    I should be restarting on weds! We can support each other, I am pants at dieting lol.

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you weigh and what is your goal weight?

    Hey and well done on choosing CD its an amazing plan :)
    I would say the best thing you can do is be positive about it , get that excitement and double it ........ see the diet as a huge positive step to a thinner you :)

    also when you are hungry drink water and distract yourself , i always get cleaning , rearranging , dusting etc in my first few days

    remember that after the first week , which is tough , it gets much easier ... push through it and let each hour that you manage spur you on to do the next , feel proud and take strength from your success .

    Make mini goals , dont look at the big picture , chop it down into chunks .. aim to get through the first hour , first day , loose the first stone ... and it flies by !!!!

    and lastly come on here a lot , ask for support and advise when you need it , there is always someone on here that knows exactly how you are feeling :D

    Me tooooooo, honestly, i weighed myself yesterday, went in my bedroom, thought of food, went back into the bathroom to weigh myself again and i'd gained 3lbs!!!! Just not on! So will be nice to have someone starting on the same day as myself :)

    Currently weigh 18 stone (Never thought i'd tell anyone that lol) and to be honest i just want to lose about 3 stone before i get pregnant and then go back on the diet after ive had my baby and finished breast feeding. Im sure it will work out like that lol.

    How about you? How much do u want to lose?? x x

    Hi and good luck. I've just rang up a CDC and am meeting her on Thursday. I've never done this type of diet before and really hope it works. I'm a single parent so am not sure how I'm going to manage cooking for the kids and not eating myself and I'm also concerned that if I lose weight too quickly I'll end up with lots of loose skin. xx

    Hi tiffybee, well we're in the same boat so we'll have to spur each other on. Im just trying to get it in my head, get the first week over with and then im sure things will get easier.
    I dont have any children yet and my hubby has a takeaway (YES, a TAKEAWAY lol) so he normally eats in the shop so at least i wont have to cook for him. Iv told him if he brings a kebab or a pizza back for me im gonna divorce him lol. But, like i said in a previous post, i just hve to think of food and i gain weight ):
    Good luck with urs too, im sure we'll be congratulating each other in the next couple of weeks :)

    I actually find I love cooking for the kids when I am on CD ( after the first week or so ) ... I also enjoy sniffing food .. its amazing but a good sniff of chocolate can convince my brain that I have had some and leaves me quite satisfied !!! I know a few people who enjoy cooking and sniffing food when on CD so hope you are the same as it makes life a little easier :)

    My goal is 12st. But I would like to be in the 11's

    Good luck Jenbob, I am 5ft9 and went from 18st 2 to 13.4 from 25th Aug to mid December 2009, although I was not classed as a healthy weight I did not stand out in a crowd,felt confident and found clothes relatively easy to buy.
    The weight losses are so quick they will keep you motivated, and the inspirational stories and support on minimins are undoubtedly a tremendous help.
    I messed up for various reasons from Spring onwards, I gave sw another try,but here I am back on cd again as I know there is no other way for me.
    Good luck on your cd journey and baby plans x

    Lol, that’s me that is! I love cooking for DH and the children. I live vicariously and ‘eat’ by watching them and cookery programmes too (I bloomin’ love watching them so much!).

    The first week is HARD, it really is, there’s no point denying it, BUT it gets so much easier. In fact I’m less hungry on CD than I was over Christmas when I was eating loads and loads of regular food.

    Oh, and don’t get put off if you find some of the shakes/bars or soups are minging, there will be some that you’ll like, and you can live on those just fine. I live on a banana shake, choc&mint bar and a hot choc made with choc tetra every day because those are the only ones I like. Everyone’s different, and it can be a pain discovering which tastes you like. I remember gagging trying to ‘eat’ some of them. But it is horses for courses and you will have to find out for yourself which you enjoy.

    You will do it! The results are SOOO satisfying, it’s the motivation you need!

    good luck everyone starting this week. I restarted today. I love CD and although there are hard days, it is fantastic once you get into it! I survive the first few days by lots of sleep, baths, water and distraction! Saying that i might be struggling by tomorrow! XXX

    Thank you so much Mrs. Taurus, wow,fantastic weight loss in such a short time, thats amazing. I get sick of people saying i suit this size, its nice of them but i just want to experience being a 'normal' weight for once, especially before i fall pregnant. I am quite active as i have a horse and ride a few times a week. Ive always been big but ive never felt unhealthy because of it and never had any problems, just embarrassing moments every now and then. And my husband has always been smaller than me so feel odd next to him lol.
    Anyway we'll see what the next few weeks bring!
    Thanks again :)

    I'm also starting on a VCLD on Wednesday (delivery day!). Not CD, but Exante. It's the same principle though.

    I'd love to join a support group. I need to loose loads.

    These are my initial goals:
    14lbs by end of January
    22lbs (10% of initial body weight) by end of February
    35lbs by Easter

    Fingers crossed!

    Oops, just realised this is a Cambridge Diet forum. Sorry!

    Have to disagree with you there - commit from NOW - have a protein day tomorrow, cut the carbs out and that will ease your way onto the CD packs with fewer problems than if your body has a massive carb fest to get rid of.
    Good luck!
