Why Be Normal?
Welcome Back esk140

Hi esk140 --

Welcome back. I started back ssing 6 days ago -- and will meet with a CDC on Wednesday. It does work fast... what I need to work on is just getting there -- and then most of all staying there. I have to make the big changes to keep the weight off... and understand that they have be for life! :cry:

Good Luck to Us All!!

Why Be Normal?
Hi ESK140 --

Please drink all your water. One of the risks of a VLCD (i.e. ketosis) is dehydration.

"... it may lead to dehydration. In an effort to restore balance, the body eliminates ketones through the urine, causing increased unrination." Low Carb Bible

So, you are probably heading into ketosis and that headache may be an indicator of dehydration.

Hang in there... it gets easier.

day 11 , I think I am doing really good.
going away on the weekend for 8 days
so, I am going off plan a bit
I will be taking bars and boxes and I will try to eat them when I can for my meals
when I come home 100% until the end.


this time - the last time
Well done you're doing great so far! Enjoy your weekend! Hope you plan a nice treat for when you hit goal too!
back today 100% for the next few months
I can do this and I will feel so much better about myself.........

Great plan! 100 days from today is 7th may (I think). I'll join you if that's ok (although I have 22 under my belt ;-) )

Shall we start a separate thread?

Well done on 3days. You're almost past the worst of it!
