Mamma Caz signing on


Have a serene day!!
Hiya all.,

Just been given the link to this by my Cambridge Guru, she is also an old friend of 6 or 7 years.

Was very envious when I saw her last year for the first time in about 6 months and was flabergasted by how great she looked. She was never big to start with but looking at her before and afters well I would never have thought it.

I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes last year, have always been a big girl but it was the age old story after having the kiddi winkies I ballooned to 17.5st. Have come down over the years but was yo-yoing between upper 15st and 16.5st.

Anyway I was lucky with my GP he knew the ins and outs of the CDiet and also specialised in Diabetes so was quite happy to sign me up.

I am just starting my fourth week of 1200kcal step and I have lost 8lbs as of last thursday that is.

I also attend what I charmingly call 'Fat Club' at the GP surgery once a week to be weighed and have in total since 3rd October lost 18lbs.

I didn't get into the GP diet very well, although a lot of sound advice my problem was portion control, so I had already started Calorie counting when I went and signed on the Cambridge, so it was no big deal to cut down again.

I have to say that the Cambridge is really good even though I am only on the 1200kcal I am finding it quite easy (famous last words) and I love the shakes.

I want to do Sole Source but I daren't until I have been for my consultant visit which is 29th March until my long term levels are down I cannot come off the meds, so because I am cutting down on the intake I have cut my meds to suit otherwise I find I have 'funnies' and end up having to eat sweets which is no good especially when you miss them anyway.

Well I have gone on long enough, take care guys.

Hiya folks.,

Back online, didn't have chance to look last night, Waking the Dead & ER on telly sad to say I am an addict.

Thanks for the support from all of you, it is great to know that you are not alone.

As regards exercise, I do the normal housework, but I have horses and I have to muck out 3 of them everyday and turn out and bring in at night, also I help my Mum out with hers, taking hay up the field to the horses that live out and that is all done on a wheelbarrow, but if I walk about 2 miles a day thats it.

I know I should walk more, but the kids have a wearing effect and when I get home all I want to do is chill.

I figure that while the horses are in and need doing I am burning at least 250 calories a day, so I am happy with that, am not going to go down the guilt trip route anymore.
