    7 stone. 10 months. Can it be done?

    Hi everyone.

    I hope you don't mind me posting. I am starting the cambridge diet tomorrow evening/Friday.

    This is my first ever attempt at a 'proper' diet. I am currently around 17st (not 100% as I have dodgy scales) and I am a size 22 at worst, 18 at best. I am aiming for a goal weight of around 8 1/2 stone (hopefully size 8/10). I understand that is a harsh goal but before pregnancy 2.5 yrs ago I was a comfortable size 10 and feel if I can put on weight quickly I should hopefully lose the same way.

    I am not sure whether I'm on SS or what step it will be. My consultant said I'd be on Red1 which is 4 shakes/porridge and 1 pint of skimmed milk per day.

    I'm hoping that they will allow me to skip the milk though as I'm not too fond of it.

    I hope you don't mind me posting my journey. In real life I basically hide away unable to talk openly about my weight so hope you don't mind! Also it'll be nice to talk to people going through the same things.

    sorry about the essay!

    Hi,

    Just thought I'd reply as I will be starting next Tuesday in an attempt to lose as much weight as I can before my wedding in July.

    At 5ft1 and over 14 stone I hoped 3 stone would be realistic.

    I'm afraid I can't answer your other questions as I'm meeting with my consultant for the first time tomorrow, but hopefully you know there are other people out there
    Week 1 Starts Tuesday 4th March!

    Hi there!

    Just thought I'd pop in to say that I'm starting tomorro and currently weigh in at 16.10?

    Having previously did this and every single diet out there going I've decided that I've had enough of being a paranoid hermit and need to finally tackle this!

    I think that is a realistic goal, I met my consultant yesterday and she told me that I could down to 10.7 in 18 weeks so here goes...!

    Good luck and it would be nice to buddy up!

    Thanks for replying! I'm meeting my consultant for the first time tomorrow too.

    Yes it would be great if we could all buddy up. We can share the struggles together and maybe pull each other through.

    Yes defo! It really is helpful to be able to share stuff with others who are going through the same struggles and help, support and encourage one another. This weight/dieting lark ain't an easy thing!

    Let us know how it all goes tomorrow!

    I'm slightly nervous about starting tomorrow, I just want to hurry up and get into ketosis and get this weight off, going to take it one day at a time and try not to think of it as such a mahooosive mountain to climb, more like each day we do this is one step closer to goal?

    Yes one little day at a time. Sounds less daunting. It doesn't help that I'm the type of person who needs to see results to be motivated. Hence I normally give up after day 1.

    Think I'm going to hibernate over the weekend. Try to sleep through the hunger. (I make it sound too easy to myself that I expect it to be easy).

    Do you have weekly goals?

    Yes I'm exactly the same as you, when I'm on any diet I fully expect to lose at least a pound a day or else I get frustrated and go off on a binge gene the reason I'm overweight and u happy with myself, it's a vicious cycle and I need to change it pronto!

    I'm hoping to lose about 3 stone in roughly 6 weeks and that's all because I've been checking out other peoples threads and that seems to be quite the norm in that time span, I guess I would love to be 14 stone something because I've spent so much time losing and putting on the same 7 pounds since last year and seem to be stuck in the 16's lol

    How are you feeling about seeing the Cambridge lady tomorrow?

    Awww you'll be fine, you're taking a big step in the right direction! Just think of the transformation, that's what I'm trying to focus on right now!

    So today has been good so far, just had the chicken and mushroom soup which I love and about a litre of water down so far, just want today to be over and done with!!!

    I think il struggle if I dont like a flavour so I think this 1st week willbe hardest as next week il know what to choose.

    Think the bit il find hardest is the drinking water. I enjoy my morning cup of tea too much!

    Yeah bout hour and half left to go.

    The worst thing im dreading is being more than 17st .. I stopped weighing myself after seeing the 17!
    Think I may invest in digi scales though as seeing the pounds go will keep me going! ( I hope!)


    I know it tastes foul black! I like my sugar too.

    Is there a certain part of day youl find hard?

    U might be surprised! I totally hear you on that, it becomes quite scary weighing yourself when you just see the numbers creeping up and up! Remember whatever your weight is today is just a temporary weight and will soon go down!

    I'm finding it very hard this very minute? Kids are home from school so getting their dinner prepared is a hard business because I'm soooo hungry!!!

    Help! Lol!
