Meet Brenda Castillo
Current Weight Loss: -75 lbs
@ keto_wit_b & Her Transformation Story:
In 2017, I was at my heaviest 220 lbs. I felt helpless and depressed. I started to research Keto after being denied for Weight Loss Surgery by my insurance carrier. After some research, I decided to just go for it and believe in myself. November 13, 2017, was when I started my journey and was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’ve lost 75 pounds and finally found a lifestyle where I don’t feel deprived. Keto is a way of eating that I actually enjoy and have been able to stay consistent with. I am now able to say I don’t want to eat this, instead of I can’t have this, because I’m in control. One of my biggest Non-scale victories is being able to look at my body or reflection, and not hate what I see, this journey isn’t easy but absolutely worth it, I’m happier and healthier than I’ve ever been. My goal is to be healthier, lose another 30 pounds before going to maintenance.
What is the best advice you would give someone looking to transform their life on keto?
Do some research, mentally prepare yourself, remember your WHY and find your motivation. Don’t overthink it and just go for it! Be patient, trust the process and realize that change comes out of your comfort zone. Keep it basic and simple in the beginning, avoid all the keto treats and snacks, get some healthy fats, meats (protein), cheese and low carb veggies. Most importantly stay CONSISTENT, do not give up!
What is your favorite part of being keto?
I finally found a way of eating where I don’t feel restricted or like I’m dieting. This is a lifestyle and it has completely changed my relationship with food, I gained self-control and confidence along the way♥️
