Seriously, these before and after pictures motivate me to STICK with The Shepherd’s Code AKA KETO LIFESTYLE. There are thousands of fantastic success stories out there! The several benefits of NOT having that pasta, that sugar cookie, or the soda pop helps keep me on track. Increased JOY, higher ENERGY, renewed CLARITY as brain fog is lifted, ease of MOVEMENT without pain, soft SKIN, blood pressure STABLE, stylish zip up CLOTHING, sound SLEEP, and of course the MELTED fat!!! Linda walks dogs for exercise, Sue lifts weights twice a week, Dawn remains active volunteering with physical labor and now I CAN TOO…DO ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me. This beautiful woman has an amazing story and she has stuck with KETO for the past 17 years and has maintained a 134 pound weight loss while traveling, while mothering, while adjusting to a new life in a new country! Her story and the many other testimonies and recipes online keeps it real, while pictures reinforce “my reasons” to “KETO ON” !!!
The nurse in the picture above is a cancer survivor. ” I began the KETO Lifestyle in May 2017 at 183 pounds and I was wearing size 18’s. My weight now is 118 pounds and I wear a size 3. I started at 35% body fat, now down to 18%. I’ve had many slip ups but I always get back on. Diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I am also a thankful cancer survivor 🙏✊ I had a hysterectomy in November 2016 due to cancer. Everyone and anyone can do this.” Give your body time to get FAT adapted. Google “KETO” and spend time educating yourself on WHY your choice to go “KETO” is a healthy choice!
My faith increased that God will enable me to “finish well”. My journey includes the damage done to my hormone, adrenal and thyroid by a long ago hysterectomy, however, my body has melted fat like a hot furnace, in month one, slow but sure the scale finally registered 10 pounds gone for good. “NEVER GIVE UP” is my motto and commitment to regain my health! I have cleaned out my cupboards and acquired a few new cooking and baking utensils. The truth is I have never been much of a cook or kitchen gal. It is definitely cheaper to eat out in Mexico and we have a slew of fine dining restaurants. The Skinny Guy on Facebook has motivated me with a ton of posts about all the ways he has found to eat KETO at fast food restaurants. Youtube, Pintrest, and Facebookers all post a continuous blast of yummy recipes which I have borrowed and reposted here on WordPress. Those recipes have been tried and proven to be tasty in my kitchen. Click this link to some savory choices COOK with KETO Coach
After reviewing these pics and more recipes, with NO COOKING, this is my meal for the morning and afternoon. Seriously NOT hungry on KETO, but I stay busy researching.
