first timer(virgin vlcd)

:confused: hi just though i`d write and tell you all that i have been reading all your threads(well not all because there is tons and tons). I wasn`t too sure if CD was for me and i was in two minds which way to turn, but well i have my appointment to see my CDC this evening and collect my first pack, fed up off aching knees and painful legs and getting no support from my doctor who in December told me i must have the fat gene! tut!, plus because i`ve no illness and i`m active he doesn`t think i`m high enough risk, but if i feel same after 6 months return to him and he`ll give me osilat(think thats how you spell it), but after reading up about them i don`t fancy having the side effects.
SOOOO!!!Decided to start at a weekend because i`m off work Sunday and if everything gets really bad i can hide in bed with my water.
So tonights the night i find out what all the late meals snacking and binge eating has really done to my weight:(.
Well i`ll nip back every now and again to tell you how i feel and keep reading all your treads to keep me going.

Bye x

Hi All
Just returned from CDC omg!! 21st 4lb.:cry::eek::eek:
I think i was in denial or just pretending for the last 5 yrs, not saying i was always right weight or should i say offical wieght for hight. 10st 7 when i was 18 to 22 then after 2nd child went to 15st when i got divorced in 2000 i was 22st when i met my now partner was 18stone, but guess i got in my comfy zone and weigh crept on, anyway thats in the past tomorrow morning i open a new chapter in my life and remember whilst i drink my first shake " i`m doing this for me and noone else"
my lovely cdc lady said i`ve to do this in stages i`ve to look at lowering my bmi to 40 from 47 which is around 18stone so thats my first goal 18stone.
so tomorrow is my first day, please god let it be a easy day at work just to get me through, might work from home so i don`t have to watch them eat bacon butties and cakes.
thanks for the support so far and heres to the first week on CD
bye x

Its day 5 for me today , yesterday was trying for me but i got over it . Rollercoaster ride we are riding ! On bad days i'll just look at photos of me thinking thats why i'm on the ride !

Congratulations on getting through day 1.

Think small steps your first big target is, I see, BMI 40. Even think in 7 lbs as mini mini targets

Take the diet a day at a time and on a hard and difficult day an hour at a time

drink plenty of water but not too much

and keep coming on here and look at the inspirational Slide Show it will definately motivate you

:Doh i just had spicy tomatoe mmmmm now this i can drink/eat (do it in a jug eat it with a spoon makes me feel normal) i had it instead of a shake cause wasn`t to sure what to expect after the veg soup experiance.

Anyway its lovely just made shep pie for there tea though i`d do it now cause evenings is my usual picky time and i would be tempted to test mash or mince but nothing past my lips which im very proud of.

Also just had a cup of peppermint organic tea very nice more nicer once its cooled down a bit.

Had to give in to the headache tabs this afternoon, son here with his mates playing on playstation, so house full of 15/16yr old isn`t good.

Also got some ketostik whilst i was out bit confuzzed which is the good pink and which is the bad pink or is any pink good pink:confused:????

Hi Cazjane
I know the feeling of having the mates round , my son whos almost 14 had his two mates round to sleep friday night , they wanted to go on the xbox360 and play pc and watch films , why do they call it a sleep over ? they never sleep lol
With headache Tabs i always find they never seem to help much being on this CD .Ketostik sticks yes i know what your saying very confusing reading the tube , i have loads left don't really use them , as i keep forgeting in the morning , well first thing is to rush to the loo in the morning lol
How is it going anyway ?

Hi Cazjane

Welcome to CD and well done on getting through your first couple of days!! Before you know it CD will have become a way of life! Re Ketostix aim for one of the first two shades, if its dark it can mean you are a little dehydrated, it will usually be dark in the mornings when you haven't been drinking for a while.

Hi you lot x

I struggled last night round about 7pm all i wanted was beans on toast:eat:, was a bit weepy:cry: and wondered " why I was doing this to myself but told myself this is my last option".So when upstairs with bottle of water till others had finished there meal and came back down, feeling past about a hour later.

But after that everything was fine had my butterscotch shake watched telly for a bit and when bed. But must say when I was walking around I felt a little wierd hummm kinda drunk feeling, maybe thats normal I don`t know.
Anyway today is day 3. Had butterscotch shake again not on perpose but just 1ST one out of box already 1/2 way down a 1.5 lt of water. MrCj can`t get over how many times i get up in night for a wee, thinking of getting a bucket cause bathroom downstairs lol.

Just made full cooked breckie for them so thats it till later for cooking, going to get him to take me out shopping when he`s washed pots get a smaller size top so I can shrink into it.:brainfart:Dont know if thats a good idea or not lol
be back later
day 3
wee`d on ketone stick and its the 2nd pink does that mean i`m in the `K` club now or is it to early?

Also just been tesco they got 70% sale on clothes so if anyone wants to buy some clothes that not going to cost the earth, speically if your going to srink fast.
day 3
Well just been out for couple of hours with friends who own local pub,drank water even thou they have all been trying there best to make me drink cider, telling me one drink wouldnt matter, just been saying to MrCj it might not matter but it matters to me(even thou I know I can`t drink) anyway home had choc orange shake, and going to finish my course work before going bed.

see you all morrow xxxx
p.s just got MrCj to take my starting pics but not ready to post them just yet.... but i will XXXX
