I recently watched a video by Butter Bob about his loose skin following weight loss. He does not plan on having surgery. Not surprisingly, after a lifetime of obesity, I already see it starting on my thighs, arms and stomach.
Working from the inside out, I have been working on defining my “why”. I am good at the scientific and quantitative aspects of a ketogenic lifestyle and intermittent fasting and how it impacts weight loss. For long term success and behavior changes (READ maintenance) it is important to identify why I am doing this.
I have made a commitment to living a ketogenic lifestyle. I have achieved nutritional ketosis. I am a fat burner with intermittent dragon breath. Now is a good time to talk about the frame of mind I have develop to avoid cheating.
This is my 3rd month (and 10 days) update on my journey. Since May 4th, I have lost 33 pounds. Not too shabby! Did I mention I managed to lose during my vacation? Did I mention that I had two “vacations” (one long weekend, one 2-week break) and a work related upgrade/implementation (that included covering overnight) over the past month? Just sayin’, lol, my schedule was a tad bit erratic compared to normal.
