    About 50lbs more to go! Currently doing relatively strict keto but transitioning into low carb as I start strength training. Will gradually increase carb intake from there. Any thoughts?

    I want to join! I am currently at 199.3, SW was 207.5 and I was doing WW but I found that I wasn’t eating enough calories and it was very expensive (for me). I need to get to 145 but I’ll be happy with 165.

    @jmakleanaddo I've never tried keto or low carb. I find the restrictions too difficult for me. I count calories. That way if I feel like I really need <insert bad food here>, I can. How are your workouts with low carb?
  • heatherrorieheatherrorie Member Posts: 23 Member Member Posts: 23 Member
    @Teri_F - welcome! Yeah, I've tried WW before, but found it difficult. I am a calories in, calories out mindset and the points annoyed my brain although there program is well designed.

    This week's loss... 2.9lb! :)

    It's odd, over the last 5 weeks, I've had a big weekly loss, tiny weekly loss, big weekly loss, tiny weekly loss, big weekly loss...

    Other than exercise last Sunday which never happens, I've been incredibly consistent with my calories consumed and energy burn, just proving that thing people always say: weight loss isn't always linear.

    Anyway, that takes me a new weight of 176.8lb (SW: 202.7lb) and on track for my first goal of 174.5lb in two weeks' time. Oh, and today marks the end of week 12!

    Tried a new homemade chicken and vegetable curry recipe... was afraid that it would wreck my calorie goal today but surprisingly its not a super high calorie dish even with the full fat coconut milk. Learning the portion control part of eating at the moment. Surprisingly did very well on calories today and have room for some desert again.

    Steps: gonna pace the apartment to finish
    Planning to go to bed at 1030 again.
