Hello I’m Micky. I was always an active girl. I would work out and watch what I eat. I always had low blood pressure and was in pretty good health. Then suddenly, I started to slowly gain weight. I had a cyst on my ovary which was painful and the doctor told me to avoid exercise in order for the cyst to not burst. Well when I stopped the physical activity I began to gain weight. I’m now up to 235 at 5’7”. I was vegan during this time I gain weight and found out the excessive carbs were a contributor to my current issues.
I’m happy with myself but I know i can be better. I’m very competitive and yet I let this get away from me which is usually not me. I want to the best Micky in all aspects of my life which includes my long term health.
Long Term and Short Term Goals:
Long term goals for me were to get from BMI Obese to BMI “Normal”
Short term goals right now are to get to 145-155lb goal weight range
What are some struggles you face or you have faced in the past
I can be an introvert and not participate in activities. I have made a concerted effort to get out there and show myself more. I sometimes shy away and hibernate, especially in the winter months. I have a very stressful job and bad sleep pattern which has affected my ability to lose weight.
** What is your game plan?**
I am not new to fasting. I have practiced intermittent fasting for many years. I have also completed a 21 day water only fast about 5 years ago but have been having the hardest time beginning it again and sticking with it. I plan on kicking off a 21 day water fast and then moving into keto to stay in autophagy while eating food. Then after a week of refeeding, I will enter a shorter 14 day water fast, then continue keto until hitting my goal weight.
How do I feel right now?
I’m excited to stay compliant and held accountable. I’m not giving up this time. I can do this!
How will I feel once I achieve my goal?
I will feel invincible. I can do anything I set my mind to.
The most important thing is my physical and mental health. I can do anything I set my mind to achieve.
