2nd Week Cambridge Diet

Hi Fellow dieters,
This is my first time on time on this site so apologies for going on too much!

I started the CB diet on SS last week it has been really hard, however i'm still on it and have a long way to go. i am 18 stones and 5'6inches. i need to go down to 11 stones for my height. i was woundering if anyone else as a similar target as myself, also i have checked today if i am in ketostis and i am. Does any body know what ketotis really is? But i dont feel my belly or my tighhs are going down. i still feel like a big girl. when do we see results not on the scales but on our actually bodies? if anyone has lost alot of weight on CB pleaee could you tell me how long it took you to loose your weight. i have booked a holiday to NYC in may and i really want to be able to buy nice clothes, i am using this as a motivational tool. how are everyone else doing?

Hi Satty Dieter

I've been on CD for 2 weeks too and so far its going well. I don't have the ketostix but can only assume I'm in ketosis as I no longer feel hungry and am losing weight. I have a bit more than you to lose but am so determined to lose it. I have read that you can expect to lose about a stone a month so by the time you go to NYC in May you should be well on your way...... at least in the 14's if not 13's!!!! How great would that be eh??

As far as I am aware.... and I may be wrong....ketosis is where your body turns from a machine running on carbs to one that runs on fat. Thats how I think of it anyway.

Good luck navigating your way around here..... it's taken me a while to figure it out but I'm getting there!!

i have been on ss for 10 weeks now with a few days off at xmas and new year. it is so fast to see the results i was in a 24/26 now in a 18/20 and everyone says you can tell really well. ketosis is when your body uses stored fat but just be carefull the smallest thing will take you out of it.
good luck with your weight loss

I'm on week 2 now and have a similar amount to you to lose. I'm a little shorter that you so I guess I should lose a bit more!

Are you weighing in with your CDC weekly? I had my first weigh in yesterday and lost 8lb. My CDC also measures me and in the first week I lost 2" from my bust, 2" waist, 2" hips, 1" chest, 1" thighs and 0.5" arms. Was a real boost to see those inches, I recommend everyone does their measurements.

Good luck x

Hi there, welcome to CD and Minimins :)

It's a brilliant diet, I am on my 8th week, well actually I consider it my 7th week really as I had 3 days off over xmas where I ate everything I wanted to and drank quite a few bottles of wine :cool: and I have lost 40lbs in total :D I started at 17st 10 and now I am 14st 12 :D

I am off to New York in August, I can't wait and I am hoping to have reached my goal by then so I can do loads of shopping!!!
Hi All

Thanks for replying back to me, this site is soo good i really find it refreshing to find that i am not the only one in the boat. Thank you for the repiles i feel alot better. my CB counseller measured me the 1st week however not the 2nd week. when i see her on monday i will ask her to measure me again . I feel so inpatient i want fast results. i feel this diet is good and i have lots more energy than before.

How is everyone else doing?
