  • The new dairy free cream cheese recipe that i posted in the recipe group has a recipe to use it as a frosting at the bottom of the page

    Also there is a blog called healthy indulgences (I think) that is all about sugar free and i think grain free desserts though probably not low carb

              • Ok.. time finally to reflect on yesterday. I am happy to say as of now my headache is gone. It could have been a migraine. I seldom get them but one of the worst I had got me a CT scan because my fingers and hand was numb. So I am chalking this up to, thats what it probably was.. who knows. All that matters is I feel better now. 7 days clean!! Today is #8!

                Yesterday's stats:
                Totals
                cal-1,596

                c-9
                2%
                146
                f-82%
                p-64
                16%

                Oh yeah... sitting pretty there I think! I am waiting for ketosis!! I will check AGAIN tomorrow but I would think with my macros where they are I should have hit it by now. Unless, my body was just THAT out of whack. Question: When you hit ketosis are you warm or cold? I am often COLD. It would be lovely if it meant I was losing. As to how I am feeling?? I felt thinner yesterday. No other way to explain it, it was a different feeling. My clothes are getting back to being a little on the large side but I can go baggy for a while.

                I am still not walking but as I type this, I am remembering Chris's goal to get up and walk at work. So.. as I sign off, I am taking a stroll.

                • Yay! Past the one week mark!

                  I had a headache today with the characteristics of a migraine. I went into an office where the window was open and the light was intense. I almost cried.

                  • Woo hoo, Karin, look at you go.

                    I don't know about temp - I'm usually 10-20 degrees than the family. It took me many days to get back into ketosis. AT least 3-4. And then a few days after that to start losing. You're doing good. Just hang in there.....

                    Sorry about the headaches

                    • DH put new light bulbs in the living room that he says are brighter. They shine blue like those old fluorescents. I cannot sit in there very long, it bothers my head, not quite to headache, but uncomfortable. I am going to switch them to LED's as soon as I can find the ones I am looking for.

                      • Ok.. if having a headache was not enough.. mom asked me to drive after work yesterday. Getting into her car I wacked my head and have a wicked bruise on my forehead this morning. How could I be so clumsy??? Good grief.. DD (so sweet) put powder on it to try and cover it up. Talk about insult to injury. THEN, this morning as I am doing my hair, I am like, wow.. look at my rosey cheeks! No make up needed today. I must be getting healthy. Then mom says when she picks me up, you probably have a low grade fever from hitting your head.. hopes??? DASHED!

                        I would like to share the UNBELIEVABLY HARD IMPULSE I had to resist weighing myself this morning. I didn't (Valentines Day is the day). This came after I POAS for ketosis and it said AGAIN, negative. How can I still not be in ketosis?? I tried on a pair of jeans I can not fit into.. today I ALMOST got it over my ass!

                        Spot on day of eating!! Got all my macros! You can not see it yet because I have not sunk the kindle I recorded dinner on but I will do that this after noon.

                        • ketostix are notoriously inaccurate, that is how. Are they new? They expire after they have been opened, in a very short period of time. Also the amount of liquid you take in could effect whether or not the stick changes color. ie, the ketones effect can get watered down.

                          • Yep. I've read that the only real true measure is the blood test. I've considered going there, but the testing strips are beyond expensive. If I don't lose weight this month...then maybe.

                            • I am the same way. I have a page where I can buy them online already bookmarked on my home computer. I will have to do some research as to how many of those strips you actually use. They come 10 to a pack.

                              • I am thinking I will need this as well. I think my mom and I are going to go in together. Its not the meter that is the expensive part from what I understand.

                                Have to say, I sure have my daughter fooled- she thinks I am this awesome baker. Ummmm, yeah.. I do not keep traditional baking ingredients in the house. I am a wiz-bang with a mix or a can though! So as I try and transition Lily off of the sugar and grains, I want to use whats left in the house. I made "apple pies" with biscuits and apples last night.
