Good luck to everyone starting or re-starting CD after the Xmas/New Year break.
This time last year I had never even heard of CD (or any VLCD come to that!) although I must have tried every other diet around in the last 20 years or so - and probably made up a few of my own too along the way.
I started my CD journey on 24th February last year with over 8 stone to lose (I was almost 19 stone at my heaviest). Although I was desperate to lose weight, deep down I don't think I really expected CD to be anymore successful than any other diet I'd ever done - but I was so thrilled to lose 11 lbs in my first week that I just kept going .. until I reached my target weight of 10 st 7 lbs about a month ago.
I can't say it was plain sailing all the way, and there were many times when I wasn't sure I could stick it out - but I did, and all I can say now is that if one of the world's worst-ever dieters (me!) can do it, I truly believe anyone can!
