    Hello again :) Ive been and bought myself some ketostix today from the chemist, Only thing is i dont know how to read them :ashamed0005: What colour should it be if u are in ketosis because mine is the palest pink after the negative sign

    Does this mean im in ketosis? I only ask this as i havent had much of the signs everyone is talking about ie: The bad breath, I only had headaches on the first day, no sickness nothing

    Any advice is welcome

    Any colour apart from the first means you are in ketosis, it may get darker as the week goes on but congrats your there! I never suffered any of the signs apart from my mouth feeling like Ghandi's flip flop

    So long as you are drinking the water, and only having the packs, then you pretty much have to be in keto! :)

    Hi sweet cheeks, I just bought some of those ketostix things as well.

    Just noticed your ticker, it seems like you want to lose a massive amount for someone that doesnt seem that overweight.

    Is that right?? or am i reading it wrong??

    Hi elousie :) I need to lose about 5 n a half stone to get me into the correct range for my height as im only 5"1 at the min i weigh 14st n half a pound classed as obese so i want to get to around 8 n a half stone maybe 9 i will have to see how i feel when i get down to that, when i went for my weigh in even the pharmacy looked a lil shocked at my actual weight and said 'Oh you dont look like you weigh 14st' as if to say i look like i weigh less (Which i guess is a blessing :)

    So i may feel happy at around 9 stone im just gunna ride with it and see how things go

    I got down to about 10st and 7lbs quite a few years back and wanted to lose a lil bit more so maybe ill be happy at 9st :)

    Ahhh right, the height explains it now.

    Hi Sweet Cheeks,

    I'm only 5'1" too :D I'm currently 12.12lb (from 15.5lb) and can't remember being less than 11.7 since having my first baby. I'm not really sure what to set my goal at.
    It's not fair that our ideal weights are so low cos we are shorties hehe :p

    I've never bought ketostix coz I've always figured that I must be in ketosis as I was following TFR to the letter (no cheating) & I was losing weight each week :)
