  • Look at how slim my arms got okurrrr💪🏽 Okay so since I’m getting a lot of new faces I’m going to introduce myself again😚⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
My name is Chayla, I’m 19 years old, and I started Keto on August 25th, 2018.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I started at 224 pounds and now I’m currently 169 pounds 💪🏽⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
When I first started I Keto I kept my meals really simple like for breakfast it would be bacon and eggs.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Right now I’m focusing more on lifting heavy because I don’t want to get tooo skinny 😂 I like being thick and I’m working on these glutes.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
My meal guide will be out this month😘⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
HOW TO EASE INTO KETO?⁣⁣⁣
Start by cutting your carbs real low.⁣⁣⁣
Start eating more HEALTHY fats⁣.⁣⁣
Almost importantly try to AVOID sugar especially added sugar.⁣

  • “Soooo....I’ve been a little apprehensive to share this, but...
.
.
A couple of things:
.
1)I’d normally NEVER ever, ever wear an outfit like this- but it was Vegas, late at night, and I finally felt confident enough in my 31 years to do so. Im normally in courtroom attire (as Erin, the attorney) or yoga pants (literally living my best life 😂)- so this was huge for me! It was so uncomfortable-so out of my comfort zone!
.
2) This outfit (or type of outfit) will likely never happen again, but I’m glad it made an appearance because I have always wished I could be so confident enough to wear something like this. It’s unreal. I did it and I rocked it In a small Las Vegas lounge (for a small couple of hours)- and that’s all I could’ve asked for. .
.
3) there is a FULL bodysuit underneath- so, no, I’m not being inappropriate. I would never. .
.
4) I feel really beautiful and sexy and proud and never in my wildest dreams did I’d think I’d be able to pull of something like this-especially since for years I felt awful and absolutely disgusted about myself, but I did (and got a lot of compliments for it except that one women who kept trying to shame me and get me off the dance floor on multiple occasions-girl, bye). I have never ever in my life had a dress like this and for the first time in my life I thought I’d have fun and just go for it one time. Just for fun! That night was hugely out of my comfort zone (and I will likely never wear anything like it again), but I’m proud of myself for going WAY outside my comfort zone and wearing something that Dave and I loved- that made me feel confident and happy. sometimes it’s the little things- like wearing a dress you’d normally NEVER wear In a million years and owning it. AND IN THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I FELT LIKED I OWNNNNNNEEEEDDDD IT!”

  • My Father that was an alcoholic turned heroin addict (once my mother packed us up and left him) that battled Mental Health due to his upbringing. This made for a challenging childhood. My brothers were always the apple of his eye outside of the drugs. I was a gymnast throughout my youth and my father didn't attend a single competition in 7 years. My Brothers, however, I don't believe he missed a single-game! My mom would purchase VHS tapes of my Gymnastics Meets and my dad would record over them with my brothers games. This was just the beginning of my FOOD addiction and diminishing self worth. All I wanted was a small dose of the attention he bestowed upon my brothers. As an adult he started to give me his attention, sadly, it was all  abusive. In his eyes, I was obese and had nothing to offer this world. He became sober when I was 18. The problem is that he never worked on his mental health and continued with the verbal abuse! I reminded him of my Mother, the one he lost. After 13 years of sobriety, he relapsed. He would call me begging for money and that he was hungry. I purchased several grocery store gift cards and sent them to him. This made him very angry of course because he wanted money for drugs. He called me one day and said 'Noelle, your disease (morbid obesity) will kill you before my disease kills me.' He died one year later! For the next two years I battled whether or not it was a relief that I would no longer be let down for the father I desired or if I would struggle the rest of my life being let down. I spent two more years gaining another 80 lb. My father was not a fan of me as an athlete nor was he a fan of mine at 400 lb. You see, in his eyes I was worthless either way because I was a female and I reminded him of my mother. .
It took me another two years to realize and accept that he was  SICK and that I was fully worthy of the life I desired 💗

WE ARE ALL WORTHY 💗 No matter your circumstances you are WORTHY! You deserve love and you are ENOUGH!

We walked all over the San Francisco Zoo and up ALL 163 steps on 16th Ave. the mosaic tiles were gorgeous! And the view at the top... oh my! #onedayatatime #dateyourspouse #weightlossjourney #fitbit #fitby40 #twentyonefloors #goals

  • The pizza hype is still goin strong 🍕😎 this pizza was huge, super filling and 9p total. That’s v low for a pizza in general and one of this size! Made a 2 ingredient pizza crust for 6p and with the toppings it was 9p total. Sounds weird but it was v good.  Here’s what you do//
Heat oven to 475F.
Mix 1/2C self-rising flour with 1/2C 0fat Greek yogurt. Make it into a crust and cook in oven for about 4 minutes.
Next, use organic tomato sauce (no added sugar), low fat or non fat mozzarella (can buy from TJs or Safeway), and turkey pepperoni. Sprinkle garlic powder and paprika. 
Place again in oven for about 8 mins till crispyyy. Enjoy and let me know if you make it 😘

  • Here is the monthly check in! What a fun January I had. My brother and his family came over and we done some exploring! It was super great and so much fun to have the kiddies here.

Mental Health Check - So far? So good! Besides having to say goodbye to my baby sister as she turned a new page on her book, I have been laughing and smiling more. I even shut down anxiety and went out for dinner with some friends.

Pain Check - Pain is still there, not as much as last month. If I'm standing for too long or if I sit on the floor and stuff it is a struggle getting back up. If I sneeze, it pops and hurts but it has been tolerable. 
Fitness - My active wear pants arrived and boy have I used them to the max haha admittedly I need to get out and walk some more but I am still doing fitness at home.

Diet - so much water and green tea. I have also introduced chickpeas and mushrooms to my diet 😋 I'm enjoying all the vegetables I have been having as well. 
Last month I said I'd work harder but instead I kind of slacked off. I am still having some sort of progress. Slow and steady Emily, we will get there! •
