In the beginning... inspired by the ICE MOOSE

I know that you are on here a lot Ice Moose... but I publically want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for inspiring me with your blog...

I was searching aroung google looking to be inspired to lose weight... and after a few days of reading and coming back to your blog I read it all.. from start to finish!

So... here I am... someone who loves food... about to take the step to changing the rest of my life. I begin the diet on Wednesday- for now I am cutting back my carbs as requested. :eek:

Feel free for all new people to msn me if you're wanting to share your journey.. truimphs and tribulations... just need someone to support and congratulate you that is going through the same thing.

Gone, but who cares huh
it was mikes blog that inspired me to do this diet, i read how he coped with it and i thought well it doesnt sound so bad, and i show his blog to anyone who expresses an interest, and when i need an answer to a question i go look at his blog tosee if he has covered it, and usually the answer is there, i dont know if he realises he is in a lot of peoples favourite list lol, i will always be grateful to him for writing it, as its helped me so many times, i was actually going to om him and tell him this, but i thought i better not he might think im a weirdo lol, so this thread is for me an excellent oppurtunity to express how i felt, thanks again mike,

Mike's blog was also my inspiration for starting CD in February - I read it from start to finish and thought "wow, this could actually work".

7 months later, I'm now 10 stone lighter.......

So Mike, a huge thanks :D

The Diet Guy
Thanks everyone!!

But the magic is in you I promise!!

Bonkers diet but it works!

Mike's blog really inspired me to be on Cambridge Diet. Whenever I feel down and my willpower is getting weak, I always check out his blogsite for encouragement and it brings me back on track all the time.

Thank you for being an inspiration to all of us who have weight problems.
