Sorry to be such a moan but I’m really having a horrible time. Since starting the diet 9 days ago I’ve been feeling progressively more and more I’ll. So far I’ve passed out 3 times. Checked my bp afterwards and it was around my normal hypertensive range. Minimal exertion leaves me dripping with sweat to the extent I have a towel glued to me.
I’ve been married 30 odd years to my soulmate. We don’t argue and usually are giggling about thinking the same thoughts, the other verbalizing what you were about to say. Now I could happily rip out his throat and feed it to the cats. I actually really dislike him at times which is new. We constantly bicker. He’s decided 800 cals just isn’t enough for him which is fair doos. He’s eating much less, even when he’s eating non diet it tends to be berries and crime fraiche. The other night I was like a harridan screaming at him to the extent he threw me a bowl of strawberries and a cube of cheese.
I’m shaking all the time, sweating, my mouth tastes like a sewer, to add insult to injury apart from the time I ate my brown of berries I’m keeping to the diet and following the recipes in the books, I’m not adding extras to the recipes and our portion size has markedly reduced. We aren’t having our “pudding” every night which was a very large portion of ice cream and often something extra on top.
In8 days, I’ve lost 3 lbs. I’m really feeling despair at this point. I feel so out and out ill. My muscles are so sore that it reminds me of starting the gym many years ago before I was disabled. I’m so incredibly stressed and I seem to be on a knife edge.
Sorry about the novel of woe. I just don’t know what to do
