    Hello, My name is Zoe and I started Cambridge ss 3 days ago on the 11th May. I have tried other diets before and they have worked for me but I loose about 3 stone and then the weight loss slow's down and I start to get disappointd and start to go off the rails a bit.

    I have decided to give Cambridge ss a go as I feel I need to try something where I don't need to make food decision's and go cold turkey lol. I have a long way to go and feel embarrassed by the amount of weight I need to loose but I am so gonna give this my best shot. I am finding things good on day 3, the first 2 days I felt quite unwell with a bad headach and feeling sick but today I feel much better-not been hungry at all since I have started so that's good.

    I read a few posts on here before I joined and really feel inspired and feel that this will help me on my journey to finally becoming myself again-the good old days when I was a size 12 lol. Thanks for reading-I hope I didn't drivell too much. Zoe xx :)

    Welcome Zoe. I was the same with other diets. Each time I lost interest before I got to goal.

    Losses are quick with CD so it really keeps the motivation up.

    Enjoy that great feeling :)

    Also a newbie

    Hi Zoe, I'm a newbie too, I started yesterday and I had a headache last night and ended up getting up at 4am this morning to take pain killers.:p
    Don't feel embarrassed about how much you have to lose, I’ve got 164lb (11 stone 10lb) to lose half my body weight and i am determined to do it.:rolleyes:
    This is a great site and looking at the before and after photos is very inspiring.;)

    Welcome Zoe :wavey:

    Don't feel embarrassed about how much 'shrinking' you need to do the main thing is you've made a start and that's the hardest step :D when I started I needed to 'shrink' by 10st 6lbs and in 4mths I've lost 62lbs ;)

    Hi louie, My goal weight is 146lb (10st6lb) as it just gives me a healthy bmi for my height (i'm 5'4"). I have only done shakes this week but was going to try the soups next week-are they not very nice? The Choc orange shake and strawberry is my fav. Let me know how you get on on Monday x

    Welcome to CD Zoe, it is a great diet to do and you can get very good results on it. It is certainly the best diet I have ever done. I was the same as you - I wanted to remove food as an option to give myself a chance and I am finding that so far it is working a treat.

    Good luck with your journey.

    shakes v soups

    Hi Zoe only had 2 of the soups chicken and mushroom which was not to bad, but had the vegetable today and it took me ages to drink it cus it was horrible.:jelous:
    The toffee and walnut shake is nice too. :rolleyes:
    The porridge isn't bad and it's something other than a drink, at least you can use a spoon.

    My husband is going to join on Monday too, so I will only have my son to cook for, they have just eaten their dinner sitting by me and it smelt great but I didn't even bat an eye lid, I feel more positive this time than on past diets.

    let me know to how you go on. x

    Good luck Zoe, stick to CD and it will work wonders for you. I'm on day 4, my wi is Saturday.

    Keep an open mind about the soups - try each one once and see what you think. Everyone has different tastes...

    Cravings

    Hi everyone,
    Do the food cravings go away after the first week, at night when I’m sitting down i start fancying different foods, I’m going to bed early just to avoid it.:(

    My husband starts CD on Tuesday with me so it might help, it must like the withdrawal symptoms’ that smokers have.:break_diet:
    Hope it gets less. x

    I find it easier to just concentrate on something else, come on here and read a post or two, or tidy up etc just to take my mind off it.

    Good luck :)
