    :wave_cry: Hello All.

    I'm Mrs Scoffalot and I do (actually I did) scoff-a-lot to the heafty weight of 16 stone. (I do feel queezy when I say **write** that.)

    I'm here because 2 weeks ago after showering I sat at the end of my bed in tears because NONE of my clothes fitted me properly. I have gone so far that I have busted out of them all. Tops that wouldn't do up properly, jeans I couldn't zip up without laying on the bed taking a deep breath and quickly zipping them up only not quite able to breathe properly afterwards lol. I had to face the weight problem It was hard, I had ignored it for such a long time. First off I had to realise that for now temporarily I am a size 20, biggest I have ever been. So I went out and bought some clothes to tie me over. I got home and cried the rain then ignored my weight again:mad: because it is painful to think about really. Then on Wednesday my DD and I went to the cinema where for the first time in about 3 years I really looked at myself in a full body mirror at the cinema toilets. Not the best place to reflect your body image when your surrounded by stick thing young girls I know but thats how it happend. I spent the intire time watching the film thinking about my weight and feeling physically sick at how I look. (mortified is an understatment) So after absolutly worrying myself to the point of hysteria I decided enough was enough and I needed to tackle the growing problem. Cambridge Diet I thought! I had tried other diets WW, SW, SF and realised I am an all or nothing person. I can't save points for a glass of wine because a glass of wine leads to a bottle and then probably another, so on and so forth with everything else I expect. I researched the diet online, found a CDC (it took me at least 4 hours to pluck up the courage to contact her and then I sent her a text lol) A few texts later and there we are 4 o'clock appointment. I was in a daze. I went to the appointment which was absolutly fine I don't know why I was so worried about meeting her really. Then it was time to weigh. Shocking was the word. thats when I topped the sclaes at 16 stone, the heaviest I have ever been in my life. mesurements were taken too which I haven't read yet so I don't know what they are. I will read them soon but for now I have been shocked enough. Last night I had my "last supper with a glass of wine. Actually I am lying I had a bottle of wine, but it is all gone none left now, nothing. Went to bed feeling anxious and nervous at 1am, woke up at 5am worrying again.

    So here I am day 1
    So far I have had a black coffee no sugar.

    Jeez, I know how to ramble on, sorry for boring you all to tears but hey thats my journey to CD so far. I guess I will be hanging around here for a very long time as i think I have about 7 stones to lose (ouch that hurts)

    I'm willing to hold hands throughout this diet. Please someone hold my hand too and together we can reach our targets together.

    Mrs Scoffalot.

    Firstly hun, congratulations on taking the step to start CD. Thats probably the hardest part. I won't lie to you, the next few days are going to be very hard, but log onto Minimins, have a look through the inspirational piccies, distract yourself with a nice long bath and a pamper and most importantly hold onto that feeling of determination you felt when you decided to do CD.

    Minimins is an amazing place to get support and help, and there are CDCs here to answer any question you might have *me bows to the wonderful KD* If you are really struggling, pop onto the 'hour by hour' thread- it really does help to talk through how you're feeling.

    Once you get through the 1st week, you'll be comfortably in ketosis, feeling pretty good, and your amazing 1st week loss will spur you on.

    Good luck with the diet :)

    Thanks for your reply, I'm a little lost this morning really as I have been awake for so long. I am in for the long haul so I guess I will be popping on the hour by hour thread indeed. I think I am prepared for the gruling first week but we will see.

    Hi mrs s. Good luck with starting the diet, Im a total newbie to this forum, jut looking around and trying to work my way around the place. Im on day two of cd, so far its been ok but everytime I think of how long I need to do this for or how much weight I need to loose I get overwhelmed and panicky so Im just taking it one day at a time.
    I've not been hungry really just 'want' food iykwim, keep looking in the fridge before I realise what Im doing.
    Have only told my dp and 2 friends in rl. I feel embarrassed, daft isnt it? I usually have quite an active social life so Im going to have to get used to saying no for a while................ o so many things going round in my head at the moment, sorry for rambling on.

    Well done on starting CD! I am on Day 104 today. I'm also 5ft 4 and my start weight was 16st 6lbs. As of my weigh in on Sunday I am currently 12st 13lbs :)

    The first few days are tough. But if you can get through the first week, it will become much easier. It's all routine to me now, which is cool.

    The main thing is. However badly you get cravings or want food, do not give in! The stronger you stay, the quicker the weight will come off, and the shorter your journey will be. If you are hungry, drink water. If you are bored and craving food, find something to do to take your mind off it so the feeling passes. It will be so worth it in the long run, and you won't be on CD forever :)

    Hope that all makes sense! Good luck! xx

    Hey Mrs Scoffalot.. (great name)... but you wont be soon!
    Just wanted to wish you good luck on your cd journey..
    I loved reading your post you were so honest and so truthful to yourself and that is exactly what its about.. Facing the facts.. your not happy the way you are so Lets do something about it..
    Im not going to lie to you the first few days are the hardest but once you get through them it does get easier!!!
    Make sure you drink lots of water as it does really help and in the evenings if your feeling cold or feel like struggling when others are eating go and have a nice relaxing bath and it really does help!! (and an early night..

    I am on week 10 of my journey I am doing ss so just shakes, bars and mousse and I have now lost 37 pounds and over the moon..

    Cambridge diet is the best diet I have ever done!! I am loving it and enjoying the weight coming off..

    So stay motivated and you are on the way to being SLIM and feeling Great!!!!!

    Good luck xx

    Hello curly.

    I had to be open and honest. because I have to realise what I have done to myself over the years. admitting it was by far the hardest part. Now I am thinking that maybe the end of day 3 will be a miracle lol.

    Hi
    I think you can truly consider today to be the first day of the rest of your life. When I first started this diet almost five weeks ago-I weighed almost 16 stone myself. I've lost almost a stone and a half already and at least 18 inches. If you stick to it-this diet truly brings it's rewards. The next few days will be hard-you will need all your willpower to get you through. I posted on here, looked through the before and after pics for inspiration or took myself off for a hot shower. It took a couple of weeks for a lot of my 'cravings' to begin to disappear, but now I don't often get any and can usually make it through the day with no food dramas! It really helps from week 3 when you can have the bars-they really help to keep me going. Good luck with your CD journey and your first week WI :)

    Ok so here I am on day 2.

    Day one was ok. I didn't leave the house yesterday as I wanted to make sure that I was near the toilet and that I wouldn't be led astry lol. I started to "feel" hungry about 4ish. I had drunk 3liters of water Had a leek and potato soup at 6 and then water all the way until bed, I went to bed at 10.

    Woke up this morning with a slight headache. but overall feeling ok. Just having a breakfast shake now and lots of water!!

    Hopefully day 2 will be ok. I don't think I am anywhere near Ketosis yet. I'm not actallu sure how i'll know yet. I have a horrible taste in my mouth but I have had from the beginning I think its the residue of the shakes? I'f i'm honest I've never brushed my teeth so much in 1 day lol.

    sounds like you may be a lucky one and going into Ketosis already ! I go in on day2 , massive headache, and funny taste in mouth very common!

    Well done for taking the first step and you can do this, look at my stats!! I never thought 3 months later I would be in a size 14 with room in my jeans! from a very tight 18 ;-)
