    Hello

    So i don't really know where to start haha, thought this would be good for when i'm struggling or just to have a rant on.

    I'm 21 and over the past 5 years i've put over 5 stone on. (Since being in a relationship, love eh!) I got back from Magaluf on Tuesday and decided enough is enough and I have to do something about my weight. Seeing everyone wondering around in next to nothing really made me wanna change and enjoy my youth! I wanna be able to shop in normal shops instead of having to order everything off asos curve, and be able to wear a t-shirt without having to have something over it to cover my hideous huge arms!!

    I've always struggled with my weight but it's time to do something about it and start to like myself again! So today, I started CD. Lets do this! Bye fat.

    :) x

    Hello Holly

    I am the same, although I am older then you. I did Cambridge a few years ago and lost 39lbs, but I have put it all back on plus more :sigh:. I look terrible. I am starting back on Cambridge the week after next and I HAVE to do this. I have always been overweight and it was great being able to buy clothes in a size 12, and even some of those would hang off me but not anymore!! What have you started on? How have you found your first day?
    Good luck with it

    I totally agree with you when you say its all in the mind. The first few days are the worse, but once that passes your body gets used to not having food. You must make sure you drink loads of water, that is the key - Looooooaaaaads of water! In my first week when I started years ago I lost 9lbs. I couldn't believe it. Because of health reasons, i couldn't start on ss. I can't remember how many shakes I had a day but I also had the low cal meal and still managed to loose. See the results at your first weigh in and that will encourage you so much and all the compliments that come with it. Maybe we could support each other :) .

    Hi Jenna!

    Drink lots and lots of water and keep yourself distracted, that helps me feel fuller and takes my mind of it. I'm on day 4 now 100% so fair and it is getting easier i suppose, most of it is in your mind. When i wanna eat i remember why i'm doing it! Try spreading your shakes out a bit more tomorrow? I normally have one around 10/11 the other 3ish and my final one around 6/7. If you do really need to eat though pick something that wont effect you getting into ketosis, my consultant suggested tuna (in water or brine), eggs and iceberg lettuce. Try keep it simple or you'll be tempted to stuff your face :)

    Thanks for replying holly! Every time I think I'm hungry I log on here and read everyone's stories! Found it hard doing the kiddies their teas, usually I'd be picking at the left overs but proudly scrapped them in the bin. I just want next Monday to be here to make it worth it x
    your all such an inspiration x

    Well done ladies! You're all on the right track with a positive mental attitude....that's half the battle! You can all do it, and it does get easier...the hunger side of things tapers off after 4/5 days (although at days 9,10 and 11 I suddenly became ravenous again!) after that it's just a mental battle.....social situations, battling the comfort eating scenarios that sort of thing!

    Hello Jen
    How did you're first day go? Did you manage to resist the temptation to eat? I know its really hard, the first 3/4 days are the hardest and I dread them when I start next week. The gallons of water I can deal with as I drink loads everyday anyway. Its the other joys I'm not too keen on. But we must think of the results in the long run.
    Good luck

    Hi scooby!
    not gonna lie, yesterday was a killer but I stuck to it so feeling rather proud of myself. Think it was harder because I was of work but today I am at work so think its gonna be a little easier. I too like water so finding that part easier but the constant toilet trips annoying. Finding all the questions about the diet from other people hard to answer but just keep saying let me get on with it and see the results.
    couldnt resist jumping on the scales this morning, lost 3lb, not sure weather to believe it or not but it has spurred me on.
    how long have you been on CD for ?
    Loving these forums, they really are helping me so much x

    Hello

    Now... wouldn't you like it to be a nice surprise when you go for your first weigh in? I haven't started Cambridge yet but I wont be weighing myself until my weigh in day. I was horrified when I weighed myself the other day :cry:. What a shocker!!! Well done for getting through yesterday. I am the same as you, if I'm at work I'm ok but when I'm at home that is the hardest thing. I just want to get started now.
