Yes I'm rather fancying food too. I'm consoling myself with the healthy eating plan I will follow after I finish this. Hopefully it will feel like heaven just to eat healthy food again!

Eyes on the Prize!!
The third week is notoriously sh*tty! I was full of the joys of life one minute and the next like a grumpy crappy miserable so and so! A joy to live with!!

Those kind of days occasionally pop up but on the whole its not too bad. I can't wait to get back into ketosis and not feel hungry!!


Still Motivated
I'm not hungry I just really miss the taste of food so much I could cry:cry:
Bless you and of course you will get cravings and things. It is only natural considering we have only a small selection of tastes to choose at the moment, when we have been used to much more variety.

But, after 12 weeks I took a planned few days off total solution(not to be confused with add-a-meal) and had small samples of what I thought I had been missing, even the smallest sip of dry white wine tasted too sweet/thick/heavy. I was actually disappointed really because absolutely nothing tasted as good as I expected (a good thing I think.) In fact, I was quite relieved to get back to the comfort of my soups/shakes.

Of course, I am not advocating for anyone to do what I did but for me it has cured my cravings.

Thanks everyone it really helps to hear how everybody copes ! the good news is I get lots of me time in the bathroom I serve up their food and head off for a nice soak and pamper my fake tan and nails look great lol x
Mrs B...it's no secret I caved earlier this week which has made me suffer more I reckon. It has only reinforced my need though to get through this. WE can achieve our goals and if that involves a scream or a blub now again, so be it! Stick in...x


Is a woman on a mission.
Well done on getting to the third week. x x

When I feel crappy/ratty/full of cravings...I have a long deep bubble bath. It temporarily removes the negative feelings and I usually feel refreshed and back on track.

Keep up the good work....you can do it! x x
