It's now been taking me about 10 days to lose a pound. I need to be happy but I can't help but feel a bit discouraged.

I feel ya! The same thing happens to me. I stick to the plan but the loss seems so slow. Fortunately....when I do see the scale drop it gives me enough of a "happy" to keep going. Also....sometimes I go back to the beginning and reintroduce myself to the basics. We'll get there Emily....sometimes the turtle wins!

Kmburgher- I've started Intermittent fasting. I won't eat after 8pm and won't have my first meal till 12pm or 1. If I can hold off that long. lol it's been slowly working. Ive lost 1 more pound. But im not gonna lie, I don't feel fat fadapted yet. I do get hungry pretty early.

My losses have slowed as well..but hey.... better than gaining...No? i also do an IF of 18/6 (1pm to 7pm) since Sept...had to build up to it from a 12/12 to 16/8 then 18/6. I also do a OMAD on Sat and Sun. I love it...in that I feel the control....over my life. I have energy , strength and order. It has given me a little perspective ...I am not so unconscious about eating...grazing all gone!!!!! I do not know if I am fat adapted. I do not get hungry as I did starting out...I guess what I like most about all this is the attention I pay to it...the tweaking...and the basics....and the cooking and conferring....Thank you all ...What a great way to start a weekend...lots to think about.

Loss is Loss..

Judyrose- can you tell me what OMAD is? In still learning so much even if I've been on Keto for 6 months.

One Meal A Day. I had to look it up too when I first started on FS.

Oh wow, I would def need to work up to OMAD. I think it's the food addiction brain. I'm working on trying to not think about food. It's hard when you've been overweight all your life. :(

i find...if i try not to think about anything...it becomes the "elephant in the room" It becomes the only thing I think about. Now , with Keto, I have immersed myself in all thinks Keto. That way my brain has adapted to what I am doing with food in a really positive manner. If its not Keto...I HAVE...to stop and think about it...before i eat it. Not like before Keto...when I unconsciously grazed on foods all day. I agree with Ches- Loss is Loss- but in the mean time...I can think Keto. I can learn as much about it as possible. I have only been on Keto for 5 months...and I too have been overweight on and off all my life. Funny, without knowing it..I did a diet at 19yrs old that was quite close to Keto. As I remember it ...was as easy -weight loss good and I just didn't think too much about food I wasn't allowed... and I did think alot about food I was eating...(no sugar or flour)This OMAD came easy to me as my family has One big meal together on Sat and Sun so...no brainer. Coffee before while preparing...and coffee /water after... for the day. Just added to my Keto adventure. I am finding there are a huge variances in many Keto members diets. The most important aspect for me is the fellowship, comraderie, and support we show in our sharing. I could not do this alone. In this, my weight problem, I never have to be alone again!!!!!

Fritzy22- Me too...I had to look it up as well. I keep looking up "fat adaphage"???? It keeps coming up in the stuff I read and I guess I can't wrap my head around it...so I have to keep researching it...but that's what I mean...so much..in this way. (WOE) ;>) 
20 Oct 17 by member: Judyrose1997
I looked up WOE too, one of the first things!

Judy, are you thinking of "autophagy?" Tons of good info on the web about it. One of the benefits of fasting. 
20 Oct 17 by member: bexa raven
@bexa raven- Thank you...of course I am thinking of that term . Just doesn't matter how much I read about it...I have an inability to understand it. I couldn't appropriately describe its meaning in the Keto context-- other than to say ...it is the aspect by definition that is present if a person has 1. been in Ketosis . 2. Has not eaten carbs or too much protein and 3, yet Ketonic state is NOT evident in their urine? I know this sounds stupid when I say it...not even certain it is a true statment. Here i will humbly bow out...
