    Yes, I'm new too!! :D

    I'm starting Cambdridge Sole Source this week, just building up to it sensibly at the moment.

    I've decided that enough is enough and it's about time I finally get in control of this weight malarky.

    Thanks miss bee. Nice to meet you and good luck to you yoo. I'm liking it a lot already and I think the support is invaluable to many people that maybe don't have the help and support of the people around them. Oh and yes, plonks is very nice. :)

    Hey!
    Welcome to the site (even though I've been here just a day!) - it seems a great place to be. Interested to hear more about this cambridge thingy if you have any info? It might be something I'd be interested in!

    Thanks very much Marmaduke89.

    Well from researching different VLCD's, Cambridge seems to be the most popular. It has very good variety and seems to be worth paying that bit extra for, compared to some of the cheaper options.

    Have a look at the Cambridge section on this forum, as there is loads of excellent information and advice. Also take a look at the website:

    Thanks ! :D Decided it was about time I kicked myself up the :kissass: and did something about it rather than sit here and say I hate being fat !! Slow week this week , STS , but better than putting on I guess !!

    It makes it so much easier when you know you have people who are going through the same thing !

    :D

    Yes, being around people that are going through the same and others that have been through it, is very important and certainly does make it easier.

    I have tried to lose weight in the past and although I've sometimes done really well, I've never been strong enough or tried hard enough to keep it going. I also never really had much support or understanding before either though, so looking back I really feel like I was fighting a losing battle.

    Now that I am better educated and also in far better company on MiniMins, I am determined to take control and work towards a much healthier and happier life. :)

    I can relate to everything you said there ..
    I have lost lots of weight before, gotto an ideal weight for me , but then life issues, and not being in a happy place .. well , you can see by my weight where that got me !
    But like you , I am determined this time and WILL do it , and WILL maintain it when I eventually get there !
    We will all keep ourselves on the right track Im sure , and when we do fall to the wayside, which Im sure we will sometimes, we will all pick each other up , dust ourselves down and get back on that track !!
    But for now ... that track, for me , is leading to bed !
    So, goodnight , welcome again .. and hope you have a good day tomorrow :D

    Hi. Doing well thanks. Just winding down to my start, which should be tomorrow. I'm feeling confident, although I know that it still won't be that easy really.
