Just wanted to make a big announcement. Y'all be so proud of me.
I FINALLY ACHIEVED KETOSIS!
whizzed on a keto stick and it came out in the 80s (very dark) instantly. WOOHOO!
It only took me 8 mos to "get it right".
I hope I can keep it up a good long time and get lean & mean
I am very confused... thought ketosis was probably the easiest thing to get into? no carbs = ketosis after a short while, no?
yeah supposed to only take 48hours to achieve ketosis, im curious what you did differently that havent been doing the last 8 months?
Hooray for Ketosis - Whoooo!

Awesome, congrats! I've been trying, but still haven't managed to convince myself to put down the cauliflower, the kale, etc....I guess I could have worse problems than liking veggies too much, though.

current 338lbs 49" waist
goal 240lbs 35" waist
I'm like you in that I require a lower amount of carbs than most, I guess. I wish I could have more, but there's a very fine line that when crossed, pops me out onto the other side, so I aim to keep it to <20 to be sure. It's worth it, though - the difference in the way I feel is insane!
Congrats!! Hope it makes the hunger/cravings/temptation issues it much easier for you as it does for me. The difference in energy level is an even bigger perk!

That's great news that your BG control is getting better. As far as the ketostix, I thought that was just an indication that you were "wasting" ketones, ie passing them and not using them for energy. From what I've heard, they can indicate high levels of ketones when you first get to ketosis and then the levels will diminish as you adapt to burning ketones for energy. So don't get discouraged if the sticks indicate that you aren't "in ketosis" is what I guess I'm trying to say.
