    Ok, I was whining all day over this yesterday lol I was so upset, I was ready to give up...

    Soo, I decided to bite the bullet, and go get some Ketostix....They werent so easy to get in my town...anyway...

    When I got home, just now, I weighed myself :)rolleyes: even tho I said I wouldn't)

    And apparently, I'm now 145.6lb...which means I've lost 3lb approx :D

    I also have done a Ketostix and it showed a deep purple!!

    I know this probably means I'm dehydrated, but I know why because I deliberatly refrained from drinking water all morning so that it wouldn't affect the reading.

    Now I personally, think this weight loss is down to the fact I haven't drank so much today and is water weight. BUT not all of it because I have had 3 coffees. So at least some of it MUST be fat lol.

    Well, I deffo haven't had the overall sense of well being or energy burst...but maybe that will come in time.

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone and share my news! Its the first time I've ever done this so its exciting to me lol :p

    dehydration has nothing to do with the colour. Mine are pale in the mornings and deeper in the evening, because during the day I eat food with fat. Ketosis shows you are burning fat. well done.

    Yes, I know. It's when your body is burning fat not carbs, but the water is really supposed to help get rid of excess fluid :D

    Well, since yesterday, I've been DEAD thirsty again! So obviously somethings happening lol!

    It seems no matter HOW much I drink, my thirst wont be quenched and common sense tells me that if you're drinking litres of water then you must be hydrated. And yet my ketostix are still coming up maroon, all the time. So yes, it MUST be the dietry and body fat I'm burning, like you said. And I did have a REALLY fat laden meal for dinner last night lol :D

    I know, I cant stop!!

    In fact- I did an experiment. I weighed myself before a wee and after...turns out I'm losing like 1lb - 1lb 1/2 half everytime I go to the bathroom!! One way of doing it! lol

    But a good thing is, after a bathroom break, I'm consistantly maintaining a 2 1/2lb weigh loss !:happy036:

    Now I'm gonna stop weighing in!

    LOl - I'm so glad you've hit the wee excited phase! lol. I'm out of stix but I'm going to buy more -yeah it's best not to rely on them because they can give different readings due to a range of reasons but they can help give a wee boost when you look and know that every move you make is another tiny bit of fat shifting its way off! Well done, and keep it up! :)

    Well, I think since I got a purple on the stix, regardless of how deep it is, it just gave me that 'boost'!! Like telling me I'm doing it right!

    I'm not gonna pay too much attention to the colour, any purple's fine with me as long as its not BEIGE!! lol

    Thanks :))

    Oh god! I think I've got that to look forward too!! BEIGE ALERTS!!

    But you are right! Keep at it and you will get there!

    I had to phone around half a dozen chemist b4 I found one with these in stock..Asda came up trumps! I think I will keep using them, because if you do get a beige, at least you can alter a few things to get back to it!

    FX yours will come soon!!
