"I did Atkins years ago and did experience quick weight loss and equally quick weight gain once I started eating again.  I also felt lousy the whole time. Why are you doing this?  Everything I'm reading suggests that…"

Almost a week in!

Today is day 7 on my keto diet.  So far so good...however I have to add some stuff to my day 4 recap.It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.  I was so extremely tired. Not only was I overly tired but I was really overly emotional - which was odd.  That was Sunday and my boyfriend and I were going to a friend's to watch Wrestlemania (Taker's streak ended sadly for anyone who follow WWE).  I really just felt like staying home but I had been looking forward to watching it so I pulled…See More

Keep Calm and Keto On

As I mentioned in my first post, I've decided to keto to lose weight.  Keto = ketogenic diet.  Let me explain.Normally, the body prefers to use glucose (sugar) as it's primary source of fuel - when it's available.  Carbs and even some proteins are converted to sugars that your body uses as fuel.  A ketogenic diet is a diet that causes the liver to create ketones and switch the body's metabolsim from using glucsoe as fuel to using fat as fuel.  So what this means is that in the absence of sugar…See More

From Flats 2 Stilettos

You might be asking yourself “what the heck is From Flats 2 Stilettos?” Well I’m about to tell you. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I surely feel better about myself when I am wearing my 4-6 inch stilts than when I am in a pair of sneakers. There aint nothing in this world that I feel seems more attractive than a woman holding her own in a nice pair of pumps.If you’re anything like me who pretty much started struttin at the age of 7, you will come to realize that the more weight we put…See More

Here I am

So I suppose a "first" post should describe who I am. hmmmmm.Welp...I'm 30. I'm fat. I have a whiny dog (who is awesome). I'm in love. I have acquired cats that don't think my dog is as awesome as I do. I have a crazy family. But a great boyfriend who is aware and accepts that. But right now I'm just tired of being overweight.I wasn't always this way.  As a matter of fact I was always thin growing.  I woudn't say skinny - but thin and shapely.  Of course then I still felt like I was overweight.…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I just turned 30. I wasn't someone who spend my whole life being overweight. I first gained weight when I graduated college. It was about 30 to 40 pounds and I lost all that weight in about 6 months. I felt good about myself, everyone said I looked good. I was happy. Then I gained about 75 pounds. I've lost about 18 of it but i'm still 190 in a five foot 3 inch body. On paper, everything in my life is good. I have a good job, I have good friends, and a good guy. And yet, I've withdrawn from all things I love because I just can't find any semblance of confidence anymore. I've started and stopped so many 'diets' but I lose motivation so quickly. It's harder now too because I have plantar fasciitis in my right food so my exercise capabilities is limited. I've used myfitness pal and I like the idea of the blog but all those people do is judge each other and play the expert. I don't find it encouraging and I don't find it motivating. I want a place where I can share my story as it unfolds and watch others achieve success too. This looks like that place.
Plan of Choice:
Other
Workout Philosophy:
I only exercise because I have to
