I am going to start CD!

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
I've seen my CDC and this is day 1 of my diet. I've a long journey, but I feel I can do it. You've done really well with your weight loss so far.

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

Hi Ellie, welcome and congratulations for making the decision to start CD. You seem to have thought it over, I'm sure with your attitude you'll have no problems and will be at goal before you know it x

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:
