Journey…Progress Since the Beginning

Hello everyone! This one will be very brief, as I have some final homework for my last course.  I’m back after some time away, not only from my blog, but from a brief break from Keto. I took some time off two weeks ago to celebrate my better half’s 50th birthday. Then, I was under the weather last weekend. I was briefly kicked out of ketosis, but am clawing my way back. As you might imagine, my progress over the past couple of weeks has been a bit slow. I had a brief weight gain, and actually lost 4.6 pounds in the past week. Unfortunately, 1/3 of a pound of that was lean tissue. I’ve been slack on my HIIT exercising. Since February 14, 2019, I’ve actually lost a pound of lean tissue. This reminded me of the importance of strength bearing exercise, and I’ve reasserted myself in this area.

Here’s where I stand since February 21, 2019

My progress since my Keto journey began on December 31, 2018

To inspire me to continue, I’ve decided to take a look back at where I stand after 9 weeks on the Keto diet. It’s good to look at where I started, to remind myself how far I’ve come in such a short time. It’s proof that it can be done and inspires me to continue. In the past 9 weeks I’ve lost over 20 pounds of fat and 19 inches around my body, including over 5 inches around my waist. My body fat percent has dropped 8 points. Also, despite losing a pound of lean tissue over the past three weeks, I’ve still GAINED 4.28 pounds of lean tissue since December 31, 2018.

Closing thoughts

This look back has been a great reminder and very inspiring. As discouraging as the last few weeks have been, knowing I’ve already come a long way helps tremendously. Going off Keto briefly also reminded me how truly awful I feel when I eat a high carb diet. I feel absolutely amazing on the Keto diet, and will probably continue with it in some respect, even after I reach my goal body fat percentage.

With more than half the year gone, I still have a long way to go. If I’ve made it this far, I can go all the way!

Until next time…Namaste my friends
