    Red face Diary of a CWP rookie

    So I got chubby...

    Hi there! I'm Sara, I'm 26 and I am a foodaholic.
    I have just started the sole source diet and now on my eighth day. I have gone through most of the unwelcome symptoms and had an afternoon nap on one of the days to black it all out. I actually liked that I felt so bad those first three days. It told me something was happening to my body and that I was detoxing. So the worse I felt physically the better I felt mentally! Very odd.
    I have tried quite a few diets but seemed to have fallen off. I feel really positive about this one though because it cuts you off completely from food so there's no real calorie counting or working out what you can and can't have.
    I have had real ups and downs and figured if I am really going to do this- I need to join something to help me. I read a lot of posts from people and different links and everyone on here seems amazingly supportive and lovely which is what I need to get involved with.
    I am currently between a size 16 and 18 dress and would ideally like to be a 12.
    I need to lose about 4 1/2 stone.
    I feel more motivated with this diet than any I have other done and look forward to reading about other peoples experiences.
    My first proper weigh in is Wednesday Morning where I will start to set up my weekly "figures" - hah! See what I did there?
    I look forward to chatting with you guys and feel free to check my diary whenever. I am going to have another look at other peoples now!
    Sara
    PS. Who else has a mouth AS DRY AS A DESERT??

    Hi I'm only on day 2! I found yesterday my first day horrible! But I am determined to stick to plan and get skinny...
    I'm only having the shakes as wasn't to sure in the soups or porridges as they may make me want actual food!!

    Hey Char
    It's really funny that everyone has certain days that are the hardest. A lot of people say their third is the worst but mine was the 6th and 7th. I felt really miserable without food but have come out of it and still motivating myself. I think it's a case of reminding yourself why you're doing it and what life will be like in the future. I am now on day 9 and honestly didn't think I could go this long without food.
    I prefer the shakes to most things but I do have a soup once a day because it makes me feel like I am contacting a little hot food and it's quite comforting. I have just stuck to shakes and soups so far.
    Keep going with it. You might find you feel a bit ill on the first few days but that shows something is happening with your body. Keep positive! We can do this!

    Hi Sara
    Well done on getting to day 9!
    Day 3 and I woke up feeling like I couldn't face drinking another shake! But (I know I probably shouldn't) I weighed myself and I've lost 5lb already so that made me make up my breakfast shake! Which today is mango but not liking it atal so think il need to drink this one as quick as possible!!!
    I just have one problem that I have a family day out and meal tomorrow with family who have travelled a long way to visit so I'm going to speak to my CDC and ask if it will do much damage to have a small meal either veg and meat or salad and meat!

    How much have you lost so far? Do you weight yourself atal or just go by your weekly weigh ins? X

    Hey Char,
    After day 3 and 5lbs loss is really good! Keep going. Stop having the mango if you don't like it. I didn't know there was one! I have just discovered the chocolate and it taste like coco pops milk so I really like that and the vanilla is nice. Everyones tastes are different though! I don't eat the porridge as I am not keen on porridge. Rememebr you can do different things with the shakes and look up recipes if you are struggling with just shakes.
    See what your CDC says about the meal - I am sure a high protein meal will be okay! I don't know if that'll make it harder - I have found completely cutting off has helped me more.
    My first weigh in was a loss of 7.5lbs

    Hi Sara.
    Just saw your first week's loss. Huge well done. I bet you are delighted! It just goes to show that if you stick to it, it WILL work!

    I have only found a couple of products that I don't like but the worst of all has to be the tomato soup. BLEH! It's a bit of an insult calling it tomato soup if you ask me!

    Anyway,I just dropped by to say well done and keep going!

    Hi Poko!

    Thanks! I haven't tried the tomato soup yet as I bought one and made it wrong! So I am going to try it again. I have heard it's not very nice. I am loving the chocolate milkshakes though. They have really kept me going!!

    Hi Sara. Well done on your first weigh in that is great. My first weigh in was a loss of 6lb. I am the same size as you and have the same goal of size 12. Am starting day 11 today - feeling positive and happy to have found someone else suffering with desert mouth!! Isn't it amazing, never had such a dry mouth and yet am downing over 3 litres if water a day (somedays I feel like I am drowning myself lol).

    Ha! Clairey you are right. I feel like a hot water bottle when I have drunk all that water!! I have really struggled today because I have twice been in a situation where people are eating amazing food which smells great. I am hoping I will get over that eventually!

    Missfortune, I found this was a really good way of getting into it. Especially if you are having a wobbly day! It's good because we are all in the same boat and having similar problems!
