    I'm all shiny and new to cambridge but been on minis for a long time now.

    Yup that means I've lost and gained :mad:

    Previously I did well on weight watchers pro points, lost 4 stone I think it was over 8 months or so.

    I decided to to cambridge this time for a boost as I'm fed up, annoyed and need to get a bulk of the weight off now. My longer term goal will be to go back to weight watchers for the final part of my weight loss and do the final bit slowly (maybe the last stone or two on there).

    So I had my meeting with my consultant today and starting in a week (have the product now).
    Already been drinking a ton more water, trying to limit the carbs, using up some slim fast I had left over from weight watchers (I used to point a shake as eating in the mornings was and still is an issue for me) to get more used to not feeling as full. I also kissed pringles and choc goodbye a few weeks ago, in fact before I even decided to go with this.
    Cutting way back on the coffee too since I'm not a fan of black coffee (but I will try this week to switch or do without).

    I have quite mixed feelings about this, I know the start will be just rubbish, however I'm pretty stubborn and I can't afford to waste money by cheating so I just need to get on with it.

    Luckily my neighbour is also doing the plan so we can keep each other going and do our own weigh ins every other week since we only see the consultant fortnightly due to travel distance.

    So anyway, hellos, I'm sure I'll be stalking this forum from here on in and getting to know you all better :)

    thanks for the support :D

    so far had my "blowout" on sat morning (pringles and aero - I'm such a badass right)

    daily water intake is about nailed already ready for saturday
    switched to black coffee without too much pain
    been shopping for a protein focused week
    ordered various products to combat some of the side effects (won't go into detail haha)
    and pretty much want to start it like NOW! No choice tho, won't see consultant to resupply :(

    im doing okay, decided yesterday to go 8am, 2pm and 8pm for my meals, only the last hour was a bit like omg feed me now. Messed that all up today by sleeping in till 10.30 (ooops).

    ran out of coffee last night (I know I need shot for that), so heads bumping but could be the lack of coffee causing it (I drink a lot). meh.

    I think I am at the point where I am so fed up with how things are now, my determination is super high and I will be fine, even if I'm having a bad day, I wont let it beat me. Plus why pay for the products if you get little benefit by jumping in an out of ketosis instead of staying in there.

    Found the leek and potato soup was blegh last night, I have another 4 of them here. going to try with pepper later on and water it down more. This week will be trial and error with products, I got a decent variety except with soups but will have to put up with it till friday when I next see my consultant.

    I had that issue, My consultant was really helpful and came midweek to swap the products I didn't like for ones I did like so I wasn't struggling to choke them down xx

    unfortunately shes too far away to pop over :/ only see her every 2 weeks but luckily I only am doing a week on plan before I see her (did a prep week).

    I'm really hoping my neighbour likes leek n potato as she cant stand strawberry shakes and I don't mind them. We can trade lol. Will be okay whatever way, I got a busy week on next week work wise (I work from home) and I can just down the soups and keep working :p

    Already thinking porridge will be my "evening meal" as I feel like I'm actually eating when I have a bowl and unless I like the tomato (I have one to try) Ill be on shakes for the other 2 meals.

    so I tried spicy tomato soup...I take it back, the leek and potato wasn't that bad...It's been a long time since I had something to eat that's made me physically want to vomit. Thank goodness for mouthwash to get rid of the taste ;)

    No soups left tho, my lovely neighbour loved them and traded me strawberry shakes for the remainder of mine :D

    so far not as bad as I thought it would be.

    few headaches and dizzy bits, having to stop myself going to the fridge on autopilot.

    I'm not physically hungry but my brain says I am. Stoopid brain :D
