feeling soo weak

Hi Kimmie
Without wishing to be rough on you, this is the reality of a VLCD.
There WILL be days when you feel [email protected] They will pass. This is also the reason why usually we wait 3 months after a baby's birth. Being a mum is exhausting in itself and then you take away food and a source of energy. (I have 2 children myself, one with special needs so I know how it is)
This lousy feeling DOES pass. Go have a bath after the little one is settled and an early night. Tomorrow is another day and a step closer to losing your weight.

Definatey get an early night, make sure you have drunk enough water too. It will get better.

I totally agree with what spooky has said about why you should maybe have waited the 3 months. It is extremely tiring looking after a new born baby. I also think that SSing isnt the one for you and maybe you should be on a higher plan.

Have a chat with your CDC tomorrow.
The first couple of days are the worst as you go through a bit of glucose withdrawal and getting used to the diet.

After 2-3 days you will feel a LOT better and the diet gets easier. Be tough and make it through these early days...you can do it! The results are worth it!

Maggie is suggesting a higher plan. Nothing wrong in that and I am sure if she was your CDC she would suggest it directly as would I.

it will get easier honestly :D
I felt completely crap by the end of the first day, I was looking at doing all sorts of different diets I felt it was so awful, but when I woke up on day 2 i was feeling really positive and I havent looked back

Stay away from the scales during the day if you can if you have to (and some of us have too me included) try and keep it to the morning times :)

An early night sounds like a great idea I definitely had a few the first week LOL
