    Morning chick,

    Day one today huh? Exciting!! I'm on day three now. I just want to get the first week out of the way really but I tell you what's lush, half a coconut shake n half a chocolate shake. It's like a bounty. Right nice!!

    Yeah the husband is wonderful and really supportive bless him. He's tried it before so knows how hard it is.

    I'm 18.4 starting and I'm 5 foot 8 tall. I'm currently a size 20. I'd love to be a 14, that'd make me happy. I've just landed a new job so I'll have leaving do's to get through as well as 2 weddings and 2 christenings soon. I'm planning on drinking diet coke and very little eating but know I'm going to have to cheat a little bit.

    We've been away last month so my jolly photos are all horrific but at least they'll class as starting photo's.

    How're you? Do you have much support? What're you're goals? I'd love to buddy up if you fancy? You'll have to tell me to shut up sometimes tho as I ramble on a lot

    Xx good luck today

    Hya hun,

    Great to hear from you!

    I haven't got any coconut shakes don't think consultant had them on her list?

    Do you have soups or just shakes?

    Are you in ketosis now? lol sorry all these questions...

    Great! you have a job! what do you do?

    Im a learning support assistant at a local primary school. Have been off for nearly 12 weeks now ( as had hysterectomy) glad that's over!!! getting back to normal now, so thought that's it, I gotta sort out my weight now once and for all! Have always been a yoyo dieter, up and down on scales, different diets ww and slimming world. Have lost before up to 4 stone but always get back into bad eating habits and put it on and more!!

    What day do you weigh in now? mine is thurdays....

    I have a hubby and two boys (8 and 15) My daughter passed away 4 years ago, she would be 18 next year! I guess my goals are to be around for my children, and to be able to do stuff with them (be more energetic and enthusiasm instead of saying no I dont want to go swimming etc because i'm embarrased about my size)

    I have a pair of levi's 501's 32 inch waist that I haven't worn since i got married 14 years ago! would love to be able to fit into them and feel sexy again!

    Have you got any tips yet? do you drink loads of water? Im a emotional eater so gotta think positive!
    It's great to have a buddy on here with someone who's going through the same as me! thanks

    good luck day 3!
    xx

    Hi ya,

    Just dropped the car up for mot so had a little walk home. Wonder how much that'll cost lol!! I'm a civil servant, I don't usually tell folk as its not looked upon favourably lol!! Working a late shift until 8pm

    I'm so sorry about your daughter, that's dreadful. You're so strong and brave. I really really am sorry. I don't have any children. I'm 30 and suffer with PCOS so am under the hospital for help with fertility. I'm hoping to be a mommy one day. My niece is 13 and is coming to live with us. My mom is quite poorly and my niece lives with her. My dad passed away really unexpectedly in feb so I'm making my mom move to a bigger house with us.

    I think I'm almost on ketosis. Sounds vile but I can tell by my wee lol. Ive Been really cold so i reckon I'm close. I'm on tetra ready mades and I've tried the bounty packets and a mango one for this week. I hate the products if I'm honest. Just the smell of the soups makes me feel bad. Shakes only for me. What you doing? The coconut packets and the mango ones are limited edition apparently.

    I'm caining the water. I really miss pop so am trying to neck loads of water. That's my only tip, that and sleep as much as you can in first week.

    I'm weighed at 8pm of a Monday night. My CDC is ace. Bit of a drive away but the ones by me ate crap. So are you being weighed one week today? Have you much to drop? I'm a 20 and want to be a 14 in my dreams lol.

    What's the plan for today then? Keeping busy to get you through? Sorry for rambling xx

    Hi there,
    I just typed out this long message for you and it would not send it, and now it's gone! lol bliming computers

    Never mind I'll try again.

    My mum's hubby is a civil servant as well ( he does late shifts once a week )

    where about's are you from?

