I have to share this...

I just have to share this with you lot this morning, as I am truly on cloud nine.

When going to bed last night I had my familiar routine of laying out clothes for work today. I included a pair of trousers which I bought after my first two weeks on CD when I'd lost 13lbs, and they fitted just nicely. I haven't had any massive losses since then but have been trundling along at a steady sort of pace.

So this morning I get up and get dressed, to find I literally cannot wear them! They are so loose around my stomach that I can pull them up and down without even undoing the buttons. I can't get over it. It's as though someone has sneaked in during the night and swapped them over with a much bigger pair. I was wearing them just the other week and they fitted nice and snug. Now they're so baggy around the ar*e that I can't get away with wearing them to the office at all.

Of course this means that I am left with hardly any clothes to wear to work - and these were lovely tailored pin-stripes that I really liked too - but I really don't care. I'm so chuffed that I'm even more enthused than ever about this diet.

I started a size 18 on the bottom, just over a month ago. Those trousers today were a 16. And I guess I might have to try some 14s now...

This Thursday will be my 5th weigh-in. Who would have thought that I could undergo such a dramatic transformation in just over a month?

So for anyone struggling through their first three days on the diet - keep with it. I have been on every diet known to man but never have I seen such amazing results, so fast.

Before I began on CD I was miserable with low-confidence and full of self-loathing. I was jealous of my friends and workmates and their great figures and wardrobes. I was fed up of being the fat friend. But losing the weight seemed to me a massive journey that would take me years.

Now I'm starting to see that in a few more months, I could be slim, healthy and happy too. I'm delighted I found this diet now - it is changing my life. :D

Im just like broxi, i cant wait for the feeling!

I started last Friday, jumped on the scales today and I just could not believe it. Maybe my scales and the CDC scales are out of sync - I dont know... Still an amazing feeling to know the amount of pounds that have gone in just 3 days. Its awesome!!

If the rest of the losses are half this amount I am going to be ecstatic! I am going to keep going til weigh in Thursday and see what the CDCs scales say.

:)

Thanks for posting this, it really gives me something to look forward to (having to go to work with no trousers ;))

Congrats Memphis :cool:

Thank you for all your lovely responses. I just had to share it with someone as I'm kind of 'playing down' the diet in real life! You know, playing it cool :rolleyes:

wow Memphis that is such a great story! Well done!! I am going to be starting very soon - and you have inspired me to take a whole loads of clothes back I brought last weekend!!
I did swap one dress from an 18 to a 16, so a goal I am going to make for myself is to fit into that dress!!
Well done!

How thrilling, enjoy shopping for your size 14's but don't spend too much on them as you'll soon be in 12's! I can't wait for this to happen to me. My size 18's are loose on me, I've had to tighten my belt. Can fit in 16 tops.
