Good morning! Welcome to the Keto Mom page, my name is Stephanie. I have one more thing to read to you from "The Seven Decisions" by Andy Andrews. I was wrapping up the book and I read a paragraph that I thought was really great, and I want to share it with you this morning.

You can also visit, that's our website. You can check out recipes there, things on how to get started, and also the book club. There are things you can use to help you on your journey, and you can always send me a message. I would love to encourage you and help you get started, restart, or whatever help you might need.

We started this page back in June 2015, so it's been a little over seven years ago. So I can give you some advice about the things that we have learned. And here's something that I wanted to read to you today to encourage you.


"Your whole life is nothing more than a canvas of choices. What one choice could you make right now to change your life in a significant and lasting way? Know this, you are different from anyone else on planet Earth. There's never been anyone else like you and there will never be again".

"Your spirit, your thoughts, your feelings, your ability of reasoning, all these things exist collectively only in you. Your eyes are incomparable. They are windows to a soul that is also uniquely yours. A single strand of your hair contains DNA that can only be traced to you. Of the multitudes that have come from before you and the multitudes that will follow, not one of them duplicates the formula by which you are made".

"You are different from everyone else. You are special, you are chosen. The qualities, many of them rare, that make you one of a kind are no accident. Why have you been created differently and unique from everyone else? You have been made different so that you might make a difference".
๐—œ๐—ป ๐˜€๐—ผ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜† ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€, ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—น๐—ฑ.
"Every choice that you make and every action that you take matters. Every choice that you do, every choice that you do not make, every action you do not take, matters just as much".

"Millions of lives are being altered, caught up in the chain of events initiated by you every single day. You choose what chain of events you will initiate, whether you realize it or not. Understanding that you have been given everything that you need to act, and the choice is yours alone. Beginning this very moment, you will choose wisely".

"Never feel inadequate again. Do not dwell in the thought of insignificance or be content with wandering aimlessly. You are powerful. You matter. You have a choice and you are the choice. You have been chosen to make a difference at this time".

I read that this morning, and I thought it was great. I wanted to encourage you because I think oftentimes we can get so caught up in "the here", "the right now", and "the me". The Me, me, me, me, me.

I was thinking about this yesterday in the conversation about self-care. Yes, self-care is super important. Take care of yourself, making sure you're reading and doing the things that you need to do.

๐—™๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜‚๐—ฝ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ.
Why? Because when you're full, you can overflow into other people. And when you're not, then you don't have anything to give to other people.

But sometimes you can get so caught up in self-care, making sure that you're filled, that it's now become all about "YOU". Don't get so caught up in the choices that you make or the things that you're doing, it's now all about you. Because the choices that you make in your life are never just about you.

There are people watching you and you might not know it. If you have a family, your family is watching you. They're watching your actions and everything that you do. Your choices matter and they're being interwoven with other people's lives all day long.

So when you choose to pack your lunch, have goals and get focused. It might hurt your friend's feelings, but it also opens somebody else's eyes to get focused, have discipline, and do what you're doing.
๐—ฆ๐—ผ ๐—ท๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ด๐—ผ.

There are people watching you, whether you like it or not. There are people watching you and saying, "I will do this because if they can do it, I can do it".

They're looking for belief. And it's not just about you, none of it. It's your choices and your story that's going to overflow into other people's lives.
  • You are powerful

  • You matter

  • You have the choice

  • You are the choice

  • You have been chosen to make a difference in people's lives.

So we are done with this book, and I'll pick up a different book to go through from here. I hope that I encouraged you today. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. You can go to to see recipes, how to get started, and the book club. You can send me a message, I'm always here to help. Otherwise, I hope you have an incredible morning and afternoon.

We'll talk to you guys very soon. Bye!
