    So it's day one and i'm a little excited however this apple & cinnamon porridge has the consistency of wallpaper paste lol.. However I bet a few weeks in it'll be good as you have the "eating" motion.

    Vegetable soup for lunch which I hope tastes a little better..

    Got my massive bottle of water with me so just focusing on drinking as much of this 1.5L before 12.

    So I was slightly heavier on my councillors scale but thats just short term!

    Here it goes! Wish me luck!

    Hi Viita, trying to message via my mobile is so frustrating! I've been trying to post you a message since last night!!!!!!!!

    Well done on making this decision to improve your life hon! I hope you're having a brilliant day 2 - I saw your post on Gemma_Charlotte 's thread; Lawrence (Dual Dynamics) and Sharon were my Cambridge Counsellors for two years and are just as motivational and supportive in real life as they are online! LOVE them!

    Keep watching the videos and getting that water down :)
    How much do you have to lose? You'll be thrilled at the first weigh in with your weight loss so just keep going .... And whatever you do: don't nibble ANYthing xxx

    Best of luck for Day 2 x

    Hey Beverley,

    Thank you so much for your message! It's been pretty quiet on here so I really appreciate you reaching out.
    Laurence is so amazing I was watching his videos last night & got up to week 7 and couldn't believe it.
    I'm trying to do the same as he did.. 4.5lbs a week for 12 weeks!
    I have 3 and a half stone to lose hopefully by January! I've lost a lot of weight over the years but the last few stones have been so stubborn so thought i'd do it this way!

    Day two is going well and just drinking my water. I have chicken & mushroom soup for lunch and had the porridge for breakfast.

    How about you? How's everything going on your end? xx

    So a friend who is significantly larger then me & failed at the cambridge diet multiple times is trying to put me off.

    Telling me i'll get excess skin and that i'll be saggy everywhere blah blah..

    I don't care what she says i'm doing this.

    However on a brighter note the chicken & mushroom soup was pretty nice!

    Hi Viita! I'm glad your day is going well ... As for your friend .... even people that love us will perform 'subconscious sabotage' this friend is talking nonsense. You have 3 stone to lose - the beauty of drinking so much water (as well as keeping the plumbing nice and flushed lol) is that your skin elasticity and health is improved. I lost 5 st and after week 3 used my abdominiser for gentle sit ups (hate my tummy) and had NO saggy skin anywhere. Everyone is different of course, but my big sister is 4 years older than me and has lost and kept off just under 5 stone with Lighter Life with no excess skin issues and no exercise .... If your friend failed at CWP loads of times that means she knew it worked and just couldn't stick the distance, right? Whenever anyone has negative 'advice' I have a patented tight lipped smile I give and tell them I'd rather have loose skin or have my shakes than have diabetes, a heart attack, stroke and any other obesity related illnesses I can think of!! They soon drop it lol

    You just keep 'doing you' - you're doing a great job sweetie xx

    Ps: I'm having a brilliant day 4 so far :) I'm in ketosis, and once I start burning stored fat I always get a boost in determination to succeed. I love my Choc Mint shakes .... Can't be dealing with variety right now and the Choc Mint got me to minus 5 st before :)

    Hey Bev,

    Your completely right. She know's it works but could never get past day 3 and hates to think someone else could have the willpower to stick with it.
    I'm happy having a little excess skin then a load of fat there. So i'm happy with that. My CDC did say that all I should do is some sit up's and some light weights. Nothing more.
    I love working out but on this little amount of calories it can't work.

    I just ordered some ketostix so I can see if I am too so hopefully they'll arrive soon..
    How often do you check?

    Glad your having a amazing day! Just choco mint? I had that last night as it was yum and surprisngly they do fill you up!

    Not sure what flavour i'll pick tonight..

    Oh hellll no I am not cheating or even thinking of it.. I'm just drinking my water & waiting for this to pass. Nearly done my 2l and just need to do 1 more.
    My next pack is at dinner time. Not hungry at all just fed up of peeing every 30 minutes haha..

    Here here! I second Lauralou 's advice.... This too shall pass, and hopefully in the next day. Hang in there hon. You know you can do this!

    Yes, on Step 1 is not advised to go wild with the exercise.... You don't take in enough calories to sustain that. If you have major questions (or even niggling ones) call your counsellor or leave a message for Dual Dynamics? Lawrence is usually good at answering back.

    Have some water (not too much) and sit quietly for a minute mediating and concentrating on why you're doing this .... Distraction may help. Big hugs xx

    And the peeing tapers off when your body gets used to the water :)

    I've lost 5 stone with exercise and healthy eating over the last 3 years but shifting the last few stone was taking so long..
    I was losing 1lb a week if I was lucky..

    I'm only on day 2 & I can't wait to weigh in on Monday!

    Just had my 3rd shake and felt no longing at all when my 'Sunshine Boy' filled his 15 year old boots with kfc lol I'm on a roll :)

    I have 4 shakes a day because I'm tall so one more to go at 9ish. I can't wait to list 3 or 4 stones so I can save some money and have 3 shakes a day!

    How're you ladies getting on? x
