The day after

Great day! I didn’t get upset, not even once (I am amazed – I usually cry on my birthday! I went over my carbs but not as bad as I thought I would too!

I went out to drive for Lyft at 6am but no calls. I went to Whole Foods and they have my Zevia soft drinks on sale 2 for $7 so I got 4 6 packs. I drive and parked at a Starbucks near my hair place and gave some random stranger my birthday freebie and all I asked in return was that he pay it forward. I got to my hair appointment early and it took my guy 2 1/2 hours to do my hair. I didn’t get out of there until 12:20. This is before he started. Look at my tiny legs! All the leg excess skin is hiding under my thighs. I love how my calves look! This is after in my car. I drove home and called Uber for a ride to the game. I was late. The game stared at 1:10 and I got there at 1:20 and the lines were so long, I wasn’t in my seat until 1:45! I got a beer and peanuts (favorite baseball food plus I was starving since I ate a little breakfast at 6am) and sat in my awesome seat that I had got myself for my birthday. I cant decide which picture is better so I thought I would leave it up to y’all. I then got a Lyft to pick me up and drive me to dinner with my oldest friend and a newer friend that had never met (traffic made it an hour drive – one reason to not like Houston).

W is my oldest friend. We met when we were little and were in kindergarten together. A’s son goes to school with my son and that’s how we met. She and I go to the gym every once in a while together too. We all got margaritas at this Mexican food place not too far away (there’s places pretty much every mile or so in Houston for Mexican food but you have to know where to go).

I was starving again so had queso and chips. I only took a sip of my margarita, I just didn’t really want it I guess. I ate the crap out of the chips and queso though! My friends wouldn’t let me pay, they split the bill between them. How sweet!

I did break the no weigh challenge yesterday. I wanted to know. Remember I was 182 on May 31st. On my birthday yesterday, I weighed 173.2! How cool is that? My face looks so long in one of those pictures up there. It’s funny because the other one doesn’t look like it at all. I’m just glad I don’t look like my cheeks are caved in like some people get when they lose a bunch of weight. I like how I look. I only have 10 pounds to go to be at an average healthy weight (according to BMI scales). I am sticking with keto though because I really like it and it’s easy. Here are yesterday’s numbers. You can see I only had 3 grams of sugar and 43 carbs. I seriously thought it was going to eat like 150 carbs which is why I’m happy. I don’t even think I dropped out of ketosis. I will plan better for my trip this weekend since I don’t want to go off plan for 3 days. I will take snacks so I’m not starving, have preportioned everything, and take a bunch of food with me.

Today is a crazy day before we leave. I have to go see the doctor for what is hopefully my last treatment at 8. I am supposed to have Ms. Forgets at 10. My son has his psychologist appointment at 12:30. I then pick up Styled for her hair appointment at 1:30. That’s a busy day! My son just passed out in my bed after staying up all night. I just hope I can wake him up by noon to pick him up!

Have a great day. Let me know which picture you like better. What do you think of my birthday day?

  1. Happy Birthday. Congratulations on your weight loss. That is wonderful. It is so hard to lose weight as you get older: I know. My clothes are fitting me better because of all the exercise but losing pounds is hard, no matter how much you try.

    1. Even at my old age (HA), I am finding that with the keto lifestyle, it has been way too easy to lose it! I have struggled to lose weight my whole life until now. And thank you! It’s one of the only great birthdays that I’ve had!


  2. You are very welcome! I tried making one of those chocolate bomb recipes but it was too bitter for us to digest. I am going to print the recipe and the pics on my blog tomorrow. I believe it needed more sweetner. I felt inspired after reading about your recipe.

  3. Sounds like you had an awesome birthday!! Your hair looks so pretty, Julie! I love the new ‘do. I was totally thinking the same thing about your legs! They look so thin!!
    I like the first photo a bit better but you look great in both!
    & I’m so proud of you! You have been losing weight so quickly! You’ll be in the “healthy weight” zone before August gets here. Wow!
