My Story: How I Lost 77 Pounds

My story begins many years ago. I started my health improvement and weight loss journey in 2008 after a series of health scares forced me to look at my bad diet and non-existent exercise habits. My blood pressure and fasting blood sugar were both elevated, and I started having issues with blurred vision and pain in my feet. That really scared me, as my mother had been diabetic before she died at the age of 63, and I did not want to end up dying young and in pain as she had. So I started paying attention to how I felt after I ate. Armed with my observations, I began to change my diet. At first, I cut out the obvious processed junk foods, and started choosing real foods instead. Out went the boxed and canned stuff, and I started eating fresh meats and vegetables instead. Although my diet was much lower in carbs at this point, and I had removed many of the problematic foods, I still got my chocolate fix in every week, and I was eating bread or corn chips occasionally.

    I have been doing the Keto diet for 2.5 weeks. The first week I lost 4 lbs in 6 days. Then gained a lb and lost .6 now I'm stalled out. Basically losing .2 every few days. I AM in ketosis. I know the metallic taste, the urine smell and I test my urine in the AM before I drink water and it is at the high end of the color spectrum. My macros are 75/20/5. My energy levels are through the roof!! So no complaints there. I feel amazing!! My skin, hair etc looks better but the weight isn't coming off, even though I'm in ketosis.... Can anyone help me with this? I drink massive amounts of water. It's my addiction. At least 200 oz a day.... Always have so that's nothing new. Thanks in advance!

    Is your doctor advising you about your diet? Being in ketosis, drinking so much water, not losing weight - and continuing with the diet - I would ask your doctor what he or she thinks is going on.

    Since you are already at a healthy weight for your height I suspect that's why you are not losing large amounts of weight. With that said, a couple of suggestions...
    Are you eating enough fat? It has been shown that higher fat in = higher fat out.
    Also remember you can lose inches without losing pounds, this is normal and happens to everyone. Stalls are normal, they are your body's way of shifting gears and figuring out what changes are happening.
    Again, 5'8 and 149 lbs is a perfectly healthy weight and I can't see it would be very healthy for you to lose much more. Just keep at it, and if you have weight to lose, it will come off, but the less weight you have to lose the slower it will be...if your in the last 5 lbs to lose, i reiterate, it can take some time for that since your body is more likely to hold onto it. Maybe try an Atkins fat fast if that's your goal?
    Good luck!
