    Sorry to hear you are feeling down hun.

    The only advice I can give is to get some woolly jumpers as I was freezing throughout CD! One way of looking at it is that you are burning more fat trying to keep warm!

    Oh I know it can be so tedious. Try having a bath with some extravagant products in. Or have a shower and then use some gorgeous smelling body lotion.
    Using a face mask is always a treat and I particularly love doing a pedicure or manicure.
    Having a duvet day on the couch with a good film, the curtains closed the fire on full and a good old film.

    I often wrap up and go out for a walk locally. You get a chance to noisy at other folk’s houses, say hi to those you pass in the street, burn some calories and get warm.

    ……….and don’t forget to take some water with you – splash out and buy some fizzy water!!!

    Good luck

    All I can suggest is the same as Porgeous-keep yourself wrapped up warm. There are days that I feel really cold and others where I just don't notice. I suppose it's because I've got terrible circulation anyway that I always feel cold, so I think I'm used to it. I've told the family not to moan if I want the heating on and they don't. I figure that I cook their meals, etc so they can cut me some slack!:D Believe me it does get better-you'll find ways to cope with the cold and the hunger :)

    I've never pampered myself as much as I have done since starting this diet. Sunday used to be a housework day in pyjamas and no shower. Now I still do the housework in the morning but when the family have their roast dinner I go upstairs and pamper myself! Lovely Aussie shampoo and conditioner, strawberry smellies! I smell good enough to eat! :D

    Very hot shower, a long one. scrub til nice and pink. Put a face mask/intensive face treatment on whilst you are in there as your pores will be nice and open and the blood flowing nicely.

    Out, put on jammies, socks and slippers, under the duvet on the couch to watch a film.

    Works a treat

    I found that drinking all that cold water didn't help. I switched all my water intake to herb teas and black, weak ordinary tea, and didn't really notice the cold after that. Worth a try.

    Actually my drinking water is all room temp or above, I don't like cold water.

    I will also quite happily sit with a litre pot of herbal or green tea and just keep refilling my mug til the pot runs out.

    Hi, hope you are feeling better today.
    I was like that for the first few weeks just freezing all the time especially in the evenings.. I used to take myself of for a relaxing bath.. or add layers....
