Many people have jobs that require a lot of sitting. Sitting in front of a computer. Sitting in front of a classroom. Sitting in a car or a truck. All of this sitting means we’re not moving as much as we should be or could be, and over the years, many of us tend to pack on the pounds.
While some people have been overweight since childhood, others saw a gradual increase in weight gain. Either way, as adults with kids, many of these people look at the number on the scale one day and wonder how they got this overweight.
Losing weight is a real commitment. It usually involves a change in diet and adding exercise. We’ve seen several recent success stories for rapid weight loss with the keto diet.
One mother of four was motivated to lose weight because she wanted to make sure she would be alive and well for her children. She committed to the keto diet, and in 14 months, she dropped 230 pounds!
Another success story involves a mother of twins. She lost more than 170 pounds by following the keto diet most of the time. She cheats occasionally, but she also exercises.
The keto diet doesn’t just work for women either. One dad, Jeremiah Peterson, dropped 92 pounds in just 6 months on the keto diet.

I think my face in the second picture explains exactly what I was thinking. I even surprised myself with what I accomplished in 150 Days!!! YES, 150 DAY’S!!! Everyone has stretches of time where they don’t see a ton of change. In all areas of life. But you keep doing it. Day after day. You keep going. You don’t give up when you don’t see immediate results. Because when you trust the process… YOU WILL have days where you wake up and even surprise yourself. Live for those moments. Do the work. Never give up! Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. A Tough situation will build you so much stronger in the end. . . . #fitnesstransformation #fitness #fitnessmotivation #nevergoingback #arete #dothework #neversettle #keto #ketodiet #ketotransformation #ketogenicdiet #ketogenic #ketogeniclifestyle #ketolife #ketosis #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightlosssupport #weightlossstory #weightlossmotivation #weightlossdiary #weightlosschallenge #missoula #physique #gladiator #hardestworkerintheroom #ketofitness #theketofitnesscoach
Peterson was on a hiking trip with his three kids who were ages 9, 7 and 6. He noticed that he kept having to take breaks because he was out of breath and tired, but his kids were still full of energy. At 40 years old, he knew he should be able to keep up with his kids, and he knew his weight was holding him back.
That’s when Peterson knew something had to change, and he started by making a drastic change to his diet. He switched to the keto diet, which puts an emphasis on eating protein and vegetables and strictly limits carbs.

YOU HAVE TO FIND YOUR WHY! . One of the universal truths about human beings is that finding a clear purpose is a key to being successful in reaching any goal. . You must be clear on why it is important to you or you will quit! . Your purpose has to be personal to you. . For one person their purpose may be that they want to get fit because they just went through a divorce and lack confidence due to their appearance while for another they want to get fit to be a role model for their children so their children can grow up healthy and happy unlike they did themselves. . So before you start your fitness program ask yourself why it is important to hit your fitness goals because if you are not clear on your purpose you will likely quit when the going gets tough which it always does on the way to reaching a meaningful goal! . #why #family #children #fitnessmotivation #fitness #familyfitness #weightlosstransformation #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #transformforlife #weightlossstory #transform #weightlosssupport #bestself #trusttheprocess
