  1. I'm a new viewer and I absolutely love your videos! I too am a keto person. I lost 20+ pds the first time I did this woe …lost my mind in carb addiction and gained it all back 🙁 well , I'm doing this diet again and it is a totally different story this time round. weight loss is slow… inches are coming off but it's slow too. But I feel so much better eating LCHF so I'm gonna hang in here with it!
    Just a thought about the carb counting- some people only count net carbs when it's cruciferous vegetables. Full carb count on everything else. Plus- working the night shift affects your body and weight loss too. I know you may just have to deal with slow but steady weight loss while dealing with LIFE. Hang in there sweet lady!

  2. I admire your great attitude despite all of the negative comments that you get from your mom. I pray for you that she will become more positive or at least stop being so negative about the healthy changes you are making. I'm 52 and just starting keto & tired all of the time and hoping that like you, I'll feel more like walking once I feel better.

  3. Hi DC .. I can relate this is a long slow journey indeed. I have been on Keto for about  2 months and losing weight for me have been so ,so slow . Instead of loosing weight I'm gaining weight . I wish so one could help or tell me where I'm doing wrong. But my blood sugar Is 114,104.,125,102.. Any suggestions

  4. Grandma DC, you're amazing! I just found your video and I love them, your spirit is so lovely. Keep up the great work, I think you're on the right track. I think the weight loss will come in time. I've been Keto for about 2 months now and a lifetime of chronic health problems finally feel manageable and under control. I feel amazing and like you feel like the way I feel is worth the lifestyle alone. Please don't get discouraged, you're doing great and your Keto family will be here to support you every step of the way.

  5. Your depression is lifting. Your pain is slowly going away. You obviously have a lot of inflammation from years of health issues. And you're right, at your age it's gonna be a slow grind. But don't give up, even after 60 days. It really is worth it.

    Drs. Phinney and Volek say that it takes a MINIMUM 6 weeks for nutritional ketosis. Some may hit it sooner, some later. The important thing is how YOU feel. If you feel great, keep going. Your body will take care of itself. Best of luck to you.

  6. I'm in menopause, havent lost a ton of weight, but several inches. I am 8 months in and all my back pain is gone . I have scoliosis, but bc all that pain is gone and swelling now, I began swimming again at the y. I am gradually building up my muscles I hope lol It truly is healing from the inside out ! And yes, it is freeing. I watch my grandbaby also, prior, I wouldnt have been able to do that. Count your blessings, not the pounds <3

  7. Grandma DC, Do not be discouraged some of us do not loose weight easily. I been doing low carb a year and a half only lost 15 but lost tons of inches. I was a size 18 and now 10, on only 15 pounds loss.

  8. If you are talking about Stephanie Person, she does a LOT of working out and weight lifting on Keto. Are you taking measurement? I was losing more inches than weight at the beginning of my keto diet. I think your mother is talking about ketoacidosis. It is not the same as ketosis.

  9. Are you using the test strip? Just to make sure that you are in keto. Are you counting your carbs accurately? Are you taking something in that might be spiking your insulin? Some artificial sweeteners can so this… it all depends on your unique system. Try to cut out or replace things one at a time to see what might be spiking your insulin. Actually testing your blood sugar would be best. The last thing is to try some intermittent fasting. I'm doing that right now. I have a bullet proof coffee in the morning and then I do not eat until dinner. It seems to be getting me passed a stall. BUT you really should not need it at this point. At the end of the day you may be eating just a little too much. Are you only eating when you are hungry hungry? Like someone else said , more water more water more water! And keep going… keep tweaking it to see what works best for you!

  10. Are you drinking enough water? That can often solve the problem. 🙂 Other than that, the best piece of advice I can give you is to give up anytjing with soy products in it (seemingly most of prepared food and restaurant meals in the US, unfortunately), as it's the leading cause of thyroid issues due to the goitrogens in it. Soy caused my metabolic rate to drop by a whopping 1100 calories a day.
