    Hey ladies! It's a good news/bad news day.
    Good news first. I've been really solid with Keto for a week now and I'm sleeping better, feel lighter, appetite at bay and no cravings. I'm sticking with it for another two weeks and then I will weigh and measure. I just needed to walk away from the numbers and trust the process.
    bad news is I wore a favorite ring yesterday and it was loose and turns out it fell off somewhere at work! I didn't even notice until I got home. So we are all on high alert walking the halls today! And I will celebrate my skinny finger.

    Linda, I was ready for a June round with you but you are smart to weigh out the pratfalls. It will be a solid six months for me after round five and suspected immunity. I wanna but don't know if I should...

    Bubble, you are doing so well! Hopefully today you will see a number that makes you smile with relief. If you move up on the scale, is it a minor correction that will correct itself? I wonder if the massage would have a long term effect. As Leez would say, "you are your own experiment." (Actually, you're OUR experiment! )

    I was really careful with oils on my very first round - did the drops - way back in 2010. I remember one facebook forum advised against even shaking hands with people!

    Hey Bubble - great progress on your round! Hoping the massage oil doesn't have a negative affect.

    I think the advice in Dr Simeons manuscript about using oils was twofold. It makes you aware of things that you don't eat that may affect your weight and your ability to lose fat. I had certainly never thought of that... The other part of it is that his research was done in the 1950s. Products have certainly changed in the last 60+ years... I was pretty careful in my first round, but never went as far as wearing gloves when removing fat from my chicken I did read labels on my shampoo and other products more carefully and made sure I wasn't using something that would work against me.

    Tracy - so sorry about your ring. Fingers crossed that you find it soon. On the other hand (ha ha), the fact that it could fall off shows some great progress for you too. When I started gaining weight 20ish years ago, my wedding rings started getting uncomfortably tight, but I refused to have them sized, thinking that would be like giving up and admitting that I would never lose that weight. I bought a plain wedding band for about $15 on eBay in a size 6 and started wearing that. Then, about 10 years ago, I finally did give up, missed my rings and had them sized up so I could wear them again. Big letdown. Now, thanks to hcg, I have had them sized down again to a 4.5! I did wait until I had kept the weight off for a full year, and yes I was very nervous about them falling off.

    Depending on our "visitor schedule" this summer, I may postpone my next round until late September/October instead. That would give me a year between rounds as well. My body seems to like the weight I am now (although my mind doesn't) so, I'll just hang and make sure the creep doesn't start. I'm trying to incorporate longer IF times along with the Keto. Not giving up my coffee, but trying not to eat until at least noon and finishing my last meal by 6 or 7pm. Will keep you posted on how that works.

    Oh, and as for the keto sticks and disposable cups, I've always just peed directly on the stick and then washed my hands. At some point I learned to smell ketosis. I think it was after DH asked me why the bathroom smelled like cat pee! LOL

    Happy Valentine's Day everyone, or just Happy Thursday if you don't celebrate V-day.

    Yes Linda, keep us posted on your IF journey! I'm a little bit IF and little bit Keto (cue Donny and Marie Osmond here...) I'm eating supper around 5-6pm and my first meal is usually around 10am. But I'm not weighing or measuring until March 2nd.

    As for the ring, my philosophy is, if it wants to be found, I'll find it :-) very new age huh? Just trying to keep my brain empty from unwarranted worry.

    So yeah, Valentine's Day was another Thursday here! Alexa told me this morning that that today is "singles awareness day". What the what? Now even she is reminding me that I'm an Arthritic cat lady. TACL 4evah.

    Good morning TACL and everyone!

    So, we've had about 5 inches of rain after the snow last weekend, and it is raining again today. They are predicting low snow levels on Sunday again. Crazy. I miss my Cali sunshine!

    IF is going fine. Not sure if I "feel" any benefits, but it has only been a few days. I am not hungry yet, so I will wait to eat until I am. I think I was eating earlier out of boredom instead of hunger. I was also trying to fit in around 1700 calories with the keto macros. At this point, I'm going to focus on the satiety factor instead of the calorie count.

    Tracy - still hoping you find your ring. Don't forget, stuff like that can roll under furniture and things. My rings are always at the greatest risk of slipping off when I wash my hands. Can you check sink traps?

    LOL on Alexa! I refuse to have one of those contraptions. Call me old-fashioned, but I don't want some contraption lurking and listening to everything! Scares me. Too much like 1984!

    TGIF and have a great weekend everyone. I will let you know if we get snow again this weekend. We don't have any place special to go, so it won't bother me if we do get some more snow. As long as I don't have to shovel, it's OK with me.
