    Thinking back to my start or Cambridge diet (October 2012) I could have done with someone giving me a bit of encouragement... Everyone seemed so negative always saying "you will put it all back on after the wedding" "it won't stay off" and "Shake diets are a temporary thing"

    Well fellow CDers... I lost 6.5 stone in preparation for my wedding in August.

    October 2012 - I weighed 16.8
    August 2013 - On my wedding day I weighed 10.8
    Today. January 2014 - I weigh 10.1 and have gone through all the stages of the diet and have been living my normal life since August!!

    I hope my encouragement may help you tackle those first/middle/final steps in achieving your goals :)

    Please feel free to message for encouragement... Just think... This time next year :)

    Well done!

    Wow wow!
    Youre the same height as me too.
    Thank you for the motivation as I was thinking about crisps instead of my shake!
    You look stunning and well done for maintaining all this time too.

    Wow!!! You look fantastic :)

    So glad to see you've maintained - the few people I've told about the diet have been negative too, once you start eating properly it'll all go back on...... Just don't need to hear things like that when you're trying to hard to diet.

    Once again you look totally amazing and your wedding dress was beautiful - something to look back at and be super proud for an awesome achievement :)

    Wow. You look really beautiful Sarah. And, it's so inspiring to hear about your maintenance. Do you still use any cambridge products as part of your maintenance? I heard you can do this.

    Very inspirational! I have my first Cambridge consultation on Wednesday- hoping to lose somewhere between 4 & 5 stone! You've really inspired me- so great that you've kept it all off

    Thank you to everyone for your kind comments - I truly believe that anyone can do it!! Before I was the "I'll start Monday" and never started, "just one kebab" and it turned to 20, "I'm not even that fat" but I was a 22 and had a very high BMI... Kind of girl... And it just took me to lose the weight to realize it... I believe if I can do it, anyone can!!

    I was the girl obsessed with forums asking all the questions possible and wanting to compare myself to everyone else and their weight loss... So please if you have any questions I will do my best to support and answer :)..

    Regarding CD products... I have heard you can use them as part of maintenance. If I'm honest no I don't, I have some bars in the fridge that I occasionally pinch if I haven't had breakfast as I feel they are a great nutritional start if I am in a rush - plus they are yummy (lemon yoghurt mmmm :)!!) but I don't use them on a regular basis. I do however see my CD consultant once a month, even though I don't buy from her. She is great and it's more of a supportive meeting to check that I am keeping it off... Once I returned from my holiday, I went and saw her about "getting rid of the 2lb" - despite everyone saying its nothing, to me it was...!!

    Keep going everyone :).... Remember - if it becomes an obsession it's good ... Obsessed is what lazy people use to describe he dedicated :) xxxx

    Sarah, I was just wondering about your exercise routine? On your wedding day you look GORGEOUS!!! You look so toned and tanned and all round beautiful and classy :). I was just wondering what exercise you did during/after to get your body toned? Was it more cardio or crunches etc? One of the most inspiring stories on here, I want to lose 5 stone and hope to maintain that forever! Would be great to hear what kind of workouts you did to get that beautiful bridal body.
