    Well, day 3 of cambridge weight plan comes to a close! I am so motivated and excited for my journey and can't wait to see where I end up!

    I have never joined any forum sites or blogs before so am not familiar with all the functions and abbreviations!

    Anyone else just starting cambridge who would like support or a buddy then I would certainly appreciate it! Though I'm not sure how all this works?

    start weight: 14st 13lb
    height: 5ft 6in
    goal: 11st

    Super good luck to everyone on a fat burning ketosis mission in 2014 xx

    Wow! We are like twins or something! Except I'm fatter (according to our stats) teehee!

    Day three today for you too? So why in earth did you start on a Tuesday not Monday then? My excuse : my daughters 1st birthday on Monday and I was not ready to miss out on baking and eating cake!! (Do you think that's a forbidden word on diet forums?!!)

    Lol but you are taller! I decided to do cwp sunday evening when my friend popped in. She has lost 21lbs in 6 weeks and she looked like she didnt havent any weight to lose. I was inspired and grabbed the bull by the horns. Luckily I managed to arrange an appt that evening for monday afternoon and started the plan Tuesday morning!

    It's ok I think I saw all the posts you thought were missing! I've just had my first shake of the day (banana) and 2 1/2 pints water down already by 8am!! But I have been up since 5am with my youngest :-(

    Do you normally have your first shake at that time? I have to wait till about 11 then 2nd at 3 and 3rd sbout seven or I probably wouldnt make it through! Have struggled today but I didnt sleep well at all last night prob only had 3 hours sleep so that made today more difficult. How was your day?

    Hi ladies,

    I thought I'd say hello, I had a similar start weight to you both, only I am a few months into the diet. I started dieting at 15st almost 4 months ago, switched to cambridge at the start of feb at 14st and am currently 11st 10lbs. I'm 5ft 7 and have a goal weight of 10st - ambitious I know but it's going well! :) I'm only a few pounds off having lost 3 and a half stone in total and a healthy BMI of 25. Delighted! I guess I just wanted to say if you are determined and focused you can do really well on this diet, best of luck ladies! :)

    Wow that is an incredible achievement. Very pleased for you. Did you start on ss and if so how long did you do that for? My first weigh in today and lost 6lbs. Feeling a bit deflated as it felt like so much more of a loss!!

    I've been on step 1 SS mostly, I did 6 weeks on SS and then 1 week on step 2 and the next 2 weeks I was away on holidays. To my surprise I only put on 5lbs over those 2 weeks even though I ate and drank far too much. I've just done 2 weeks of SS to get me back into it and am switching on Friday after I meet my CWC. I've done enough SS and I'm at a weight where it would be unhealthy for me to stay on it. Don't want to start losing my hair! I'm not sure if I'm going to switch to SS+ or step 2 though. I didn't like step 2 the last time I did it, it knocked me out of ketosis and I felt more hungry than when I was on SS. But I think my CWC is going to say step 2 is the healthier choice at this stage.

    3 weeks in is great brighton_chick, you are defo over the worst. After the first 2 weeks I got my energy back and was feeling much better and rarely got hungry. I stuck with it 100%, never cheated once (well aside from that 2 week holiday ;) ) I seem to really struggle going into ketosis so its not worth it to knock myself out.

    6lbs is brilliant clairey92, congrats! :) I know you can read about people on here with very large losses their first week but given your start weight that is very good, everybody is different. My first week I lost 7lbs, that is low in comparison to some peoples first weigh in but I'm really happy with my overall loss to date. Did you take measurements? There were weeks I didn't lose that much on the scales but lost more in inches, I find that and clothes getting looser even more motivating than the change in weight :)

    Hiya! My first shake is anytime between 8 - 9. Second anytime between 12 - 2. Third anytime between 6.30 - 8. I'm so focused on what I want to achieve, that I just distract myself through any hunger pains!

    I have trouble sleeping this week too!! :-(

    I think negative side effects getting better though...

    Soci - you are an inspiration! You must be so thrilled! Well done, and best of luck with the last shift of weight you want so much! X

    Thanks for that Soci. You are right I lost 4 in of my tummy!! Mainly due to water retention but my clothes are definitely looser. Am feeling more positive again now and still havent cheated even when I felt down the other day. I keep looking forward to my goal and have started getting out some clothes I havent been able to wear for a while, that is helping to keep me focused. Day 10 today and feeling rather good! X
