Smile Hello New And Looking For Help And Support

Started Ideal Protein Thursday I was SUPER PSYCHED but freaking out a bit on day 3 and feel overwhelmed... Am I doing this right!! My "coach" is great as far as texting or calling right back but I am hoping to find some friends/sisterhood just starting as well as some PROS to help me in this journey.
I feel like I am incredibly bloated... is this normal? If so how long does it last? If not what am I doing wrong?
I stood on the scale this morning and it showed zero loss am I expecting results too soon? Fretting that since I am actually eating "more and more often" then I used to I am gaining -not sure if this bloat is the increased water and veggie intake.
PS.. I also have lupus and am on several medications - any others out there with auto-immune issues and or on medications doing IP
Posted this in introductions too... hope that is okay - new to forums

If you are feeling bloated you might be constipated, which is pretty common on this plan due to the amount of protein you eat. Just make sure you eat lots of lettuce and get lots of veggies in.

Are you drinking all of your water? I find that if I slack off in that area I got a bloated feeling.
