I think the latter part of your sentence is what makes this so difficult at times. The body changes it's mind about what it wants/needs and what works/doesn't work.

I didn't get my protein in today, and am not at all in the mood to eat at 7:20 PM, but thinking I should get in a protein shake with water for the protein I seem to need (and tomorrow is weight lifting day). But I just don't want to. Guess this will be a good way to see if it's the protein that I really need when I test for ketones tomorrow.

Today:

2079 calories (an all time high for me with previously being 1950 or so!)
203.3 fat (former high was 190! and I lost big time the next day)
5.4 total carbs
53.0 protein

88/11/1 What a strange number!!!! We'll see what the ketone strip says.

Getting carbs from veggies is paramount- I love veggies and frankly, not having them as much is the hardest part of this for me. LOL I can do w/ out bread, crackers, cookies etc- but its just WRONG to have to limit veggies- LOL

Thank you for posting this and CONGRATULATIONS on your success.

Thank you to everyone who put their inspirational stories on here. It helps me to keep going during the weeks I don't lose. Kristen in particular - your before picture/weight is nearly the mirror of mine, and you're at the weight I want to be. Before, I couldn't even wrap my mind around how I'd look at 145 lbs.

I'm still fairly new to NK, but having pretty good success with it. I had been low-carbing for a year and losing less weight each month until I was turtling for the last 6 months, when I came across Kristen's thread on NK. I started it in October at 191.5 lbs. and am down to 185.5 lbs. this morning.

3 lbs. a month isn't fast, but it's progress. I'm another in the crowd who has several weeks per month where nothing moves, and then I'll lose 2 lbs. in a week. (Bloody hormones...) Tracking the ketones and my weight loss on a graph has helped me keep my head in the game when nothing seems to be moving.

I went clothes shopping yesterday, and was able to get a clearer picture of my progress (gotta love those 3-way mirrors). I was looking at myself in a sweater the next size down which was actually a bit big on me, and thinking, "This figure brought to you by macadamia nuts and cream cheese." I bought pair of jeans the next size down, too.

My plan this week is to add weight training two days and up my walking a few more days per week (I really need consistent exercise to keep SAD at bay). Hopefully, the weight training will tighten up my core which is on the flabby side. I do love the fact that I can focus on projects (or shopping) without having to stop to eat. I have so much more stamina with NK.

Nope, this was my first go...mostly inspired by (1)noticing sensitivity in process wheat, sugar & excessive carbs (2)several family members are diabetic and (3) mostly wanting to be a low-carb/ketosis marathon runner. And yes of course, I wanted to lose weight

Thanks for the good thoughts- it certainly is a journey. My long run is only at 15 miles and doing ok so far.
