    Good Morning Ladies :D

    Well as the title says, I am contemplating moving from CD back to Slimming World so thought that I would say hello.

    I have been doing CD for two weeks now and promised myself that this would be my last time as I am becoming a serial restarter and decided that if I couldn't stick to it long term this time then I would find something else.

    I have done SW in the past and it has worked really well for me so I "think" that I am off to join my local group on Tuesday.

    I love CD and the losses are fab but I just don't seem to be able to stick to it for any considerable amount of time and really, really do admire those people that can!

    So that's me really, I just wanted to say Hi :p

    Thanks Sharon :) You did really well on it for 7 weeks, well done! I love the SW plan and the red days seem to work really well for me as I have a medically related carb intolerance so red days are really good for me.
    I am going to join my local class on Tuesday, I really think that the classes are an invaluable part of SW.
    Have a lovely day xx

    Thanks taz,

    I just wanted to add a bit more to my previous post and say, that i did gain 2lb when coming off CD, but that fell off again in a couple of days. Unfortunatly, you will gain a bit of weight when adding carbs after CD, but you just have to remember its just water and it will go, just stick to the plan 100% and all will be fine.

    Hi

    CD is the Cambridge Diet (meal replacement)

    I did CD early last year and lost 3 stones in 4 months but have put all but a couple of lbs back on.

    I have had so many failed attempts at CD and WW since June last year that I finally decided enoughs enough and I'm off to SW tonight having never done this diet before!!

    Good luck!
