Let me start off by saying this time around feels nothing like it did the second time around. At least not so far *Knock Wood*… I am hungry yes, and it’s uncomfortable and frustrating and I’m cranky as all heck…. but I don’t feel the drain that I did last time, nor do I feel like I’m starving myself to death.
Can I get a happy dance? Hells yeah I can! *Insert all the happy dances here*
That’s not to say though that this is at all pleasant, or fun right now. I’ve got all fingers and toes crossed that once I slip into the magical state of ketosis, that the discomfort will go away. I know it will take awhile to slip into the groove and find my stride……….. but at least for now I’m thankful that I don’t feel so weak as I did last time. I even managed a walk on my lunch! Not a long walk mind you… but a walk nonetheless.
I can go usually 2 hours between shakes before the hunger really sets in right now (which is WAY better than the 30 seconds to a minute of last time), and I am able to sleep the night without waking up hungry (also unlike last time)… I am more tired than usual, but I don’t expect that to last forever.
All in all, right now, I’m feeling pretty good, and am heading out to the kitchen to make my 4th shake for the day ;).
Here’s to hoping day 3 goes better than today, and not half as good as day 4 will be 😀
