Back for attempt number……….Er…….. too many to count. Just like those other times this time is different and its going to work this time. The reality this time is those words are actually true. In the past when deciding to make changes in my life, loose weight and be the best me I could be I made vague statements like “I’m gonna eat healthier” or I’m gonna eat smaller portions”. The difference this time I’m actually following a a diet. A real diet, not just one I made up in my head with those “healthy foods” I’ve been told I’ve needed to eat for ages, AKA the food pyramid.
Starting November 26th I began eating what they call the keto lifestyle. I’ll get into more details on keto in future posts but I will say since the 1st day I have lost about 20 lbs and really feeling great. Energy is up, appetite is down and overall health is improving.
Today’s post is just going to be short and to the point. I wanted to let you know I’m back on the healthy living train and back to the blog (I know someone of you actually missed it). So please look for my future posts and possibly videos. So you don’t miss any posts please join my Facebook page From Chunk to Chuck

Okay it’s time for a confession and an admission……
I’ve been sick with a cold, and when I’m sick I turn into a giant baby!! When this happens all rational behaviour and thinking ends and I generally end up giving into a cravings and binge eat. Well this time I didn’t really go too far overboard, but I did eat a chocolate bar for the first time in well over a month. Admittedly it was fantastic! Mmmmm the chocolatley goodness was great. I truly enjoyed it and when it was over a funny thing happened…… NOTHING! Nothing happened. There was no guilt from eating it. I didn’t turn into a chocolate craving monster eating every ounce of chocolate I saw. I didn’t unravel all the hard work I’ve been putting in trying to loose this weight and getting in better health. I guess the point I’m trying to make is things are okay in moderation. A chocolate bar every once in a while isn’t a terrible thing, although I do not foresee me eating one for a bit, but I do see a big piece of Chocolate cake in my future since my birthday is April 24th and my wife’s is the 25th.
I also wanted to mention even though I’ve been sick with this cold I have still been going to the gym for a swim and or aquafit classes and feeling great! I truly feel like I’m getting back to my old self again, but with more knowledge and self awareness ! Thanks for all the support.
Good luck and keep your head up!
