3 Most Asked Questions About My Weight Loss

People are dying to know about my 150+ lb weight loss

October 5, 2019

So, It’s been a while since I blogged…..sorry about that people!  Summer is a really busy season for us here at the radio station and it seems to fly by without me even blinking an eye!

As you probably know, I lost 154 pounds from July 2018-July 2019 by going to Medical WeightLoss & Wellness in Oak Creek and Racine and following their plan for the Keto diet.

Well, since I last blogged, I went into MAINTENANCE!!!  WOOHOO!!!  I hit my goal around the beginning of July (you can see me celebrating with the lovely gals at Medical WeightLoss & Wellness celebrating the day I hit it in the above pic) and have been continuing on with the Keto lifestyle since then.  I still try to go into Medical WeightLoss & Wellness at least every two weeks to check-in and get my Vitamin B shot, but otherwise, I just keep on with the lifestyle and add things in gradually.

I still have no desire to “CHEAT” as some would say (and I get asked that A LOT - lol) because I’ve found plenty of replacements for the foods I used to love.  When I want something sweet, I grab a chef Kayla dessert or make myself a Chocolate Shake from the Medical WeightLoss & Wellness cookbook (yes anyone can stop in there and buy a cookbook!)… which includes ingredients of cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, and Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup.

I’ve gone from a size 24 to a size 8!  Can you believe that?!  I still can’t believe it when I’m shopping for clothes. I was just at Bayshore Town Center the other day and was blown away when I fit into a size 8... I didn't know I was capable of that!  It's a pretty good feeling!

Ok, so let me just get to the good stuff, which is me answering all the questions I get on a regular basis about my weight loss.

This idea to blog about this came after my trainer at Bridgewater Performance, Keith Kahlfeldt, told me he gets the SAME THREE QUESTIONS over and over about me.  Sooooo…I’m here to finally answer those and other questions I get regularly!

So here are the 3 Keith gets all the time…..

1. How many times a week do I work out?  2 days a week

2. Do I do a lot of cardio?  Nope.  Never.  I do weight training.  Strong is the new skinny remember!

3. Do I take supplements?  Nope.  I take a multivitamin but that’s about it.  I don’t even do protein shakes!  Lol!

So there ya go!  There are the 3 questions my trainer always gets asked.  Now, here are a few more questions I get when I meet people….

1. Would you ever slowly incorporate carbs back into your diet?  Surprise!  I already eat carbs!  Lol!  I eat veggies and fruits for carbs.  So they never really left.  I just dropped all the bad carbs!  Bread, flour, etc….

2. What do you drink for alcohol? I usually stick with vodka/club and a few limes, but also like to dabble with the seltzer drinks out there!  You know, White Claw, Press, Henry’s, etc… but ya gotta be careful with those because if you drink like a fish they can add up!  Lol!

3. Do you ever have cheat days?  No.  This was a lifestyle change for me.  I have an addiction to food and it's a slippery slope.  One slice of pizza could turn into a disaster for me!  Lol!  The good news is that I have learned this about myself through my journey.

4. How do you manage your diet when eating out?  Great question.  And I haven’t found it hard at all.  I eat a lot of chicken wings and salad… lol... but the good news is I love those things!  No matter where you are, you can always find an option.  Going out for Mexican?  Get nachos with lettuce on the bottom.  Want pizza?  Eat off the toppings.  Yes, I do that.  LOL!  Feel like steak?  That’s easy… I just grab a steak from Outback with broccoli and a side salad as my two sides.  There is always something and I’m always full!

5. Where do you work out again?  I go to Bridgewater Performance in Franklin.  I love it there!  Totally different gym experience than I’ve ever had.  And the changes I have seen in my body when it comes to toning are unreal!

6. How do you stay motivated?  I’m not really sure what the exact answer is to this one and I get it a lot, but I would have to say that I feel SO good… I don’t want that to end!  So I just keep going and going… but don’t get me wrong, just because I haven’t had any setbacks (YET) doesn’t mean you won’t or can’t… it’s fine.  We all struggle. Don’t be ashamed or embarrassed… we all do it!  Just own it and get back up.  People will respect you more for that.  Just saying.

Alright, I hope that helps with some of the questions you wanted answered!  I’ll be sure to keep blogging more and keeping you updated!  Until next time……
