    Hi all,thought I would do a diary as it will be interesting for me to see how my weight loss journey goes and also hopefully for anyone else who may read it!

    I am a 47 menopausal women who has always struggled with her weight.Im now 16st 7lbs,just 2lbs short of my heaviest weight and am starting the Cambridge diet.I have had a lot of emotional issues these last few years but now is the time to knuckle down and get myself sorted.

    I started CD on Weds 2/1/08 but I was bad on Friday 4th! I have got into a habit of getting up at night-because of hot flushes(!) and eating.I did this on Friday,was most angry with myself but am back on today,I know its a bit selfish but Im hoping doing this diary will help me keep on the staright and narrow.

    I need to lose this weight for health reasons-last summer my bp was 180/130(now on medication) and as my brother had a fatal brain heomorhage at the age of 40 3 yrs ago its very important i keep it down and obviously losing weight will help.Also I snore like a wild animal and therfore losing weight will probably be good for my marriage!
    Just want to say good luck to all,Im really interested in how you are all doing too,this website is so supportive.

    Hope you are all ok.

    Hi jacci,

    Well done for getting one day done and dusted!!!

    The first few days are the most difficult and once you go into ketosis the diet does become so much easier.

    You will find also that when you are in ketosis your hot flushes will be greatly reduced and as the weight comes off you may not snore as much either.

    I think it is a good ego boost to have some new clothes and look your best as your losing weight. As you say, you can sell them on Ebay later on!

    I hope you have some before photos done and your body measurements as it is good to have a record of your progress.

    Your half way now through day 2!

    Love Mini xxx

    One of the side effects of being on a vlcd is the cold and when your going through the menopause this is a bonus.

    Body measurements are good to have from the start as some weeks you may not lose any weight, but you may find that is the week you come down in inches...Every little helps to keep motivated:)



    If you go back into your signature and put the cursor over the old ticker and click delete you will get rid of it from your signature.
