Welcome to my Keto Journey! My name is Christy, and I am 40 years old. I am mom to two wonderful children, whom I homeschool. I live in the New Orleans Metro area, and we LOVE to eat around here.
My keto journey was not one born from hopelessness, or poor health, but rather just wanting something better than what the traditional American diet had to offer. Yes, I was overweight, but happy, nonetheless. I first began trying to lose weight when I was in my 20’s. I tried everything from diet pills to not eating, to low fat, and just about everything in between. I was NOT happy with anything that I had tried.
I stumbled upon the low carb way of eating, and was very intrigued by it. It seemed very doable and so there my journey began. I found that for the first time in my life I was able to actually eat and the scale was moving down!
Low carb has turned into keto for me because I have realized that I feel the best, physically, when I’m keeping it at 20 carbs or less a day. I’m not a big tracker of every single calorie that I consume in a day, but just keep a general idea of how many carbs I am taking in.
I hope to inspire and encourage each and every one of you with recipes, meal plans, and lots of keto advice. Thanks for following along my journey. It’s going to be a great one!
