    This is a choice.... A choice to change my life

    Hello everyone!

    Since starting Cambridge a week ago I have been reading diaries on here and thought it would be great to start my own to keep me focused and hear from people going through the same experience.

    Well first week done and I am feeling fab! Don't get me wrong days 2/3 were dark days where I thought is it all worth it, but with the support of my husband I got through them and so glad I did as 12lb down this week!! So exciting and the motivation I need to continue.

    I have a way to go but can see results already.

    there are so many reasons I need to lose weight and I have lots of goals in mind, but one that excites me the most is the thought of being a size 12 for my brothers wedding in May (currently a 22)! To stand there with the other bridesmaids (sizes ranging from 6-12) and not feel like the fat relation!!!

    So the journey begins..... Please join me and keep me motivated with your amazing journeys too!

    Good luck everyone! X

    Hi Susan, today has been really good. I'm doing SS+ so had four today and liked them all! Porridge for breakfast, shake for lunch, soup for tea and now having a hot mint chocolate, lovely! Got my water in too!

    hows it been for you? I see from your stats you are doing really well Are you doing SS?

    Sounds like a nice menu :-)

    I didn't like the porridge and now mostly live on choc mint shakes and a couple of soups a week!

    I've justed finished week 9... Mostly it's been great, sometimes days are harder than others and early nights can be a god send, along with this forum, but it's so worth it! It feels slow at times, but the weight is going!

    I'm on phone do can't see your stats, how much do you have to lose?.I take it your tall as you've had 4 products today?

    Well done on completing week 9! That seems so far off for me at the mo.... I found my first weekend hard, but tried to keep busy. I've found I have liked most of the products I've tried which is great and using a hand blender seems to make them taste so much better than using a shaker!

    I was on the threshold for 4 meals at nearly 5ft8 and I have 7 stone to lose, well 6 now! Lol!

    Hiya, I know it's hard, and done days you feel your counting the minutes, but you'll soon look back and be amazed at how quick the times gone, it's also great when you find the old clothes in the wardrobe that you couldn't squish into suddenly fit, or even better, are loose!

    Anyway, how's it going today?

    Today has been another good day Day 9 and still positive and not really struggling at all, which has really surprised me.

    Susan I am definitely looking forward to getting into clothes that I haven't for a while and then buying some new ones!! Got a big get together meal with friends at NY and that's my first goal, want to be a size 16.... Never thought it possible but my CDC thinks it is and I am now starting to believe it!

    my only slight downfall is I keep getting on the scales and can't let that demotivated me when I don't see a loss every time! Lol!

    how is everyone getting on? Keep up the good work! Xxx

    Sounds like your doing fab and this us suiting you! I love fitting into old clothes, I had some a few weeks back I couldn't get into and now there loose, it's fab but you need to keep an eye on the wardrobe or you'll find you missed your chance to wear stuff! Lol!

    I know staying of the scales can be so hard, it's best if you can, maybe get someone else to hide them from you?! Is fine if it doesn't bother you, but if it can stop you continuing you want to be rid of them, for now at least.... Just remember though, weight fluctuates, all the time, sadly it's not an exact science!

    Think I will sort through wardrobe this weekend and put things in order of size so I don't miss anything!

    Might need to get hubby to hide the scales although I am realistic and know that weight can change daily even hourly and I know it'll be ok at weekly weigh in as I am sticking to plan 100% so how can it not be!

    hope everyone is doing well, how are you getting on Susan?

    Hi RWroe! Came to catch up on your diary as promised!

    I think the motivation you have is going to help a lot with this plan; I have been doing so well because I had motivation for an event and generally, people planning for an occasion seem to be more focused. Thats not to say that the people (I keep typing 'women' and then remembering that there are men on this board!) who are doing it to lose weight and be more healthy in general aren't inspirational and successful, because they are. I just find that 'generally' they are able to take it a bit slower and therefore perhaps allow themselves a few more treats.

    When I posted about my size 16 trousers being too big, Tizzy told me to not wait too long to sort out my clothes as I would be rapidly going through them and she was right! I wore my size 14 Gap jeans a few times, but the other pair I only managed to wear TWICE before they went in the charity bag!

    I loved sorting through my clothes-real motivation! When I was a comfortable size 14 I started hanging my size 12 clothes up in my wardrobe and now I am wearing them! Soon be time for me to get the suitcase back out and start going through the size 10s as my next motivation!

    You are doing fab and I can't wait to follow your journey!

    Wow Nikie you are doing so well! Other diets I have followed things happen so slow and I give up and rarely get into any smaller sizes but I just know this diet is going to be different! I just can't wait to get into smaller sizes or even wear the ones I wear now without feeling like I am squeezed into them!

    I have a lot of motivation, not only my brothers wedding, but also a family/ friends Xmas and NY and also my OH and I really want to have children and after two and a half years, nothing has happened. We are going through the process of having tests to see if there is a problem and obviously my weight was also mentioned. They said they are not saying its the reason nothing has happened as there are plenty of people that are overweight and conceive, but I need to be in the best possible health and since starting CD I want to get to goal and then continue trying so I am in the best possible condition!

    losing this weight will change my life
