Yum! I have some strawberries in my fridge. Think I'll make that salad.

I've been doing the CO and ACV for a week (I skipped one day) and I feel like my clothes are fitting a little better. Also, my skin is looking lovely! I started washing my face with honey at the same time, so I think both the CO and honey are paying off.
I was starting to get a little revolted by the texture of the solid CO, particularly when taking it at night. But the recent heat wave took care of that - it's liquefied! And swallowing a tablespoon of liquid oil doesn't disgust me for some reason.
I have been eating TF for 3 years and using CO to cook with. I am nursing my 9 month old and need to lose the 25 remaining baby pounds. i was actually down to only needing to lose 10 pounds when the baby was about 2 months old and have since gained. Not sure what is going on!
I have been cooking with CO and take 1.5 tsp in the AM and 1.5 tsp in the PM. I am gaining. What is going on?
Did anyone else gain before they lost and how long do I need to stick with it? Is there anyone who only has gained? Should I stop now before I'm up another 5lbs?
Help! SO FRUSTRATED!
Are you eating lots of carbs? Like what else are you eating, basically? I've been reading some things that lead me to believe that reducing carbohydrates/sugar will make taking the CO more effective... it's not spelled out in EFLF but I am in the middle of Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes and that's the message that I'm getting. (It's a pretty dense book...) that high fat/low carb is what really helps with weight loss.
I know you are frustrated, but I wanted to say that the CO is STILL good for you & the baby! I have heard/read of initial lack of loss/gain and then losing some.
