The truth about my keto journey

The truth about my keto journey

I have been following the ketogenic diet since May 4th, 2017. As I quickly approach my 9 month keto-versary, I thought it was time to share a little “behind the scenes” look at what the keto life has been like for me. Be prepared, this […]

Losing weight with a pill

Losing weight with a pill

Nearly five years ago, I was taking a prescription called Phentermine. I was turned on to this drug by a friend of mine who found great weight loss success while using it.  As I’m sure some of you can relate, I generally found myself in […]

Five months – Down 35.2lbs and 32in

Five months – Down 35.2lbs and 32in

Happy five months, keto fam. I cannot even believe I’ve been eating this way for FIVE WHOLE MONTHS. I don’t think I’ve ever… No, I know I’ve never followed a “diet” this long in my life. By now, I’d have gained my weight back and […]

Facelift Friday

The Financial Impact of Keto

The Financial Impact of Keto

Being a stay at home mom is a new thing for me. For the last several years, my husband and I both pulled in solid incomes from our very stable careers. We were accustom to getting what we wanted, when we wanted and never really […]

Today I ate a cupcake

Today I ate a cupcake

While visiting Texas, my dad, the kids and I went to a local cupcake shop. This particular cupcake shop happens to share a wall with my husband’s favorite BBQ joint. Of course, I knew of this cupcake shop, as I’d frequent this location while my […]

Three Months – Down 27lbs and 23.75in

Three Months – Down 27lbs and 23.75in

Y’all, even though I’m super proud of my journey, this is definitely the uncomfortable part. Stripping back the filters and good angles and just revealing my “true self” to you is not my idea of a good time. But, here I am anyway. I’d like […]
