    Hi all

    Well I met my CDC this evening and I am all stocked up and raring to go tomorrow. Must admit to being a little nervous about what to expect especially in the first few days. I have been reading lots of posts and am so encouraged by how supportive you all are. Looking forward to joining in and hopefully posting about my own successes soon!

    Cheers
    Georgie

    PS - not sure if this ticker thing is going to work!

    Good luck.

    Make water your friend and your first few days will be easier. I also found that splitting my packs made the day go quicker.

    Just shout if you have any problems

    Thanks so much everyone for all your encouragement and warm welcomes! Day one here we go, have managed to get a litre of water down me already and am on my first Tetra which is surprisingly quite tasty. Have decided to keep a post it on my desk of water drunk otherwise I will loose track. Between that and trip to the loo it will keep me busy all day!!

    Take care all and have a great Tuesday

    Good luck on your Cambridge Diet journey!! Some days will be hard but most pass without you even thinking about it. You will be suprised how quick the weight will come off and how soon other people will be noticing.

    Hi Porgeous

    I do the post-it note thing too; I find it really helps. I'm at work usually from about 7.30am till 5.30pm so i make sure i do my customary 4 litres there and then anything I do after work is a bonus.

    Good luck... and remember there are so many people heer to help if you have any questions.

    Thanks guys, on the water - if I drink my four litres at work which I am likely to do, does it matter if I then don't manage much more in the evening or do you have to spread it over the day. The reason being I have a downstairs bathroom and am concerned about nighttime visits to the bathroom so want to ease off in the evening - does this sound competely daft?!!

    Hi Missleo, So far so good, feeling a bit hungry this afternoon but I think that is more in my head than anything. Trips to the loo are a bit of a pain and I think my colleagues think I have some sort of problem!! All in all though pretty positive. How's it going for you today?

    Cheers

    Hey Porgeous - I do exactly the same thing too, I try not to drink after about 7pm because I don't want to be up all night. I notice you're in Leighton Buzzard - I'm next door in Dunstable/Luton - small world

    welcome Porgeous, it IS exciting isn't it!! :D

    The start of a whole new you! :D :D

    I drink gallons and am constantly running to the loo, lol.. you'll get used to that, it's good exercise too ;)

    I drink right up to bed time... I know it means I dash to the loo in the morning but it's good for the system to be flushed so thoroughly (I think)... but whatever works for you is best for you :)

    Good luck, I'm sure you won't need it though as you sound like you've got a great attitude to it :D Keep us posted as to how you get on (diaries are ace things on here!)

    Best wishes, and, again, welcome to the mad world of CD :D
