Lisa`s first and hopefully only cambridge journey
Ive been looking on this site for a few weeks and most people suggest starting a diary so here`s my attempt at one.
So I`ll start with the basics, my name is Lisa and this is my first ever attempt at the Cambridge diet and hopefully it will be my only attempt at this.
I have done many diets in the past some with semi success but have got into really bad habits and since my relationship broke down last year and now I live on my own these habits have got worse.
I have an unhealthy relationship with food which ive had for years so im hoping that by restricting the choices I have to eat will help me break some habits and lose weight fast.
My starting weight is 14stone 12 so I have about 4.5 stones to lose.
I have decided to just try and take one day at a time and trying not to think about the long term as that's a bit scary at the moment. As I only have myself to cook for im hoping this makes things easier. I am doing ss+ as the thought of no food at all and not chewing anything didn't appeal to me.
I have decided not to tell anyone I know about me trying this diet for at least a few weeks as I fear I will get negative comments from friends and family seen as its so low calorie.
So I started this last Thursday so have just completed day 5 - so far have not found it too bad, had a couple headaches and mouth is very dry despite drinking 2.5-3litres of water a day - have no idea whether im in ketosis yet. I did have a works leaving do to attend sat night but I drove so stuck to water and then chose some protein with stir fried veggies but they came with a sauce so hope I haven't done any damage.
Could really do with some support and motivation and if I can help you too then all the better so whether you are far into your own journey or just starting I would love to hear from you - any tips would be great.
My first weigh in will be thursday evening so on my 8th day - heres hoping for a good loss.
Feeling optimistic and in a good place at the moment lets hope it lasts (my track record isn't good)
Lisa x :)
