    Hello Team! I have been trying to get a good mindset going for this month. I have been exploring the options of the Keto diet and Intermittent fasting. I have been doing the fasting for 5 days now. I am doing the 16:8 and I have found it getting easier the longer I do it. So far I have dropped 2 lbs of water weight. Now I am going to start exploring the Keto diet. I still need to do some shopping for it but I am working with what I have at the house for now. I don't want to go all out and not succeed on it and have felt like I wasted money on another fad diet. I have been watching a lot of videos on Youtube about both subjects. I want to at least give them both a try and see what happens. Is anyone on here doing either one of these?
    I'd llike to know your take on these 2 subjects.

    @Navydaddjtc yes, I like the idea of keeping the step challenge and Mel's challenge and the buddy thing too.
    I am out of time for this morning. I must go to work!! Thankfully I am off tomorrow. I will catch up with everyone later!! Have a great Monday!!

    Hi I have done keto and IF in the past and had a lot of success. Last year i lost about 40 pounds but I was never able to maintain keto for long so I would say I did mostly low carb, IF, and calorie counting (which I think is the most important). IF and reducing carbs are really only tools I use to reduce my overall calories.
    I found keto too restrictive and I get a little crazy trying to balance the macros. I really need to get back on track bc my eating is out of control. Binging at night. Too many carbs. I will do low carb and IF. Eating between 11 and 7. Carbs are like crack to me I can't just have a little bit so they have to go. Today is day 1. I hope I make it through the day. best of luck to you I look forward to hearing how your doing with it.

    @Bear479 I too feel like carbs are crack for me. yesterday was my first day on Keto and my fats were like probably over 75%. So yeah I have to even out the Macros a little better. I really don't think I would have made it this far without the IF. I work as a CNA so that did help a lot with the fasting until noon. Every time I have tried to do a low carb diet in the past I always fail because I want to binge eat on the carbs and sugar. With this Keto and IF I am just taking it 1 day at a time. So far it is working for me.
    You can make it! Good luck to you too!!

    I think keto is also easier in the US bc you have a lot of products geared to keto lifestyle. In Germany we don't have that and if I told someone I was doing keto or low carb they would look at me like I am crazy. Big bread culture here.

    @Bear479 Ohh, that's right you did mention that earlier. Well I guess that would put a damper on your success with the Keto diet. Here in the US Keto is the cool thing to do. lol and it's still hard to stick with. I hope you can find a way to get back to the eating habits you had when you lost the weight before.

    @Navydaddjtc - I second, third, fourth and everyone else's comments in thanking you for keeping us all on track and motivated! Much appreciated that you are finding time to keep us all accountable, when you are so busy yourself!

    My step goal is 10,000 steps
    Steps for Monday 11,540

    I managed to stick to my goals today and have kept track of what I have been eating and didn't feel the need to eat biscuits and sandwiches during my break times. So, I'm going to keep to these goals for now.

    Woohoo hit the 20 :) my Fitbit has stopped sharing steps with MyFitnessPal so that’s disappointing. I will leave it for tomorrow and see if it’s

    will weigh tomorrow or Thursday; at an all day and 4 evening retreat at the Hayes Mansion in San Jose--40 minute drive for me from Palo Alto; having to bring my own lunches, and usually dinners too; a real challenge, plus exercise is a bit out of whack. doing m.y best within these limitations. diabetic blood sugars up slightly.
