I had weight loss surgery on December 13 2017. I weighed 344 pounds, I had high blood pressure, low thyroid, insulin dependent diabetic, depression, low back-both knees-right hip pain and neuropathy in my legs, 4 heart stents, high cholesterol, swollen body parts specially in summer, and migraines. I know I’m gonna lose weight with the surgery, that’s a given, but I was barely losing any weight and was still feeling awful especially when you have to take six shots of two different types of insulin and 14 other medications daily. So I started researching the Keto diet and stumbled upon Joanie AKA Mrs Diamond. I was just about to throw in the towel and she talked me down off the edge and explained the Keto lifestyle to me in a way that made sense and that it wasn’t a diet it was a new and better way of eating and living. From that day forward I have lost 92 pounds, do you know how close to 100 pounds I am and in 5 months. I am also off 2 off my blood pressure medications, one of my insulin’s and instead of six shots a day I’m only taking one. I’m off one of my cholesterol medications and my water pill. I feel so much better, I have more energy and don’t even crave carbs any more or sugars. I’m so glad I bumped into Keto Diamond and that she knew her shit when it came to Keto.
A little over 6 months 55lbs gone, 41 inches gone . Pre-diabetes gone, swollen ankles gone, anxiety,depression gone Life is back!!!
56 pounds 8 months. Off blood pressure meds, water pill, stomach meds, migraine meds, pain meds, fibromyalgia symptoms almost gone, Osteoarthritis pain barely there any longer, Acid Reflux gone, inflammation down, brain fog gone, I have more energy now then I've had in at least 20yrs. I can keep up with my husband, kids and grand kids now. I feel Human again like I can function like normal people on a daily basis. I no longer spend my days in pain or my nights up throwing up (from all my stomach issues). I no longer feel like a prisoner in my own body thanks to Keto I got my life back. And thanks to Joanie (Keto Diamond) and the Keto Community I love and believe in myself again because of their support and encouragement all these months. I'm a new person a stronger person and now I know I can do anything I set my mind to
I've lost 111 lbs in 1 year , but even better than that - I've lost T2 Diabetes, High BP, Edema ( for the most part) , and Arthritis ( again for the most part , sometimes its stress induced ) Blessings
I have been on keto for a little over a year and I have lost 70 lbs so far. Still pushing along. With the help of Keto, I am no longer needing to use my wheelchair. I have a hip condition that kept me very sedentary without the use of a wheelchair. Soo woo hooo

Hi, my name is Vickie and I started Keto on March 6, 2017. My start weight was 299.8 and my highest weight was 305. As of today May 20, 2018 I weigh is 177.4. My goal is to be lowest 130 and highest goal 150. I have done this naturally and doing more of a lazy keto no counting macros but trying to keep track of carbs in my head to stay at 20 net carbs at first a day then as time went I did not count carbs in my green leafy veggies. Before I started Keto I was wanting to try but I really didn’t want to give up my sweet teas and though giving up my chips would be kind of tough. I never set a date to start but for a couple months was in prayer about it and just woke up and said okay, today is the day and started cleaning out fridge and cabinets. Little over 14 months I am down 122 lbs and it’s been pretty easy. I would say don’t give up, don’t let the scale numbers control you and if you make a mistake don’t give up or beat yourself up and mostly important KEEP IT SIMPLE! I’ve not only lost weight but also getting some of my health back and coming off meds. But mostly, I give God all praise for getting me through this journey.
