It took quite a bit for me to put it all out there, but I did it! I made a before and after video to show you guys my progress on the keto diet after four months. This was WAY out of my comfort zone to film myself and put it out there on the Internet where nothing can ever be taken back. Once it’s there, it’s there. I was quite embarrassed about how big I had let myself get and even though I was proud of the progress I made in four months, I was still a bit uncomfortable in my own skin. Add a camera to the mix and it’s Awkward City. But it’s out there and the love I received from everyone was absolutely amazing!
I lost 51 pounds in four months on the keto diet. According to I Lost What?, that is the same as a twin mattress AND box spring. Holy #@?! that is eye opening! No matter how uncomfortable I was putting this video out there, I will take solace in the fact that I can safely fit in the driver’s seat instead of being tied to the roof of the car.
Here’s the transcript:
Hi there! My name is Tasha and I am the lady behind KetoGasm. It’s my blog that I started to document what I’m eating, how I’m doing, and connect with other people on the keto diet. So you’ll see recipes, pictures of my food, videos that I think are fun, as well as things that I think are helpful for other people following the keto diet.
At my heaviest, I weighed 251 pounds! It’s like, burned into my memory, that’s why it’s such a specific number. I was appalled by reading that number on the scale when I was in the doctor’s office; I was like “Aaaaagh, no that can’t be!” But it was. It was true, it was a real thing.
So, I lost about 20 pounds and then stalled out completely before starting the keto diet. Once I started, I just saw really crazy, rapid results and it just worked for me. I had done the diet before I had my daughter, after I had my daughter, got pregnant again, and now I’m doing it after I had my son. So there’s been a couple of weird periods of time where I get really big and get really skinny and I’m in my get really skinny phase right now.
I wanted to share what four months looks like on the keto diet. I’ve lost fifty pounds, over fifty pounds actually, on the keto diet. I’m really excited because fifty pounds in four months is just totally unheard of for me.
I’m wearing the same clothes today that I did in the first video I filmed of myself just to see the visual progress. And it’s really cool, because these clothes don’t fit me anymore. They’re extra large stretchy yoga pants and a large stretchy tank top… and they are baggy on me. So! Without further ado.

I still have a ways to go, I’m not at my goal weight yet. But I’m getting there and I’m excited to share. It’s a little out of my comfort zone to share about myself, so please be gentle! I’m a little shy so this is a little weird for me to film videos about myself… but anyways, whatever. I’m excited! If you’re interested in learning more about me or following my blog it’s KetoGasm.com. I hope to see you around!
