    Hello All!

    Thought I would start my own diary, have been browsing this site for months debating whether or not I would give Cambridge a go - turns out you have all motivated me into making an appointment :D

    I have my first meeting on Wednesday, I will be starting it on Friday 1st Feb as I have a fully booked social day Thursday.

    I have a girly holiday to Tunisia booked for 26th June, hoping to have lost all the weight by then or at least 4 stone of it.

    I'm definitely an emotional eater - have had a really traumatic year at home and in my personal life and I let myself go and literally spiralled out of control with eating and drinking :sigh:

    So 2013 is going to be MY year and I wanna look friggin HOT on holiday :p

    Will keep you posted on my progress! Any tips/advice muchoo appreciated!

    Katie :) x x

    Welcome Katie and good luck for your start on 1st Feb x

    I think you can't excersise for the first 2 weeks but after that it's ok? I would speak to your consultant or look on website to confirm x

    Hello Katie

    Good luck in your CWP journey. Your goal of 4 stone is very achievable by your holiday.

    I to am an emotional eater and I use food as a way of self harming.

    I will follow your diary and give you as much as support as possible so that you can reach your goal Xx

    Thanks girls! :D

    Met my consultant today, such a fab lady, I left there feeling very positive and confident I will lose the weight!

    And wahoo, I actually managed to lose 4lbs this week before I saw her :p

    My consultant is only available on Wednesdays so my first weigh in will only be 5 days in rather than 7, so I hope I still get a half decent loss.

    Tomorrow is my last day of real food, Friday is when the new chapter begins!

    Hope everyone is well and keeping strong! :grouphugg:

    So Day 1. . . Having a cappacino flavour shake with ice for brekkie - it's actually really yummy! Already drank 1 litre of water, 3 more to go at least! Did have a bit of a blowout yesterday, went to Harvester and it was amaaaaaazing but I think I overdid it on the carbs so probably going to have a lovely headache soon! :sigh:

    Thanks girls :) Had a mango shake for brekkie today, was refreshing!
    Have to say Im quite impressed with the flavours so far, when I did Lighter Life a few years ago it took all my strength not to gag and bring them back up!
    Still feeling positive
    Can we have sweeteners in coffee/tea? xx

    Belly rumbling today & horrible dry mouth. Getting sugar cravings & thinking of pick & mix aaarrrhgghhhhh :(
    Off to nap to distract me x

    Yup, sweeteners are allowed, but tablet ones only! A black tea with a couple of sweeteners or a fruity tea usually hits the spot for sweet cravings for me.

    Forget the pick and mix, and if you're really bothered about it make yourself a promise you can have some when you go on holiday and look forward to it. My problem is pizza, I'm never going to eat it but I do think about it a lot! Cant wait for my holiday to have some!

    Stomach is making all sorts of weird & wonderful noises today! Is this normal?! lol
    Veg soup - YUCK xx
  18. Theresa1966

    Theresa1966 Well-Known Member

    Yes Hun mine does that too! I quite like it in a sad way as I think it means that my tummy is burning the fat!

    I don't like the veg soup either! Only like the chili and tolerate tomato!

    Hope you are having a good day? X
  19. KatieM87

    KatieM87 Well-Known Member

    Ah good, thats a fab way to think of it - rumbling the fat away!
    I have only like the chilli one so far, all the shakes seem ok though.
    Having a good day, did a bit of window shopping to give me more motivation of the clothes Id like to be able to wear. And sat and had a black coffee whilst my friend had a caramel macchiato AND a millionaire shortbread in Starbucks :(- was painful but I felt really good for resisting temptation!
    How are you getting on hun? You are over halfway to your goal :superwoman:
  20. Theresa1966

    Theresa1966 Well-Known Member

    Well done Hun on resisting at Starbucks! It will be so worth it when you get to your goal! I love window shopping but also love buying!

    Had a good day today been in meetings all day which makes the day go quicker! Had a lemon bar for lunch in between my meetings then came in and had chili soup I am then going to have a chocolate mousse!

    Catching up now on everyone's posts and listening to Hollyoaks! So sad! How about you what you been up to today? X
