    Yup, 4 months ago, i was 17 hand a half stone....! I shudder at the thought of what i let myself become, but i took that first major step and embarked on a journey that would change my life, that, my friends, was the Cambridge Diet!

    I remember those first shakes, the uncertainties, the starvation, the mental torture....and while i sit here in my size 10/12 outfit, it was SOOOO totally worth it! :D

    In 4 months, 0.01% of my life so far, i have achieved the following:

    I have lost 78lbs (5 stone 8lbs) :D
    I have gone from a size 18 to a 10/12 :D
    I have gone from having a BMI of 40, to a BMI of 27:D
    I now exercise more than i have ever done and enjoy it! :D
    I have control over food, and not the other way round :D:D

    You ladies (and gents) have helped me so much to get where i am now, and never in a million years did i think i would be where i am now so i have to thank you all so much!

    For anyone that is starting up and finding the first couple of days difficult, please, stick with it....its about to get SOOO good!

    Cambridge diet has changed the way i view food, and i love that! No other diet has actually helped me address my issues with food and with WW/SW, there was always a way to cheat!
    I have never cheated on this diet, i have given it my all and it has done me proud!

    I know this is an "all about me" post, but i just want to be able to shout it from the roof tops that i'm doing it, i'm doing Cambridge Diet and IT ROCKS!!!

    Hope everyone has a super 100% day whatever plan your doing! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    You deserve to really enjoy the benefits of losing an amazing 78lbs hun and i bet those size 10/12 clothes feel amazing. Someone like me would walk around with the size label hanging out just so people could see the size !! lol

    Well what can I say Lizz? You have done fab and so you should be proud of yourself, I also love the way that Cambridge makes you think about food and not just losing weight, it is just the most AMAZING diet ever and I wish I had heard of it sooner, why oh why is it not advertised more?

    I agree, CD ROCKS!!!
