Here we are two weeks into the New Year! I hope you have been enjoying this fresh start as much as I have been! As I mentioned in a previous post on January 1st, my entire family joined me on my keto journey, and it has been such a wonderful experience. The first time my husband joined me on keto it was a miserable experience. When he told me he wanted to do it, I tried to make sure he was doing it for him, and honestly, I’m still not sure why he joined me the first time around. Then at the end of this year my son got hurt on a bike ramp and cut his leg, when they weighed him in the ER he was 142 pounds. He’s eleven, yes eleven years old and 142 pounds. I think that was the wake-up call my husband needed.
You see we have a hard time singling out my son because our other three children don’t struggle with weight although I’m sure internally they have been building up fat around their organs their entire lives. Not only that, but I believe that the keto lifestyle is the lifestyle that everyone needs to live to be healthy. I don’t look at it as a weight loss plan or a way to stay thin, for me, keto is the way our bodies were designed to run. So I knew that if we were going to put my son on keto everyone in the family needed to do it as well.
Keto Bacon and Egg Florentine Muffins Recipe:
We don’t talk about going off of keto when my son reaches his goal weight because I am at my goal weight and I never plan on going back to eating carbs and sugar. I don’t want that for my family either. Of course, I can’t control what my children choose to do when they are adults, but my hope is that they will understand that this lifestyle is what keeps them healthy. There is no doubt in my mind that if my son chooses to leave this lifestyle, he will most likely gain a lot of weight and end up with diabetes. It is a part of his family history, and I believe he is genetically dispositioned to have hormonal imbalances and weight issues if he doesn’t take care of his body. While the rest of my children would likely be skinny on the outside and fat on the inside because they are more like their dad.
My husband has always been skinny and now that he’s reached his thirties the weight is slowly being packed on, but only in his belly. I attribute this to the fat on the inside. With the amount of Mountain Dew he was drinking each day (pretty much his entire life), I’m sure his body has been paying the price. I think only now are we finally able to see the effects of years of sugar addiction. I would love to get him under an MRI to prove that theory.
Anyway, I am happy to report that after a week of the keto diet my family members are all in continued ketosis, and they all dropped some weight the first week. As we near the end of week 2, I have started noticing changes in my youngest son’s clothes and his face is beginning to slim down. I can’t tell you how excited I am for him. He has always been a big boy (that’s him in the picture above at 14 months old), and I can’t wait to see him at a healthy weight!
