    Hi Everyone

    I thought it would be good for me to record my journey and share hard/good times with others that go through the same.
    My starting weight was 20stone 8lbs which was the heaviest I have ever been. I dont quite know how I let myself get like it but I did, I realised how unhappy I was with myself that I couldnt enjoy shopping for one! Lacked confidence when I am such a bright bubbly person and most of all the danger of my health.

    In January I started Slimming World and managed to loose 1 stone 9lbs, I loved the diet but coming up on June 12th I am attending a festival which I have done for the last years and wanted to be even smaller so I decided to join the Cambridge diet.

    My first week has passed and I lost 12lbs which i was over the moon with! Feeling a bit low today as the smell of food is getting to me and all my friends are off out drinking but I am staying in. But then I need to think that I want to be in smaller dress sizes!

    I have dropped from a 22 to 20 and hoping for a size 16 by the festival, not sure whether this is at all possible but will try my hardest.My goal is to get to a size 12 and stay that way.

    Lets hope I can succeed, my next weigh in is only 2 days away as my counsellor is off on hols so I am only having 5 days of diet I pray for good results.

    Have not touched food let alone it be in my mouth since started CD so want to keep it that way!
    Fingers crossed xxx:p

    Many thanks Maria
    Just had my 2nd weigh in and if five days lost another six so pleased with that! Next time I get weighed is in 10 days due to my counsellor being on hols. Found it really hard in the weekend not eating infact quite tearful at times but I seem to cope well in the week!

    Hey Cazj & Doirin
    Thank you so much for your messages put a smile on my face when i read them! I am pleased that I have got this far and already planning my weekend to try and avoid how upset I got the weekend just gone, although my friends are all getting together sat night for drinks and buffet food so going to avoid it as think i will be torturing myself! Not ready for that at this time. I wish you the best of luck, keep me posted on how you get on. Its lovely to speak to people in the same situation really is motivating.
