Keep with it darl.. I was the same had about 4 days off work sick as I just couldn't function but it passed, I came online constantly for support and it really got me through the bad times. Its awful as you feel as though no one knows what you are going through, but the people on this forum do and we will get you through the rough times. Relax, have long baths, read, come on line and talk through the pitfalls as everyone will soon pick you up.
Its a long road but you will come out stronger and thinner!
This forum defo helps. I know I would have failed today had I not come on here. Day 2 tomorrow for me, hope its easier than todays. Ive not had any headaches just want to EAT.

It does get easier - honest, and as stupid as it sounds - the less you eat the easier it gets as you get in to ketosis sooner.
Good luck


nearly there!! :)
