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. :)

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
thank you everyone I have got a business meeting tommorrow where sandwiches are provided, im going to crop up with a soup and ask for water so bet that will be testing - looking at your trackers is a massive incentive though thank you xx

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
thanks everyone day 3 and i am feeling much better now got my energy back : ) only slipped once and had a few steamed veg :S am kind of looking forward to my weigh in now xx do you weigh yourselves between meetings x
