CD had changed my life............


Cambridge Consultant
Im sitting here at work...... ok my tummy is a little sore.... But I feel like I am in a new body and a new person...I used to sit at work feeling yucky and demotivated and slumped over my desk..

Today Im sitting upright feeling good and confident.. Loving the sunshine have a top on which is slightly too big but feeling good in it..

I dont love myself as in think I look great but Im really starting to like what I see its a weird feeling but my confidence is so on the way back... its a little scary..

I spend alot longer bothering with myself and asking my husband if this looks ok and that looks ok.... I think Im driving him a bit mad to be honest.. but its because I feel so much better......

At work loads of men have come over and made comments to me..(which I must say Im not good I get embarrased) Your getting so skinny your disappear soon..and then this older man came up to me and said Have you lost lots :) of weight.... I said well I have lost weight he said I wish i was 40 years younger ..... YUCK!!!!! lol

Anwyay...... I LOVE CD so much I feel like I want to tell every person out there who is big that they must do it as its changed my life.. but obviously I cant and everyone is big for different reasons but I would love to change other lifes as I know how good I am feeling xxx

What a lovely post to read ... I am so very pleased for you , so you should be pleased with yourself your doing so well i know your encouraging others,

it's so nice to start feeling good in your own skin after so long ! - i am driving hubby mad as well but i know he loves it as his getting his wife back the one he married not the fat depressive i had become ,

CD - can really change your life ,
Yay its a great positive post and sure this will motivate people struggling or just starting out! ... Youve came so far and you look so much younger in your new pic than when you started hope that doesnt offend you but im sure it wont cause you look amazing like a different person!

CD is great and its made me much more confident not to the point where id ever love myself i hate people like tha.. but I totally get your point of feeling happy in your own skin :)

Well done and youve inspired alot of people on here!

Enjoy all the compliments - you've worked so hard to achieve them so spend some time basking in your achievements! It's a great feeling having your confidence come back isn't it? Well done!


can see the end in sight!
what a fab post! i am so happy for you! you look beautiful in your new pic, you can see the confidence radiating off you. well done!

I have been getting loads more comments, people at the pub have been treating me nicer (old yorkshire regulars) as if i am now worth talking to! which kinda p*sses me off as i was still pretty awesome when i was fatter!

i am bad at taking compliments too Curly, but im sure we'll get used to it!

Great posts and I can identify with it entirely

When I did CD in 2006 I lost 102 pounds and the euphoria I felt was amazing. It completely chnaged my life.

A word of warning though - KEEP IT OFF, because there is nothing worse than having all that adulation and the lovely comments and then to have to face those same people when you have put it all back on.

Well done!!


can see the end in sight!
big h - good advice! It is my worst nightmare to get all this weight off and go back to australia at the end of the year and stack it all back on again so when i come back to the UK to visit boyfriends family etc they will see be fat again! never ever going to happen.
Yeh we need to make sure we keep it off thats the main goal we should have :D But im sure we will, it would take a hell of alot of food to put back on 2 stones , 3 stones or 4 stones or whatever! Hopefully in the future even if we have a fat day we only have to look at the fat photos to snap back into 100% healthy and NOT put this weight back on :D
