    Cambridge Diet Slimming Buddy

    Hi!
    New to this website and am after a diet buddy
    After putting on nearly 3 stone this past year I've decided enough is enough! Tipping the scales at nearly 16stone, now is the time for change. I need someone to help me along though!
    I'm 20 years old, training to be a midwife and am booking in to see a consultant about the Cambridge diet!
    It anyone has any tips all are welcome

    Hi Hayley, welcome to Mini's. You should be able to lose your 3 stones fairly quickly with Cambridge and once you get past the first few days you should find it relatively easy. I am nearing goal so not ideal as a buddy, but I am sure you will have plenty of volunteers from people starting out.

    You have come to the right place for tips - the people on here are great and wonderful support.

    Good luck

    Hello Hayley,

    I will be seeing my consultant today and will get started tomorrow. I would love to pair up so that we can motivate each other.

    I'm also starting at about 14 stones with 3-3.5 stones to lose.

    This weight loss journey would be challenging however I am very determined and I am ready to support you every step of the way

    Good luck on your journey !!

    As other people have said, once your past the first week it's easy! Once you see the loss from the first week you will be motivated to carry on. I did the diet 2 years ago and lost 13kg!!! It stayed off for a quite while, sadly I had medical issues and had to put weight back on to do tests etc, then had family dramas so the weight stayed on! So here I am back again!!
    think positive, and remember that if your struggling don't fall off the wagon and eat rubbish have a small piece of chicken or fish.
    Goal 1 - get to 10st. - 63.5kg. DONE.
    Goal 2 - get to 9st 6lb. - 60kg
    Goal 3 - get to 9st. - 57kg

    Hi Hayley - hope things are going well for you. No doubt you will have been told to drink plenty of water - I find it really hard to do, especially when I am at work or driving somewhere and don't want to be in the loo every five minutes, but it really does work.

    Have a good weekend.

    Hi. I'm on week 2, and have around 6 stone to lose. Everyone is right, the diet feels really easy now, and I am noticing my body shrinking so that is motivating me to stick with it. Good luck for your first week!
    Hi I'm Anna
    I am starting again, after a couple of months away. I had lost 21lb, now I'm continuing all the way to goal this time

    Nice to hear from so many of you!
    End of day 3 and am so shocked! No hunger at all, not gonna lie I'm thinking about food but not from hunger!
    Occasional headaches but nothing serious!
    Feeling so positive getting weighed Friday so we'll see if I've lost anything!
    Turns out I'm starting at 15st 5lbs and want to get down to 10st 7lbs so quite a way to go, fingers crossed! X

    Hi again. I'm on very similar stats to you, so it will be interesting to compare how we do. I started on 15 stone 11lb and also want to get down to 10 stoneish, but I'd be happy with anywhere under 11 I think.
    I've just had my 2nd week weigh in and so far I've lost 10 pounds!! I'm over the moon! I have had moments of doubt on this diet when the scales didn't go down, but now I'm convinced it works. We just have to stick at it and be patient I found the first week the hardest, probably days 4,5 and 6 were the hardest, but after that it's been easy, apart from a bit of hunger and the odd craving, but you get that on any diet. However this one it's really worth it because it works so quickly! Good luck and keep going!

    Hello everybody, it's my first day on the CD, I'm a newbie to all of this and am on Step 2, so 3 packs a day and a small meal. I'm struggling a bit as I'm really hungover from my last hurrah meal and have already screwed up :/

    But it's so good to see people here and we can give each other mutual support - I'm 15 stone 5lbs and 5 ft 6" ... My target weight is 12 stone, seems like such a long way to go! But looking forward to getting off some bulk in time for summer

    Hope that everyone is having a nice day.

    Today is my 4th day and havent cheated, it went really well to be honest. Was dreading day 3 and 4, Day 3 was bad but today I didn't actually feel hungry. Am on sole source as well but I eat 4 packs due to weight. I weigh 20 stone but only looking to shift about 6 stone due to my muscle density. I hope I can make it all the way

    Hi everyone. To you guys on your 4th day, I found that the hardest day, so if you have got through day 4, well done. Keep going because after day 6 it really is plain sailing. I have no headaches or anything now. Only issues are feeling peckish and cravings, but drinking water or tea usually helps that. Oh and Pollaay, I want to get 4 stone off for bloodstock festival I'd love to go to Glastonbury one day, you must be so excited! I've lost 10lb already in 2 weeks so I think it's totally possible! Good luck everyone!
