Happy New Year!
I am actually very excited for the fresh start that a new year brings. I am NOT a person that is into the whole New Year Resolution thing, because as everyone knows they do not work. What I am super excited about is the “firsts” that I will be undertaking this year. 2016 is shaping up to be a year of big change in my world. That is both exciting and terrifying LOL.
I did a quick Facebook post yesterday on how I had hit my year end weight loss goal of 70 pounds. Thank you for all the comments and love that the post received. Many people are asking me what I am doing to lose the weight, and so I thought I would share a bit more.
In August I undertook a 90 Day Challenge to adopt a new Way of Eating. A friend of mine runs a challenge group on Facebook that inspired me to adopt a #LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) way of eating. The pounds started coming off and once I was in full ketosis, the junk food, carb and sugar cravings subsided. I eat to keep my “net carbs” (carbs – fiber) under 20 net carbs per day. That’s really all I have been doing.
I haven’t been spending money on any of the fancy potions, teas, drinks or supplements that claim to bring about major change. I am simply eating whole real foods and keeping my net carbs under 20 each day.
To follow along with how I have been doing, you can search healthy weight loss here on AHWH.
New Year, New Challenge

Although I have lost 70 pounds, I still have a long way to go before I reach my final destination. It is the first time in a really LONG time that I have even felt like I will get there. I am excited to continue on this journey to health.
