    As some of you may know 11 weeks ago(roughly) I began Cambridge with a view to getting down to 14 stone from the 17st 9lbs that I weighed.

    I wanted to post this here for all of you who may be struggling with your weight. Cambridge Diet works! Full stop. Stick to it and you will come out on top!

    11 weeks later, and as of today i weigh 13 Stone 8 Lbs, 4 stone 1Lbs lost! My waist size has gone from 40 down to 34. My T shirt size has gone from XXL to L. My BMI has gone from 34.3 to 26.5. My blood pressure has gone from high to normal, as has my blood cholesterol. I feel better, just better!

    To say that I am happy is a complete understatement, and I thought i would chime in here with an updated pic. I hope it helps people with their journeys..

    I have now revised my target down to 12 1/2 Stone, so I have another stone or so to lose.

    A big thatnks must go to iceMoose on this forum, though i dont know him, I would never have lost this weight had the inspiration from his amazing blog touched me. Thanks :)

    A HUGE congratulations Minty!! You look absolutely fantastic!! A completely different person :D

    I always envy the super-mega-fantastic weight loss experienced by you guys on a VLCD - most of us girlies just can't hold a candle to what you are capable of losing in such a short time. I love seeing how rapidly you boys change though ... it's nothing short of miraculous!

    Good luck with the last few pounds: you'll be there in no time at all!

    Thanks guys, the support of people here and DH is great. Mini pointed out that my 2nd image mistakenly says '07, but its definitely '06..I am wishing the years away! oops!

    Am on the 1000 plan now, but finding it much harder to stick to than SS. My counsellor is away for a couple of weeks, but may just do SS again to get the weight down to 12 1/2 st.

    {edit} have managed to change the image to reflect '06

    Minty,

    The transformation in you is incredible!!! You really do look years younger and just not the same person. Thanks for posting your pics. Just the type of inspiring thing I need to look at to get my own head into gear. WELL DONE....x
