hey all, thanks for all the votes of confidence, it means alot...

...so far i'm half way thru my second day and must say i am pleased with myself, the only thing concerning me is the next 2weeks I got so much work to do at uni i tend to comfort eat when im stressed, so I will have to stay more focussed and am soo determined!! :eek:)

So anyway so far so good and I have my weigh in next week with my CDC.... one thing i have decided to do is wait to weigh myself every week at my CDCs house so all the hard work i put into this will seem soo much more exciting...suppose like getting exam results lol!!

Hi Rani

I am useless at meeting any kind of deadline, good luck with CD and the uni work. The headaches are very normal at this stage, I used to be so reluctant to take a painkiller but have learnt that adjusting to CD is enough on its own without any additional suffering that can be easily alleviated with paracetamol etc.
I was reminded by my counsellor not to have the paracetamol in a capsule, it is better to have the plain type as it won't have any content to interfere with ketosis.
What are you studying? I keep saying how much I hated being a student and then get drawn back into 'just one more course' lol!
Enrolled this week for a short qualification from Bradford Uni, which I will do in March 2010 (glutton for punishment) x

Hi Rani :)

MAssive credit to you on getting to this point and if possible you could always take a couple of paracetamol for the headache and make sure you are drinking plenty of water :D

Have a good sleep tonight and I bet you feel tons better by the morning and ready to tick of another successful day :D:D:D

hey all, thanks for the encouragement, well i am doing psychology and im in my final year and basically got a deadline for this friday for my dissertation proposal and its freaking me out!!!!!

so anyway last night i went to bed and i had a great sleep and woke up this morning not feeling dizzy!! but than to my disappoint i started my time of the month!! ARGHHH!! but to be fair i have stuck to the diet still and im drinking water like a fish! however ive taken about 3 ibuprofen tablets....anyone know if this would affect my ketosis?
I took them because i get really heavy cramps and pains and usually spend the day in my bed with my lovely warm electric blanky and hot water bottle....but because of this damn deadline i cant afford to do that....i am in the library as we speak!! i am proud of myself tho for sticking to the diet :)
Although i am dreading tomorrow as my second day i am always heavy and crave chocolate and such, but than again maybe its a good thing im stressed out about my work therefore stops me thinking bout chocolate mmmm.... lol!!

anyhoo better carry on with this....only 1000 more words to go :S

Happy Dieting!! xx

Aw, poor you. :hug99:

You'll be glad to know the ibuprofen (and come to that, paracetemol) doesn't affect ketosis.

Hope you're feeling better soon and that the words start to flow for that dissertation!

Hi rani

Ooh, sounds like its been a difficult combination of things all happening at the same time, but good to see 2lb already lost, that must be very encouraging. This diet does work; tough at the beginning though!
I did Social Studies incorporating Diploma in Social Work many years ago, there was some compulsory psychology modules. Maybe it will help when we need to give ourselves a good talking to in order to stick with CD, lol x
