I've been lurking on these forums for quite some time trying to decide if Cambridge was right for me. Two weeks ago I made plans to go overseas for my 30th birthday and realised I'm too big to feel comfortable on a beach in a swim suit so that was the kick up the backside I needed to make the decision to go for it!
I have a very busy job, barely have time to make breakfast so it's usually toast on white bread as I'm running out of the door, no lunch then eat anything I can get my hands on when I get home which has seen the weight pile on
I went to see a lovely CDC last week who put me at ease and was very positive about me reaching my goal by next spring.
Apart from around 30 minutes of nausea and headache on day 2 I've found it pretty easy and think I've been lucky that I have not experienced any other side effects, if anything, I feel better than I have in years! I'm having porridge for breakfast, a tetra pack at lunch and alternate between shakes and soup in the evening.
So, because I wasn't experiencing any of the side effects I wasn't expecting big results, but after being weighed this morning I've gone from 17st 2lbs to 16st 6lbs in a week so I'm really happy with that!
This weight loss has definitely given me a boost and I'm hoping for a steady loss between now and Christmas. I plan to have Christmas week off CDC then straight back on in the new year,
