Oh, I hear your pain! Your body is adjusting big time right now, especially if you haven't really done fat and meat for a while. I think if you hang in there and keep it really clean so your body can clean up all the stuff that isn't good, then you might be surprised at what happens. It really does work, don't give up! I am just starting here too and it is scarey - there is that part of me that says, 'you know if this doesn't work then I am stuck with this fat, flabby body forever and that is just terrifying!' But, if we hang in there and cheer each other on to persevere through the bad spots we can all celebrate together when it all starts to come together. I have about 80 lbs to lose, I am way beyond flabby and yet I do feel such hope and desire to go the full course this time. It has really helped me to quit the carbs and sugar cold turkey, my cravings are much more manageable now that my body is starting to transition into a better mode of being.
