hey people - strong lurker here, coming up for air
I'm a twenty something gal, 5'3, about 265 lbs. Those stats look better than it feels and believe you me, it doesn't feel good. My challenge here is facing up to some of my truths as I've become especially skilled at bobbing and weaving, both people and myself, avoiding any form of confrontation over my weight gain. We'll get into that later. I'm not new to exercise nor keto. I just allowed an extremely bad breakup over a lackluster relationship, depression from the pits of idkwut, and the privilege of avoiding the outside world turn me from a happy go lucky, attractive girl to.. well.. this.
I'm not at rock bottom right now though, and I'm actually writing this post workout. I'm back in the gym (whatttt) (first week back, this was a feat).. and its a process. Its frustrating not to be able to do the things I used to. But I'm here. My big goal right now is to just keep showing up. Means I'm on track. And plus. You guys are awesome.
I work in the entertainment industry- living that pursuit of happiness lol and there are enough no's and eating crow in developing this career of mine to make anyone go batty. I don't need my rattled confidence impeding my progress in other parts of my life. And let us be reality - not only do I just run better on keto and when I work out, I look better too. I was oblivious to it for a lot of my life but.. I like how I feel when I know I look great. And then there's the not dropping dead over things I could help..thing. smh
Since my goal is to become FIT. Not "smaller" or "tone up". No.. to become a fit, double sided coin of good and trouble signed with a sweet smile, I'll be around here for quite some time. And I figured I'd add to the body of knowledge on the internet since so many keto searches bring stuff up for the fellas
(picture my clinging for answers in female threads with <10 replies. ack!)
