    So today i am starting the Cambridge Diet as the last stage of my "New Life Plan"!
    2 Years ago i did the lighter life diet and although i did really well, i have put most of the weight back on. I wasn't really in the right place to keep it off i don't think, however , 6 months ago, i decided that my life could only get better if i made it happen, hence my new life plan.
    I have moved house, changed jobs and have started having councilling to deal with the break down of my 20 year relationship which has had a massive effect on my life. The only thing i'm unhappy with now is my weight and my lack of self esteem that goes with it. So, yesterday i decided enough was enough. I start a new diet every day, and every day i fail. It's exhausting!
    I looked for CD councillers on line, phones someone and two hours later was driving home with my supply of shakes.

    This is it, no more putting my life on hold while waiting to be slim, today the slimmer me starts, and tomorrow i will be slimmer than today.

    So, so far so good. Water water water and one shake. My children are at their Dads today but i am looking after someone elses child (i need to learn to say no!). I'm taking him out for lunch later, but i won't be tempted, i want this too much.

    I'm hoping this diary wll keep me occupied dring some of the extra time i'll have now food is out of the equation. Also something to look back on when it gets tough which i know it will at times. So here's to a successful first day! Am noe off to the loo, which is where i imagine i'll be spending plenty of time today :)

    hi nice to meet you :) You sound like you are certainly in the right head space to be starting CD now , I feel that success lies with being positive about the plan and about yourself , and you certainly sound it :)

    Good luck with the first week , just remember that it will be tough but does get easier :D

    Hi :) I agree, i know from lighterlife that you definately have to be in the right head space and i actually found it far easier than any conventional diet. It's just the socialising thats hard, i do like a drink or 2 ;) You have done amazingly!!! I just looked at your pictures and you're a completely different person! You must be so proud of what you have achieved, well done :)

    hello there, I am on my day too!! Good luck Mrs, you sound really positive. I am feeling really motivated and sooo want to do this!! Maybe we should buddy up as we are starting together?

    I had plain porridge for breakfast with a sprinkle of cinemon...um, it was interesting!!! Am on my 3rd pint of water. I am abit nervous about some of the kitosis side effects!

    Hi Felix and Chellerypickle, don't worry about the side effects Chelly, i found before that as long as you drink the water the first three days really aren't as bad as you expect, apart from the hunger! After that the side effects are all good (except the bad breath). Loads of energy, no hunger, a flat tummy and fat dropping off daily :)
    On ligter life we weren't allowed chewing gum, not sure if we are on this but i'm having it anyway! The bad breath made me so self concious before and as long as it's sugar free i can't see the harm?
    We could definately buddy up, esp during these first few days when the hunger is a killer. I've just started to feel hungry now but i quite like that feeling, it's not one i've had in a while as i've been eating so much that i'm constantly full. I'll prob come on here this eve to distract myself from the rumbles.

    Im on the 5th pint of water....to be honest I think I need it to take the taste away from the plain porridge I had for brekkie this morning. That was quite an introduction to CD...blurghhhh!!! I am at my the in-laws and theres lots of buffet food left in the kitchen from yesterdays family gathering...I sooo nearly forgot I was doing this went to grab a handful of peanuts.It was a very close call lol!

    I am trying to hold out till 3-4 for my lunch shake as we are driving back to London from Manchester this evening and I dont want to be tempted at the service stations lol.

    You mentioned hunger....what is hunger? I have NEVER felt hunger...am scared! lol

    I've had sugar free gum since I started the diet so you should be fine. Some people say you shouldn't because it makes you hungry but it doesn't for me :)

    I have a really sweet tooth so didn't go for the plain porridge. I had a choc orange shake this morning which was fine, and i've just got back from the pub that i took the little boy i as looking after for lunch (his Dad owns it) and i declined the free roast, resisted the bowls of roast potatoes on the bar and the glass of wine that i was offered and had 2 coffees.......black!
    Very proud of myself. Have just had a chocolate orange bar which was lovely and i'm having maple and pecan porridge later. So far so good and peeing for England :rolleyes:

    Thank you here comes the bride :)
    Day2

    First day completed and it wasn't hard at all. Felt a bit hungry at times but not as much as i thought i would. Managed 4 litres of water too. Tummy feels flatter already today but i do have a bit of a headache so must keep glugging the water! Not as easy when working though as i can't keep going to the toilet like i did yesterday!
    So apple & cin porridge in a mo, then off to work. Will be home just after 2 so will have my bar then. I was told to have 3 packs a day but i'm 6ft so not sure if that's ok? I think it was because i was worried about the cost but i just hope it's still a healthy amount for my height.

    So day 2 is proving to be a bit harder! Have been hungry on and off all day although it has been copeable. I work in a food shop and today i kept looking at things thinking i might get some of that and then remembering that i can't eat! I actually feel quite bereft that i can't have food...........and it's only day 2! I know when ketosis kicks in though that will be easier. I have just made a lovely dinner for my boys and it was so hard not to pick nat the left overs cause i'm HUNGRY!!!! I put it straight in the bin though andwill be having a shake later so just keep trying to fill mysef up with water. Going to get some batteries for my wii fit board tomorrow and start exercising again. Anything that will get me to where i want to be quicker is what i'll do:)

    I know!On lighter life i had to wait for week 2 so i questioned it but she said it was fine to have them from the start. I really enjoy them so didn't push the issue! Still you have something new to look forward to now. How's day 2 been for you?

    Day 3

    Hunger is off the scale so far today but i haven't had time for as much water. Also i've been quite dizzy, at work i spend all day bending down and standing up again and when i stand, the room spins! Have glugged a load of water now though and it's better. Two packs down, 1 to go and it's going to be a long afternoon. Am banking on feeling better by tomorrow though and i have a mid week weigh in and will do a ketosis test (quite excited!)
