From CD to WW - for my wedding :) xx

#1
Hi All

I have umm'ed and ahh'ed about switching to WW for a while, but before now I had only got to 810 in the Cambridge Diet. Now I have gone right up to maintenance and feel it would be a better time.
I started Cambridge at 17 stone in January 2009, 7 stone over the course of last year.

I am now getting married this September, and my weight keeps fluctuating, I think possibly because I am exercising a bit, but also, because I am eating out more because of all the wedding plans, and the Cambridge Diet doesn't really allow so much for this. It is a lot more focused on fresh food (which where I can I am eating, but on days where dresses/suits/cakes are being hunted out, or we are showing parents around venues etc, and then we end up eating out - it is often a case of picking what is best on the menu) and then I am completely confused as to what I am allowed for the rest of the day. So I think with WW, I would have a much better idea of what I should then have for the remainder of the day, and should then stop this constant fluctuation of my weight, and bring it down in time for my wedding.

I am aiming to lose a stone in time for the big day, seeing as it is a little too high for my liking at the moment.

Anyway, I have worked out that for now, my points allowance stands at 18pts for the day, I just have to start working on what points are what for foods etc. I also know I am slightly carb sensitive so I will be sticking to my wholewheat pasta and cous cous which should help in the long run, but without cutting out the carbs all together.

This post has gotten a little longer than I intended, but I think it has helped me finally make a decision, and I feel better for it. xx

Thanks Becky. Cambridge started off on Sole Source, which is soups/shakes/mousses etc, and then you work up the plans adding meals in as you go (all fresh). It's a very low carb diet also. I didn't do Cambridge light heartedly though. I had tried lots of other diets first, that just didn't work for me, and also went through Dr's and tried tablets from them - Reductil and Xenical, but just didn't work, so Cambridge was my last resort x

Agree with the others, stick with WW if you are happy :)
You also have to be BMI25+ 1 stone to do it (but anyway we are talking WW here as that's what I am moving to :) )

Looking forward to getting to know you all on the board. xx
