Hi, I'm Karen. I'm the mom of 2 wonderful grown daughters, 2 beautiful grandsons, and 2 wonderful "step" grandchilren. I live out in the country in Indiana with my dog Cheyenne and my cat Callie. Now my weight loss journey. My all time high was 289. I had bariatric surgery back in 2012 and got down to 165. Maintained that for about a year but the weight started creeping back. So I went low carb. Atkins. Had great success. Got down to 130. Went off that and went up to 160 where I stayed for some time. Got quite ill with severe stomach pain that no one could diagnose for about a year. Was quite debilitating. Was finally diagnosed as gastroparesis, which they think was related to an ulcer removal surgery I had-they think it severed or damaged something caused the vagus nerve that controls the contractions of the stomach. Anyway am finally on the correct medication and the pain is gone and I am feeling great. Plus, have discovered a ketogenic, that is Low Carb High Fat diet that is working WONDERS! I am down from 160 to 133.2 with an ultimate goal of 120.
