Merrywinkle's Journal, 28 March 2013

Okay second journal for the day. I finally bought some keto strips. And I seem to be in the range of 15-40. The color really looks to dark to be 15 but I don't maybe not quite 40.
So I guess I am doing something. Just not what I want to be doing.

The thing about ketosis is... you are either in ketosis or you aren't. The color on the stick is really irrelevant. While I think the darker the shade means you are burning 'more' fat, it could also mean that you aren't drinking enough fluids. Mine have been in the darker shades from 'moderate' to 'large' for a few days now and I think it's because I wasn't getting enough water in. What kind of scale do you have? I initially bought one of the 'older' scales but I would have to recalibrate it every time I used it so... I got me a digital one. Much easier to read AND it measures your weight more accurately (mine is in .2 increments). ANDDDDD.... they cost about as much as one of the older scales (I paid $19.99 for mine), they can BE expensive but... I didn't get a fancy schmancy one, I just need to know how much I weigh. :-)

Just the old fashioned floor scale kind. I think I am worried about getting a new one now because maybe this one is off and the new one will weigh me heavier. LOL! But the SO says it is right on with his doctor soooooooo I guess I will put up for now. Yeah I don't know about the ketosis thing either. It never occurred to me that it would have anything to do with water. I know that I have a 'taste' in my mouth when I am in ketosis. One thing I noticed to day is when I eat almost anything I get an awful 'hot' period after I have eaten. I used to get that if I ate pasta or sugary stuff (so it happened a lot lol) but tonight it was tomato/lettuce/bacon/mayo BLT salad. Odd.

Merrywinkle, I bought a new scale from target and it was a joke. It kept weighing me different each time I got on it. I went back to using my old one. Till it dies, I guess it will work just fine. Some people have scales here that measure by the .1, that would drive me batty LOL, Just tell me half pound difference LOL. Old analogue scale still is working too! Old is good:-) as we get older we embrase the simplier things in life. HAHAHa
