    Starting CD tomorrow. Nervous & need friends!

    Hello everyone

    I am brand new to this site and having read lots of posts on here I decided to sign up and start my own blog to assist me with my journey and hopefully make some friends to give me advice.

    I am starting CD tomorrow. I am meeting my CDC today for the first time and I am so nervous!!

    I am 5 ft 10 and currently weigh 14 stone 3. I emailed my CDC yesterday who suggests I start on stage 2. I'm cool with that but want to know will my results still be good?! Will I go into ketosis? And if so, are the headaches as bad as I read?!!

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Welcome and good luck! I was on step 2 for most of my Cambridge time and I'm working my way up the steps now. If you do step 2 you might go into ketosis. You have to choose the foods for your meals though. So the no carb foods like chicken rather than chick peas for your protein will put you into ketosis.

    The head aches are bad but drink plenty of water and take a painkiller if you need to. Especially if you have to work. Just know that once you are through that but you don't have to feel rubbish like that again. It's the best way to make sure you don't cheat. The idea of having to go through the headaches etc (I call it the low carb flu) again stopped me cheating!

    Welcome along hun! We're a friendly bunch!

    What is your BMI? Why stage 2? Ketosis takes 100% 3 days - 5 days, you really need to be 100% though hun. Its painful but worth it
    Week 1 - 5: -22lbs and -15.5 inches
    week 6 - 10: -11lbs and -12 inches
    Week 11 - 15: -10.5lbs and -12.5 inches
    Week 16 - 20: -5lbs and -6.5 inches
    Week 21 - 25: +8lbs and +4.5 inches (Barbados)
    Week 26: +5lbs and -2 inches (last cwp weigh in 12st7lb)
    Week 27: -6lbs (12st1lbs)

    Total Loss: 41.5lbs and 44 inches

    My bmi is 27.7.... I wish to loose around 3 stone. I have always said that the mirror is more important than the scales so over all, I just want to "look" slimmer. I hope this diet works!

    In my job, we don't really have a specific break time so in a way I believe that will help. Although I go back to work on Friday and I have 4 early shifts to do and as easy as they are, on the early shifts, the whole team meets up for breakfast in the canteen!! I might have to go away and be busy somewhere because I fear the first few days of this diet are the hardest.

    Meeting my CDC in just over an hour, excited :-)

    Hey all

    First day going good. I'm very excited about this journey .

    Had my shake this morning, and on my water ?

    Got a dull pressure headache between the eyes on my eyebrows though and my eyes feel sleepy! I feared this would happen as headaches get me big time. Although i am a self confessed sugar, carbs and caffine addict so I know withdrawals are painful.

    I felt really sick and light headed for about 5 minutes randomly earlier but kept telling myself after a few days this will go and it went away.

    How is everyone??

    You sound really positive and that's a really good mindset, this diet is much more mental than physical so you're halfway there.
    Just keep reminding yourself why you're doing this.
    You're doing great, keep going!

    Hi there

    I had my 2nd weigh in today and lost another 2 pounds.

    I'm very happy with that, especially as it has only been 5 days since my last weigh in, and it's my TOTM. Plus I lost 9 pounds on the first week so that's 11 pounds in 12 days! Yay

    My CD consultant goes away for 2 weeks so I've got 2.5 weeks to smash more weight off and make her proud when she next sees me lol

    Well done.

    Hi Genie hows it going? Im new to this too just had my second weigh in yesterday and lost 6lbs on sole source plus so well done for losing that much on stage 2. Was about your starting weight at 14st 2. How did you find the headaches? Mine were awful but they are pretty much gone now I'm in full ketosis although I still get really lightheaded if I stand up too quickly. Have you been experiencing this?

    Hi there!
    My starting weight was 13.13 ... I now weigh 13.2.

    I can't say my headaches were awful, I did however experience terrible nausea. That's passed now and I have odd days where I'm hungry but just drink more water. My daily intake of water is between 2.25L and 3L.

    Is it your first time on CD and how much do you want to lose?
