Started the Cambridge Diet today. Weight Watchers was ok for short term but far too much scope for cheating for a food addict like me.
My BMI is 46, which is shocking, although at a GP checkup a few hours earlier he admitted I am in tiptop health and all the checks he did were spot on. He did agree I need to lose weight now before I get much older (I am 37 now) and although he doesn't agree with VLCDs he didn't forbid me from going on it. Just made a few pointed comments.
My husband is 100% behind me doing this, my kids don't really get it other than my soon-to-be-teen who thinks it sounds revolting. I hope she is wrong!!
Strawberry shake for breakfast - wasn't bad, tasted a lot like Angel Delight but shakes aren't my thing so am looking forward to soup more! My throat kept closing up on me and from the comments my husband was making while I glugged it down all I can say is thank god it wasn't vanilla
But its done, the drinking of 2.25L of water will be a doddle as I do that anyway, and I only have to do this two more times today!!
I have no idea how I will get round it at work without telling anyone but am hoping they will believe its Slimfast or something more "socially acceptable" and leave me be til I am ready to own up. Not sure how a blender will go down in the work kitchen!
So here goes, every week I will update my weight so its clear how well I am doing (lets think positive!). I have 6 weeks til the first social event that I can't escape from that involves a 4 course meal, so I want to be at least 28 lbs lighter my then.
I CAN do it. I WILL do it.
