Newbie-3rd feb start :)
Im new to cambridge n jus started on the 3rd of feb. Week 1 went ok for me, was pretty much focused until my first weigh in... n then had a major slip :( I lost 6 lbs, which i know is good, but i guess lookin at everones losses... i was expecting bigger numbers. Anyways, back on track n gonna try stayin positive n stick to it.
The reason ive joined today is because i think it will help me to stay on track n not fall of the wagon again. Need all ur support n tips.... also any newbies?
Hi Zara ;) well done on getting thru week 1 :) I've just posted a new thread stating I'm starting tomorrow. I've done it before and it's fab if u stick to it. Weight drops off really quick. I lost 2.5 stone in 7 weeks but then had time off plan for Xmas and just starting again!! I've only put 7lbs on tho but still need to lose similar amount. Good luck
I started on Sat 9th Feb so today is day 3!
3stone loss is first target!
This morning was awful...I had the shakes.
I too hope all the great support on here can help me too!
Hi Zara, well done on your first week, it's defos the hardest part then gets a little easier each day. I'm on day 17 SS, lost 9lbs weeks 1 and got my second weigh in on Wednesday evening, quite nervous!! Good luck with your Journey, I look forward to reading how your doing :) x
Hey slippergirl, all the best for ur start today. Ur previous loss of 2.5st in 7 wks is so encouraging, I feel there's hope for me too ;)
Lasttimer, u must be in ketosis by now... it gets easier once u are. I know the shakes are a bit difficult to stomach first thing, but remind urself why ur doin cd in the first place :)
Gemz084, day17 WOW! Inspiration. Goodluck for ur weigh in tomorrow, ill be lookin out for ur loss. I'm sure ul do fab :)
I'm off to buy some sparkling water for a change. How much water does everyone manage in a day??? My limit is 2ltrs. Is it true, the more u drink the more u lose???
Hope everyone has a great day. Happy cding xxx
First day going ok..... Had choc shake for breakfast and same for lunch. 2 ltrs of water and porridge for tea ;) know that's a bit upside down but like the porridge and feels as tho I am 'eating' :) will steadily drink another litre of water tonight and hope to feel ok tomorrow.......
How's everyone else getting on?? ;)
ooh doing well slippergirl! I'm on day 2 myself! All going well at present, though i'm ready for my next shake now, might mix up my mousse and have half now :D
How does everybody make their soups, says no boiling water so do you all use kettle water hit or just hot tap water?
I just wait for water from the kettle to go off the boil for 5 mins - I think tap water would not be hot enough. Good luck to all you other newbies too, I am on day 5 today, first weigh in tomorrow and am doing ss+
Hi I do make my soups with boiled kettle water, they cool down so quickly with water that's just hot from the kettle that they need to be microwaved for 15-20 secs anyway so if its about nutrient depletion then they'll deplete whichever way I make them so I just do it with water just boiled from the kettle xxx
Zozozela I too have weigh in tomorrow but am on day 6 today, how are you finding it? Xxx
Not too bad, I have done it previously and this time is harder. I must confess that I developed a few cheats before and I'm having to work hard not to use them - I would only be cheating myself afterall! I tend not to get massive weight loss on week 1 but steadily lose 4lbs each week so I'm hoping for 5-6lb loss tomorrow - how about you and how much do you want to lose?
I have done lighter life before 3 times but never stuck to it fr more than 7 weeks at the longest, I did lose 25lbs the longest time and I did get really good first week losses but I'm trying not to compare this diet with that one and trying to keep this as a complete fresh start like I have never done it before. I would like at least 7 but if it's not that then hey ho, it'll be a loss none the less :-) I would like to lose 3 stone at first then I'm undecided whether I'll go on to the next step or do another 1-2 stone after tht, I may lose 3 do the step ups then have the summer and go back on soul source + til I reach my long term goal.
This plan is a lot more flexible than ll as if I need to eat something I can have a meal from the list provided, which hopefully means I will be less likely to cheat, I had 2 eggs last night, made in to an omlette as I was craving pretzels, so I am chuffed that I didn't cheat :-) xxx
Good for you. I have also had to treat it as a completely new thing because I was getting so cross at myself for gaining the 6stone I had lost - keep in touch and we can keep each other focussed - good luck for tomorrow night.
My hubby did ll and loved it. He lost 3st 4 years ago and has kept it off - I hate him sometimes - obviously it was down to luck and nothing to do with the 30 miles he runs each week and the long bike rides and the way he manages his diet :-) - we'll get there too I'm sure
Yes we will get there!!
I was totally disgusted with my weight gain, I was the heaviest I've been in 16 years, horrible but I'm determined this is the last time I'll be this heavy!! My oh can eat what he likes, cycles 30+ miles a week too!! Lol :-)
What did you lose this week? I hope you had a great loss, mines was 8lbs :-) can't believe it's almost weigh in time again, Monday will be here before I know it xxx
