Welcome..Lighterlife is great..can be tough but at the end of it you all will have new bods;)
today is my first day back on cambridge, having done LL a few years ago, 22lbs have landed on my butt and tummy since then and whilst I am still a shadow of my former self I dont like the "rolls" and bits that wobble nd as I am going skiing with my gorgeous man for new year I want to be in peak condition and felling gorgeous again so its got to come off, so have had a pack and a bar and I am allowing myself the odd cup of tea/coffee with milk , I shall be having the odd meal at weekends when my man is here and if I can get my botty to my step class too , it should come off before christmas.

You will feel c**p for the first few days , we all do and just keep warm, drink lots and think about the lovely new and gorgeous you that wil imerge from under the "fat", having done it I can tell you that it is seriously life changing and I wish I had done it years ago, I am a different person and have a different life and its fabulous, you will never never look back.
good luck.

Hi - yep - I am going to repeat what everyone has said - but they are carb withdrawals and they will be gone in about 3/4 days I'd have thought. Some people get them, some don't... but they do get better. Drink lots, pop some paracetemols if you need to and ride it out... the surge of energy and wellbeing you'll get when you move into ketosis far outweighs these crap days. Good luck xx
