Is this normal?

I’m 47 years old and I started on a no snacks, three meals, no sugar / flour protocol almost three weeks ago. I’ve lost some weight, but I also feel like I’m losing my mind a bit. I mention my age because I am undoubtedly in perimenopause as well.

I find myself feeling easily hurt by my family this week. My husband forgot to order me Christmas presents, I was so upset. My son refused to do a simple chore, urgh. My husband was just offered a new wonderful job for way more money and I was thrilled for a few hours, then began feeling lots of old churn around money.

Is this kind of emotional churn normal when we stop buffering? Also, I cheated last night and had chocolate. I just had to say that. 🙂
