    Hi everyone.

    Just want to introduce myself, I'm starting the Cambridge tomorrow, could really do with some support. I weighed in today at 15 stone 3.5lbs, been heavier though in the past and can't blame my weight on pregnancies. Hoping to lose at least 4 stone on this if I can. I'm 36 and have two toddlers at home.

    I tried the Lipotrim last year for a week, I never got beyond the tiredness after the week and couldnt take it much longer, especially running around after my smallies.

    I am feeling very positive this time and really hoping it works.

    Thanks for reading, looking forwarding to getting to know you.

    Welcome, Mum! I hope you will enjoy CD and that you will soon be enjoying the benefits of weight loss.

    I started nearly three weeks ago. After the initial couple of days - which are hard - I got into the swing of it all. I haven't cheated once and I feel really great! I have loads of energy, my eyes are brighter, my hair is silky and my skin is moisturised.

    This is a brilliant forum to visit as the support on here is second to none! When you are happy and successful, everybody celebrates with you. When you are down, everybody encourages and supports you.

    I'm so glad i got started and that I joined this forum. I am sure you will be too!

    All the best for you start tomorrow!

    Hi Welcome, you can do it. Remember to drink lots of water, and warm up with herbal leaf teas, and you can even have your shakes hot. Some people divide the shakes 3 into 6 so they have something more often. Lots of luck

    Get through the first 5 days or so and the tiredness does go.

    I am on Week 30 having lost nearly 8 stones.

    Good luck on your journey x

    Hi Mum, good luck with the CD :D don't forget the water, I feel ghastly if I don't drink my 4 litres a day but bouncing around all over when I've had plenty of water to drink :D I started 3 1/2 weeks ago at 15st1lb so nearly the same as you, I weighed in at 13st12lb this week :party0011: Good luck and stay strong, once the first few days have passed you'll be feeling great!

    Morning everyone. Crikey, I really didnt expect to log on today and see so many replies. I am really touched. Thanks for the tips (didnt think of the likes of splitting the shakes).. just looking at some of your weight losses it really is inspiring. It is almost too good to be true!

    I have a couple of quick questions; 1. On LT I was allowed to use Listerine Breath strips, can I use them on CD? Also, can you drink espresso?

    Thanks again for the lovely welcomes. Looking forward to grabbing a chance later to have a good old nosey around the site and particular the individual stories.

    Hi mum, I am a mum of 1 boy!! welcome to CD and you will have a fantastic journey, try to keep to it 100% and don't let anything sway you. You can have listerine strips, I use them. I am on day 3 at the moment, so am still hungry but trying to drink at least 4 litres of water. I use a tetra brick and divide it up into coffees throughout the day. If you feel a bit sicky with any of the shakes, try splitting them in half (20g) and put a bit more water in them.

    Good luck with your direct journey (we are not going sight seeing!!)...

    Love

    Hi Mum, welcome to CD. I am a mum of 3. I had my week 5 weigh in this morning. I was a bit worried as it was also add a meal week. I lost another 4 lbs so Yay me!
    I couldn't have done it without minimins. I don't post much but read all the hints and tips, recipies etc. I try to drink at least 3 litres of water a day but usually manage 4. I like making porridge with the psyllium husks. I like to microwave half a soup into a popadom.
    I'm always inspired by the stories and pics on here ( porgeous is my heroine) check her out, that'll be me shortly.
    Good luck, keep going, keep reading minimns. You can do it.
