Well today is my frist day of the cambridge diet and its ok so far. Decided to come on line to fill in some time as all im thinking about is food and what i cant have.

So if anyone got any advice for tips to help the virgin get through the first couple of days great.

Do a list of your goals...

What you want from losing weight.

How you feel it will make a difference to your life.

What steps you can take to make sure this happens for you.

Make your home environment more conducive for dieting.

Set yourself some mini goals.

Water is key and the first few days are tough and be prepared for this, but it does get better.

Look at the inspiration thread to see the wonderful change in those who have done so well.

You could get yourself a nice weight tracker from the

What about an avatar?

Write your name in glitter! - Glitter Graphics - Free Glitter Graphics - MySpace Glitter Graphics

Or one of my favourite is to play with my virtual you can change her weight and hair style and of course dress her in the latest fashion.
My Virtual Model - Home

These are just a few ideas.

I feel reading how others are doing along with keeping a diary helps to keep you on track.

Good luck with your weight loss journey.

welcome to minis!

make sure u r drinking plenty of water while doing this diet as it is filling and will help with the headaches and stuff that u might suffer from this first week.
coming on here is great for getting away from food and keeping urself focussed. the arcade is good (am totally addicted to "quick words" now :eek: )

have u had a look thru the inspiring before and after pics yet? also reading some of the diaries would be good for motivation (not to mention taking ages to read so u cant go and fridge-pick :) )

post like mad if u need any help or just wanna chat! so many people on here and all of them supportive and lovely.

have a great first week

Hey there :)

Well done on starting, I know the next few days will be difficult, but keep going, it will be worth it :)

Keep us posted and let us know how you're doing :)

Congrats on starting ! Give it a few days and once you are in ketosis things will get easier. Be REALLY nice to yourself, drink loads and have lots of distractions around.....books, magazine, catalogues with nice clothes in to daydream !, nail varnish (can't nibble with wet nails!), CD's etc etc.

Keep coming on here to get inspired !

Think you made a good choice staying in, expecting yourself to cope out on your first few days would be hard.

keep at it, good luck !


Welcome and good luck - I am on day 14 now and although I wonder how I am going to get through to July without eating anything, I just remind myself that by my birthday I could be 7 stone lighter! That's an amazing thought and it's really keeping me going!
