    Hey!

    I am starting on Monday and would like to say I have spent the afternoon reading some people posts and stories and you are all an inspiration! I actually did Cambridge and failed terribly, I lost about 2 stone before my wedding- still felt like a whale in my dress :( I actually hate my wedding photos and have not even printed them to put in an album! so, I want to get to 15 stone, and then try and achieve 12 :) I don't think I have been 12 stone since I was in high school?I am 5'8 so always carried it well, infact when I hit 13/14 I think I may be happy :) I want to be able to buy clothes that look good, and I want to start riding my horses again, I gave up because I was fed up with looking like a fatty and the felt like I was too heavy for my horse :( . I failed the cambridge but I am bad at discipline! But I am going to try to hard and stick with this, so if you are starting on Monday for the new year then please get in touch and lets do this together :) xxx:)

    Welcome sg and good luck.
    It sounds like you have similar stats to me when I started in October. My BMI then was 43.8, but am happy that I've now got it down to 36.1. I've not been down at the 12 stone mark since I was about 12, so I'm so excited that this diet might help me to make it to a 'normal' weight.

    I think the best bit about this diet, is that you can mix it with working solution; so if you're really missing food you can mix it with some lean meat / low carb and still stay in ketosis (the weight loss may slow down a bit), but at least it gives you some options without necessarily having to fall off the wagon totally (if you have a bad day!)

    Anyway, welcome and good luck, and hopefully 2011 will be your year to lose the weight. xx

    hey, you will do okay. If you feel you cant do just shakes then nibble on some chicken. I love cold chicken with a sprinkling of salt & pepper. Good luck :D

    oh also when I was doing cambridge I would have - shake for breakfast, shake for lunch and soup for dinner and then another shake in the evening- I am planning on having half a bar for breakfast, shake for lunch, soup for dinner and other half of the bar- does anyone else stuggle with just the two sachets and the bar? x

    If you go to tickerfactory.com you can set up your own ticker and it will give you the code to paste into your signature.

    The total calories from the Exante 3 packs is equivalent to CD or LL 4 packs, so I don't think it will affect your hunger in any way. But if you prefer to 'eat' something 4 times a day, then breaking the bar in half works well.

    Cambridge SS
    Hi i'm starting today, decided to try and get 2 days down before I get back to work - hopefully won't be as painful lol. I have tried Cambridge and lost 8 stone about 3 years ago but thanks to wine and excessive eating / lack of exercise I managed to put it all back on again. Thought I would give Exante a chance as alot of people say that the shakes are nicer and not soo chemically tasting and smelling.

    Just about to have my first shake....

    Anyway here's to a happy & healthy new year.
