I've been under the weather all week, dealing with the big c (started talking body balance tea) plus tom is due in the next day or 2....*cross your fingers *

I've stayed on the program, no cheats, even with Easter lol but I still worry tomorrow... Bleach.

Oh yea. Add a bit of Easter ham sodium and things will be real interesting. I'm not too worried; it'll turn around when the body gets settled again.

Yup, me too. :(.
For Easter lunch had a little ham with my broccoli and mashed cauliflower. STAYED AWAY FROM ALL THE MnM's AND REESE'S EGGS!!!!

Up a half this morning. Figures that it's officially my WI day today.....GRRRR!
Oh well, tomorrow the scale will be nicer! ;).

Was hoping my scale was going to say "April Fools" when I jumped off....lol!!! :dizzy:

Even if the number's not what you want tomorrow, just stick with it, and it'll all even out. Next week's number will be even better!!

I cheated a bit last night... Ate ham, cheese, a glass of wine...stayed away from the serious carbs...bread potatoes stuffing etc. I was up half a pound this am but still lost 4.4 this week as today was weigh in. I wouldn't recommend cheating often and not sure if it will catch up with me this week but will see. How would I tell if I am out of Ketosis? I feel good...didn't really eat carbs...just fat.

Weigh in and see. Cheats will catch up to you. But life goes on.

I did weigh in. There was no cheats. Confused by your message?

Pee on a ketostix that is how you can tell if u kicked yourself out of ketosis.

Thanks everyone for advice, I haven't seen the ketosis for sale here but it's been two days and still feeling good and lost 2 pounds since Sunday ( the day of cheat). I wouldn't make it a regular thing though... T much to risk

Actually if you are drinking enough water, ketostix will not register anything. They aren't accurate for the purposes of IP/dietary ketosis.

The purpose of ketosis is to keep cravings under control that are otherwise stimulated by carbs and to encourage fat loss while preserving muscle. It has nothing to do with weight loss per se.

Also, I have a problem with the notion of "cheating". Since at some point in the future everybody will likely want to eat differently. So, you will need to be able to deal with drinking a glass of wine and not totally loose it and put back the pounds you just starved off. I think it is not cheating if one learns to enjoy something with boundaries and then just goes back dieting. For me this is learning to keep your weight under control. Permanently. While still enjoying life. If one cannot achieve this kind of control, it does not matter whether one looses 10 lbs a week.
