    I posted a few days ago about my concern over the CDC in my area.

    Luckily for me I emailed a few CDC when I contacted the CDC I have now. Today I got an email from a CDC with her product cost list. She charges £2 per brik instead of the £2.35 that my CDC wants to charge and she doesn't have a set fee and I can order whatever I like.

    I have decided to change CDC.

    Sounds alot better hun.

    I know a few CDC's charge over RRP. I'm also not sure if they have a right to do this as this is making a profit from CD. Might be worth finding out if your other CDC has the right to do this by phoning CD.

    Glad you found a more reasonable CDC.

    good! I remember the original post.. and im so glad youve found someone else..
    it does seem to be a bit of a lottery as far as CDC's go, although most are spot on.. youve just been unlucky..
    Hope all goes well from now on

    Lol, they buy it at a reduced price direct from Cambridge, and Cambridge advise a RRP for them, but all CDCs are different and can charge what they want I think x

    glad you found a better CDC hun!

    As CDC's, they are effectively self-emplyed so they buy off Cambridge for a standard price, and then charge whatever they fancy on top. They wouldnt do it otherwise, and yuou have to take into account the time they spend on each client, the texts/telephone calls, out of hours service etc so its not unreaonable.
    If your CDC is good then your getting a bargain no matter how much they charge really!xx

    Hopefully next week. I don't drive cause I'm blind in one eye and bad sight in the other. And the only day off from work we share is Wednesday. So I might go see her wednesday morning and start it same day or the thursday.

    I'm dying to start it. I want be lighter for hubbys 22nd Birthday and maybe take him out with his mates in glasgow. But his mates know alot of gorgeous slim girls. So I'm hoping not to look so fat and frumpy.

    If I start next week... I'll have 6 weeks. I'd love to lose well over 1st by then!

    Well I don't know if I'll lose it as fast as other people because I've only got 3 stone to lose. So I'm expecting realistic losses, but I hope what happens, surpasses them!
