day 2 and feel so crappy

#4
My husband says I was very irritable the first few days, and looking back I was. I thought the first few days were hard and was off to the loo every five seconds which wasn't much fun! You've got to give it a few days to work out whether it's right for you. Sometimes friends feel intimidated by others future success. Don't let them sabotage your future happiness!

Just following on from Catz...I think affirmations might be useful for you too. You know sort of saying "I am a great person", "I am a success"...whatever you want to believe about yourself. Gradually you start to believe it but keep saying those positive things to yourself repeatedly until you start to believe it!
As for the advice about having a bath - works everytime for me too!! Spoil yourself!!

Hey Hip Chick!!! Don't be sad - it's usual to run the gamut of emotions when you start something like this. After all - it does have the potential to change your life and sometimes that feels a little overwhelming - I know it did to me.

Like the others have said it WILL get easier - promise!! You're just going thru' the carb withdrawal, and the caffeine withdrawal and the sugar downer and the detox............. but hey - then you'll be in ketosis and will have lost pounds by next week and be all happy again!!! Just grit your teeth and work through it. Find a distraction. Go into a quiet room and beat the crap out of some cushions!! Come and have a rant in September Starters!!!

We'll be there holding your hand!!

Hope you feel better soon hun xxxx

I had a horrendous time for the first 5-6 days. I really didnt know if i could do it. i didnt want to waste £66 though so carried on. I felt ill, weak,tired,dizzy,hungry,emotional,sick, had the runs.
I have to add though to that bad picture that I feel great now. really. dont get me wrong i am still finding not eating stuff i like hard but its easier to control. im not hungry at all. seriously give yourself a few more days and you will feel better.
