    Hi girls, I'm due my period this week, my PMT is off the scale, I normally only have a bad mood every few months or so, but could bite a nail in half yesterday and today.

    Plus I'm fancying food like mad and could eat the contents of the fridge quite easily..

    Stay busy and invest in a punching bag hahaha! No seriously im nervous about this 2. Just keep water with you and i have a post-its in places i always look at with little motivators on them. It works for me because i see them out of the corner of my eye wen im tempted and it brings me back to why im doing lipotrim. Everyone is individual but this works for me!

    and one of those lovely cardigans where the arms tie up around the back... The only advantage is dealing with all the stroppy customers today, there was no mercy....

    It's a lucky thing i dont deal with customers anymore they would probably run away from me terrified coz ill want to smell them if they ate any food recently. Hahahaha!

    awwww hun... I get hideous pmt...spots...moods...the LOT!

    I think it's one of those things that NOTHING makes you happy til it's out of the way!! I guess I'd advise watching a few feel-good films to distract yourself- oh and how about buying some food you DESPISE and leave that in the fridge to put you off!?

    Bless you. I never got PMT until after I had my twins. I found whilst on CD a multi vitamin with added evening primrose oil worked really well and kept me in ketosis. Not sure if you are allowed it on Lipotrim but it stopped me from eating the fridge before murdering someone:sign0007:lol

    Hi Jane,
    hope you are feeling better by now, PMT is horrid but once you remember you are not hungry and cravings are just in your head you will be ok.
    Wishing you all the best.

    Thanks girls, I have backed away from the fridge but the mood is still there, hoping it lifts today, for everyone elses sake as well as my own, I haven't ever had it this bad :sigh:

    Perhaps having a hot choc shake may be a nice way to feel slightly comforted?

    Or a latte :) (i think a sweetener helps the lattes when you have them hot, but experiment).

    Good luck and don't give in to temptation!!

    God I could have written this post Jane! I'm a complete psycho. I feel sorry for anyone who rubs me up the wrong way. I was always a tad quick tempered (putting it mildly) but since I've been on LT it has turned into psychotic rages! I'm lucky as everyone around me just laughs, because apparently it's funny.

    I take every vitamin, mineral, oil known to mankind to no avail. I've tried yoga (made me angrier as I hurt my back badly, and it just sent me into cramps) I've tried relaxation tapes (annoyed the hell out of me as the lady's voice was like a soft porn star) I just have to weather the storm.

    As for my amazing sense of smell! I hate it! My poor dog is being shampooed twice a week as she turns me.

    I've been to the Docs and done everything she recommended but sadly I'm still full of the rage. So I completely sympathise with you. All I can suggest is to keep apologising to the people you upset and explain that you can't control it. I think it's to do with deep down feeling deprived when everyone else around us is indulging.
