The 6th of this month was the 90 day mark to my 40th birthday, which was enough to kick my ass in gear. I refuse to be 230+ when that day comes, so I've buckled down and am on the keto train for the 4th time now. This is the first time that I've had the "keto flu" and it's an interesting experience. Pretty bad diarrhea and general lethargy, which is probably an indicator of how unhealthy I was as of two weeks ago. I shed 7#s in a matter of 4 days, but will need to increase my caloric burn rate if I'm going to hit my goal of <215 by 9/6/22. The whole COVID thing really upended my routine and my drinking dramatically increased, so a big part of what I'm doing is cutting back on beer. I also fell back into to the whole"sweets before bed" trend that makes fat me, fatter. I never imagined my weight would turn into a lifelong struggle 😔

Keep at it, Jesse! Easier said than done, but find a way to enjoy the process. It makes dietary and physical activity a lot easier to incorporate into your daily schedule. The good news is, once you find your sweet spot, you can still smash beer on the weekends and enjoy some sweets. Good luck, I'm rootin for ya.
