    Hi, everyone,

    I'm going to see my CD counsellor this evening. Then I'll be starting on SS tomorrow morning. I'd be really grateful for any moral support or advice anyone can give me.

    Thanks,

    David.

    Thanks, Trudz,

    I'll certainly take your advice. I think it's important to keep in touch with other people who are in the same boat. I've been meaning to do this for ages, but it's only now that I've plucked up the courage to do it. I'm currently 15 st 3, and my target weight's 13 st.

    Good Luck David. CD is the best diet ever and although it needs 100% commitment the results are fabulous if you stick with it. The first few days are very hard so you need to be mentally prepared for that. Once you get through the first week you will be flying.

    That is soooo doable - I've a lot more to lose than you but (fingers crossed) after weigh in on Wednesday I should have nailed the first stone.

    Well done on starting your CD journey and we're always here to give a kick up the posterior if required lol!!

    You lost 29 lbs in your first four weeks? That's very impressive. I need to lose about 31 lbs in total, but I'm in this for the long haul and I've certainly tried to prepare myself mentally for the first few days.

    Wannalose is my inspiration David - she has done fantastically well! You sound like you're in the zone and ready to tackle this head on - well done you!

    THank you David.

    I started out with 8 stone to lose though so it was bound to come off quickly at the start. I have only lost 11lb in the last 4 weeks but that is my own fault as I have been picking.

    You are guaranteed a stone a month if you stick to it so you will be at target in around 2 months.

    Thanks Georgie,

    I've been very encouraged by the stories of some of the folks on here. I'm absolutely determined to do this and I know that I can do with lots of support and encouragement. Failing that, my girlfriend will kill me if I don't. No, seriously, she's been very supportive.

    Just had my last proper meal. Good Lord, I feel like a condemned man. :( Well, the main thing is that I didn't pig out; I ate some healthy steamed chicken and vegetables. One thing's for certain: I'm not going to back out now.
