    Mini Meems

    Hi,

    I started on the CWP 8 days ago after doing huge amounts of research and serial lurking on minimins. The diaries on here are really inspiring. You all made it seem like it was something that I could do.

    Week one was a breeze, I hit ketosis on day 2 and lost 11lbs. Even work, which was my main worry starting this was fine. Today started with an unexpected TOTM visit and masses of temptation. A friend who works in a bakers brought over donuts and bread, my mum gave me a block of cheese and it rained all day.... Even the cat food smelled appealing!!

    I decided to to reread some of your dairies and distract myself from the carb filled nightmares now safely stored in the bin. And then I remembered it's rude to eavesdrop so I thought I'd introduce myself

    I've got about 10 stone to lose and can't believe I let myself get to this size. I'm a nurse and really, I should know better.
    I've half heartedly done several diets before but never felt as sure of myself as now. It' snot just the looking better aspect (although that won't hurt...!), it's more he health side of it now. I will not be one of the fat old ladies who we have to hire special equipment for. Not gonna happen.

    On that positive note!

    good luck,
    Meems xx

    Thanks guys!

    Had a much better day today. Managed to avoid the cat food temptation totally!
    Each day I do this surprises me with just how much willpower I have. It has been really interesting to start seeing how much of what I eat is through boredom and laziness, which is not totally surprising considering how shift work has impacted my life.
    I think I need a hobby!

    Hope that everyone is doing well,

    Meems xx

    Hey Meems,

    Well done on loser of the week - definitely a positive!

    I love how this diet gets you thinking and realizing so much more about yourself and food habits - I have learned so much in my journey so far which I am hoping stands me in good stead moving forward.

    Keep posting!

    Flic, I think that's possibly one of the best things about this diet.
    I'm not really a 'group' person, I tend to sit at the back and listen rather than talk. And WW/SW never really worked for me. Cambridge and the 1:1 aspect have really started to focus me on just how badly I managed food.

    Today I had my first negative response from one of my (many!) sisters. She was justifiably concerned that it was a faddy diet and I'd gain the weight back. I've never really done anything like this before and always been the biggest sister, I think once it becomes noticeable I may find this happening more often, particularly from my work colleagues.
    I have a sister who has had issues with food in the past and I can understand the concerns but as I tried to explain to my sister, the reason I know that I'll be successful is that I want/have to do this. My mindset now is totally different.
    i'm ready to stop wasting my life.

    How has everyone else dealt with challenges to your choice of diet?

    Almost forgot to say... Met the 1st meal out challenge!

    I've been doing a mix of mainly SS with 1-2 days of SS+ thrown in, usually after an early (5am start). So I had a chicken skewer with green peppers and a green salad. Oddly enough cooked exactly the same for myself last week for half the price and double the taste!
    I love to get to the point where I can just SS but find that the option to have that small meal means I want it less. Usually because I'm too lazy to go cook it! My consultant says that the difference between losses is minimal so I'm hoping that it won't slow me down too much.

    Next time though, I'm going to take a tetra pack with me and sod the stares. But it was reassuring to know that I could and did choose the healthy, cambridge friendly option and still eat out.

    Well done on your eating out thing! I too have a mixture of SS/SS+ meals - usually I SS+ at the weekends. I've quite happily sat in pubs and restaurants with friends and family with a sparkling water and no food and felt great - I think when you resist, it gives you that extra boost to resist other things!

    Family can be weird. And jealous. And really negative. My younger brother told me I looked ill because I didn't want to eat at pizza hut, my Dad told me I needed to start eating, and my auntie told me it wouldn't work and once I started eating again i'd put it all back on. Instead of letting this get me down, I'm using all of this negativity to drive me forward to do better, to succeed, to maintain. You're probably going to get more as time goes on, but i've sort of let it wash over me really - it's my body and I choose what to do with it!

    Anyway, have a fab weekend, you'll be into the swing of things before you know it!

    Had a pj day today and spent the day curled up on the sofa watching DVD's. Normally I'd have had several cups of tea and raided the cupboards on multiple occasions. Today I didn't even think to do anything other than have my shake and soup.
    I did however miss out on several crucial moments in the films as I wasn't allowed to pause for my mammoth pee breaks!

    A good old day and I'm hoping to have managed the 3lb to take me to my 1st stone on Mondays weigh in.

    I lost 9lbs! Very pleased with that
    i know that it's going to go slower now but I'm incredibly happy with a 1 1/2 stone start.

    Hi Meems!
    Wow congratulations on your losses so far! You're doing really well!
    I didn't really tell anyone I was doing this diet as I didn't want to feel like I had to justify it to anyone. I have told a few people now, basically those I was going out with or was going for dinner at their houses and they have been understanding but I can see they don't think I'm doing the right thing.
    Since I've had my second diet I just couldn't seem to lose any weight and I was getting really fed up so I thought I'd do this - yes it's drastic but it works and that's what I personally need right now. I'll cross the maintenance bridge when I come to it!
    Good luck,
    Clare xx
