Hi, first day on CD SS so just wanted to say hello!


Having had my eye on this forum for a while now and watched all of your inspiring weight losses..... I've finally decided to join you all on CD, so just wanted to say hello really! :) I've got about 3.5-4 stone to lose and have literally tried everything else going.....but this is my first time on CD.....I didn't even know it existed before a few months ago!

So here we go....Day 1 on SS.....I had a hot chocolate shake for breakfast......which was surprisingly (and unexpectedly!) nice and I'm on my 3rd pint of water so far.........so all in all I'm feeling great and I could not be more motivated!!! Every time I think about how it will feel to be slim, it makes me beam from ear to ear.....and for the first time in a while, I actually have faith that I will achieve it!

You are all doing so well and have really motivated me to do this, so keep up the good work.......if or actually no, when I succeed on CD and reach goal....I will have a lot to thank you all for......so if you are flaking just remember newbees like me who you have inspired to join you! Hopefully in a few months I can inspire someone too! :) :) :)

Please please please believe me when i say that the first time is your golden time. Stick to the plan, if you wobble then come and find a CDer on the forum as they will have experienced a wobble and cn help you through it.

Good luck :) xxx

Welcome and good luck with your CD journey! xx
Thanks! :)

Funny you should say that blue_grapefruit, but I always felt that way with weight watchers......the first time I did it I did brilliantly, but I'd fall off the wagon, get back on, fall off etc etc and every time it got harder and harder and I only wished I could have gone back to the first time and just seen it through! So I will absolutely take your advice and use this as my chance to go back to that 'first time'......so really appreciate you mentioning it!

Best of luck to you both too! :)

The reason i mention it is cos i would have been at goal months ago if i had stuck to it - tres annoying!

Never mind eh, will get to goal this time :) xxxxxxxxxx

It's my first day too.

You are doing better than me.

Only had a few sips of the chocolate mint shake this morning, although due to lump bits (thanks all for your advice, will def get a hand blender!).

Got Vegtable soup for lunch, wonder what that's going to taste like!

I need to loose 3 stone to get to my own 12 stone target (my Daughter is 2 and i did lose the baby weight but over the past few years it's all gone back on) although hope I can loose a bit extra!

Hi Emma,

Your lumpy shake must be down to the lack of blending as mine wasn't lumpy at all.....it actually surprised me how nice it was....I had mine hot too which probably helped with disolving it... But i know what you mean because a few years ago I decided to do slim fast and made up a shake and it was horrific and lumpy.....I never gave it another chance because I knew I could never stomach it like that, it went straight in the bin......yet actually thinking about it, it was probably all in the way I made it! Your next one is bound to be a massive improvement! Best of luck!!

Thanks to everyone for being so welcoming! :)

Hi Kimba

I am on day 3 and getting on OK so far. On my own scales I'm down 4 1/2 so far so that is spurring me on. I have about 3.5-4 stone to lose too so we are in the same boat.

Good luck with your weightloss. It'll be soooo worth it!!
