    Hi Everyone,

    I've just taken the first step of emailing a CDC to get started one final time on the Cambridge Diet.

    Hopefully I will be getting started in the next week or 2, and I'm looking for someone who's about my age (25) and at or around my current weight of about 27st (god that's shocking to write!). I am quite tall though (5ft9), and have an overall goal of losing about 15st, so anyone similar to this would be great.

    I know it will be a long and hard slog, so I feel like I need to plan and get the best tools available to me to achieve this, and I think a buddy going through the same things as me and on the same diet would be an amazing start. No one in my life is in much support of something that seems so drastic to them!

    Anyway, I know it's a long shot that there is someone out there like me, but it can't hurt to ask can it?!

    All the best to everyone and their efforts to become healthy!

    Angela xx

    Hey hun, I'd like to join Kitteh in offering my services! :)

    I'm 5'11 and started at *whispering* 25st 11. I have 13 stones to lose in total and have lost just under 6 so far so the half way line is in sight!

    We can do it but I know all to well that when there is as much to lose as we have it can seem such a massive task. I'm sure you already have thought of this but I find it easier to tackle it a stone at a time and mostly ignore the fact that I have 7 more to go as that's when I start to feel a bit disheartened lol

    Good luck girly!! :)

    your in the right place for support, everyone here is great :)

    dont worry about how much you want to lose, plenty of us here who want to lose double figures

    i started at 23 stone 3lb so had a tad over 14 stone to lose
    am now 20 stone 11lb and am on first week of a restart ( health probs had to stop for a while ) so have just under 12 stone to go
    happy to buddy if you need support
