    Hi Everyone, First time on Cambridge and first time on a diet forum. Have read a lot of inspirational threads on here and some of the before and after pics are absolutely amazing!! I think I would benefit from the support from others, and hopefully I can give some support myself.
    Yesterday - Day 1 start weight 12stone 4 1/2lbs
    Target weight 9stone 4, so let the weight lose commence!!

    End of Day 2

    Felt quite shaky and dizzy today not to mention moody but that's to be expected in the early day so not to worry. Due to that been a lazy 1.
    B - apple & cinnamon porridge..not a fan of the texture or taste tbh :(
    L - Strawberry sachet shake..yum!!
    D - Leek & Potato soup..also nice
    2.5 litres of water. 1 black tea and 3 green teas.
    Peeing like a racehorse all day long lol x

    Still felt quite weak physically today but much stronger mentally, faced food temptation by preparing food for my partner, was hard so used to nibbling a wee bit here and there when cooking and licking spoons ect..
    Still 100% on track, opted for quite a variety of flavours to try for my first week and been enjoying them all so far bar the porridge, I actually can't bring myself to eat it, anyone else feel this way about the porridge?

    Hi Amy, good luck for your goal of 4 Stone. I'm finding it not to bad so far, think once I see my first scales result on Saturday it will encourage me more. How about you? We're you successful last time? X

    Hi Micky, congratulations on your amazing weight loss of nearly 4stone, that's brill!! :) have you got far to go? Don't lose hope now this far down the road...
    I'm still feeling pretty weak and tired on day 5 100% SS but looking forward to the scales on Saturday to show myself it's worth it x

    Thank you! :) yes I have around another 2stone to loose for my next target. Just keep the scales in mind, also I found it good to set mini targets. My first one was 2 stone and down a clothes size, that helped me! :)

    Now on Day 6 and less than 48 hours till my first weigh in, feeling a lot better today, I went through a is this all worth it stage the last day or 2. Foo temptations are absolutely everywhere. I am a care worker in a residential home so giving out meals and feeding residents are a daily task. HARD!!
    I am going clubbing on Saturday night, I know Cambridge say no drink but we live in the real world and no food and no drink is just too depressing lol, what kind of things do people drink if you do take 1? I was thinking vodka and diet coke as this wont effect ketosis??

    Gemzo I'm going clubbing Sat night too as its my sister's birthday and although i would quite happily go out and not eat and only drink water and still enjoy myself...I dont want to :D haha. At the end of the day im in no real rush to lose weight.. id like to lose 2lbs a week and im sure thats do-able with a few cheats now and again...
    Good luck for your WI...im sure youll be pleasantly surprised :D
