Newbie Here, Day 2 Almost over!!

S: 14st2lb C: 14st2lb G: 11st0lb Loss: 0st0lb(0%)
Hello Everyone

My names Rachael, (and im a foodaholic) I am 22, and have been dieting since i was in year 6 - so think that would make me about 10/11.

Having met my other half my weight has gone up and up, and because of that i have stopped going out because i am too ashamed of myself :| So with the wedding just 9 weeks away i am fed up of hiding, and i know i can do it because i have done it before - i just need to try and stay focused and positive. I started yesterday first full day, and that was fine as i was so busy.

I am just finishing day two and its getting harder as i get hungrier - Other half is currently cooking Bacona nd eggs and the smell is wafting in to me and i am dribbling at it :( My belly is yelling at me to get it. I am resisting though :( Trying to.

How do you all cope? Do you have hobbies?

Cant wait for my first weigh in to check if its all worth it!

You'll be hungry for the first few days; up to about a week, then ketosis will kick in & I promise the food won't bother you anywhere near as much; I actually enjoy the smell of food now without being annoyed I can't have it.

Coming on here is great for passing some time when you're feeling a bit weak on the diet! & don't let it get in the way of you going out.

Good luck with the diet! The wedding is a great thing to work towards!

Hi Rachel

And, welcome to you and congratulations on your impending wedding! 9 weeks....waw, you must be mad busy and I am sure you have lots of things things to keep your mind busy and occupied!!

You have made a great decision, albiet if difficult, but it is worth it. You should be able to lose the weight in that time, no problem at all.

Once you get into ketosis, then that is when it becomes a little easier. The first few days you will experieince fogginess, headaches and extreme hunger, but that eventually fades and you just get to look forwar to Wk 1 WI and then every weigh in after. Just remember, you will have to re-feed in around Wk 7 to avoid any weight gain before the big day!!!! Then remember, try and remain on healthy eating regime to avoid weight gain afterwards too.

I do keep myself very busy, one with working full time, and I have done an enormous amount of cooking on whilst on the diet. It has been liberating because I have cooked things I would never have done before, BECAUSE I didnt need to eat them..so, that has kept me busy.

I exercise now and I have allotments so I try and get outside until around 9-10 pm at night, then I get onto the forum...so, there is never a time where I am sitting doing nothing....as that can be the time when people and myself included can pick.

Keep focussed, at least you have something to drive you along, and when you feel like caving in, get on here and tell everyone...the support is next to nothing and you will be helped along the way!

Keep drinking like the others said...min 2 litres, max 4lts..the more the better!!

Good luck and you will do it in 9 weeks, just remember to keep positive and dont start moaning that you cant eat, just keep looking to your ultimate goal and that lovely dress you will wear.

Take care

I managed to begin with by avoiding food, but now I enjoy smelling the food, I feel that if I get a real big sniff of the food that I have 'had some'. seems a bit mad but it works for me.
Best of luck. Keep your eye on the goal, that will keep you going
