    Hello all!

    Well after a year away I am back! So excited to start Cambridge Diet today, have a lot of weight to lose because I have had a baby!

    I am not sure if any of the CD'ers are around from when I was here before but Im quite used to cambridge diet and first did it in 2006, I love doing it and am so strict on it!

    Am 14 stone 4 today, hoping to get down to 11 stone for Christmas.

    Megan is 6 weeks old now, I am not BF and am fully recovered, I had the most amazing birth and had no complications, no stitches or anything so I am ready to get back on to the diet!

    My CDC advised I had a small meal per day too (like add a meal) but I am going to go the first week and see how I do, I get weighed on 4th Oct first weigh in.

    Nice to be back, hope everyone is well and doing good!

    Welcome back Lauren.
    Congratulations on your baby girl. Wow you certainly seem to have been blessed with a stress free birth.
    I feel we may all be coming to you for advice regarding CD as you seem very strong and mentally in the "zone".
    I look forward to reading all about your mahoosive losses each week.
    Take care

    Thank you Dolly2!

    I will never go on the diet unless I have prepared my mind for it, I set a date (have been thinking about today for the last 10 days or so) and dive in from there! I by no means find it easy, but the pain and misery I feel looking in the mirror at my fat thighs and dimply bum makes me think how much more important it is to be slim than cheat on this diet!

    I hope that it is not too hard to do this and run around after Megan, but I can only try.

    I will be happy to chat and try and give advice, I really enjoy the diet and love how I feel so detoxed.

    Hi Lauren, congratulations on your beautiful baby girl x Just to say good luck starting back on CD. i totally know what you mean when you say you have to get in the 'zone' for this diet as it really is ALL or NOTHING for me aswell. i am starting again tomorrow, 3rd time round to get to goal and i am getting my mind ready for it as CD isnt easy in the 1st week at all so i have been preparing myself for whats ahead. Its strange but i am looking forward to the detox part of it and the good feeling of being in control...for once.

    Good luck on your journey x x

    Thank you Mini.

    My enthusiasm! I dont know where its come from today, I suppose I'm still elated about my gorgeous baby girl plus the thoughts of getting back into my skinny jeans at Christmas is enough to make me smile!

    Maintenance - well last year I started up the gym and just watched what I ate, beween 2nd November and 17th December I stayed around 11stone/11stone 2 but by then I was 8 weeks pregnant (remember what I weighed at my 8 week apt) so I didnt do too bad. Just all went out the window in my pregnancy!

    Inbetween the other stints, I wasnt so good, I was very complacent and ended up putting the weight back on which is why last year I started at the gym and had smaller portion sizes, it seemed to work for the while I was doing it. I really need to exercise, its the only thing that really keeps my weight down after cambridge, it just motivating myself as I hate it!

    At the moment, I must add, I am in size 18 next jeans, I tried on size 20 (shock!!) jeans in M&S and they fit snug...I didnt buy them though, even though as my Mum says "its only a number!" I hate wearing the size 18s and I know I will look back and think I look mahoosive!

    It is all definately worth it though, when I look at my baby girl x

    Lauren - congratulations on your gorgeous baby. She looks beautiful.

    But, um...

    I didn't think you were allowed to do the Cambridge Diet (certainly not SS anyway) until your baby's 3 months old. Has your doctor agreed that this is okay? Forgive me for poking my oar in and I know you said you felt great - but I'm kind of worried for you. This diet's hard enough at the best of times, let alone with a 7 week old baby.

    Just wanted to, well... make sure you stay fit and well.

    Hi Lily

    I never replied to your message, apologies.

    I didnt complete it anyway - I lasted 3 days and just had enough, so you're right that I wasnt ready - and my body told me that. It was hard and I just decided to wait.

    6 months on, and I'm ready again! Thank you for your concern and I never even knew you had to wait 3 months! xxxx

    When are you going to get started - or have you already? :D
