    Sorry to moan...!
    I feel dreadful today. I have been on a shopping trip with my friend for her birthday and have got home from town feeling headachey, light headed and knackered. I don't understand why? Everyone else seems to be full of beans when in ketosis but I could just collapse on the couch and lie there all night.
    Is this normal? I am drinking my water and having my shakes?

    Hey Ellie..
    Sorry to hear you are feeling rough..
    Perhaps because you have been busy all day and rushing around you feel a little light headed.. Drink lots of water.. have a nice relaxing bath.. i do get days where I feel a little weak but it does pass..
    Chin up your doing fab x

    Thanks Curly. I will drink a pint of water and see if that helps. The ironic thing is, I could see a difference in those mirrors today and I honestly want to do this! Maybe I should have a really early night! x

    Maybe you've picked up a viral infection - there's lots going around. Hope you feel better soon.

    I have to confess I've been doing SS+ for about three months now and have never had that energy rush. I normally get home from work & go to sleep for an hour (mind I did that before I started CD!)

    I think if you've been on your feet shopping for a long time then feeling tired or lightheaded is pretty normal, just take it easy for the rest of the day.

    Hey, I often get tired days. I know CD gives you all the vits you need, but I've found my energy has picked up since taking a multi-vit in addition to my 3 tetras. Not sure if that will be for everyone.

    Failing that, like others have said, just relax. You're doing so well :)

    Thanks Watergirl!
    Am hammering the water which is helping I think - so I was probably dehydrated!
    4 weeks ago I would have treated myself to a load of stodge for my tea but no way am I giving up. I get little tingly thrills in my tum at the thought of being a size 12 and I know this will all be worth it!

    Hi All

    Just want to say thanks for all the lovely support!
    I am going to talk to my CDC on Tuesday about how pooey I am feeling. According to my mother I am 'the colour of boiled sh*te', which is a technical term I believe she picked up in medical school..
    So! Fake tan tonight I think! I WILL get through this xxx
