    Hi to everyone, my name is Louise I am really keen to get started. I have my first apt with a cdc on thursday. I'm nervous but really excited. I have about 7 stone to lose and would like it off as quickly as possible. I've been reading this site for ages deciding whether to try cambridge. I'd love to hear any words of wisdom or tips!
    I'm going away in September and would love to be noticably slimmer by then, I know I won't be slim but even to drop a dress size would be great. I'm currently a dress size 24.
    Hope to get to know you better over the coming months.xxx.

    Hi Louise and welcome to minimins,

    You sound so excited which is great and I wish you all the luck in the world.

    I'm doing Lighter Life which is similar to CD and I had 8 stone to lose on May 1st. Now I have over 3 stone gone which I'm really pleased about.

    In 2 months you'll certainly be down a size which will make you feel just great.

    GOOD LUCK XX

    Hello Louise - and WELCOME to Minimins :D

    The weight'll fall off you in no time - typical losses on CD are 1 stone per month :eek: so you will definitely be noticeably slimmer by September !!!

    Good luck - and keep us posted with your progress !

    love

    Debz xx

    Hi Louise

    First of all, welcome to Minimins!

    I was a size 24 (sometimes even size 26 :() when I started CD in February 2006 and got to my target weight by December 2006. In that time I lost just over 8 stone - so it really CAN be done!

    Good luck and keep us posted how you get on :)

    hi louise......thought I'd add another good luck to your list :D
    I'm excited and scared both at the same time. Going by what our fellow slimmers say we should see a huge weight loss rather quickly and I'm hoping that that is enough to keep us motivated. I'm totally new to this site (couple of days) so I'm just trying to read a few threads to get the feel of it. I'll be thinking of you on Thursday. x good luck x

    Morning Louise and Rachel

    Well done you two on picking the very bestest diet ever !!!

    I have now lost 6 stone, although not easy the weight drops off so quick that you feel really really brilliant

    Drink till you can drink no more, do not cheat or nibble a tiny bit of food as it makes you really really hungry, and trust your CDC she will save and change your life more than you would ever know

    Louise by September you should be a size 18 so go for it

    Good Luck and keep looking at the inspirational thread at the top of the page ~ its breathtaking the changes that some people have made

    Luv Luv
