    About 20 mins ago, for no reason I started to feel really emotional so decided to ring my Mum, told her I felt a bit flat so we chatted for 10 minutes.

    When I got off the phone I felt really upset, not from anything that was said so I just sat for a minute then before I knew it I was tearful then felt like I really needed to sob - that isn't like me at all!

    My partner gave me a cuddle and I tried to explain to him that I felt so emotional but didn't know why.

    I had a good sob and now it seems to be over it.

    There was no trigger, nothing happened, nothing was said...

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    I have found that LL has played havoc with my emotions around the time of my period, and i have suffered with horendous cramps and headaches and tierdness at that time also. Could it be that?

    Hi Kat

    I remember posting something almost identical on here in my early weeks - I was dreadfully emotional, tearful for no apparent reason, and prone to quite random mood swings!

    The good news is, it doesn't last - if I remember rightly it was probably no more than about 2 or 3 weeks for me, and by no means was I emotional all the time during that time period - so nothing too major to worry about :)

    Take it easy on yourself - it is a major, pretty hardcore diet, and with the CBT element we learn a lot of new things about ourselves, so when you look at it logically, it's no surprise it can cause some intense emotions at times.

    Good luck! x

    hey kat,
    as you know a big part of ll is the cbt , this allows us to deal with our issues in a different way than over eating but what it doesnt do sometimes is address the emotions that bubble to the surface for no apparant reason . dont know if its the same way with you but i now know i ate to push down all the bad stuff in my life almost like puting f**d on top of all the bad feelings and emotions and forcing them deep deep inside where we, A, dont have to deal with them .and B, they cant 'hurt' us. i realise now thats what i did every day of my life , part of no longer using f**d this way meant that these emotions would come from nowhere demanding to be heard . its a process hun and you will find youre way of dealing with all thats been avoided over the years. also i used to get quite weepie for no reason and when i thought about it , it was sadness pure and simple for what i had done to myself , that had brought me to that point , but it did pass and i did find effective ways of dealing with my 'stuff' dont know if any of this makes any sense to you but its my take on it , hope it might help :0)xxx and i hope you feel so much better now xx

    Thank you Sue, that did make total sense to me! I am fine now thank you, can't believe tomorrow is day 10 - it is flying by!

    I have been thinking about you and your family. Hope you are doing as well as you can.
