    Hi everybody!

    That's it, I am joining the CD family after 4 weeks of healthy eating :D

    I have lost a stone in a month with healthy eating, with a huge loss at the start and a very small one this week. I think my body is getting used to eating normally. At this rate, I will lose 2 stones a year :rolleyes:

    Because I need to lose weight quickly, I decided that CD was the diet for me. I have been thinking over it for a week now, so it is not a hasty decision.:p

    I have an appointment with my local CDC tomorrow morning. I realised that if I don't try, I will always regret it! :D

    Hi Elie, welcome on board! You've done brilliantly so far with your weight loss. I know you have probably cut down your carbs in the past few weeks, but it will help when you start CD if you do. I did for a couple of days before I started and didn't feel hungry the first few days, which helped get me to ketosis. All the best!!

    Thanks Bobbin and mandye!

    Yes, I have avoided carbs i the past 4 weeks, but not completely though :eek: Still much better than before :D

    I intend to do CD SS/790 until I reach a BMI of 30/28, and then start going up the ladder, as I want to be able to exercise and tone my body :p I amy even stop before if I am happy with my figure, and go up the different plans :D

    AND I intend to follow the maitenance plans religiously :D

    I need to try or I will always regret it once it is summer and I can't enjoy myself because of my weight/fat/aches, etc. :D

    Elie

    PS: I don't need my GP's approval, but I hope he will be supportive, as I would like him to monitore me from time to time. And if he doesn't want then I plan on seeing a private GP.

    Hi Vickchick!

    Thanks for your replies!:D

    We can start together then! Well, I need to wait tomorrow myself but eh, what is a day in a lifetime?:rolleyes:

    How much do you have to lose? I have about 7 st to reach my ideal weight (according to my GP), but I'd be happy if 5st had gone by august.

    Hi Elie

    Thanks Meltdown :D

    I lost a lot the 1st 2 weeks, as my body was taken aback by the lack of junk food :rolleyes:

    I am so glad I found this website. People on here are an inspiration, and I have received help everytime I needed it :D

    Only downside, I spend far too much time on here, it is so addictive :eek::p

    Welcome to CD! I started 12 days ago and I am actually enjoying it! I lost 12lbs in my first week. I am aiming to lose 4stone by the end of May - and then another 2stone by end of July - but hopefully it will come off quicker than that as I have 12 stone to lose!! You seem determined to do it, so, in that frame of mind, I'm sure you will be successful.

    Awww, thanks girls :D

    You are all so nice. it never ceases to amaze me how supportive people are.

    I will definitely keep you posted, and I can't wait to see the results either.

    I can at last see a glimmer of hope for my holidays. Everytime, I go to these very exotic places, and I can't enjoy myself because of weight. And let's be honest, there are activities I can't do :eek:

    People who have never been obese may not undersatnd but...I can't wait to be able to go up the stairs without being out of breath:rolleyes:

    Not long to wait now!:D

    Well, I am back :D and I am very happy :D

    My CDC is really lovely and easy to talk to (which I think is as important as anything else in this diet). We have agreed to a 1st target at 14st, which would mean I am overweight, and not obese anymore :D

    I am on 4 packs a day, due to my height, so it is a bit more expensive, but still managable :D

    I have already started, with a banana bliss shake. They are quite good. Of course, I wasn't expecting 4* cuisine :p

    I bought my ketostix, and my water, and my hand blender, I am ready :D

    I can't wait to see her next week to see how much I will have lost :eek:
