    Hi all

    I'm on day 5 of the diet and I've stopped feeling sick and headachy which is great ... but I'm still getting reaaaaALLLLY hungry :(

    I feel like I'm on a roller coaster - when I've had my shake, I'm so positive that this is the diet for me, and that I can do it - but 30 mins later i'm starving and can't stop thinking about food, and how I can do this on Weight Watchers .... but the problem is I can't do it on Weight Watchers otherwise I wouldn't be here in the first place.

    I don't mind being a bit hungry - but I can't put up with this for 3 months, which is the limjit I've put on myself for doing this diet.

    SORRY to moan on , but I just so wanted this diet to be for me (Can you guess I'm on the down slope of my roller coaster at the moment?)

    :cry:

    Hi Lesley
    Think its just going to take time to get your head around a new way of eating , its like me i've been toying with the idea of VLCD since April , and you know its hard... i first went on CD back in April brought boxes and more boxes ..... but i kept breaking because my mood was low . So now i'm on slim fast and some added food now but still find it hard . You might find you want 2 shakes for CD and a meal its still better than giving up ? what do you think ?

    Hi

    Yeah that could be an option. I'm doing this with my hubby and sis and I don't think they'd let met give up without a fight lol

    I can put up with the cravings ... I just thought you weren't supposed to feel hungry :( *feeling sorry for myself*

    Hi Sazzy

    Yeah I guess I have done the hard bit ... I think it's just the weekend that's doing it. Sitting here watching "Over the Hedge" have you seen it - it's ALL about food lol big mistake!

    I've just found the 50 reasons to lose weight thread and copied it to Word and added some of my own, which have helped a little. I don't want to give up - i WANT TO BE SLIM

    Thats what I was just saying to my hubby ... I think we'll have to plan our weekends more so we're more active ... today we've been chilling out watching DVDs. Tomorrow we're going to play Golf on the PS3 - time always flies when we're doing that :)

    Hang in there Lesley, each week gets a little easier and you may not be fully into ketosis yet hence the hunger. As Nina says your WI will be the biggest motivator to keep going! You've done so well to get this far so stick with it.

    With feeling hungry ... sometimes we are just thinking about food and really we are not hungry.....But the water does do the trick have a pint when you feel hungry it should die down the hunger . Its the shock to your mind and body the diet , its also teaching yourself how to deal with food in another way.. theres been many times i've failed and came back and you know what i really could kick myself for that cos i would of been there by now ... but still being at goal means not going back to how you eat before too . Never give up Lesley because the diet will always be your life , crack it and leave it behind you girl :)
