NOW trying to think what it could have been and the ONLY thing I can think of is my water intake has dropped in the past two days. I have a question. Does the weight today represent what we did yesterday, or the day before? I know Carla mentioned something about ketone results are 24 hrs after what we ate or didn't eat??? did I understand that right? and is it possible, that the lower water intake could show up as a 1.5 GAIN?
The ketone results don't have much to do with fluid gain. Yes, because of the way food effects us, you could show a gain or a loss because of something that happened a day or more before. In this case, you are probably experiencing fluid gain, cycle changes, or some other bodily function that will self correct.

If anyone has any ideas on how to handle this, please post it. I'm having a hard time.
Have a wonderful day!

Be strong. Remember those goodies are for the kids. Have a peach mango drink, a chocolate drink, a bar- cut in small bite pieces, or some chocolate soy puffs. Put it down and walk away for awhile. Just create some distance between you and the sweets. I think smelling it for too long makes us crave. Ask a friend or neighbor to help you out by coming and visiting or helping you create the bags. It will go faster and have more distractions so you'll be less likely to indulge.

Hey Everyone!

Sorry I haven't been on very much. I am trying to get many things done and get out of here for the holidays.

I did make time to go to the doctor yesterday. It was followup for my blood work I had run last week. I haven't had anything done for about 4 months, since shortly after taking a break from the program.

SO....... I HAVE AMAZING results!

I started the program with the start of hypothyroidism, indications of growing hypoglycemia, normal but low cholesterol, and high normal blood pressure, low cortisol indicating fatigued adrenals, acid reflux, and mild sleep apnea. During the program, my thyroid showed improvement, blood sugar seemed to be looking more normal, no change to adrenals, acid reflux cleared and apnea cleared. My cholesterol actually went crazy LOW.

At the end of 8 months the rest had stayed the same but, my thyroid had begun to approach normal.

SO, yesterday, the results were great!!!

I now have NORMAL thyroid! Yes!!! Even a high normal activity. Normal is between 1 and 2 in tsh reading. My tsh is now 1.35. I WAS 3.45 just a year ago!! I really wasn't sure what it would take to improve my thyroid and I didn't know that the diet would help. It seems to have done just that in my case.

My blood sugar and a1c indicate normal and no longer low blood sugar.

I do have low blood pressure still but, that runs in my family for generations.

I have normal adrenal function.

AND, my cholesterol is back to normal!!

Total cholesterol is 138, HDL is 70, Triglycerides are 35, and LDL is 33.

My mouth (teeth and gums are normal again) and my hair is growing back in.

My doctor is so excited about the results she said Everything looks "text book ideal". I really feel great now too.

It is so nice to go through the program, see the weight come off and, see all the health issues I have been wondering about for 20 years change for the better!

Seeing how well my body rebounded after the program, I am looking forward to going through the process again. I have complete confidence in how well this program works short and long term!

Of all the great posts today, this is the very best. And the bit about the thyroid. . .that's just over the moon.* And it couldn't happen to a nicer person and the results couldn't come at a better time. Merry Christmas. Mele Kalikimaka.

*Edit: No cow implied, not even a skinny one. Ho, ho, ho.

IP & life is good!

That's awesome news, Carla!

I saw my new doctor yesterday and will be doing some hormone testing, including thyroid, over the next couple of weeks. I'm anxious to see the results in numbers though I think I already know how things are going in general.
