hi,
I am in my third week of sole source, and am finding this diet really effective. I have lost 20 lbs so far, and want to lose another 80 by end of September. I have ordered a pedometer and fully intend 10000 steps a day to help me on my mission! I am looking for a few gals to team up with who have similar amounts to lose and a similar timeframe to do it in. There is nothing like the idea of a group effort to keep ya from cheating!
This website has been so flipping useful and helpful to me since I started. Thanks guys:)

Thanks! Please be in my gang lol! I weigh in every Sat with my CDC. What about you? I am really going for it at the moment, I am desperate to get into shape as I am starting a new job in September. In the past four years I have put on 6 flipping stone:eek: , largely because of my current job which has taken over my whole life, and my GREED!!!! This Cambridge thing is great because you dont have to think about what tiny morsel to eat for your next meal, and although I miss real food a bit, I dont miss the food obsession you get with normal diets. I have just discovered adding hot water to the shakes (yes I am SO SLOW!), which is keeping me happy at the moment! The soups are pretty good too.
Have you tried the physillium husk stuff yet?

I need someone to keep me on the straight and narrow!! I'll come and play!! lol

I really NEED to lose as much as I can before moving to plymouth in a few weeks. I just don't want to be feeling self-conscious when meeting new people. I'd love to be at goal before starting my pgce in september so I can join in with 'normal' things like having lunch with my classmates!!

Anyone want to give me a kick up the bum?!

Hi, can I join too? I've lost 22lbs & need to lose QUITE A BIT MORE, lol!
I did a BEd & know how you need to be fit chasing kids around! & those uni canteens, full of 'naughties' BUT at least now they sell fruit & healthier options. Stress of exams, planning lessons, long & short term planning... um wonder why I packed it up & finished it off as a plain BA????lol Enjoy it though! What age are you looking at, nursery, primary, infant or secondary?

Knock knock - can I come play too? Started SS exactly a week ago and lost 17lbs. I get weighed at my Gym (been told not allowed to get on the scales again now til next Wednesday...) Have had no further contact from my CDC (thought she was supposed to phone 3 days after?!) so hope you all have good ones - and if not - hey least we'll have each other and these god-send boards to help us on our way!

Went to Floroda Nov 2006 and didnt have the holiday I really wanted as I was just paranoid about not fitting on rides (which I did..!) so my goal is a 10st weight loss ready for when we go again in Nov 2008 (go every 2 years) and even allow myself to be photographed (been twice and dont have any pics of me at Disney how sad an act am I huh?!)

TT xx

Secondary RE hopefully, have my interview in 2 weeks to get onto the course... fingers crossed I get it!! (I just have to get my head around the flippin presentation they want me to do first!!)

I know what you mean about needing to lose 'QUITE A BIT MORE', it feels never-ending doesn't it?!

We will get there though!!!

Oooh - Can I play??

I've been SSing for 5 weeks today and I've lost 2 stone (had a dodgy week in the middle which set me back a bit!). I want to lose about 20lbs before we go to Mexico in 5 weeks and my 2nd target is to be under 14 stone (based on an approx 4lbs per week loss and allowing for a holiday gain) before my cruise at the end of August. I've bought a gazelle exercise machine thingy for the house so I'm going to be using that every day but I've also just ordered a pedometer too so that should help ensure I'm getting plenty of exercise.

Support is so important I think so here's to our future successes!!

Hi, really glad so many of us are getting on board this thread train! I am a teacher as well, so am enjoying the holiday, and really hoping to make 2 stone off before I go back in ten days. 7 lbs to go though! Had a few tricky days over the weekend, but feel much better today! Thanks everyone! Mrs. Wobble, sounds like you have some great holidays coming up, you lucky thing! We have moved house recently and the only holiday we are getting is Ourgate (lol), flipping broke!

How are we all today? Everyone drinking enough water? :tear_drop: :tear_drop: :tear_drop:

I'm huffed - I stupidly stood on the scales this morning and I weigh a pound more than yesterday - what's that all about??? Well the scales are going away and I'm going to stick to what the weigh in scales say from now on!!

As for holidays....yes, this is a bumper year for us but we were in the same boat as you 2 year ago after we moved house. We holidayed at home that year and I actually enjoyed it - was nice to really enjoy our new home. I can't wait to go to Mexico - really looking forward to it although it's all inclusive so I'll need to be careful and not go crazy, but I'm going to just enjoy it and deal with the consequences when I get back. The cruise is only a 4 day thing with my mum - so not as fancy as it sounds but it is a girls pampering trip so i want to be looking and feeling my best so I really enjoy it!!

Who else has holiday plans made? It's great to have a goal to aim for isn't it?

Afternoon all having a good day although must say my concentration is crap lately !! I am an accountant so really do need to concentrate! We were thinking about going on holiday in Oct but I think i will wait till the new year so I reach goal first and can eat whilst away!

Good luck Mandy, the first two or three days defo the worst. I am just a bit bored of liquid food! I said to OH last night that if the weight loss was slow I would can it to be honest. I weigh in tomorrow, so will post. Think I have lost about 4lbs, which is ok I guess.
