Default Ketosis and weight loss...

So, I'm just a little crazy and I've decided that I shouldn't be so obsessed with the scale.

I'm changing my mindset to it's going to be months/years not days/weeks to change into a non-obese person. But, like I said, I'm task oriented so I'm going to replace weighing everyday (or more) to just seeing if I'm in ketosis.

My question to all you LOSERS is this: Did you find you were losing if you maintained some level of ketosis or did you have to be in the 'large or dark purple" range? I need some other assurance besides the number on a scale that I'm doing the WOE "well" and "right".
TIA

To answer your question, I lost over 100 lbs and those ketosis sticks never changed color at all.
