#keto Surprisingly delicious and light.

Since sheltering, I've gained 40 lbs back. Flirting with the idea of going Keto again. But to achieve that I was going every day to the gym, running 45 minutes and lifting weights 2x a week. It was exhausting often. People said I was starting to look too thin. Weirdly, I feel 98% the same person either fat or thin. I had thrown out my size 12 and 14 pants vowing to never wear that size again. Doesn't matter hugely in the days of Zoom what I wear luckily, and joggers are 1 size fits all. I noticed people look kinder when they have a little weight on them. My inner self feels lean though. I really don't want to own pants in every size I can be - it is way too much clothing as I get down to size 4. I wish we could just pick a size and be done with it. Biggest tricks on dieting: don't eat past 7pm. Think of your calories by the week, not the meal so if you splurge on Sunday, don't eat so much the rest of the week. Record what you eat and notice when you stress eat what your triggers are. Every lb you lose is 5lbs of pressure off your knees. Float like a bee on the earth.
