    Hi Everybody!

    As my title says, I'm new to this forum and to CD. I have been thinking about it for ages but didn't get round to doing anything about it. Then my son, who successfully lost 6 stone on CD a couple of years ago, started talking to me about it, recommended me to this site and found the name and phone number of my nearest CDC!

    I couldn't let him - or myself - down, so I rang her and went to see her last Thursday. As my BMI is over 30 I have to get the form signed by my doctor - which is scheduled for Monday afternoon - then I hope to be starting on SS on Tuesday morning.

    I am excited and motivated but a little apprehensive. I know I will appreciate all the support I shall get from you all on here as I have been avidly reading the posts.

    Once I get going on Tuesday, I will let you know how I am getting on!

    Welcome 'grandma'

    Just wondering. Has your CDC talked to you about 'prepping' ie cutting carbs before?

    It isn't essential, but it does make the first few days easier. I know you don't have long now before you start, and you may have a last supper planned;) but I just thought I'd mention it.

    Very best of luck :)

    Welcome Grandma!! KDs advice is really good, I cut down carbs 2 days before and I didn't feel hungry in the first couple of days of SSing.

    No, she hadn't, but my son, who has been very successful with CD told me about it so I have tried to cut back - not sure how successful I have been though! No last supper planned definitely! Due to my life style, the regime of 3 'eating' times a day will suit me better and I have been trying for several weeks to drink loads of water every day. In my mind I am ready - just the small problem of getting through to a doctor tomorrow! I have been advised by the receptionist at the surgery to go to a particular doctor as the other is very unsympathetic to CD and likely to refuse to sign the form!

    I just want to get on with it now - I'm ready!

    Remember that you aren't asking for permission to do the diet, just that there is nothing contraindicated.

    Best of luck with it.

    Well, I saw the doctor tonight who is very pleased for me to start.

    So I start tomorrow morning!

    I just want to get on with it - but now the time has come I am even more apprehensive. I know I need to do it - and I so want to be successful.

    I'll let you know how its going!

    Thank you for your support and encouragement.

    I am now half way through Day 1. I left for work at 7am so didn't have anything except my customary pint of cold water. During the morning I drank one black coffee and three large glasses of cold water. In the car on the way home I drank a 500ml bottle of water. BUT I didn't touch the biscuits that the person I was assessing had left in the room for me!! I feel very strong at the moment.

    I am just off for my first shake. I think it will have to be chocolate of some kind as that will be my favourite. Then a soup tonight - anybody give me an idea of what the tomato one is like? Then I can have another shake later when I get the evening nibble feeling. Fortunately I have loads of work to do this afternoon so I shall be away from tempatation stuck in my office with only a 2 litre bottle of water and a computer for company!!
