Here we are in Week 2 of the Keto Challenge!
Can you believe we’re already halfway through the challenge?! We’ve been LOVING all of your feedback on the ups and downs you’ve experienced so far on keto. And let us tell ya, you all are rocking it! 😍 So does your body agree that a positive change is happening?
Maybe you feel a spike in energy. Or perhaps your co-workers noticed you were on the ball during your last team meeting. We checked in with the Keto Challenge Facebook group and the Hip2Keto team to see where our keto peeps are at!
Here’s how our Keto Community on Facebook is doing with their Non-Scale Victories:
“Before Keto, I didn’t drink ANY WATER AT ALL! Literally the only water I got was in my coffee. 😬 I now drink at least 10 8 oz. glasses a day!!” – Sarah
“Migraines. I have stopped taking BOTH of my daily migraine medications and I used to get these headaches every single day. I still see my chiropractor 2-3 times a week, but getting off those meds is HUGE! The side effects of them were awful. I feel great ❤️” – Jazmine
“I mainly started keto for more energy, and I can definitely tell a difference! Only need to lose 5-8 lbs, and already down a couple.” – Kenzie
“I can finally reach my hands behind my back to unhook my bra! Been a loooong time since I could do that!” – Sara
“Haven’t cheated yet, and I went and bought a scale. I’ve been afraid to do that for years. Finally did it. I’m kind of bummed because I don’t know exactly where I started, but it’s good enough. Oh and my weight isn’t quite as bad as I thought it was.” – Dianne
“No more brain fog and no more stomach issues. My acid reflux is WAY better. I now wake up without an alarm. Things that have processed sugar in them now taste extremely sweet and disgusting.” – Ashley
The Hip2Keto team has been strong with their victories as well!
“I went down one loop in my belt. I am so excited about that. Now I don’t have to use the old worn out hole that my belt has been using for 5 years.” – Jennifer
“I am seeing some progress! I haven’t gotten on the scale but I can for sure tell something is happening because my jeans are not as tight in the waist and my tummy roll is now like half a roll! 🤣 My sugar cravings are less frequent – they still sneak up but def not as much as last week!” – Jessica
“I have noticed my sugar cravings are gone! And I mean gone! I indulged in a little keto cheesecake over the weekend and I was worried that would make me a little sugar-crazed, but luckily I’m good! Also, I can see a difference in my midsection. I’m not all bloated like usual. Also, I’m not sure if this is a victory but I have been ridiculously thirsty lately. I need water within reach at all times.” – Jenna
Fun, non-food ways to celebrate your victories:
1. Reflect on your progress.
Did you start making progress on your goal tracking printable? Even though it’s only been a couple of weeks, take pride in your accomplishments thus far. If you really want to step up your progress game, you’ll want to join our Facebook group! There are over 9,000 members who are on this journey with you and are sharing inspiring stories, tips, and tricks every day to help you take your keto lifestyle to the next level!
2. Take advantage of newfound energy and get outside!
It’s kind of starting to look like Spring, right?! Go for a run, hike, or bike ride (if your region isn’t snow-covered) to breathe in some fresh air and get your body moving. Having more energy is a wonderful side effect of keto and you can capitalize on it by getting your heart rate pumping. Exercising while on keto only elevates the health benefits further!
3. Try out a new skincare product.
We featured Cari’s keto success story here, and one of her biggest takeaways is clear skin. Enjoy an evening in with a fun new face mask or other self-care product you’ve been meaning to try. Use this time to relax and reward yourself—you’ve earned it!
Share this challenge with friends so they can have some incredible Non-Scale Victories of their Own!
