    Hi

    That's normal and the pizza last night won't be helping unfortunately.. major carb hangover! :D. Keep drinking the water everytime you feel headachy etc and it'll settle after about 3-5 days (depending on how long it takes you to get to ketosis).

    Good luck!

    I found the first few days on SS quite hard but then it got easier after the first week. Just keep drinking water and stay determined - you will be fine. :)

    just keep telling yourself that it gets much easier , the first week is tough and if you take it one day ( or even 1 hour ) at a time , you can get through it and after that the time ( and weight ) fly by :)
    glug the water and enjoy your shakes :)

    I started on Friday, and found the first day the hardest, for me its breaking habits, instead of eating popcorn while watching a film, or choc when eastenders on I have the choc shake slightly warm so its a hot choc and then i feel as though i had a treat.

    The girls are right, water is really important and i hate unflavoured water, it does stop the headaches and makes you feel more full.

    Good luck on your journey

    Hi Walkerl1979
    I started yesterday and have about 10lbs more than you to lose. I have done Cambridge before but life got in the way as it does lol I feel very determined at the moment but from previous experiences my "trouble" days are 5 and 6. If I can get through 2 weeks on SS I will be extremely pleased with myself. Good luck with your journey
    xx
