Desperation Day 2018 is on Tuesday, February 13, 2018: Should I fast for a day or two?
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 is Desperation Day 2018.
Hi, I do feel for you, you sound like you are at desperation point. I know just how you feel as I've been on many diets in the past and been in the same situation as you.
What I've found is that nearly all diets work but what I've always done is flipped from diet to diet. I've been swayed easily from fad diet to fad diet. If only I'd just stuck with one diet for a reasonable time say 8 weeks it would have made a huge difference but the minute I went off the "current diet" I'd use that as an excuse to have splurge on a load of goodies and then I'd be heavier than when I started and then I'd move on to the next diet and the cycle would start again.
There is a diet that Dr Michael Moseley advocates where you eat normally for 5 days and then on the other 2 days you limit your calories to 500 calories if you are a girl or 600 if you are a man. There is some further info at
So my advice is find a diet that suits you and stick to it. Plain and simple. Don't go on a juicing diet if you don't like juice. Don't go on the Protein only diet( ) if you aren't mad on protein. Find something that you think you can do most of the time and then DO IT for at least 8 weeks. If you don't stick to the diet one day, don't blow it and eat like mad and give up. If you have a bad diet day just get straight back on the diet the next day, don't delay. You've proabably not caused as much damage as you think.
Try not to stress... I know it's easier said than done but just keep it simple and stick to it.
Good Luck :-)
Period lasted one day and a week early?
It has only been 6 days since you had sex and it takes 7-10 days for the egg to travel and implant in the womb so the bleeding has nothing to do with pregnancy or cramps. Stress and the desperation of being pregnant can cause hormone problems and irregular periods. it took me 3 your of ttc before I got pregnant. Good Luck
reality for a day.?
Well written and a pure emotion.
The desperation and the urgency are simultaneous and so ur lines are good. The dangling between hope and dispair are good. Full of optimistic and realistic thoughts.
One suggestion... for becoming modern dont use words like
"shitty". You can use "dirty", "clumsy" "awful"
Let the english not forget english...
I think u take my advise positive
