    Morning everyone.

    Well as you know, yesterday was Day 1. It was tough but I'm pleased to say i made it, no cheating and took on 8 and a half pints of water :talk017:

    I have a question though, last night at work I started to become aware of a really yack taste in my mouth. Also nearing the end of my shift i suddenly realised I didn't actually feel hungry (despite having felt ravenous all day)
    So on a hunch, i tested my wee when i got home at a 3.30am, and lo & behold, the Ketostick turned pink :eek:

    I wasn't expecting Ketosis til at least day 3, so is it possible this early? I feel really different today too, yesterday i was so hungry & headachey, this morning i just feel.....good :) (although there's nothing good about my breath right now :sign0137:)
    Maybe its psychological? I'm not sure whether the fact that my day is quite long compared with the average, around 21 hours on the days i'm working (3hours sleep a night sucks lol), is having some sort of weird effect? :confused:

    Dunno just wondering out loud & seeking your thoughts & wisdom :D

    Blimey! I'm no expert but if the tester says you are in ketosis, then you must be in ketosis. Fantastic!

    What on earth do you do that requires you to work 21 hours in one go? Surely that must break employment legislation?

    It didnt take me long to slip in to ketosis either by morning of day 2 I think.... Hunger pangs went completely - BUT wrap up as the meaning of COLD takes on a whole new dimension xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Well done, I'm of the 4th day of a restart (after a very naughty Sunday) and I've not cheated once (makes a change) however I tested this morning and nothing - stick stayed the same and yet I'm freezing. Maybe the sticks are too old I've had them since October.

    That's great Karen:D

    Yesterday was my day 1 too (re-start:eek:) and I have a yucky taste in my mouth so maybe I am there with you:D I will test when I get home and let you know.

    Good luck with this first week - I can't wait to see your results:)

    Take Care

    Hi Karen

    You are probably one of those lucky people (like me) who can go into Ketosois really quickly but be warned you can come out of it again just as quick! :rolleyes:

    I see you are from Norfolk (me too). Which Councillor do you go to?

    You have roughly the same to loose as me so I shall be looking to see how you are doing to give me encouragement to stick at it this time.

    I lost 6 1/2 stone with LL 4 years ago but slowly it has mostly gone on again. I have toying with CD for about a year but last week went to a new Councillor and have stuck to SS for nearly a whole week now. My weigh in is tomorrow so fingers crossed for a good loss. ;)

    Hi! Yes this thought did occur to me about an hour or so ago - double edged sword maybe lol.

    I'm with Dan Reynolds - i'm in the Swaffahm area. How about you?

    Keeping everything crossed for your weigh in tomorrow x

    Yeah the stick turned pink!:p

    No wonder I'm not hungry and I'm so cold.

    Hope you are doing okay on day 2, I'm off out to take the dog for a quick walk.

    Take care
