Introducing the “new”!

The day is finally here! My husband, Mick and I have been working hard to bring this new and improved blog to life, and I’m so excited to share it with all of you!

First things first, the new logo! In the past three years the symbolism of the lotus flower has really struck a chord with me. Lotus flowers grow from muddy waters, yet rise above, and blossom. This is a beautiful reminder that regardless of the “muddy” or difficult times in our lives, we all have the ability to grow, rise above and blossom.

With that in mind, I really feel like this is the perfect symbol for the new logo. My hope and dreams for this blog is to help and encourage as many people as possible. To show people that it’s truly never too late to change your life.


What am I going to be writing about?

Keto: I’ll be sharing all of the things I’ve learned over the last three years, in an easy to understand format. Helpful tips, recommendations, articles, and more.

Life: I love to write about life, change, struggles, positivity, and growth. I’ve had my fair share of struggles, but who hasn’t? I think it’s so important that we all talk about the real and raw emotions of life. No one should ever have to feel alone, or struggle in silence. We are all truly more alike than we are different.

Recipes: After writing Simply Keto, I’ve developed a hobby for creating easy and delicious low-carb recipes. Whenever I create a new recipe, I will share it here under the recipe tab, found in the top homepage menu.

YouTube: Although this is technically separate from the blog, I will be posting all of my upcoming YouTube videos here. I plan on filming a variety of videos on things like; keto topics/tips, recipe videos, grocery hauls, weight-loss ups and downs, and more.

Lastly, I want to thank all of  you for your continued support throughout the last three years. I feel so honored and humbled by all of your kind words, messages, comments, and encouragement.

Let me know in the comments below what you think about the new logo and blog design!

I hope you love it!

Lots of love,

Week 75-76 Update

Just wanted to say hi, and let you all know that I’m alive and well! If you follow me on social media then you know that my videos are delayed due to a terrible stomach bug that spread through our house! Thankfully we are all starting to feel better, and I will be posting a YouTube video this weekend! Sorry for the delay, and as always, thank you for all of the love and support!

A quick update:

My 5k was fantastic, and besides the stomach bug, I’m feeling GREAT mentally and physically! My last weigh-in was 181.8, so that’s down a total of 107.2 lbs so far.

I have a goal to lose 6 more pounds before my skin removal surgery in December. I’m excited, and nervous for this next chapter in my life. I’ve been doing A LOT of research, and I feel like this is the right choice for me. Please know that not everyone chooses to get skin removal surgery, and that’s perfectly okay too.

Remember to always do what works for you! Often times we try so hard to do what someone else did, or what others think we should do, but the truth is that your lifestyle change will be unique to your schedule, likes/dislikes, ideology, and budget. Be yourself, be consistent and be kind to yourself, and others! We are all different, and that should be celebrated!

Love to you all!
