    Hi Guys,

    Well, after losing almost 4 stone on CD, I have decided it's time to put food back into my life. CD maintenance program is very difficult to follow and really unsociable (at least when your not eating, you can get by).
    I went away for the weekend and found myself following the slimming world red plan, so decided it was time to switch.
    I don't expect to lose much in my first few weeks, as I haven't had food for 14 weeks, but at least once my body gets used to healthy eating, it will slowly come off and stay off (hopefully).

    Has anyone got any advise for me to get started?

    I joined my local Slimming World group last night.

    good luck with your switch.....I did work up the plans on CD although didn't really do 1500 for more than a couple of days.I find I can maintain very successfully following basic red days rules of Slimming world(I did lose some weight on SW a few years ago)

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for all your replies.
    Toothfairy, maybe we can make the journey together and swap notes. So far I feel great on slimming world. After 14 weeks of virtually no food, I feel like I am in heaven.
    I had a red day yesterday and green today, I feel a bit bloated today so gonna stick to red days for a while.
    I do want to say though, that without CD I wouldn't be where I am now. My councillor was great and understood why I swapped. She too feels that the maintenance plan is difficult on CD. We are still gonna keep in touch, she even gave me a refund for the packets I had left over.

    Anyway, thats me for now.

    Catch up soon
