I didn’t think I’d ever write a post with the title I Finally Lost Weight. No chance. I like pie. I like bread. I like thinking leggings and big shirts camouflage my belly.
I’ve written a bunch of posts (and a book) about how I lost weight. Every time I share my story I know some people think that it’s cool I lost 35 pounds, but there must be something special about my willpower to have accomplished it.
(PS: It’s actually 45 pounds now, and not for nothing, my husband lost 100.)
Here’s what’s special about my willpower. I was born without any. True story.
If you do a brain scan right now, you will see that the part of the brain that prevents humans from shoving their faces into tubs of frosting isn’t there. I should be studied.
Here’s a quick before and after…
This Is How I Lost Weight
I’m afraid to tell you. I’m afraid when I say the word you’re going to throw your phone across the room and swear at your dog. By now you’ve heard it over and over again and it’s probably starting to sound like it’s a cult.
Brace yourself. Send your dog out of the room.
I know, I know. Everyone is talking about it and even though they may have lost weight, it won’t be the same for you. Right?
I said the same.
I’m a Southern, middle-aged woman who grew up on biscuits, Karo syrup as a condiment, and the firm belief that people who drank unsweetened tea didn’t know Jesus.
Look, these days I often feel like a Keto crusader. It’s been one of the kindest things I’ve ever done for myself. I never stop being surprised at how my body has changed and I want everyone else to have that same feeling.
I want YOU to know what it feels like to be good to yourself and lose weight – if you want to.
When people refer to anything as life-changing, I’m always suspicious. But that’s what it’s been for me. That’s what it continues to be for me. (My husband, too.)
No, it’s not Atkins. It’s about eating healthy fats, and only moderate protein. Yes, you say goodbye to a lot of carbs.
For the first two weeks of Keto, I would have paid a Navy Seal to knock my husband unconscious and deliver a donut to me. #truth
Now, I’m so glad a Navy seal did not answer my Craigslist ad.
I wrote a book explaining exactly what I did, what I did not do, the foods I ate, and the things I’ve learned to make it easier to succeed.
It’s not 800 pages long, and it’s not about the science of why Keto works. It’s my story, and based on all the people who’ve read it and contacted me with their results, I know it can be your story.
You can get it here, and be on the train to skinny town by tomorrow morning.
It’s less than $5. I’ve spent that much on a tub of frosting and a box of Kleenex to dry my “WHY DID I JUST EAT AN ENTIRE TUB OF FROSTING” tears.
