    Hello Claire,
    Sorryyou aren't feeling too good. Try and stick with it - drink the water little and often, not in great quantities all at once. If you start early as soon as you get up and just keep sipping regularly it'll be easier. LL uses the water wheel analogy- keep it topped up.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Morning all thank you so much for your posts i keep reading them back each day.. I had a rough night last night couldnt sleep so started crying like a baby i was up from 12:10 till 4:55am this morning.

    I can down to watch tv, then opened the fridge picked up a yogurt dipped the spoon in it licked it, but stopped straight away.

    it's so hard this week i hope it gets better, as it should as ive been on the scales this morning and im 6 lbs down already i hope i can make it 7 lbs by weigh in day :) :) im staying in today as im waiting for my nan to pop round for a lil chat shes 77 years old and so funny bless ya.

    so far ive had a shake and coffee.. i hope i get to have a nap this afternoon :) is this lack of sleep normal please?

    happy weekend everyone x

    Oh dear,
    Yes it was for me. My head was buzzing when I first started LL.
    I hope it settles down soon for you.
    One word of advice - try not to keep weighing yourself all the time. It's easy to become obsessed. All scales are different, your weight will fluctuate during the day.
    I used to just get weighed once a week at LL.
    It's hard, but you soon get used to it.
    Hope you are having a good visit with your Nan.
    Try and distract yourself by having non food related stuff to do-
    maybe a walk, coffee with a friend, lovely bubbly bath, do your nails, read a book, etc etc.

    Hi hun, sorry you arent feeling too good. Try to do something to take your mind off how you are feeling! A nice bubble bath or paint your nails, go for a nice walk when your gran has gone home maybe.

    The first few days are always the hardest, once you get your first WI out the way it will spur you on for sure, as I am sure the 6lb seen already has done.

    You can do this really you can, stay focused on your end goal and keep posting I laways find that a good distraction. xx

    Interested in the hairdressing idea. You'd be a good advert, you've got lovely hair. xx

    Hey hun, nice to here you had a good afternoon with your grna, bless her giving you some pennies. Well spent though, I love reading trashy mags and checking out the fashion sections and seeing what all the celebs are wearing and doing with their hair and makeup.

    As for your plan to go exercise, just be very careful because it can impact on your weightloss and also remember you are on a vlcd so it isnt always advised.

    Have a great evening xxx

    Hi Claire,

    Am doig ok thanks, day 6 has come round quite quickly really.

    I have been still cooking meals for the family and dont feel too bad doing so and looks as if I have lost around 9 pounds in these 6 days so all good.:)

    Sorry to hear you were feeling sick all day, I have had the odd wave of nausea but soon gone, hope you are feeling better now.
