    Right, some questions:

    1) Did you cheat?
    2) What was your average weight loss per week
    3) What was your average water intake per day
    4) If you could start again, what would you have done differently!

    Any other info you care to add would be much appreciated as usual guys!
    You rock my socks off!

    Love Leah xxx

    1) Did you cheat?
    Yes I am embarrassed to say I am a regular cheater (at weekends) longest Ive gone without cheating is 2 weeks, I've been lucky that it hasnt overly damaged my losses ... yet, but its a killer getting back into ketosis!

    2) What was your average weight loss per week?
    Between 3-4lbs

    3) What was your average water intake per day?
    Between 2-3 litres

    4) If you could start again, what would you have done differently?
    Not cheat!

    1) Did you cheat?
    I did LL in 2006 - never cheated once. Got to goal and moved house so didn't do maintenance. Put weight back on and have been a serial cheater on CD.

    2) What was your average weight loss per week
    4lbs

    3) What was your average water intake per day
    5-6 litres

    4) If you could start again, what would you have done differently!
    Followed the maintenance plan! I can't say not cheat, because on LL I was very good but it didn't teach me to live in the real world. I combine CD with living now (occasional diet coke or protein meal and an alcoholic drink). Over the last year I wish I'd got back on the wagon sooner everytime I had a break.

    Right, some questions:

    No, Until I went to Tunisia 4 and a half months after starting, I fell off the wagon in to a bottle of Vodka, I low carbed for 4 days whilst there, and went straight back to SS after.
    5 stone in four months, so about 3/5lbs per week

    Never went below 4 ltrs

    Work through the stages better, I got to 1000 and it went to pot :D

    Icemoose would say, head down, eyes on the prize x

    Cambridge Weight Plan - Step 1
    1) Did you cheat?
    When I did CD in 2006 I didn't cheat once - I didn't even do AAM for six months! Didn't reach goal though - got complacent and have since been off and on the diet more times than a flea on a sheepdog!
    2) What was your average weight loss per week
    Last year it was the average 'stone a month' so some weeks 2lb, other weeks 5lb etc. I've lost 16lb in the 4 weeks since my restart so it looks like I'm going to be 'Ms Average' again.

    3) What was your average water intake per day
    2 - 3 litres ... I can't really stomach more than that.

    4) If you could start again, what would you have done differently!
    I would have put blinkers on and not stopped til I reached goal. Your first time is truly your 'Golden Time'!

    Hee hee, I love the way you just chuck a few welsh words in here and there!

    Do you speak welsh fluently? I haven't done it since school and would love to learn again now I've moved back to the homeland! I suppose it's like me having lived in Scotland and saying nae problem all the time!!

    I do indeed! First language, welsh school, even did my GCSE's and A levels in welsh - which retrospect tells me wasnt such a great idea :D:D

    Bit hard on my non-welsh speaking father, but then he used to teach me to swear in arabic! Weird family.
    I'm making my deaserst english OH learn welsh now as i'm set on sending my babies to a welsh school, he's doing well!
