    Kate's Daily Diary

    Soo...hello to anyone who reads this! I started my Cambridge journey on Wednesday 8th May 2012. It's the first (and hopefully only!) time i've done it and i did no prep really (unless you count stuffing my face over the bank holiday weekend!!) Been reading these forums a bit for inspiration but not previously been brave enough to post. However, have stuck religiously to SS and drunk only plain or sparkling water, peppermint and green tea the past week and did not step on the scales all week (which for me is a major achievement as when I've done SW before I weighed myself daily...sometimes more!) But for me this is about breaking unhealthy habits and focussing on routine etc. Sooo...with some trepidation I went to my weigh in today and I am 15.4... Which is an 11lb loss in 6 days!! I'm astounded and so, so happy. Best bit is how relieved I feel not to worry about food. Cravings only ever fleeting and easily controlled with a glass of water and beginning to get my energy back. Long may this continue! I am determined not to cheat, but so far haven't wanted to. I think for me, rather than doing something I feel I 'have to' and sticking to 'the rules' of the diet, I almost feel like I'm doing something naughty by doing CD in the first place, as received wisdom is just to eat healthily, exercise, etc. but that hasn't worked for me in the past, so now am determined to do it by CD just to prove it can be done! That attitude is working for me at the minute. Just worked out my target weight and I could be there by my birthday. Bring.It.On!!!
    Restart 6th Nov 2014 as put all my weight loss back So now...90lbs to go...SS 100%

    (Slight pause as I got pregnant and had our beautiful baby William in May 2014...!)

    May 2013: 12 weeks on SS then 2 weeks step 2 (with a few intentional hiccups!!), three days SS and then Step 2...63lbs lost in total

    Just been for my week one weigh in and cannot contain my disappointment at only having a 5lb loss. I could cry seeing people on here losing 8+lbs is so disheartening. But well done on your loss, its stories like your that has given me motivation to continue when i felt like giving up.

    Don't worry Hun, not everyone is the same, the best thing about cwp is that as long as you stick to it results are guaranteed ;-)

    Hi Amie - I also lost 5lb the first week (although it wasn't quite a full week), but 25 days in, I am now 22lbs off - over a stone and a half in less than a month - stick with it and from reading all the stories on here, you can be sure you won't be disappointed x

    Thanks, its this forum that keeping me going

    I left my consultant on a major downer and i have to admit, when i got home i stole one of my little boys yummy pork and apple sausages
    This morning i woke up and decided to get my mind set back on my goal and continue with my plan. At least im heading in the right direction!

    Had my maple and pecan porridge this morning which i really enjoyed, i guess its good i enjoy the foods seen as though this my new way of life!

    Any tips on anything that is going to help me along would be fabulous!

    Get yourself a serious addition to this forum, it has helped me no end. and get the app if you don't already have it! Write a diary - it not only gives you support, but people to account to when things aren't going so well or a kick up the backside when you need it. Spend time on clothes websites looking at all the things you will buy when you're slim - add them to a wishlist or save for later (most sites have this) and also read lots of others diaries, check out the inspiration section on here. write a list of reasons why you are going to do this. also take photos of yourself all the time, and browse back through them. :-)

    A loss is a loss, though Amie...it's habits that are important tho, not just what the scales say. Well done on your attitude to keep going too. I'm not ever expecting big losses week by week...all i care is that i stick to the plan...makes it easier that way. I'm not disciplined enough to have a little bit of anything and stop! x

    Loving these ideas... I've done the photos and have a collage app to see them side by side...in six months time will be like a time lapse of me shrinking! x

    Thanks! Fab ideas, my consultant took my 'before' pictures on our first meeting so i think i'll be hanging them around the house just to keep giving myself that kick up the backside. Still getting to grips with the 'blogging' side of things. I'm looking forward to this little adventure and i'm always up for a challenge

    Well done you! I really really struggle with cooking not eating...in fact making sandwiches is the worst thing! But I haven't cheated.
