F/28/5'5” [292 lbs>203 lbs=89 lbs] (8 months). From my first accountability pic on January 2020 till today. Same shirt, different body!
I have PCOS, so the diet part was my focus first and foremost. Before I can even work out, I needed to lower my blood sugar levels so that it wasn’t haywire anymore. This took about ~2 months. I do have my slow weeks, mostly when I get cravings. I do give in to my cravings and do a “cheat” meal but I always make sure to bring it back the next meal and I always do a 24 hr fast after the cheat (sort of like my punishment….) .
- Intermittent fasting where I flip 24 hours and 18:6 interchangeably.
- Strict Keto consisting of 3-6 oz of meat, an avocado half, and vegetable (spinach, kale, cauliflower or broccoli mostly) per meal. I drink bone broth during my 24 hour fast days along with eggs with cheese.
- I drink one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted with 1 cup of water after every meal.
- I don’t have a specific calorie intake number, just whenever I feel satiated. Since I record everything I eat, it appears that I tend to stop around 1500 cal.
I didn’t start this all in one go of course. I started with the apple cider vinegar and writing down what I eat. Next, I started keto with a strict meal prep schedule for 3 months. After I was fat adapted, I stopped the meal prep and added IF. Now…I just eat whenever I feel weak. Honestly, I only really eat to satiate, so IF and the limited calories is easier now than when I first started.

F/20/5’10 [236lbs > 211lbs = 25 lbs] 2 months! I know it isn’t a huge difference right now but I’m so proud of myself! A lot longer to go but I’m on the right track :)
Exercise wise I will usually just walk around my neighborhood for a few miles everyday! Occasionally I do some sit ups, squats, etc. at home. Food wise, I have cut my calories A LOT and don’t eat nearly as much junk food as I used to. I used to be eating at least 3,000 calories a day and now I do around 1,350 calories, sometimes less. I’ve been eating a lot of protein and trying my best to cut out dairy. I track everything I eat and that really helps me see how much I really am eating. I also watch weight loss transformation videos on youtube all the time to keep me motivated! Thanks so much!!! :)
