So this last November brought the best day of my life as well as the worst. Matt and I got hitched November 11th, 2017. It was a glorious day and I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to celebrate our big day with. That being said I was the only person there I was unhappy with. I was uncomfy in my dress because of bulges and bumps and felt squeezed to death because I just had to wear Satan's girdle underneath my gorgeous dress. This day was the beginning of me understanding that I had to make a change. A real change not just I'm going to eat 300 calories a day for 2 days and then stop because it's hard change.
Cue Keto. Having PCOS it is very hard for me to loose weight. My body doesn't know how to use the insulin correctly, so doctors have always recommended for me to do a low carb "diet". I have done Keto (Low Carb High Fat) in the past and it had worked beautifully, until my food/sugar addiction kicked in and I gave up once again because it was hard. Side note, I am lazy I want everything instantly and I want to work the least amount to get said thing. This is a hard thing for me to admit. I know it is something I have always struggled with and will forever battle. I Jessica Anne Culp like the easy road. I have seen how choosing the easy road is not a viable option here and so I have done my best to count my macros, choose good foods, and cut out 90% of my cheaty low carb "desserts".
All this being said I still have days I want cookies and milkshakes, they are just not as often. As I sit her drinking my unsweetened green tea I think how easy it would have been to do this years ago. I tell my ladies at work that to make a change we have to be ready.
I wasn't ready before, but I am now.
