    Feeling bi-polar and need encouragement!

    Hello. I am on round 1 day 3 of vlcd. I have never felt my moods swing so violently before. I can be so relaxed one minute and totally anxious and irritable the next minute to balling my eyes out right after. Is this normal or am I losing it??? Besides that I am also getting the runs really yellow in colour. I have lots of energy, have no hunger except for at meal time and I am on the patch so I don't have to adjust my dose. I am down 3 lbs in 3 days so I really want to fight to stay on hcg as long as I can.

    Did anybody have a rough 1st week and did it get better?

    WOW!!!! I must be the official thread killer!!! Lol

    I am day 6 and have lost 5lbs plus 2 lbs load weight. I had to take my patch off yesterday as I was mentally going crazy! I don't want to stop this diet but after taking the patch off yesterday I am feeling much better today. I am still eating on protocol and my hunger is starting to return. I have been thinking of putting a new patch on tomorrow and seeing how many days I can go before I start feeling crazy bipolar and need to take it off.

    I know that isn't really cycling, but if I wear the patch a few days on and a few days off, while following the protocol, do you think it will do more harm than good? It is the only way that I think I can get through this.

    Hi Kat, I am extremely Moody and irritable too. On the shots tho, I think I'm like this cause I'm so nauseous the first half of the day and starving after dinner. Doc rec I take shots at night for nausea, but still need help with the mood swings or my kids are gonna lock me up!

    everyone has a rough 1st week. you're not getting the carbs you're used to


    bipolar is much more than being irritable/moody because you're hungry

    I agree with one of the above members...being moody and being bi-polar are two very different things.

    Basically, I think the first week or so of any diet is difficult. When food has been a way to stuff one's feelings, or is used as comfort or to simply forget troubles (as some people use alcohol or drugs)...it
    will be similar to a withdrawal. If you love sugar and chocolate, for example, you will experience
    highs and lows. Emotionally, you will probably cry at strange and unexpected times because the feelings
    that have long been stuffed finally come out. And sometimes even anger may come up when you think things like: "Why do I have to be on this restricted diet, eating nothing and (fill in the blank) eats like
    a horse and doesn't gain weight? Not fair!" I had to deal with a lot of self-condemnation for having gained
    back weight I had kept off for five years. I had worked so hard on that previous diet (non HCG) only to
    gain most of it back when I suffered an injury that left me bedridden. As I started this diet, I felt like
    one big failure and I had to deal with that.

    Basically, as the different emotions came up for me, I just let them be. If I felt like crying, I cried. If I felt
    upset, I took a walk and worked it off that way. I let people know that I was not going to be "available" for
    about two weeks. Having done a VLCD, it takes two to three weeks to start to get in the groove of any
    lifestyle change.

    Yes, the first week is difficult. The thing that finally took the edge off for me....was seeing the scale go
    down. That really, really helped.

    Hang in.

    It does get better.

    I really really dislike those patches. I would get some shots and start over.
