I've been on induction almost 4 weeks and I've lost 15 lbs. I have good energy days and bad, but for the most part, I feel committed and immune to temptation - must be those wonderful effects of ketosis that Dr. Atkins loves to talk about!

I've been using lypolisis strips to test my urine and they mostly come out dark pink or light purple. I think that's pretty good. Never as dark as the chart on the side of the bottle, but in the good fat-burning color family. I had my DH do one as a control group and his stayed beige, so I was glad to see that.

I'm about 209 now and want to get to 170 and see how I feel. I've been thinner, but it's way to hard for me to maintain - one little shift in my lifestyle and I'm up the scale again.
