I knew that I would!
It has been almost two full months since I went strictly keto and I cannot believe how much better I feel. The transformation began almost immediately. As I've already shared with you, the first thing I noticed was the ringing in my ears eased up dramatically. I still have it somewhat, but for the most part it leaves me alone. When it does return, the volume is low enough that I hardly notice it. HUGE relief, believe me. For anyone that deals with tinnitus you know exactly what I'm talking about.
The next thing that happened, despite the fact that I drink a gallon of water every day, was I lost 5 pounds of retained water. Also the pain in my lower back went away right along with it. It no longer hurts to bend over or twist from side to side, although I still find myself expecting it to whenever I do. My clothes fit! Instead of trying to strangle me or cut me in two. I am much more comfortable.
Amazingly, my anxiety seems to have leveled off quite a bit. I feel calmer and more relaxed these days. Of course, I'm no longer stressing and obsessing about my health all the time like I was, which is a big relief. The heart palpitations and jitteriness have eased up and I sleep a lot better at night. I can't say it has gone away, but it feels more manageable.
I have a ton more energy now and find getting things done around here is much, much easier. I'm trying to pace myself so I don't end up overdoing it, but sometimes it is really hard. I just want to go, go, go!
And the big thing that started it all off - migraines. I haven't had one since I stared keto. For me not to have a migraine in this amount of time is a record of epic proportions. Truly amazing! And I've not taken any kind of pain medication the whole time either. Not even an aspirin.
I am truly amazed at this. I can't even begin to tell you. Things are getting better and I feel more and more like a human. I getting my life back.
