    My CDC told me to check Friday morning but i couldn't resist checking and the stick went pink, is there any particular pink before it means you are there

    And

    I sneeked on the scales this morning and i've lost between 5 and 6 pounds since tuesday

    I feel much more settled with it today and it doesn't feel hard, is this going to continue?

    Am back on today so i'll read your replies then, (that's if anyone replies lol)

    Hope you are all having a good day

    Yey Gillybean!!! As long as the stick is pink you are in ketosis!!! Should be a light shade of pink if you are well hydrated!!

    5-6 lbs down since Tuesday is great!! Keep up the good work and long may you find this diet easy!!!

    Best to test in the morning before the water dilutes the ketones.

    As Princess says the lighter pink the better.

    Excellent news your in Ketosis, as everyone has said you should find things a little easier now, despite the odd craving but it's all in our minds and we can beat the gremlins!! Well done on the loss since Tuesday, amazing!
