Say Hello to my Fat-Burning Friends! Keto and LCHF Success Stories.
I have fondly nicknamed my little group of Keto and LCHF friends my “FBFs”. My FAT-BURNING FRIENDS. It’s a little play on BFFs…get it? I have a group of friends (and some friends of friends) in a private group that I originally named “Sugar is the Devil!”. Because, let’s face it – SUGAR is the devil in our journey to health and wellness. This is my Keto Crew, my Keto Tribe – my Fat-Burning Friends.
Keto is so fun with a group of friends. I really hope if you are reading this that you have some supportive people in your life. If not, feel free to interact here – I’ve made some great virtual Keto friends on this journey, too!
It was a little hard at first making Keto friends. As people started noticing my significant and fast weight loss, they started asking questions. I like to joke around and got a huge kick out of faces when I told them I eat bacon every day. Yes. Really. Bacon every day! Bacon is LIFE! As each week in my Keto journey passed, I added them into my Keto Crew one by one. Bacon is a strong pull, y’all! Put some bacon on a stick and they will follow! Anyhow…now I have a lot of Keto friends and they have all blessed my life. It’s just wonderful having people in your life that truly understand the weight that obesity and metabolic dysfunctions have on your spiritual, physical, and emotional health.
The other day I hosted a luncheon with my FBFs after church. It was a fabulous time. Everyone brought a unique Keto or LCHF dish, and we all got to sample what we liked. And by sample, I mean there was so many dishes that we really did have only about a tablespoon of each thing. Gotta watch for that carb creep! We shared recipes, talked about the triumphs and trials of walking the walk in our Keto life, and had lots of laughs.
We will be meeting at least monthly to do something like this. Our focus is going to be some sort of bible study fellowship. We all agree that we want to get healthy – spiritually which leads to physically which leads to emotionally which leads to our joyful keto lives!
Our joy is overflowing, and I give these friends a lot of credit for their dedication and desire to keep chugging along to better health. I’m so proud of all of them (and many more not pictured), I wanted to share them with you! Here’s some pictures of our gathering – the food spread and some group shots.
Some of my FBFs were agreeable to share their stories! I am so proud and happy for their successes! Check out their beautiful transformations:
Linda: After starting the Keto/Intermittent Fasting lifestyle I finally lost the final 25 lbs I’d been trying to lose for years in less than 2 months effortlessly. I’m still amazed by how great I feel and how easy it was to take the weight off and keep it off!
Sandy: Since starting my Keto WOE in October 2017, I have lost 55 lbs and 40″ as of this morning. I was feeling sluggish and the onset of diabetes. That is all gone! More energy, able to walk long distances without hurting, sleeping much better and less which allows me more time to serve others. Making new friends and able to help others. Spiritually, I have more joy and peace and happiness which allows me to show others as I continue to seek Him! God is good!
Christina: 70lbs down, no more using a cane to walk, no more need for pain meds in order to sleep!
Dottie: Improved health markers include no more IBS symptoms and approximately 35lbs lost.
Aren’t those amazing transformations?!? I hope to add more stories to this page as my FBFs dare to share!
