Amelia's Weight Loss Journey


Trying to lose weight
Hi all,

Well I have decided to start this to try and keep track of what I'm doing and where I go wrong (if I do).

I started the Cambridge Diet on Monday 6th September 2010. My starting weight was 86kg (189.2lbs).

I weighed in with my CDC yesterday, Monday 13th September 2010 and have lost 3kgs (6lbs), so my weight now is 83kgs (182.6lbs). I feel great in myself even though my CDC felt that I should have lost more. But to be honest I have my TOTM so will be carrying more water retention again at the moment. Hopefully next week it will show more but I'm actually happy with what I have lost.

Well today so far I have had my strawberry shake which was nice.

I can't believe that I actually dont feel hungry, it's really strange how this diet takes away the hunger stage.

I still can't seem to manage to take all my daily intake of water though, I don't know why. I've tried so hard to get it all down me but I just can't (it's frustrating). I've taken more water in my shakes and also 1 or 2 cups of coffee with only sweetner to try and make up my water and I don't think that even helps. Hopefully as time goes on I will manage it better. :)
Hi Amelia, welcome to the boards and Cambridge and congrats on your amazing weightloss for week one. In regards to you struggling with water - have you thought about drinking herbal teas such as Peppermint or Redbush tea? They also count towards your water intake. I also find that when I add the Cambridge water flavourings (especially the summer berry) that I find it so much easier to drink water. If you add the water flavouring to fizzy water, it tastes like soda. Although one tip if you do this - drink some of the water first or you'll have it fizzing up everywhere! LOL.
Good luck with your second week. :)
hello- i just wanted to pop on and say hi and well done for losing those 6lbs you should be proud of yourself!

Last night I gave into temptation and had some chips, don't think it has kicked me out of ketosis though as I still feel fine and don't feel hungry at all. I felt really guilty after having them as I didn't actually feel hungry, I just wanted them.

Today I am going to try and have half my vanilla shake this morning (which I am having just now) and have the other half for lunch. Then tonight I will have a full one of something (not sure what to have yet).

Do you think this is what I should do or should I still have the three as normal? Let me know? x
Hello i think you should have your 3 shakes as usual and maybe try to drink some extra water if you can, keep at it hun im sure the results will be worth it!!

Well, I lost total track and went off of the Cambridge Diet.

I restarted on Tuesday 2nd November. Had a great week with it apart from on the Sunday I had a wee treat. But it didn't do me any harm. I am still feeling well and drinking plenty of water.

My first weigh in was Monday 8th November and I had lost 5 1/2 pounds which was great.

Here goes to another week of it and hopefully no blips this week. x
