I began the CD in April and in 2 months lost 2 and a half stone. I had such strong will power, it was hard and even though I did cheat I found myself losing the weight.
I seemed to lose quite a bit of weight but not a lot of inches which annoyed me to the point of basically giving it in, deciding that I would carry on my own weight loss in my own time eating normal meals but staying in the routine of lots of water etc.
It has sort of worked, but I keep going off wagon.
I finished CD at 13st 10lbs and for the past 2 months of doing it myself I have only yo-yoed from 13st 7lbs to 14st.
I am not eating well though, I have a new job and work long hours come home and end up ordering in.
It saddens me a lot I have got out my routine even with the water but I can't really afford to go back on CD anymore and I found this forum really inspiring when I was on it originally so I am looking for some help, some tips, some inspirational stories and motivational stories to get back into a healthy mode.
I would be happy to be a size 14, weighing in at 12st 7lb so I need to lose just over a stone.
I need that fix of people smiling and saying 'wow, you've lost weight! You look amazing!' and to not feel like a frump like I do now.
