I am doing this!

Hi every one

I started my Cambridge diet on Thursday 26 th May 2022.

I did exante few years back.
Tried it again but had tummy issues with them.

So now I am on day 4 of my Cambridge diet.
I have to say I am super excited at the thought of loosing my weight.

so what’s brought me back to dieting …. Well I am going to be 50 in October and we have a hot holiday booked.
I don’t want to be fat and 50… I want to be fab at 50.
I currently weigh 16 stone and 6lbs.( start day weight.

so my plan is to be on plan go on my holls then get back on it when I am home,
Hopefully reaching target in December or Jan but if it take longer it takes longer.

I have brought products of line( eBay)
As all consultants are looking around £70-£80 a week. And I’m managing to buy products around the £50 mark for 21 products. I have also ordered the booklet but got all the information from people have done it that I know. I am using the drinks powders. And only products at the moment.

so to help keep me on my path I have decided to keep a on line journal.

I have to say the product from Cambridge are far superior to the exante ones and no funny tummys.

today the coldness hit and I am actually wearing winter clothes and fluffy socks .

the first few days where not as bad as I thought they would be no carb flu or any thing.

I get a little hungry around product time but one I have had them I am fine.

I love the salted Carmel bites, golden syrup porridge, apple and cinnamon porridge .
Spag bol and chicken curry are lovely also.

I have ordered my self smaller clothes to get in to for my holiday( yes I am being brave and determined ).
Also have stick a photo on the fridge of fat me a few years ago( I was even heavier that I am now like 2 stone more than now).

so if you need a buddy then let me know as I think it helps .

post again tomorrow evening .

stay strong and keep fighting the fat💪🏻🌈🙏🏻

Day Five

I didn’t do a self weight in today.
It’s been a great day.
I had porridge, my first fruit n nut bar. This was absolutely delicious.
Very filling and a satisfying chocolate coating.
Tonight I had the curry and 80 grams Cucumber.

I have not be able to have a poo for a couple of days so added that in from the approved food list.

I really don’t want to add the protein element of food .

I have ordered some TDR products so I can hopefully have a good loss in the coming weeks.

I have felt a bit light headed and tired today.

when I walked the dog on a short walk this morning my muscles in my thighs felt odd. I guess that’s because of the lack of food.
My husbands been doing the night time walk as I just felt to tired.

I am completely obsessed with this diet and watching vlogs on u tube.
Looking for before and after photos and stories online.

I don’t even want to cheat.
I can’t wait to be lighter.

I have told a couple of people I am doing this diet.
I recommend any one to give this ago who wants to lose weight.
May be your thinking no way I could not do that, but let me tell you not having to think about food and logging it all.
Plus the products I have had are really good compared to other meal replacements

right that’s me for today.
I will post again tomorrow night.

Stay strong and keep fighting the fat🌈👌🏻💪🏻
Day six

today I have got up with the hump.
Nothing to do with the diet.
I didn’t have my first product till 2 today.
I have next to no appetite today.
I have come on.
I had my second product at 7-30 pm.
I had a shake as that’s easy to get down my neck.
I have a sore throat and feel rubbish.

I am planning on have the Carmel bits with my coffee in about half hours time.
So I am going to do my weight in tomorrow.
I did manage to go to the toilet for a number two , so that’s a massive relief for me.

products to day fruit n nut bar, chocolate shake, Carmel bits.

Will post tomorrow.

stay strong and fight the fat 💪🏻🙏🏻🌈
Day seven weigh in day
I have gone from 16 stone6/2lbs to 15 stone10 1/2lbs.

super pleased with this loss.
I can’t quite believe I managed to stick to it if I am honest.
How ever I am in it and managing to stick to it.

not this week but may be next I may go to TDR product these are lower in calories.
I am desperate to get this done as soon as I can.
my husband was so pleased for me

I have had salted Carmel bites
Spag bol and going to have a shake shortly

I will post again tomorrow
Keep fighting the fat 💪🏻🙏🏻🌈
Day 8

I have decided to move to my TDR Cambridge products.
These are lower in calories than standard product.

I had no idea how this was going to go but let me tell you . TDR is not for the faint hearted . It is hard core.
I have been freezing all day. Husband and son in short and t shirt. I have been in legging. Fluffy socks a t shirt and jumper all day.

took the dog for a walk this morning. So I got some exercise in.I think it’s important to move if only for 40 mins or so.

so just had my final product a boy do I feel tired.

I am feeling a little light headed . I am not sure how long I can maintain TDR but would like to do few weeks on this get it do was quickly as possible.

wow the old Cambridge was TDR it’s very low calories 450 I believe. I take my hat of to people that followed that low plan for any amount of time

any way I am still obsessed with looking at Cambridge vloggs , story’s ect.

So I will post tomorrow
Keep fighting the fat 💪🏻🌈🙏🏻

Day 9

I jumped on the scales this morning nd nearly cried it said plus 1lb. WTAF….. I am assuming it’s TOTM water because it’s not food.

I am have 3 TDR shakes a day. The last to shakes I made with cold coffee and made it with more water.

1 vegetable water
A Coke Zero
Loads of water with Cambridge water flavour.

I have been feeling light headed again today.
walked the dog this morning .
I have been busy this morning doing bits and pieces around the house.
My keto sticks came about 2 pm today so I hurried of to the loo hoping the pee stick turns pink……… yes , yes , yes definitely in ketosis now…. And all of a sudden I felt much better about ever thing.

this means I will loss the weight quicker hopefully.
It’s got to go .
People say trust in the process…. Well let me tell you I am praying for the process…. If I can get this done quickly I will be one happy girl for sure.

yes I know ever one wants it done quickly, why oh why did I ever let myself put on so much weight🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️.
This has got to be the last time I can’t do this again in a few years time.
So now I am thinking about long term plans.
How am I going to keep the weight off once I get to where I want to be?
In my mind now…. I think going forward chocolates, cakes, biscuits, crisps they have all got to stay out my life not just for a little while, for every !
What’s more important taste or maintained weight loss…. I need to sort this out now my plan that is. So that’s what I am going to be doing…sorting it out or at least thinking about it. This is going to take some time both losing it and planning for the future.

Right well I am going to say good night and I will be posting again tomorrow .
Stay strong keep fighting the fat.💪🏻🙏🏻🌈

I have decided not to get on the scales.
Today I feel terrible.

Day 13 Tue

so I had the strawberry and cherry smoothie today amazing flavour really enjoyed it. Fruit n nut bar for lunch . Coke Zero and tuna salad from the allowed food list.
I might not have another product I am not sure yet but I have stuck to my diet and I feel so so happy.

I also have not stepped on the scales which is massive thing for me.

I am still getting periods of light headedness.
