I'm new to Cambridge & on day 10, and have lost 11lb which is great... but it's soooo hard! My counsellor is new herself and there is no group in my area, so I'm really struggling for support, though my family are being great. I haven't told my friends as a bit of me feels really weird about admitting to it, does that sound crazy? Have just said I am on strict diet. How have other people coped with this? One friend told me I was crazy to start a diet before Xmas, and sometimes I think she has a point!!!
I feel well and more alert than before, but quite hungry every day... I'm 5'8" and only taking 3 sachets, not sure if that is a factor. I guess I'm just looking for a bit of moral support... I'm determined and motivated, but feeling pretty isolated. Hoping this forum could make a difference to that!

Your doing really well, it'll be worth it in the end. Wow Trace, well done 9 stone is an amazing loss. It just goes to show it can be done.
Good luck

hi Katy
welcome to the site and great work on your 11lbs so far that's fab!! well done you!
Tracey is right tho' the book says anyone 5ft 8 and over shoeuld be having 4 packs a day, perhaps as you cdc is new she didn't realise this. have you got the booklet?

If you are happy to do CD now then do it and don't pay attention to what anyone else says by Christmas you caould have lost another stone!

Good luck for your weight loss journey! and keep coming on heree there's loads of support and advice etc
