Keto works

I saw a book today by an author who lost 140 pounds on keto. I had a couple thoughts:


Yes, some people call it a bandwagon. Maybe it is. But I remain convinced because anything that does not require weird supplements and no extra costs besides food? That’s not a scam. That’s real.

My second thought…

Why are you bothering to talk about keto at all? So many people are more successful than you. No one cares what you have to say.

We can be our own worst enemies.

I’m not even sure if anyone is reading this anyway. But maybe someone is. Maybe someone needs it. Or will need it.

I actually started writing memoir? something? about my keto journey. Not sure what I will do with it, if anything. But losing weight? I learned that there is a whole lot more to it than eating.

For now, I will keep saying KETO WORKS because I believe it.


Teachers and Keto

Well, looky there. It’s been a while. Why? ‘Cause teaching is kicking my butt ya’ll.

And can I tell you? Schools are basically run on carbs. Carbs everywhere! I can’t eat or participate in 95% of the food offered at school. “Free donuts in the teacher’s lounge!” Carb focused meals for every event.

And then there is this:


keto challenge

Why do schools think throwing candy on the table for EVERY SINGLE MEETING makes everything better? I don’t know ya’ll. But I know this. If I had not been invested into keto for a whole year before I started teaching, I’d have gained twenty pounds this year.

It’s SO EASY to eat mindlessly. To pop food in your mouth. That’s what changed for me when I did keto. I thought about what I was eating, and the compulsion to eat went away.

So if you’re a teacher, give keto a try during the summer so you can create new habits away from that carb-toxic environment!

Free Keto!

The thing I love most about keto? Besides fabulous and fast weight loss (because – duh!- THAT is pretty awesome)?

Keto cost me nothing!!

I never bought a product.

Oh, there are a lot of keto products out there and if you like using them – then, go you!

But you don’t have to use them. You don’t have to buy anything extra. You don’t have to sign up for a program. You don’t have to spend money on anything except good, real food.

I’ll admit – my grocery bill is higher from keto. But my life is beyond better and totally worth the good food I buy now.

I’m in the process of simplifying my life (and boy is that probably worth a few blog posts all on their own). I went back to work full time after staying home with my kids for many wonderful years. So full-time work means I have to be super careful about what belongs in my life now.

I have been closing things down, purging my life of things that I carried around for a long time. I am getting rid of some baggage. It’s hard. So hard. But good. So good.

And as I have been “getting back to basics” I found that talking about keto – reaching out to you!! – is still super important to me. So I will keep blogging, keep raving about keto and I will try to help you as much as I can.

Because I believe in you. I know there are people out there just like me, desperate for lasting freedom from the weight.

I want you to succeed.

I want you to find freedom from the weight.
