Lost and gained after only 4 days

I started the induction phase 4 days ago and have weighed myself every morning. Went from 162, to 158, to 155, then 155 again, but I got on the scale this morning and I weigh 157!!!! For the first couple of days I was in light ketosis but yesterday afternoon I finally got to a darker purple on the strip and I was sooooo excited! So what happened? I'm at or under 20 every day. I'm so discouraged I don't know what to do.

Don't let this steer you off the path. It's fun to see a new (lower) number every day, but weight can fluctuate a lot each day. Maybe better you weigh once a week. We weigh once a month...always get a nice surprise.

Ooooo this is why I don't do a daily weigh in, not worth the emotional roller coaster. Why don't you just do once a week, you'd never have seen this fluctuation.

I also use the ketostix but don't worry about the colour, as long as it's even slightly changed you'll be fine. Some people don't even manage to change the colour. I'm usually between pink n purple x
