Anna,

I have had so many of my friends asking what I am doing and wanting to start my plan the last 2 days I was afraid I had surely jinxed myself lol. I'm glad it hasn't slowed one of my friends started 3 days ago and she is down 8 lbs.

Good for you!
I can fast (I do three times a week) and still don't lose like that.
The only thing I can come up with is that I am more that twice your age and with years of Low fat, low calories, yoyo dieting in my history.
I encourage you to continue this WOE now because the older you get the harder it is!
What I would give to be able to go back to 23 with the knowledge of Low carb WOE!
One consolation I have is passing this information on to my 12 year old daughter.
And of course living to see her grow up!

That is so true Anna! I am so thankful to know the right way to eat now and even though my daughter is only 4 I can teach her good eating from an early age. Some people never figure this out so it's a blessing any of us know at all

I go through hungrier days and less hungry days. If you are eating the same as me you could try having one of the bigger meals (eggs or hamburger) now instead of later. I don't want u to be uncomfortably hungry

Thanks Betty!!
You can download an app called carbs control that's free. I use that to calculate my percentages for me. Much easier that way

Hi Everyone!!!!

So glad you're joining us today Cathy!!

Chik, fit day should work I think. All you do is plug in what you eat and it should calculate it for you. If fit day doesn't do percentages I know somewhere online does. You could even try searching the cabs control app on your computer. Most apps u can use on your computer as well as phone. That is great that you are in ketosis!!!

I'm only down .4 lbs today but I think that's because I lost 1.6 lbs yesterday so still averaging a pound a day

Yesterday afternoon at some point I felt like I hit the wall. LC or induction flu I suppose its called.....
but today I am starting to feel better.....looking forward to tomorrow. Hoping more energy will come back......I haven't had energy in a while so this is really great.....
Also I have to say my legs and joints don't hurt as much. Legs the swelling has gone down even though its still hot. Y the joints don't hurt as much??????? My guess is with the carbs the inflammation has gone down.....
Looking forward to feeling better and better.....
