    Hi my name is louisa i am from milton keynes and 26. i am getting married on the 28th july 2007 and have ALOT to loose about 13st! HOWEVER i am not expecting miracles and at the moment have a target of 3stone when my fiance is going to give me £100 towards anything i like so i have chosen a bath as we have just moved into a new home and dont have one lol

    i am starting CD on sat after having my first appointment with my cdc on fri afternoon.

    i am a bit nervous but after reading through your threads it is FANTASTIC to know i will have all this support.

    i hardly drink anything so this week i have been preparing myself by drink at least 3litres of VERY weak juice as i hate water and had to take it a step down so i got use to it

    can someone tell me how many pints in a liter i have been told about 2 and a bit? we have pint glasses at home so i can determine how many liters by the amount of pints i drink also i have a 700ml flask for work how many of these should i be drinking per day?

    i look forward to all your support! feel free to IM me anytime!

    Hello and welcome Louisa

    S'right, just over 2 pints to a litre so you want to aim for at least 4 pints of water per day. Or, if you are using your flask aim for at least three of them per day.

    Good luck meeting your CDC, and we're with ya 110% for this journey

    :D

    Hi Louisa,

    I am on day 6 and I started at 13st 1lb. So not too far ahead of you.

    This is the second phase of my weight loss journey...I have already lost five stone and I hope to be around the nine stone for Christmas.

    It is good to break it up into mini goals and to reward yourself with little treats like magazines, books etc. as you go along.

    Be sure to measure yourself from the neck down and don't forget the upper arms as well as it does come off all over and sometimes the inches come off when you feel the weight is not going fast enough.

    Also I know for some this can be a difficult one but if you can have a photo taken now as this will show you how far you have travelled as time goes on.

    Love Mini xxx

    A litre of water is a pint and a quarter! I remember that from the rhymes taught to me at school when we went metric LMAO

    Good luck and welcome to the board :)

    Hi Louisa.

    I've been on CD a week now and it's going well, I'm sure it will for you. Read a few threads and you'll soon see what to expect in the early days. I now manage to drink 4 litres a day and like you hated water a week ago!

    Good luck.

    Hi Louisa,

    Welcome to the wonderful world of CD! I live just up the road from you, just off J15 of the M1. I'm coming up for almost 11months on CD and have lost nearly 11 and a half stone so your target is perfectly achievable - drink plenty of water - at least 4 pints a day and the weight will just drop off!

    Good luck for Friday - it will be tough but it's sooooo worth it!
    Lots of love,
    A

    I would love to lose about 6/7 stone, in an ideal world 8 stone would be flippin lovely :D

    Hi Louisa

    Good luck with starting your VCLD, the first week is the toughest. Your goals are brilliant incentives, just think by the time you get your new bath you will have a bit more room to have a splash around.
