    Hi all,

    Im really making this post as a reflection to look back upon, to keep me sane and as motivation. I am a second timer on the Cambridge diet, the first time I was really not ready to commit but did lose approx. 10 pounds which I have put back on JOY! Why is it so easy to put weight on but so hard to lose? So I have approx. 3 stone (42lbs) to lose. Im fairly lucky that I am pretty tall at 5ft 9 so I seem to carry off a little extra weight but of recent all my clothes have got tight (im sure they shrunk in the wash ;)), im starting to get a rather chubby face, and possibly more roles that a bakery!

    As a teen I was always a lovely size ten but after having my little girl four years ago I don't think iv ever got back to pre-pregnancy size and the excuse of "iv had a baby" has been exhausted. This time I NEED to succeed and stop using food as a fix to cure boredom or emotions. I WILL DO THIS, I CAN DO THIS! I just wish dominos would stop txting me buy one get one free deals or the adverts on the telly would stop making my mouth water.

    I plan to follow ss just for two week whilst I get into the swing of things then I will add in a small healthy meal after that. Im finding Cambridge very very expensive so if anyone is aware of alternatives id be really interested to know. I think I just wanted to write this to speak to others on the journey of "getting slim", what keeps you all motivated? Any tips? Im a night owl so tend to drink my shakes during the evening im not sure if this a bad idea but I work in the NHS so sometimes breaks are not an option.

    Anyways look forward to getting to know you all :) Happy Slimming :)

    Good luck hun. I had 3 stone 5 lb to lose at the start. 11 weeks done and I'm 9lb away from goal. If I can do it you can too.
    I actually think this diet is cheaper than all the food and drink I use to eat. Wine and takeaways alone I was doing £25 a week, add on the lunches at work and dinners at home and reckon I'm actually saving money. Feel free to ask me any questions x

    Hi Bubbles. We have a lot in common. Similar weight, NHS employees and hence why we are both finding it expensive! I'm also hoping to do Sole Source for two weeks to hopefully drop the majority of the extra weight then I can stop buying 21 products a week.

    I'm try to justify it by saying it's NOT £2.40 for a cereal bar it's a WHOLE meal. Then that's quite cheap. I would probably spend around the same on a weekly short full of biscuits and food I don't need or won't eat so it's saving and spending for me at the same time!

    You can do it!
