    Brand new to Cambridge Diet Sole Source

    Hey all so i am new here and to the diet, Im currently on day two of my diet and going ok. I had been keeping updates on Tumblr but felt like i wanted to join an active forum so i can get support if needed and give it too.
    Ive just copied and pasted this from my tumblr account so I'm caught up

    Over the last few months i have gotten very sick and tired of comments from people at work saying how i have put weight on and even asking if Iím pregnant?!?!?! (yes that did happen) S
    o i met and talked with my diet rep last night (she actually my uni friend) and Iím starting on Sole Source. I have 2 weeks work of shakes and soups and porridges etc. I donít think i would need longer than 2-3 weeks on sole source before stepping up and intaking more calories. Like Iíve said previously i have reached my breaking point and need something like this to seriously kick my ass into gear. Crazy to do it near xmas i know however Iím aware of what i am getting myself into.

    Official weigh in

    11st 2lbs
    BMI of 27.6
    Waist 34Ē Chest 38Ē Hips 44Ē
    Goal weight 9st Goal BMI 22.5
    I got my friend to take a pic of before for comparison in a few weeks. She will show me the difference if there is anything significant.

    Day 1
    Oh my god. This first day of the Cambridge diet has found me thinking about food constantly. The shakes and porridges are nice and tasty but Iím sat here currently just thinking about food non-stop. Hopefully this will change in the next few days but if I feel like this on day one then God knows what Iíll be like going into ketosis!!!
    Day 2
    Ok so i am now on day two and had my shake for breakfast and lunch. Been to bikram yoga today and thought that it would be hard with my lack of calories but actually found it easier then the first day. Im going to go to bikram again on tuesday for the 60 min class as i have the day off. Drinking water easier today and looking forward to my rice pudding this evening. i need to stop jumping on the scales though as Iím not seeing any difference obviously and i need to keep my motivation up not down. No ill feeling so far but sods law says that happens on monday when i go to work on day 4!

    Hi. Good luck with sole source, I started on Thursday, so now on day 3. All I done yesterday was think of food and cooking my kids dinner was hard.Today has been so much easier, don't know why. Can't wait for my first weigh in, it's on Wednesday. How r the porridge? Do u have soups to, what do u think. I'm just having shakes at the min.

    Well done on your first couple of days. I would definitely advise staying away from the scales. Cd works...as long as you focus on your habits and stick to it. You can't control how fast the weight comes off but you can control what you are doing. xx

    Thanks for the comments. Ive been 100% for the last two days now. Today is my 3rd day and i slept a lot last night, i don't feel hungry at all yet this morning but feel slightly wooly in my head. I have a feeling transition into ketosis is happening now. I work in a hospital so will do a dip stick at work tomorrow and see.

    Today is day 4 for me. I did a dip stick at work and am definitely in Ketosis. I had an attack of the bad breath today as well. I didn't sleep much last night as it was Once Upon a Time night in usa and well I've gotten into a nasty habit of staying awake to watch it live at 1am! Even when i want to go to sleep early on a sunday i never manage it! However i woke up this morning and i did not feel as shattered as i normally do! So at least thats a plus.

    It was really trying my will power though as i had to make toast a couple of times for my patients and it smelt bliss.
    Decided
    I'm not a big fan of the vegetable soup

    Well done you! Toast does it for me every time, but well done for resisting. I had a veg soup tonight and really had to force it down...I share the dislike...although I used to love it. x

    Im looking forward to being able to buy the bars and feel like I'm eating. But yeah toast is my downfall, I'm looking forward to xmas and eating again albeit as healthy as poss

    Day 5 has started and i woke up feeling groggy, thankfully i have the day off today. Starting out with a porridge, i really love these. Hoping to go to bikram yoga today so need to get a bit more motivated. Does anyone else have crazy vivid dreams whilst on this diet??? So far i had a dream about my leg getting amputated but i was ok with it and about learning to walk on a prosthetic????

    Last night i had vivid dreams about a friend of mine and another friend whom both do not get on with, living in london and actually living together due to reasons! Weird. Looking forward to weigh in on friday. And at work people have mentioned that i look slimmer in my face. I count that as a win!!

    Today is day 6 for me and i have been doing ok until now. Im sat at home in a funk, my house mate just made a pizza and food seems to be everywhere. I want to eat not cause I'm hungry but just cause its food and smells nice. I want to go to the shops to go and get beanies flavoured coffee just to help myself and make coffee a bit more flavourful but that means going out in the car to sainsburys as thats the only place that sells it. I may end up going anyway just to do something. Good news according to the scales at work I've lost 7lbs since starting. Looking forward to friday i just need to make it to then. My friend/consultant will keep me straight i know and she will be able to see it on me if i have lost weight visibly

    Yes I've had them also the Carmel is nice. To be fair they are all delicious in taste, I'm going to order the Christmas pudding next month. I will never go back to normal coffee that's for sure. Look on their website for offers. X

    I ended up driving out to sainsburys and got irish cream and amareto. They are only £2 at the moment but will look online for next month for sure. I took a pic last night of my hair as i had braids in and when taken out i had lovely waves. Anyway the point is i noticed my back fat was reduced!!!!! I guess i am just loosing weight in all the weird places first (face, back, whats next???) i just want my belly to go. I can feel my hip bones at last on my front however there is what looks like a bloated belly in the middle of them i want gone. I jumped on the scales again as i woke up and it looks like i am an even 10 1/2 st but of course that is likely to change as the day goes on. need to stop jumping on the scales but if its all starting to be noticeable it might not be that bad. How are you getting on?

    Weigh in today. Felt rubbish yesterday and felt my resolve wavering but i didn't fall off the wagon. It can feel very lonely on this diet I'm finding. We shall see how this evening goes
    I may have to go up to step two next week as i just don't think ill make 3 weeks on sole source
