Ketostix rant


S: 15st2lb C: 13st0lb BMI: 28.5 Loss: 2st2lb(14.15%)
Hi all - Just spent my whole lunch hour trying to get Ketostix!!! AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :mad: most pharmacies wouldn't sell them cos I was honest and told them it was VLCD but I think that is just mad - it's not like I'm asking them to endorse the diet or anything! I could understand it if I had to swallow them or shove um up my nose!! Madness - anyhoo found a lovely shop in the city that sold them to me so :massmoon: to those who wouldn't sell um and using up my whole lunch hour!!!!!! Rant over! Hope everyone is having a good day!!! Vx

I personally don't need ketostix.

When I did LL for 5 months last year I rarely showed I was in ketosis yeat hand on heart I never cheated and I lost the most out of my group.

Now I am sole sourcing on CD I won't be bothering either. I know I am doing the diet properly and I know I will go into ketosis after about 4 days.

The only thing I found the stix useful for was to seel how my water consumption was during the very hot days last summer. That won't be applicable this time as it is in winter :)

I managed to pick up some ketostix with no problem yesterday - must be my confident stride! The only thing the Pharmacist asked me was if I had used them before.

I agree with Chicken on a mission - I use mine to mainly see if I am hydrated enough rather than if I am in ketosis.

I agree with what you've both said. I've brought them to use instead of weighing myself, I'm trying to wean myself off doing that daily now I'm past the first week. I get disheartened if the scales don't move and then think about throwing in the towel so I need a comfort blanket to show me I'm loosing weight - honestly I wish sometimes I could be an adult about these things!! LOL
I sent my OH in to get them and he said they were for a diabetic so he got no arguments!

I was going to say that but then wondered if they might ask me other questions! I'll try that next time! Thx

:giggle:I never thought of that! LOL
I bought them years ago when I was doing Atkins and could never turn them pink, and now I'm doing LL and I still can't, though I'm losing tons of weight and never cheat. Grrr - stupid sticks!:sigh:

I have never used them either, the first week my lovely CDC asked me to use one to check that I was in K but I had lost 16lb so wasnt bothered anyway.

I am hung up about enough stuff never mind bits of stick going pink tee hee

Have a great week dietwise everyone

Love Love
