Weight Watchers is making me sleepy!

Being on a diet is making me very tired. Will this go away as I get used to it or am I doomed to being tired until I inevitably give up on the diet?

I just started Weight Watchers a few days ago. Now I am unbelievably tired, even though I am sleeping a normal amount, not working more than usual, etc. Is this normal for being on a calorie-restricted diet? Will the tiredness fade as my body gets used to the diet? If the tiredness doesn't fade, how do I work around it to continue with my normal life?
As a data point I am currently a BMI of about 22, looking to go down to about 20.8. So not currently overweight, and not looking to lose a whole lot of weight. I just have to lose a dress size in a few months due to some hilarious circumstances that aren't really relevant here.
