    Thought id do this as I see the same people on here day in and day out but i dont really know them well and they dont really know me well.

    So I will start.

    My name is Sarah, ive been married for 4 years this Thursday coming (yay). I have 2 kids, stephen is 4 and Imogen is 14 months. I live in North cambridgeshire close to lincs/norfolk border in a mall village that im slowly getting used too!
    I have a ex racing greyhound that is one of the joys of my life and shes a complete nut!

    Ive been doing cambridge for 6 weeks now and 17lbs worth of crap gone already. I want the weight off to live life to the full and make life better all around for my family.

    Hi to you all, here's a bit about me...

    I'm Char and I'm about 4 stone over-weight. I done this diet before and lost 2 stone, but got slowly back to eating crap again, so now need to get the ball rolling! Been with my partner for nearly 4 years and we have a son aged 2. We live in Hampshire/surrey borders.
    My main reason for losing weight is firstly for a better, healthy lifestyle, secondly, I love clothes and hate it that I can't just go out and buy what I want because either gut looks too big, or bum, or arms and so on. So lloking forward to being able to pick out what I like!!
    Really feeling motivated, hope it lasts!!

    Hi all,

    Well my name is Heledd, I'm 28 years old and I work in parliament as a press and political officer. I'm only on my second week of CD and aim to lose four and a half stone, taking me to my lowest weight since I was about 10!

    I've always been overweight - at one point I was over 19 stone so I've managed to lose a hell of a lot but not enough.

    Reasons for losing weight? To feel fitter, healthier; be able to buy some sexy winter boots and clothes that I want to wear rather than ones that hide my figure; more confidence about my apperance... Usual really!

    Hi all

    Im Karen, im 34 and i live in Cambridgeshire right in between Peterborough and Wisbech. I live with my husband of nearly 2 years and our 7 year old staffie called Jack. Im now into week 5 of the CD and i have lost 16lbs. I was on Lipotrim for 6 weeks before this and i lost 2st 1lb during that time.

    Although i still need to lose another 3-4 stone, im really starting to notice the difference now, not just in how i look but also in how i feel on a day to day basis. Mostly its just silly things like not getting out of breath whilst climbing the stairs and its a damn sight easier getting out of the car now lol.

    Hi I'm Caryl, 28, and single mummy to Chloe who is 14 1/2 months. We live on the south coast in Hampshire. Been on my own for a year now, so what with being a mummy to a toddler and working full time, I don't really have time for hobbies unfortunately :(

    Have lost 5 stone now with Cambridge since 9th June 2008, however have had a bit of a rubbish month. Currently doing 810ish, with a proper restart planned on SS next monday when I will be able to throw myself back in to it properly!

    Hi All,

    I'm 23, live with my Parents and crazy Cat - born & bred in Essex, but not a stereotype one! :D

    I work full time in Insurance, have been with my Man for 3.5 years which is no mean feat seeing as he is across the Channel during the week and I see him only a couple of weekends in a month.

    I've previously done WW & SW - got bored of them after I lost the first stone. Been on CD since 1st Aug, one of my Sisters in Law lost 5stone on LL and my Bro started LL, then went onto CD and lost over 5stones too.

    I'm proud to say I have lost 29lbs in 2 months 1 week - the most I have ever lost and the compliments are beginning to roll in from everyone which makes me very happy :).

    Hello,

    I am Helen, 37yrs (38 in March) I have lost 37lb on Lipotrim and recently moved to CD810 plan, and I love it.

    My fiance, Keith and I have been together since 2002, we lived in Holland for a while and moved back a couple of years ago.

    After years in offices I now work as a Carer and level one risk assessor (I care for people in their own houses). I love my job.

    we are planning to move to Devon as soon as house sells, and get married after move.

    we have a boxer, zebedee, a nutty boxer at that! No kids for either of us.

    I have fibromyalgia, schuermanns disease and an underactive thyroid (on meds for it now though) and wanted to lose weight for health reasons as well as wanting to look good.

    finding it sureal that I am a size 12 instead of 18... its really weird.

    anyone else get that?
