It's been a busy Monday for me, but I'm staying 100% OP. I'm nervous about a brunch I have to go to tomorrow. It is at one of my favorite restaurants. I'll drink coffee and hope there is a salad of some sort I can modify since the menu has been preselected for us.

Everyone seems to be off to a great start today! WTG!

Something I forgot to mention....I had my mammogram today and for the first time ever, it did not hurt! I don't know if it is because I'm so much smaller or because the fibromyalgia has calmed down from doing IP, but in the past, it has been excruciating.

Hello fellow IPers, just checking in this afternoon to see what is happening. Sounds like a good hot day back east! We are cloudy here in Idaho.

I picked up 30 baby chicks from the post office today and they are so cute! Got them all settled in and then enjoyed a nice salad. I love spring!

I hope everyone has a nice OP day!

I was thinking that one sign of ketosis is being cold alot of the time, I am that for sure. Any infor would be great, thanks.
It is best to test 1st thing in the morning, as you should be keeping hydrated the ketones will be diluted in your urine as the day goes on. If you test later in the day don't be surprised by the "trace" results.

Now my self esteem is "**** yea I look good"...hahaha....Well I am much smaller than she is and have a cute bathing suit, she has a not so cute one and she said crap I need to get on your diet cuz you are looking 'Hot'.....lol...I said I told you how to do it you just gotta follow it. She said I know but I don't have your will power, you are super woman when it comes to that stuff. I told her you don't want it bad enough or you would have it as well. We went out to dinner last night, she tagged along and got the same as me....A chef salad with Mahi Mahi (sp) with no dressing. After we were done she said GEEZE I am full...I said now you think I don't eat? she said but I would of enjoyed a shrimp po boy....I said of course you would have, I would have too but that shrimp bo boy isn't good for you and neither are the fries that come with it...she said I KNOW I KNOW....I gotta change my way of thinking.....lol...I just saw her and she said Man I feel good this morning, I don't know what it is...I told jer you had a healthy meal last night that is what it is. She said wanna go have another salad for lunch?....lol....maybe this will work after all......lol
You go girl, you have earned it. We all are very proud of your weight loss.
