    The best thing about Keto is that it takes hunger away and we eat less. The amount of food we take in is the key to losing weight and if keto helps, then hurrah! Atkins set his Low Carb way of eating up so that people could add back in carbs until they saw a change in weight loss or even a gain. At that point, you would back off some carbs to continue weight loss or continue at that amount for maintenance but not gaining. You are still losing and have lots of energy so right now, you are doing very well. At soem point, you may need to track better and back down a bit, but for now, super job.

    It is good to hear that you are doing everything that you love, even getting back into running.

    Another great week on the scale. My diet has been excellent, 1400 - 1600 calories a day and never hungry. Been really good with water as well.

    My home golf course opened last Wednesday. Though it has been around freezing I've played the 9 hole course 5 times in the last 7 days. At my weight once around is about 1000 calories, it is a hilly course. Still playing floor hockey with friends twice this week as well as several sessions on my rowing machine, another calorie eater. I'm really feeling better at these activities. Amazed what 30lbs off can do. I was doing all of these activities even before changing the diet but now I'm much faster and less winded. It feels truly great.

    I'm sad to report that my dear mother in law passed away on Sunday. Wake and funeral starts tomorrow and there will be no end of tempting food at those occasions but I feel I can resist as my will power is feeling quite strong right now. She was 66 years old and always very healthy. It was a short battle with Ovarian cancer that really did a number on her. My wife and kids are sad but there is relief as well as she put up quite a fight. My daughter will really miss her at her graduation in 2 weeks from now but understands that it is for the better.

    I am glad you are seeing and feeling such good physical progress. Yes, imagine, a fit athlete going out on the field with weights that equal 30 pounds. They would wind a lot faster and react slower. 30 pounds is a lot!

    I am sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. It is hard to see loved ones go but even harder to see them in pain. May your family find peace through this and your granddaughter know that her grandmother will be at her graduation in spirit.

    I stayed pretty much on plan this week but gained some weight. Been very active and only eating when hungry. Had a sandwich or too and a cookie after the funeral on Thursday but was still down weight. Over the past 4 days I've not been drinking water though, generally not feeling 100% so I think I'm holding water.

    Hopefully the gain will go fast leading up to the graduation next week. A lot of things happened today plumbing wise as well so hopefully even tomorrow I'll see some return to the direction of last weeks low.

    I'm not discouraged. I'm please that I was able to have a couple of off plan cheats/emergency eats during this past week without coming unglued entirely.

    You are doing so very well. Congratulations, again. And you came right back to LC. That is the key, that it becomes such a way of life, your normal way of eating, that when you go off plan for a bit (very short periods) you can come right back. BECAUSE it is your normal way of eating!!!! We released ourselves from the sugar overlord and are free to fly our own way!
