An extra special reason to stick with the programme

Okay so, I started the keto 800 diet last week after falling off the fitness wagon again and returning here heavier again! I need to shift at least 3st, to get into a healthy weight range and decided to try something different. Anyway so far so good (I'm not so tired or bloated). I have my first weigh in on Wednesday and I'm hoping the scales have gone down, as I do feel lighter πŸ˜… I intend to carry on with this new way of eating, whatever happens with the scales, as one of my goals to be able to come off hypertension meds. And a keto diet does reduce blood pressure..

But today I've been given an added incentive: at the end of October it is my daughter's MA graduation πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“. I'm super proud of her completing a second degree (with a Distinction, which is the equivalent of a first class BA hons degree). She accomplished this whilst teaching full timeπŸ‘©β€πŸ’» and also growing a new human πŸ€°πŸ˜„ I assumed that she would go to the ceremony with just her hubby and their baby daughter, but she's invited her mama too πŸ₯° ... my girl doesn't care what size I am, and obviously just wants me there. But it means a lot to me to be able to fit into a nice outfit and not be worrying (at the back of my mind) that I'm letting her down in any way.

Dunno, it just feels like everything is aligning to help me stay on track: the crazy cost of living encouraging me to cook more from scratch and cut out booze; finding a diet that could help me come off medication.. and today an unexpexted invitation .. 😊
