First Month of Keto, Pounds Lost and Meal Ideas

It has been one month since I started Keto / LCHF and it is getting HARD now. The first two weeks were ok, however the third and fourth week was when Keto flu hit and when I experienced the strongest cravings EVER.

Right now my cravings are at an all time high- BUT I am handling it well due to the amount of kids I have. I don’t have time to sit and daydream about sweets. Instead I’m running around the entire day (I literally don’t have one minute to sit, like ever) taking care of the kids and when I’m not taking care of the kids I’m doing chores and meal prep and cooking and cleaning and sometimes updating this blog. I will often forget to eat and won’t have enough time to eat and so will just quickly down a slice of cheese and continue running around the house like a crazy person. Forget getting a gym membership- these kids have me running up and down the stairs a hundred times a day and they are my very own personal trainers!

So me and hubby have decided to weigh ourselves monthly instead of weekly. We know all the weight will come off eventually so instead of obsessing over it weekly we chose to just do it once a month, at the beginning of the month.

After the first month of Keto I have lost 14 pounds, and hubby has lost 8 pounds. I only have about 56 more pounds to go, and it’s not really that obvious I’ve lost any weight because I was so heavy to begin with. We are just going to keep at it.
