    Hi everyone :wavey:

    Some of you may remember me from last year. I had been on the cambridge diet for a good long while, successfully loosing 8 stone :D I had 1.5 stone remaining to loose when I began to feel unwell.

    Convinced I had flu, my symptoms didn't go away and I learnt I was pregnant! :D

    Hubby and me were both over-joyed as the main reason for me doing a food replacement diet was to be able to try for a baby. With PCOS and being obese, my chances were slim at that point.

    When I told my CDC (who was also over the moon for us) I had to stop ss'ing straight away, and did gain weight over my pregnancy (3.5 stone :sigh:) Not the end of the world as I know it will come off again thanks to CD!

    My main reason for posting is to inform you that gave birth to a gorgeous little boy, who we have named Elliot. He is absolutely perfect, and has been well worth the ketosis headaches, shivers and hunger pangs!

    I am so thankful to the cambridge diet for the opportunity to be a Mummy that I plan to write to the cambridge magazine for a very heartfelt thanks to my CDC for her marvellous support and the minimins CD forum, which I used to live on to help me get through the difficult days.

    I do intend to re-join at some point this year, to give me the chance to loose my baby weight and that extra stone, then work up to maintenance to ensure I remain a yummy Mummy :D I am breastfeeding at the moment, so I have between 3-6 months of food (depending on if Elliot remains satisfied with my milk) and i'll be back all guns blazing ready to join the CD party! :happy036:

    Sending you all positive vibes on your CD journey's.

    Big Hugs :hug99: Emma x x x

    Good news. Both my kids were cd kids :). Breastfeeding can be quite addictive. Matthew was 10 months old by the time I decided to stop!

    :family2:Congratulations Emma. That's absolutely wonderful. If you eat healthily while you breastfeed, you should loose a little weight anyhow. If the mum is eating a well balanced diet it's also much better for your baby too.

    Congratulations on Elliot. I am back again too, and remember you from last year, though I don't have a baby to show for my weight gain, so you have done really well.
