I'm eating normally. I've nearly twice from illness though so for me a diet probably wouldn't do anything except make me hangry anyway 😂 Whatever y'all do drink water! I know some people feel like it can make you bloated but you do not want to risk fainting from dehydration.
I cut out soda, desserts, & creamer with coffee. I still eat full meals, just try to make healthier choices. I also started going to HIIT classes twice a week and walking my dog at least 3 miles every weekend. I've lost 13 lbs in 5 months.
I've started cutting processed sugars (candy, soda, ice cream), "white foods" (rice, bread, pasta), getting as many veggies as possible, and drinking lots of water. So far it's only been a couple of pounds but I have an Aqua Zumba class next week and I know that will start to help.
I’m doing weight watchers and working out 4-5 times a week. I started it when I got engaged and restarted about 8 weeks before my second fitting. I’m down 14 lbs total. I would highly recommend it especially if you want to keep it off. I felt amazing in my dress and now I’m just in maintenance mode where I don’t want to lose/gain and more weight.

Sounds like from your post below you’re on a great path! I tried to live partial keto everyday (just cutting out the bad stuff) then did a few severe two-week keto sprints of no fruit (sugar) or sugary veggies (corn, no beans of any kind) to help my metabolism. Those weeks sucked but the rest wasn’t bad.
I missed crunchy stuff the most... cucumbers & radishes are not chips! Lol. 😝 Giving up lattes (sugar) was tough too but I can’t drink unsweetened coffee. Ew. And missed wine on weekends. But dang... I looked GOOD on my wedding day. So will you. 😃

I count my calories on an app (I use the Fitbit app but have heard good things about fitness pal?) and I just make sure my caloric intake is lower than my caloric output. If you do this you’re guarenteed to lose weight and it doesn’t necessarily mean “dieting”. My average day consists of 3 smaller meals and 2 snacks. Couple this with walking or some excersize and you’re golden 😊
I had bariatric surgery 3 years ago, and all i've done is get back on track with how I should be eating. I focus on lean protein. I don't like water but i'm trying to drink it more to make my skin look better from the inside out. I eat more fruit and veggies. i'm trying to cut out fast food for the most part too. I have high blood pressure and I don't need all the added sodium
A little bit of Keto and a lot of bit of BBG by Kayla Itsines - was looking for a balance of losing a little snacking weight and focused on getting toned up and feeling good; it's been fantastic to be on a plan, enjoy my workouts and not have to come up with them on my own and they're short - 28 minutes 3x a week and walking a bunch as well!
