Hi there!

You are not on your own, the first few days are the hardest, just stick with it, drink plenty of water and I promise you, you will see the results.

hey Charleen!

Welcome to cd and minimins hun!

Okay, first of all.... like everyone says week one is the hardest! For the first four days you'll feel hungry, you might get headaches and generally feel rubbish... its kinda like a detox.... day 4/5 it gets better!

If your finding it hard getting through day one my advice to you would be to have a real think about it. Since its christmas maybe SS isn't the easiest right now and the last thing you want to do is feel defeated before you've properly got going! (Guessing frm your smilies your feeling a little like this - I could be wrong).

Maybe do a week or so of 'prep' - ie, on a higher plan, with a view to starting SS fully on X date. Because I took a while finding a cdc I had already cut out carbs and lost around 7lbs by the time I started.... and eased into ketosis without any of the symptoms.

Even if you dont do this... make yourself a plan. Make a list of all the reasons why you want to lose the weight, get rid of things around the house your likely to snack on (okay, I know its x-mas and this isn't the easiest!), and have a plan of things to do when you want to snack - maybe going for a walk, or doing something round the house, or a hobbie, or coming here and posting! Oooh - and whenever you feel hungry have a pint of water and wait half an hour...

Hope this helps some

hi :wave_cry:deejay

wow you look amazingvery beautiful can you tell me what you did please?
Just get through the first few days, and it'll be easier. And then after a few weeks when you start to notice the difference in yourself, that pushes you to want to succeed even more. And then when other people start to notice, it's sooo motivating! I definitely think this diet gets easier once you are in the routine of it..

Just hang in there honey, you can do it. And thanks for your kind words :)

Well done Charleen! Good to see you back on the site... and making fantastic progress! A fab loss like that will keep you motivated and steaming ahead... the nights are always tricky, but we have to be strong!
