As for going to the toilet; I now map my journeys by toilet stops and go just before I leave and have to go again as soon as I arrive. Have had some scary moments in between! lol
I know - these toilet visits add to the exercise (all those stairs!). And for some reason, when I need to go to the lavvy on this diet it really is a case of needing to go. I think its due to excess drinking where as before I started this diet, Id only sip the odd drink throughout the day.
So ive gone from trickles to all out desperation.
Its got to be good for my skin and my system xx
Ugh, getting up in the middle of the night to go to the loo The first week, I would go all the time. But now it is getting better Either my body got used to the water intake or I have a large bladder...
I'm like you GG, I plan everything around loo now Because I can't just avoid drinking, my mouth gets too dry (and it's not good for the diet)
why does this diet make you thirsty? Ive eaten less on a calorie controlled diet and not been as thirsty.
It's probably because the fat is water soluble so uses up a lot of the water intake to burn it. Dry mouth is a common side effect too. Plus we are not "retaining" water any more so have no "stores".
Thanks GG xx
Day 2 continued
Im having a mint shake for lunch - I like to make mine with 7 floz of water instead of 8 and enjoy it like a thick shake. Ive got a lovely iced bottled of water to wash it down with.
Just been on the phone to my AMAZING CDC and she is exchanging all my unwanted flavours for mint choc tomorrow and she is allowing me to have bars in my first week (because after my foody tea, i miss my choc treat) and she knows Im really driven by my goals.
I have updated my facebook page with a new picture of me today too (just my face) and people are commenting how good I look (but thats from the 8 weeks worth of gymming I did prior to this plan. I didn't lose weight but my face shape changed - its the only thing that did). That makes me feel good about myself today. Infact I think I smiled - a feeling I havent enjoyed for a while.
I havent told anyone but my mum and Hubby about this diet as I know from when I did it last that everyone made jibes and ill judged comments about it. So my facebook freinds have no idea im doing this neither. I dare not show my face on this forum as well, just in case one of my facebook buddies is a member here but I will show my face when Ive got to goal - im a tad shy and embarrassed about my weight gain as it is.
I can't believe how focused I am even though its only day two. Last time, on day one I was a different girl. This time I just keep saying "its medicine, it will make me feel better" over and over again.
God, what am I like?
ive just read all your posts on your diary, and i am honestly giggling here... you are so funny sometimes....
i would love to be able to have a nap during the day... (and im only 27!!) lol but work does not let me do this! lol i think i would get into trouble... Kids, go play i need to sleep! lol
how did you get on swapping your packs???
i like the choc mint one, but only hot... have you tried it hot??
thanks Kes. I don't think Id like it hot because normal hot chocolate makes me wanna spew as it is. But my CDC is coming tomorrow to exchange my bananas and butterscotch's for just choc mint. YAY!
oh thats good... it is wierd how we all like different things... i guess it all comes down to what you were given as a kid, that forms your likes and dislikes.
I honestly and truthfully ADORE the choc mint. Its like a super treat for me and more tastier than bloody water!
Im so psyched right now...honest to god, I feel I could run around the street in the nake! But that would be wrong and arrestable
lol maybe when you get to goal!! hehehehe
Ive been to the loo 45 thousand times today. Im at more risk of falling down the stairs from the constant trips than dying of starvation on this diet!
GREAT - it's working then!
Good luck xx
