3-month weight loss results

Nothing dramatic, just slow-and-steady, about 1.5 lb deficit a week.

-16.4 lbs (about 7.4 kgs) so far

I have been kinda-sorta doing the keto diet. Haven’t been able to stick with it, but the reason I’m consistently losing weight is I’m in a calorie deficit. I’ve been eating fewer calories and exercising more.

The reason I’m able to consume fewer calories, which I’d been unable to before, is because my doctor has me injecting myself with an increasing dosage of semaglutide. This has eliminated my desire to binge eat. Overall, my diet has been healthier, but not supremely great.

Here’s the thing (I love using this phrase): this is what is working for me. This is what’s sustainable. I can continue on like this, though I think I need to consume fewer processed foods and need to start weight training.

Stopped binge eating ✅

Eating healthier ✅

Exercising more ✅

Losing weight ✅

Stopped beating myself up over not losing weight fast enough ❌

For goodness sakes, Quix, you are doing the things you need to be doing. For the most part. Overall. And you know yourself, if you become strict and obsessive you will crash and burn.

Anyway, it feels good to see the scale go in a downward direction every few days.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 7 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write about my mental health journey with bipolar disorder, my loss of faith (deconversion), parenting teens, reading, exercise/health, work-life, and my marriage separation/divorce.
