Good job!! I will tell you that while many do keto to lose weight, the REAL reason is for good health, weight loss is just a happy side effect. Your body knows when to stop.
Keto is proven to have many many health pluses...lessening of pain, health problem clearing, there are many documented cases of women told they could never bear children who now have “keto babies”. There are promising studies in the works on Alzheimer’s prevention and slowing, Parkinson’s, and others proving how healthy and beneficial keto is to ones heath. So glad to have you with us!!!

I've been faithfully food journaling for a little over 6 weeks at another LC forum, but I'm going to move over here since it's a much more active group and I think I'll be hanging out here a lot emoticon I don't track my macros per se, but I do keep a daily running list of what I'm eating, to give me an idea of where I'm at. I'm going to copy/paste my very first entry here to give my starting point, and then I'll just skip ahead to today.

Copy/Paste: April 16, 2019-my first day experimenting with a lower carb woe:

I'm over 6 years into maintaining a larger weight loss. Back when I started this whole process I had to lose the weight to try and correct a new prediabetes diagnosis, and the weight loss did the trick! I lost the weight by doing JUDDD/IF and then in maintenance I've been mostly doing calorie counting/tracking. I've also experimented quite a bit with different ways of eating and I'm coming off of a mostly whole foods, plant focused diet. I do still eat sweet treats several times a week though, as well as struggle with a weakness for anything in chip or cracker form

I'm dealing with a few pounds of weight creep and I've decided to do something completely new for me and try a lower carb way of eating. Based on my previous tracking I know I average 200+ carbs a day, (mostly in the form of whole grains, fruit, starchy veggies and beans). I also eat a fairly low fat diet so I'm going to work on getting my fat intake up as well.

So here I am, at Day One: my goal today is to just explore the Diet Doctor site. I'm also going to head to the library and pick up as many low carb plan books as I can get my hands on! I'm also heading to the store to pick up some low carb veggies, to supplement what I already have at home.

Food Goals today: start tracking my net carbs, with a goal to hit 100g or less. That would be HALF of what I normally consume, so quite a big adjustment!

Exercise Goal: brisk walk

Today's weigh-in: 137.8lbs For reference-back when I first started down this path of weight management, in 2012, I was at around 180lbs.
