    Morning,
    Well after feeling great waking up this morning, if with just a slight headache, I now feel absolutely *****. I've got a banging headache, I feel cold, dizzy and spaced. The main thing is that I know what it is - and that it will pass. Wish I could just go back to bed - but alas two children to look after! :(

    Stick with it Gemsie, mine passed pretty quickly (i had the light headedness too)..

    I read on here that someone suggested eating something with a high-fat content which helped them..

    Keep drinking the water hun..

    You're doing really well with the loss so far :)

    Atkins 'flu usually happens during the first week. I didn't get 'flu symptoms but I did feel sort of weak and depressed. It soon goes on its way and you feel vroom vroom.

    Bless you!

    Thanks all,
    I am starting to feel better now - not exactly bursting with energy, but feel I am on track. D-Day for me tomorrow, but I am hopeful. I have lost 5.5lbs in 5 days, so I am happy. :D
