    Hi,
    I know it can be hard the first week but as K says, it does get better. Hopefully you can take some time out today to just look after yourself ...take a couple of over the counter headache tablets & snuggle up on the sofa :hug99:
    The first few days are definitely the hardest but once you've cracked them, that's it ...easy street:p
    Try to read through all the success stories on here to keep motivated - unfortunately I think its just one of those things we've got to just grin & get through :)
    Take care
    yoyo

    hi there
    you just have to ride it out - but it will pass.
    Try and keep busy - or lock your self away with a good book or dvds

    it is worth it
    good luck

    Poor Claire! It can be horrible - I had a really rough time too. The only way I can cope is to treat myself like I have a cold - I took the week off and spent it under a duvet in front of the TV. Can you do similar? Just be very kind to yourself, take paracetamol for the headaches, put your feet up and nap, and have early nights if possible.

    The good news is this: if you're feeling cold, you're probably getting into ketosis. Which means you'll feel loads better soon, AND start your weight losses! :)

    Hang in there, chuck.

    Im on day 5 and i feel so terrible right now not only is it the physical side (headache, nausea and exhausted) its just a real emotional rollercoaster aswell. Last night i just wanted to give up but my family rallied round and made sure i didnt do anything stupid.

    For some reason i get worse in the night and i was slightly sick with all this water ive been drinking i guess. I just pray it gets better cause i cant do this much longer!

    Also i picked up some ketone strips and ive been in ketosis for 3 days now so i kinda thought id be done with this by now :sigh:.

    I felt like that too and some wise people on here suggested looking at the inspiration slide shoe...
    it kinda keeps you motivated, those pics will be you if you hang on in....
    Be well
