Measure Day!

Day 1, these stats are a distant memory!!  I can’t even believe that I have been on this journey for 28 days…and the results are so amazing, that I have to keep reminding myself that this is really ME!~

So, here I am at Day 28 – but, I want to reflect on my intentions of taking the #ketodriven path…  I suffered from a few ailments; blood sugar all over the place (very near Stage 2 Diabetes), Auto Immune Disease (I could go on and on about these symptoms…), Hashimoto’s Disease (wasn’t bad enough to have a ill thyroid…let’s just really throw me for a loop), fibromyalgia (yes, it’s real…and painful)…throw in anxiety, depression, and the fact that I WILL catch anything that comes near me (I am a magnet).

So, what am I doing different?  Well, I am the product of trying everything that is out there….and mostly, I lost time, ended up in the hospital dehydrated, got temporary results, and lost a ton of $ too!  So, when 26731304_10156040882634910_3116593351647365337_n.jpga friend said, I take a Ketone drink once a day and I am feeling great….I was skeptical.  As a mom of 3, 2 living at home, I can’t afford another ‘try this’…but she was persistent.  So, I said, alright, what the heck!  She said, let’s just try it…a taster pack and let’s see what you like for taste!  See her and I have a lot of the same symptoms, so I said, well if it’s working for you, I will be positive…let me just place an order!  So, I did….and 28 days later, here is a summary of my journal….Please remember that my weight wasn’t totally off the charts, and certainly wasn’t my immediate concern….I was more concerned with the prescriptions I was taking, the feeling I was feeling….etc.

  • Brain fog, forgetfulness, losing everything (including my mind!) – by day 3, I was already feeling more organized and focused!  Hmmmm….ok, that is good!
  • Pain in my lower back, hip, down my left leg – Wow, within the first week, I was getting right up out of bed.  Why is this a big deal?  Well, before, I would lay there, until I just couldn’t lay there anymore…I exercised in bed, I tried everything…I just couldn’t stand the pain of getting out of bed, some days I just didn’t bother…..
  • Sleep….what is that?  I would go to bed at 3am, not even tired, but exhausted!  I was up to get the kids off to school at 6, then back to bed until 1pm!  Great life huh?  Not anymore, the first night…literally, I slept 10 hours!  Ummm…what?  Ok, by the end of the first week, I was on a schedule, to bed around 10ish, up at 6 and no naps…what the what?  YEP!
  • Wait are my clothes fitting differently?  Well, yes…they are!  I have dropped 2 pant sizes since my start…wow.  Back into my Wranglers and boots…don’t have to wear leggings all the time anymore!!!  WooHoo!!
  • Cravings – I am an emotional and stress eater…so I have this stash of snacks in my desk drawer…lol.  Honey buns, snack cakes, cheetos!  I could feed an Army!  Anyway, I gave all that to my kids, why…no cravings, in fact, they don’t even taste good anymore.  WOW!  What am I craving?  Veggies, salad, cheese, bacon…ok, I can live with that!!

I think you get the picture…  Feel free to support me on my journey at facebook.com/ketodriven – and if you are open to knowing more about how I am doing this without massive exercise, no prescriptions, no pills, no cardboard dinners….just connect with me!  🙂  Thank you for making me accountable for change!