    I'm so sorry about your dad, that must have been a real shock for you all. I understand a bit about how you must be feeling. My daughter passed away really suddenly, and I'm still getting my head round it now( usual questions like why her?) but I have my two boys who keep me going and smiling. Especially Arran ( he always talks to me about Rhiannon and what she was like and what she might be doing now)

    I hope your mum get's better too. So you will have a full house with your niece as well. That will be nice. MY mum lives about 100 miles away, so don't see her very often, but we chat every day on phone!.

    You will be a great mum one day! I must have sounded awful with me going on about my hysterectomy and everything. It's just such a relief not to be in pain every couple of weeks with heavy bleeding etc.

    Im sure you must be in ketosis now (have you got any wee sticks to pee on to check)? my CDC gave me some and said to check on Sunday/Monday and let her know.
    Have you done this diet before?

    I have one tetra pack to try but the others are soups and shakes ( can't have chew bars for couple of weeks)
    I had a toffee and walnut one this morning..... and surprisly it was yummy! I added more water to it as it was really thick!
    Soup for tea! gonna eat it with everyone at the table....I think the hardest part for me is going to be not actually eating food! i know its sounds wierd but food is like a comfort thing for me, and it makes me feel better, so by not eating and having shakes for a while my head has to get around that they are my food!

    I would love to be 9 stone! but I have not been that since my late teens! I am doing 1 stone at a time and at 15 stone 12 have some way to go! Im 5 ft 4 (short ars) so really need to loose the weight.
    I am feeling hungry now and peeing alot today as have been drinking water and redbush tea(love it)
    My CDC is really nice, I found her on the website and she was the first one that I rang up!....She's really supportive and texting me giving me encouragement!
    she doesn't live too far away. My weigh in is on a thursday! She took all my measurements ( too big) she has lost 6 stone! and kept it off, think that's the hardest bit keeping it off!

    Well gonna cook some fish fingers now for my nephew
    Love yourself first and everything else falls into line

    Hope you have a great rest of the day ( even though your at work)

    We can do this together! I just need a kick up the bum to get going and think long term and how good i'm going to feel!

    You too! It's great having a buddy to talk to who's doing the same thing! with the same goals!

    Take care Nat xx

    Hi ya Nat,

    How's it going? How was the nephew? Well behaved I hope lol. Must be hard cooking when ur not eating? I haven't cooked anything yet. He can cook his own.

    Please don't be sorry bout the fertility bit. It's my own fault for being fat. I'd catch otherwise apparently. According to the consultant anyway. I'm just so sorry about your daughter xxx.

    Home from work and friends just visited so my apologies for the late reply. Been a bit hungry today but feeling better now. Had two tetras and a bounty flavour mix up. Defo ordering more coconut ones next week! I'll have to post you one to try.

    I'm from Kidderminster if you know it. Where are you?

    I went down to 14 stone 11 before on cd. Was brilliant, I cheated at times but got straight back on it. I looked so much better. Three stone away from that at the mo. I'll get there I hope.

    It's great having someone to talk to on here. I've tried to buddy up before on the Cambridge site but it always goes tits up when someone cheats and goes offline.

    So have you told anyone you're doing cd? My hubby, mom and five colleagues know and that's all. I sat next to my boss today and he had an open box of choc biscuits on his desk. I sniffed them lol and he looked at me like I was mental. Did the trick tho.

    Day one almost done then or it is done if you're asleep. Well done!!! Two more bad ones to go and you should be plain sailing!!

    I'll leave you in peace as its getting late.

