Hi, all! I just wanted to introduce myself, since I found this thread and started EMF a couple weeks ago - that's how long it took me to read through ALL the pages in this thread, lol! I pretty much stop by every day to lurk, but didn't feel right about posting until I felt caught up on everything.
I'm 28 yo, 5'8", 177 (last time I weighed, which was Friday), goal weight ~145 - 150
The macros I've been aiming for are:
F - 151
P - 63
C - 21
Cals - 1700
My ketostix turned dark purple the 3-4 times I tested last week, and I also have a blood meter (the one demuralist posted, thanks!) that should be arriving any day now. Been out of town since Sunday, so I haven't had a chance to test for ketones or weigh this week. Since I started, I've lost 5 lbs to get back down to my Primal low (some water weight, some that I gained back during Easter, blah), so that's been encouraging.
Just wanted to say thanks to Pebbles for starting this thread, and all you other encouraging and supportive ladies (and I did see a few gentlemen as well, so don't want to leave you out)! I've enjoyed following everyone's progress, and getting ideas from various N=1 experiments. Keep up the good work!
