Hi all, my name is Lisa and I am 23 years old and I am 80 pounds overweight. I have not always been overweight. As an adolescent I was involved in any and everything. I played soccer, basketball, track, was on the swim team, and a cheerleader. I was always doing something. That was until we moved half way across Texas and I became uncomfortable in a new school.
Fast forward to 2015, and I decided to do something about my weight. I started running, eating right, and trying to live a very healthy lifestyle. It included a lot of Paleo Way of Eating and juicing. I lost 50 pounds. And then, all of the sudden, I stopped losing and started gaining. It upset me so much, I eventually just quit trying.
I would try the newest supplement to help lose weight and nothing would work. In September of 2016, I went to the emergency room in severe pain, and this is when I found out I had cyst the size of a lime on my right ovary. Not long after that I was diagnosed with PCOS. Which in a lot of ways, makes it very difficult to lose weight.
I struggled with weight gain, pain and depression. I was not happy with who I was. On March 9th of 2018, I decided to try Keto. I had heard of it before, but this time this was my last straw. I made an Instagram page to track my journey, and started following and reading as much about Keto as I could. Now, 39 days later I am 15.8 pounds down, and have lost a total of 9.25 inches!
