    Hi Everyone,

    I've been SSing for 6 days now (well 10, but I cheated a bit and had Turkey the first few days!!), and I've been really good (since then!)...nothing has touched my lips that shouldn't but I just don't seem to be going into Ketosis. I tested this morning and not even a hint of pink, it's doing my head in! I'm losing weight and I'm not that hungry, but that stupid stick won't go pink!!!

    Mentally it's starting to effect me and I'm starting to think what's the point if I'm not in Ketosis. I'm determined to lose 2 stone before Christmas, as the scales already show 12lbs but I can't cope with not going into Ketosis!

    First time I did CC SS I went in on the 3rd day no probs, so why can't I now?

    I'm trying to stick with it, but I'm annoyed! :mad:

    Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks x

    Hi darling, i have had the same problem in the past, for me it seems to depend what brand of sticks I use, and what time of day I test, one day Iam in ketosis and the next Iam not, I spoke to my cdc and she simply advised me to stop testing myself, because it was affecting me like mad, my confidence in the diet I mean

    I really wouldn't worry about it too much. You will lose weight regardless of ketosis, simply because of the very low amount of calories you are on. Turkey will certainly not prevent ketosis. Stick at it, you will still get the results you want.

    Years ago when I did LL a lady in my group never went into urine ketosis, it only affected her breath! And she lost a lot of weight.

    I have stopped testing mine now, instead of weighing i was wee'ing on a stick!!

    Your weight loss is just incredible Bye bye.. don't let this affect it x

    Thanks everyone, I totally needed a little bit of support. It's just hard thinking I'm not in Ketosis. I'm going to keep going until I'm at goal this time! x

    my CDC said that even if you are not in ketosis and still flowwoing the site - you will lose weight. I believe her becuase I went from SS+ to CD1000 (cos I hate shakes, they make me heave) and that was in week three and the weight is dripping off me.
