    Hi All,

    I only started SS yesterday for the first time. I have not cheated at all and not struggled too bad with being hungry today, but the cravings are a nightmare, I am concerned that it is just going to get worse... does it???

    I have 3 stone to lose which seems like such a big task for me, so I am praying that when I have my weigh in next Monday the loss I have made is enough to motivate me to continue. I am someone that is motivated by results, so if I have not reached a decent loss I will lose the motivation I have.

    Am I setting my sights to high to be hoping for a minimum of 5LBS in my first week?

    I love to read all your comments and posts on here, I spent two weeks before I commited to the CD reading everything you all had to say, and have to admit it is a great motivator to see all the positive progress!!!

    Well Done to all of you, I just hope I can do half as well! :)

    Jazzy xx:D

    Hi jazzy and welcome to CD and the forum. It does get easier. The first 3 to 4 days are the worst but once ketosis kicks in it's a lot easier. I restarted today and I also have around 3 stone to lose. When I did it last time I lost 8lbs the first week so ur 5lbs should be more than doable. Good luck with your journey xx

    Hi fireheart, I am guzzling more water than ever before, I feel like I will burst. It does stop me being hungry, but not working in stoping the cravings. Luckily I have emptied the house of pretty much all food (I live alone so easily done)so no matter how bad the cravings get I can't give in.

    I have hung around the house a few dresses I am determined to get back into as part of my motivation, so fingers crossed that will help too. :D

    I hope you are coping with your first day ok!! Is this your first time at this CD?

    Stay Strong, we will both do it I am sure :)xxx

    Ahh thanks Emz, that is good to know, as was thinking I might have been expecting to much, but if I lose the 5lbs I will be jumping for joy!!

    I keep thinking, 'roll on ketosis' time, well except for the expected bad breath!! But as they say no pain no gain, and these cravings are a killer!! :p

    I hope I can do as well as you did/are... thanks again, and good luck with this next 3 stone xxx

    Wow well done you FireHeart, not sure I am brave enough to venture out to cafes just yet. Must be hard when you have children and a hubby, as so many temptations around, but thinking if you can resist cafe offerings on day 1 you will be just fine!!!

    Keep it up!! xx
