My Journey to a Healthy Me, Days 163 – 169

Whew, it has been a few days. Moving still sucks! haha.

We had my son’s graduation party this last weekend. We had a few family members show, and some cancel. Everything went pretty well. My sister is doing Keto eating too, so we had similar things to eat.

My sister and her kids got here on Friday, and left today. My Dad and his wife has been here since Tuesday. This morning they went down to Southern California to visit some friends, but will be back up here Tuesday night. They will fly out really early on Wednesday.

So with family being in town, not much moving is happening. This Unfortunately means we need to do a bunch tonight. Movers come tomorrow morning. We are having them get the heavy things. We will move the rest.

Father’s Day

For the first time in a long time, I got to spend Father’s Dad with my father. 🙂 We went over to Happy Hollow Park and Zoo. Only my brother was missing.

We say animals, and the kids rode some rides. Lots of fun, some sunburn.

Week Wrap Up

This last week was a lot tougher then I have had in awhile. Lots of eating out, but I tried to make sure I was Keto. I still tried tracking, but there was some things that were just not correct.

Weight Loss

Tuesday, I got myself out of the 300’s. My weight stayed pretty consistent, then took another small jump today.

Down to 294 lbs this morning. Even with all the nights of eating out. That is 6.6 lbs lost this week, and 73.6 total since January 1st.

Since I knew I would be eating out more, I tried to prepare myself. Some days, I only ate once. Last night we went to a BBQ place, and it was the only meal I had that day. Other times, I tried sticking to meats and salads. Overall, I felt like it worked, but I am glad to get back to a little of the way I was eating before. Moving next week, then bowling will provide another challenge.


06/11 MyFitnessPal – 1783 Calories, 8 net carbs
06/12 MyFitnessPal – 1913 Calories, 11 net carbs
06/13 MyFitnessPal – 1853 Calories, 13 net carbs (could be a few more carbs)
06/14 MyFitnessPal – 1287 Calories, 18 net carbs
06/15 MyFitnessPal – 2240 Calories, 29 net carbs (should be lower carbs at least)
06/16 MyFitnessPal – 1060 Calories, 33 net carbs (should be lower carbs)
06/17 MyFitnessPal – 1238 Calories, 15 net carbs

2 days I was over 20 net carbs, but I don’t think I was in reality. The 15th we ate at Outback. I had a wedge salad with ranch, but no croutons. I also only had a bit of the broccoli and cheese. It was a weird cheese sauce, and wasn’t that great.

On the 16th, we ate at Dave and Busters for the party. I had a big salad, but I had no onions, croutons, or candied pecans with it. So good luck figuring out what I really ate.

I figured I had no real adverse effects so far, so I probably didn’t break Keto.

Some days good, some days bad. I did at least read each night before heading to bed. Hopefully, I can get better on track soon.

This week

Moving continues. Movers are here Tuesday, Thursday we have Comcast moving the TV/Internet service. On Friday, I drive 7 hours to bowl near Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday. Then after bowling on Sunday, I head back home for 7 hours. So no rest!


  1. Man, another 6 pounds with the week you have had you should get credit for 20 pounds at Seriously though, great job kicking butt and staying in ketosis bruh! Have a safe move and the picture at the zoo was awesome they look so happy, great job dad!
