Photos or it didn't happen.. LOL.
I'm proud of myself for the month of March and for early April 2018. Solid state weight maintenance. Slightly higher plateau than my "best" weight maintenance range. I'll take a steady weight maintenance over a pivot, trend, or just out of control weight gain any day. Because my obesity really, really wants to come back.
March and early April 2018 brought a mild cold and some big stresses. Nothing that couldn't be managed, though. Without over eating due to stress. With food choices that work. With 18:6 fasting. With a lot of walks at the beach.
April 2018: I've connected with a new Low Carb San Diego group. Once I vet them out for not being a sales funnel or anything too funky, I'll blog about it. On the light side so many great groups and on the dark side so many folks selling books, products, and stuff without solid claims.
Keep with the peeps getting results. That promote sane solutions. Start by not chasing ketones. Start by chasing results. Truth!
Oh, and my first DEXA scan soon. Hmmm. I'm a data geek so facing bone loss or needing to decrease my body fat % is nothing to hide. I may not blog about my results right away...
