I can move mountains… of fat off my thighs, and waist, and chin, and biceps, and face, and rearend… 47.2 lbs gone, about 32.8 lbs to go!!
I felt so unhealthy and disgusted with myself a year ago. I was embarrassed to go swimming with my family, although I still did. The fibromialgia symptoms I had were horribly unbearable.
In October, I found out there was a good chance I would have to have a second c spine surgery since the first one done on 4/23/14 seemed to have failed. I knew I needed to work to be healthier for the recovery so it would not be as painful. The second surgery was very painful. It was February 22, 2016. The extra energy from this ketogenic way of eating, along with the strength and muscles that I gained have helped me through.
I start seeing a therapist Wednesday for the residual anger, depression and sadness that I have been trying to bury. Also for the PTSD I am apparently still dealing with. I just want to work and help provide for my family. I am so glad I am finally going to talk to someone about this who may be able to lead me in a better direction.
So, cheers to a great year. I hope the next year gives me back my ability to work…
