I've rejoined Sw and am half way through week 1. Yesterday and today too (but not as bad) I've had a stinking headache. I think it's a lack of sugar! I do have a sweet tooth and have used syns for a choc buscuit at night. I'm just wondering is this normal? The last time I did Sw was before my wedding and it worked well, but then I had a baby and developed such a sweet tooth - I always used to be a crisp person. I was very good last night and went to bed rather than going for the chocolate bar in the fridge that I'm sure was calling my name.
Could the headaches be caused by dehydration? You may be having more fibre than you used to, and you need plenty to drink. My SW Consultant tells us to have three 500ml bottles of water a day, as well as usual teas, etc.
I'm now on week 12 and 2 stone down, but I remember those week 1 (and 2) headaches and the mega tiredness in weeks 3-6. I do think reducing sugar is something to do with it. Drink plenty of fluids and use your syns for treats. It gets better I promise
