Hello there, Welcome to My Cambridge Diet, from Day 1 to Goal.
I hope this journey will tell the story of my battle to become a normal healthy weight as well as inspire others and help explain that at times it can be hard, but the results are worth it !!!
1 Day to Go - 17th June 2009.
CDC Came to see me and explained the diet, I had tried CD once before I only lasted until 8pm on Day 1 !
A bit of background ! I am 34 years old, married with 2 daughters aged 9 and 5.
I LOVE Food ! And I am greedy ! I love everything that's bad for me and I have tried every diet going, even slimming pills.
My weight was 17 stone in June 2004 - I am 5'6 so this was aroound 6 stone overweight. How did it get this far ? When did my 14's become 16's, 16's become 18's ?
I lost 4 and a half stone by September 2005 to get married (12 stone 7lbs) by WW.
The following years I went up and down between 12.8 and 14.9, usually by over-eating then a faddy diet. I learnt NOTHING ! I never learnt or understood anything about my weight issues.
Returned to WW and got so despondent with half a pound here and there, when I got annoyed - I ate !!!! Oh you have lost half a pound....well done !
Well Done ? I worked so hard for that ? I am going to have fish and chips in protest !
So I am now the most I have ever been since June 04 - 14 stone 12lbs
I am depressed, feel fat, frumpy, unconfident, jealous of my friends. My clothes are tight, I look in the mirror and hate the person I am. If one more person says 'But you have such a pretty face' I think I will stick a poker up their you know what !
I need to do this, my husband said 'I love you just the way you are' I replied 'But I don't love myself'.
I have 21 packs of shakes, soups, porridge.
I said goodbye to carbs tonight by having Pizza and Chips.
This isn't going to be easy, but wow what a forum this is ? If I feel down, I will come and read the posts from forum members, see their results, look in awe at their photos !
Roll on Day 1 !
