I started the keto diet on October 7, 2020. Good news: It works! I realize now that the reason I was so overweight can be attributed to just a few bad food choices. Getting rid of sugar and flour and replacing them with healthier alternatives is the biggest contributor to my weight loss. I don't even crave sugar anymore. We have found recipes that satisfy my "sweet tooth" including a keto cheesecake and keto chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, both homemade.

Total Weight Loss: 25 pounds
I love that I lost 25 pounds and do not feel deprived. I'm never hungry or have unhealthy cravings - those went away. But there is more that I can do and I will probably have to do to keep up the pace. While we have cut down on alcohol (beer has been totally eliminated), I want to keep drinking less. I also want to eat more vegetables. We have already started eating more salads which was a delightful change to the diet.
