How To Stick To Keto Diet When Eating Out

Last month we discussed supplements to take while on the keto diet to make sure you feel on top of your game. Something equally important to focus on is tracking your weight loss results.

Before you start out on any weight loss journey, it is key to take note of where you start.

Pick yourself up a scale and record your weight. It doesn’t matter when you “weigh in” but you want to make sure that your clothing (or lack of) and the time of day that you weigh is the same every time. You can weigh in daily, weekly, or monthly. Note that weight loss will never be linear and fluctuations are going to occur, regardless of your effort and commitment. It can be helpful to set weight loss goals by future date, for example, weigh 210 lbs by Christmas and 199 lbs by Valentine’s day. Setting a date makes your goals more achievable.

A second popular form of tracking is body measurements. Purchase a measuring tape and record measurements from around your body. Measure a few spots like your chest, waist, and hips. You can also add additional body measurements like your neck, bicep, thigh, or calf. Make sure to clearly write the measurements down and store them in a safe place for future reference. You can even snap a photo with your phone of the measurements, in case you misplace the paper. Take your measurements every month or quarterly. Measurements are key motivators especially when your weight stays at the same number for a little while. Also, note your beginning clothing sizes so you can track your progress.

You will never regret having photos of yourself at the beginning of your weight loss journey. Being able to visually compare changes in your body and clothing is priceless. It can also be extremely motivating to see how much your body is changing over time. Once you lose the excess weight, you can also refer back to your beginning pictures and remember where you came from. Seeing where you were can be motivation enough to maintain your weight loss results and help keep you on track.
