    Well I started my cd journey last september and was really enjoying it and coping really well however only managed just over 3 weeks as I found out I was pregnant well one thing or another that pregnancy didnt survive so after much festive jollies and new year celebrations i find myself back here.

    I have been doing sw for a while but i have to admit i wasnt that happy with the weight loss and more than that thinking 24/7 what I could and could not eat. So here I am again on CD. I am unofficially starting today as I cant get an appointment with my cdc till Sat however I still have a weeks supply left and as I am feeling motivated at the mo wanna take the bull by the horns.

    So my question for you all really is to remind me of the helpful hints and tips for success. I remember that water is the key and to try and drink as much of it as you can and I also remember that the support on minis is priceless but was just wondering if there were any other hints and tips to make the transition into Ketosis as pain free as possible.

    Hi Everchangingme from a fellow brummie! whereabouts in Brum are you?

    My first advice would be to concentrate on the water and the rest will fall into place. Aim for 4 litres a day which sounds like a lot, but those folks that drink most seem to lose the quickest. It will really help you to feel full as well so you are not thinking about yoru empty tum.

    If possible, weigh and measure yourself today if this is day 1, as the huge weight loss in week one is what inspires many people to continue. If you dont weigh until you see your CDC next week then you wont know how well you have done in your first week.

    The only other thing is to remind yourself how hard those first few days can be and just grit your teeth and get through it. You will know that once the first week is behind you it gets much easier.

    Good luck xxx

    good advice from WL8s.

    One day at a time and yes, definitely weigh yourself today even if you have to go out and find scales somewhere.

    good luck

    Day one wasnt the best if I am honest but it is partly down to myself I was in bed by 9.00pm with a splityting headache. I thought I would be clever and try and last as long as I could before having my shakes not always hungry first thing however by the time i had been shopping and run errands it was 5.00pm hence the headache. Started off really well with the water also had drunk a ltr by 11am however after that i managed another 1/2 ltr before i went to bed so all in all didnt do too well managed 1.5 ltr of water and two shakes.

    As they say today is a new day so I will attempt to do it right today with a minimum of 2.5 ltr and 3 shakes. We will see how it goes. Other than that food didnt tempt me at all which is good. So heres to day two!!!! Already done a ltr of water and its not even 9am !!! Woo Hoo

    your headache will have been due to dehydration if you only had 1.5 litres and 2 packs. At least you didnt eat though!

    Try concentrating on the water today and space your packs a bit better and Im sure you will be fine. take a couple of paracetamol if you still have a headache.


    Good luck for day 2 xx
