This weekend, keep in mind that you wonít regret what you donít eat (or drink)! It can feel really hard in the moment to decide against a second glass of wine or another piece of cake, but once the situation has passed, youíll always feel happy that you didnít give in.

Happy Friday. I started my plan yesterday and thought I would never fall asleep last night! I made a bunch of trips to the bathroom....oh the water....and I felt oh so hungry. I thought, "this diet is stupid", and I was very tempted to get up and eat a bagel. Carbs anyone?

Well I resisted the urge, fell asleep, slept great, and woke up this morning feeling fine! I had to laugh at myself! Lol...thought I was gonna up and die from starvation after one day!:-)

Great forum! Thanks for all the great info!

Can you be a little more specific? I find a bunch of flavors from that company. Which one are you looking at?

Yeah, funny what we can convince ourselves of isn't it? At least you have a sense of humor about it - you'll do great!

Congrats on getting through Day 1!

And Happy Friday everyone! I love 3 day weekends and hate 4 day work weeks!

Hooray - I have now moved out of the official BMI "Obese" category and moved into the only "Overweight" category! My BMI is now below 30%.

I know that in some sense, the official formula for the BMI is arbitrary and not always accurate, but it is still a gauge and a way to set goals and milestones.

Next BMI goal is to move into the "normal" category but that will take another 39 pounds. I have a few other goals I can make before then. Next is -100 pounds while on IP (I started low carbs on my own before IP and hit -112 today).

Sun is shining, good day!

Default Ketosis!

My coach called me last night to check in and mentioned I should be in ketosis today. I had tested yesterday and there MIGHT have been a slight trace of color, but I figured I was just talking myself into it. I tested again this morning, and it was one step above a trace. I'm officially in fat-burning mode! I already feel lighter but the scale hasn't budged yet (I'm on day 4). I'm sure it will soon though!

On a less positive note, the headache!!! I've felt fine every day so far but woke up in the middle of the night burning hot and with a headache. Managed to fall back asleep but the headache has persisted this morning, even after taking some advil. It isn't terrible, more like a slight hangover. I've been good on my salt and water intake - anything else I should try or do I just need to tough it out?

My sneak peek at my scale read another few pounds down since returning from my trip. It has been soooooo nice to be home, eat OP and fix my own food.

As a pear-shape...my pants are getting nicely loose (the ones I wore before i grew out of them). But my shirts are getting really big (lost 3 inches on my bust..waaah). Any tips to make them work while i get to desired weight? Or do i thrift shop? I need to have some professional options for my work.

Isn't that the truth! Actually had that happen this week and am so happy that I passed on the wine! And only had a couple bites of cake! The old me would've indulged then felt gross. Feeling good is so worth it!

Yay for Ketosis!!!! Maybe some coffee? Caffiene is a natural vasorestrictor. Hopefully keto gives you a burst of energy (it did me) and full feeling!