    Xx

    Hya!
    I look forward to your emails they spur me on! lol
    I'm not sure where Kidderminster is? I'm in West Wales (Pembrokeshire) Not far from Tenby? Don't know if you have heard of it? It's the back of beyond! No big shops around here, you have to travel to Swansea or Cardiff whick is a good couple of hrs travel away..... but on the plus side we have beautiful coastline and beaches!
    My mum and hubby/kids know that I am doing this but no one else, I want everyone to say WOW you look fab! Day one done was ok ~ evening hard after 7? adverts on tv for food and chocolate! so went to bed about 9? lol
    Day 2 today! and I gotta go food shopping I hate food shopping at the best of times, but when I can't eat any of it even worse! I have to remember it's just for three people now!
    Weekend's going to be hard I think! My brain normally switches to weekend mode (thinking I can pig out) I normally good in week and then weekend comes sometimes I have wine/chocolate/crisps etc .......it's like a vicious circle! never mind that's all gonna stop!
    Ye you will have to send us a coconut one? sounds yum!
    I had my spicy tomato soup for tea....was nice but I put too much water in it and it was too watery, won't make thatmistake again!!.I sat at the table with everyone but it was hard. I made them scrape their plates before they left kitchen so I wouldn't pick!
    I havread on here that some people say you can have coke zero? a can a day if you want? so long as it hasn't got citric acid in it

    Hya Hunni,

    I don't know what's wrong but I did a long message to you this morning and it wouldn't let me send it! blimin thing!
    So here goes again....
    Hope your having a great day 4?
    I'm doing ok, trying to keep busy, been food shopping ( I hate food shopping at the best of times but when I can't even eat any of it) lol
    I'm not sure where kidderminster is? I live in west Wales (pembrokeshire) as far west as you can go.... so no big shops here have to travel to swansea or Cardiff which is two hrs away by car. We do have beautiful beaches and coastline though which makes up for it. Maybe you have heard of Tenby? well I live not far from there. lol
    You will have to post me a coconut one? I dont think my CDC had them? lol I had a soup last night(spicy Tomato) was nice but put too much water in it, which made it too thin! never mind still ate it!
    How's your day going? you must be really proud of yourself, you must be in ketosis now and hopefully feeling a bit better?
    I'm really thirsty today, so been drinking loads( and me mouth is quite unpleasant even though I brushed my teeth) lol so something mustbe working hopefully!
    I have told my mum, Hubby/kids that i'm doing this so they can support me, but no one else.
    Went to bed about 9 ish last night, found that hard going.....all adverts on tv about food and my tummy was rumbling! lol
    I even cooked homemade chips and chicken for kids last night and sat there eating mysoup whilst theywere tucking in! well impressed with myself!
    Your lucky your husband fends for himself so you dont have the temptation!! Sometimes I forget that i'm not allowed to eat, it's just getting out of a habit!
    Hopefully your ok? hope car past MOT?

    Take care Nat xx

    Hi Nat,

    Yeah I know where you are!! I liked in north Wales for a bit. Llanerfyl for a while. Kiddy is near Worcester if you know it? Half way between worcs and Dudley.

    How's day two going? Well done so far. Day four is ok, not that hungry so I expect I'm in ketosis now. Should really look up those sticks to wee on lol. That'd tell me n make me laugh.

    Mot on car was fine thank you so that's all good. Working until four then pub for mates leaving do. Going to have to diet coke it. Hoping it won't knock me out of ketosis tho.

    We'll have to contact so I can post you a coconut one to mix up as a treat. I'm ordering plenty on Monday night before they run out. Drinking loads as normal again. Fair play in doing the home cooked chips n stuff, you're doing ace!! Have u done this before? If so how long did you last before cheating? Think my first time round was twelve days lol. Determined to smash that this time except for the diet cokes which I have to have so that do one realises.

    8lbs off when I checked on scales this morning. Well impressed. Jeans still tucked under my belly but having to tighten belt. Friends have gone away today so hoping they'll notice a difference when they return.

    Hope you're going ok. You seem really positive and motivated so well done you! Let's hope we don't both have down days together else we'll be in trouble then! I suppose being a few days apart will help in that respect.

    We can do this!! And it's Friday!!!!

    Xx

    Thanks chick,

    Stuck to diet Pepsi which was ok. Tummy noisy now though lol. Didn't push the boat out with the sparkling, considered it but went with the pop. Feeling guilty now.

    Keep it up love, we can do this!!! Getting into it must be the hardest bit surely!?! Not long and we'll be titchy.

    Have a wonderful weekend xx
