I started my Keto journey in 2013 ago when I desperately needed to get my life back. When depression basically becomes your life partner, there’s not much you can do. It takes hold and you’ve gotta fight like hell to get away. I stopped leaving the house; I ended friendships; I wanted nothing to do with anyone outside of my own bubble. Then one day I woke up a realized I wasn’t the same person anymore. I didn’t even recognize the person I had become. That’s when I knew I needed to make a change. Fast forward to the second year. I had been doing Keto on and off, just trying to get my barrings. Trial and error and all that jazz. Just kind of testing the waters to see where I was comfortable. It was always a success. But I would get too comfortable and let the pounds creep back up. After a visit with my doctor and the talk of gestational diabetes, my PCOS, increasing the dosage of my anti-depressants [for the 4th time] and my gluten allergy.. It was all a wake up call.. again..
Then after years of wanting and wishing, I was blessed with the opportunity to get a breast reduction. Struggling my whole life with DD’s on a 5’2 frame did wonders for my self esteem, as you can imagine. After consulting with my surgeon I told him that I wanted A’s. He of course laughed and said that wouldn’t be possible. At most he could give me C’s. Well that just wasn’t going to happen. I asked him what I could possibly do to get him to go smaller. He frankly said, you need to lose weight. And so, I did. I did keto for next 4 months before my scheduled surgery (I had to wait 4 months for my body to detox from being a smoker) I lost 45 pounds in those 4 months. And can happily tell you that I became the proud owner of size 34B breasts!!! It was the happiest moment of my life! haha.. Seriously!
I have since been back to keto since February 2015, and im here to tell you that I am never going back. I have dedicated my lifestyle to keto, to maintain my health and sanity. I can now tell you that my pcos symptoms are improving. I went my whole life having 2-3 periods a year, to now the last 7 months having normal, monthly ones. Which is amazing because we are currently trying to conceive. No more acid reflux, stomach issues due to gluten, IBS has improved dramatically, and all of my levels have improved. I can honestly say that Keto has given me my life back.
I have made so many amazing connections through my Instagram page and other social media platforms. The friendships I have made, along with the support I continuously receive, keeps me going and keeps me motivated. Earlier this year  I started a Kickstarter campaign in order to get my dream of starting a business off the ground. With some encouragement from my amazing friend [http://ketokarma.com/] I launched the campaign and it was a great success. My Srirachoy sauce has honestly played such a huge part in my journey. Food is my passion, and this recipe has gotten me through so many cravings and has opened the door for so many new recipes. I am so fortunate to be able to follow this dream and bring this sauce to the rest of the low carb community.
I am always around to help with advice and support for anyone new to the keto or low carb lifestyle. I can be reached via Instagram at @lazy_keto or through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org
