    Hi all! I'm hoping to start the Cambridge diet as soon as possible, I'm really excited about it. I've tried other diets, whilst they do work initially, I lose motivation, especially when I need to think hard about wht I'm going to eat, how many syns/points etc I can have.

    CD is my last resort really. My main motivation is so I can start fertility treatment, anyone else in the same boat as me?

    Hi RuthG - I am in exactly the same boat as you.
    I have been referred to a consulatnt who wants me to reduce my BMI to more acceptable levels (under 40) before they will consider fertility treatment
    So this is also my last resort and I'm so pleased with the results so far - as is the doctor :)

    Hi Ruth!

    Good luck with CD, it's a great diet and it really works.. and fast!! I'm not losing weight for fertility treatment, but I've been ttc for 2 years now and I think being overweight is a major factor - So that's a big reason for me embarking on this CD adventure again (I've done it before)

    Good luck!!!! xxxx

    hiya ruth. just wanted to say best of luck to ya. I like you have done every diet known to man including lipotrim (which was vile) this is similar but waaaay tastier. Its really easy once you get going and have your mind set. keep busy and drink lots of water ;)

    Thanks for the fab welcome! I'm hoping that once I get passed the firdt few days that I'll be able to stick to it, I think that once I see the weight coming off rapidly, it'll be incentive enough to keep going, I hope!

    Wow, becky85, 23lbs in the first two weeks, that's take me about 3 months at least to lose on slimmimg world or weight watchers! Well done!

    Roosters and funellafox, it's nice to know I'm not the only with those reason for losing weight, we'll get there!

    Squishy, I'll keep an eye on your posts!

    Dobbie, thank you!

    Thanks Dragonfly!

    Thanks Camilla

    Hey RuthG,

    Just to wish you all the best with your journey....the diet does work its just about keeping yourself dedicated to it. I go through some really low points but I always have the picture in my head of what I want to look like and how I want to feel and then I dont want to stop.

    We'll all get there!!!

    Hi there.. I did a prep last week and cut down on my carbs and actually lost 2lbs!!!

    This did not deter me from the plan though as I really need to be on it.. and then train my body to eat sensibly... IT WILL WORK!!!:girlpower:

    Just wishing you both lots of luck. I have re-started this week after a 2 and a bit year break ( and the humiliation of coming back after losing the weight in the first place).

    Just take it day by day and you'll get there. When having a moment of weakness, just keep yourself occupied or drink lots of water and the call of the loo will keep you busy peeing. ha ha

    Good luck and keep posting and join in the challenges they are a great way of keeping you focused.

    Good luck
