Hello all!!

I'm nearly at the end of my third week of lifestyle change. Did experience some dizziness and cravings the first ten days or so. That has all passed and I'm feeling good. Down about 15 lbs., and feeling GREAT!! BP is also down a fair amount, as well. I know that is pretty rapid weight loss, but am quite active, biking 6 miles a day, and trying to walk another 2, most days.

Thank you all for the support and good wishes. It's nice to know help and support is just a mouse click away!!

Will have blood work in 2 weeks and am anxious to see the numbers.

Thanks to you all who have responded to my previous posts.

That's great Diamonddaddy.  Just the first couple of weeks are a quick weight loss, after that it will slow down to a nice [url=http://www.fattoskinny.com/]weight loss[/url] pace.  Good luck with your bloodwork!

Glad to know the dizziness is normal!  Only had a little but it was a bit disconcerting.  Are headaches normal during the first couple weeks?  I've been getting one almost every day, not bad, just kinda there.  I can't possibly be dehydrated I'm drinking enough to keep a large fish afloat!  Thanks! ;D

Hi Jen! :)

Headaches are VERY common during sugar detox.
I'm glad to hear that yours is mild and that you are drinking lots of water.

Water really does help.
Also, drinking a glass of very cold (ice) water when you think your hungry is a good way to find out if what you're feeling is REAL hunger or something else.
What you do today is what matters!
