    Hello :)
    Just wanted to start a journey thread for my own peace of mind where i can come and blog whats going on whilst im on the CD.

    2 years ago i gave up smoking, *Pats self on back* and although i knew i was probably going to put on the weight, i didnt think it would be so extreme.
    Before hand (and after 3 children) i had managed to get from 15st (213ib) down to 10st 4ib(144ib).
    When i gave up smoking i was at 12st 5ib (173ib).
    4 weeks ago i was 14st 10ib, but due to gastric reflux i managed to lose a bit of weight.

    I think i have probably tried every diet and diet fad going, maybe losing 3ib here and there, but never having the will power to stick to it, i think maybe because i had been doing it on my own, with no support network and no inspiration.
    This time however i have found this great forum, with inspiration at every turn, and i also have a great CDC who i know i can ring if ever i feel i am going to slip up.

    Sooooo

    Today is day one of week 1

    I am on the SS+.

    weight =13.3

    BMI = 36.1

    waist = 43"

    Hips = 41"

    bust= 50"

    Arm = 13&half "

    Thigh = 23"

    Hello and welcome to the CD forum. The people on here are very inspirational and supportive.
    When do you start on Cambridge? Good luck with your first week. Day 1-3 are probably the hardest days, but just stick to it, keep yourself busy and you'll see the pounds fall off you.

    Look forward to following your journey.
    Take care. :)
