So I finally had an evening without a beer last night. Did one last test with the ketostix before bed and got a positive reading. An even better one this morning. Woo Hoo! I finally induced ketosis!

I've been circling this diet for almost two months and guess up until now, that I had not cut enough carbohydrate out of my diet. I also made a deal with my wife yesterday, that if I lost 25 pounds doing this that she would do it with me.

She feels that its too extreme, but I don't really see it that way anymore. It's like saving money. I'm doing this now, so later I can eat without worrying so much about my weight.

So I've got a goal weight of 270 pounds to get the wife on board by the first of the year.
