Couldn’t face thinking about real food yesterday so stuck with all Cambridge meals. I think it’s ok on days where the family are having lovely protein I can join them and add veg (all from the list in diet).
If you’re still feeling motivated maybe go hard on just products for another 2 weeks as a last hurrah and then cut down and do maintenanc. You’ve done awesome so farSo 10 weeks of this diet done. Weigh day and I’m 1lb down taking me to 27lbs. I am crawling to 28lbs where I feel I should have been at 2 weeks ago which really is frustrating. Cambridge is an average of a stone a month and when you don’t hit those targets it’s expensive at £150-£170 fortnightly.
Now checking my inch loss, I have now lost more inches off my chest and hips this week so the weight is going it’s just not showing up on the scales.
So my choice is I stick with eating only the Cambridge packs - not the easiest when the scales don’t want to move much for a month ( this feels safe) or the next step up which is still 3 Cambridge meals and add a forth meal of 200 kcal of veg and protein from their specific food list. Real food! Maybe I need it. I’m also terrified of having real food after 10 weeks of having nothing off this plan. It’s only because I’ve never in my life been this motivated and focused but perhaps this is a test to myself to see how I go introducing food back in.
I think at 12 weeks you have to step up to this plan for a week anyway.
At least I’m thinking about it and not just grabbing something off plan. But it’s driving me loopy but passing this 2 stone mark.
Need to up my water
How is it going!! I know its been a while but yes how is your diet? Reached your goal yet? Would love to hear it all!!Hi Cambridge Dieters
I am looking to start a new 1-1 Cambridge chat to support each other all the way from losing to maintaining. A stone a month is the average and it’s really exciting when we start to see the results. I’d forgotten! It’s so much easier now with a phone consultation, a consultant who’s there however much or little you need them, I weigh myself which I prefer and far more product choice than we had years ago
I had huge success with this plan before children 14 years ago (used this forum a lot). Moving forward having the usual battles with yo-yo dieting on and off, I took the plunge and started Cambridge 6.5 weeks ago and I am loving it. For some reason my head seems to be in the right place and I’m being stubborn and sticking religiously to plan (1B - my choice to have 4 products). This is regardless of celebration meals, holidays, friends meals out etc. I don’t want to faff, I just want to get the weight off and then learn to move up the plans properly which I didn’t do previously.
Last weigh-in was Saturday 6 weeks and I’m on track with a 21lbs drop (had been away 5 days and took my packs with me). My initial goal is 4 & half stone although healthy BMI says 5 stone. I’ll decide when I get there. I started mid June so by mid November I may have the 5 stone off which is mind blowing to me.
I am determined now at mid 40’s to get healthy and stop being so exhausted all the time. I feel absolutely amazing this last 6 weeks - so much energy and not hiding from being photographed at last. I only had day 2 of brief headache and that was it. No hunger at all….. I’m shocked. It’s brilliant.
I am a really busy working Mum with a full time career where I need to be super confident and 2 daughters who are also non stop with their activities keeping me on the go always.
I would love if anyone is having a read to hop on, say hi and share your story. If we can share our journey together, take time to appreciate what we are achieving, lift each other up and celebrate that would be wonderful.
Good luck to everyone xx
•I can’t wait to enjoy fashion again. To go clothes shopping with my daughters and have a choice of what I buy. At 9 weeks this is already starting to happen
•My skin & hair improved within days of starting. At 9 weeks I’ve had a compliment about how lovely my skin is. I have never had this before.
•My eyes are brighter.
•I sleep through the night and wake up alert. At 9 weeks, I’m so used to good sleep now that I’d forgotten how bad my sleep was before.
•I have loads of energy and feel happy. At 9 weeks this has increased. I feel so good.
•People started to compliment me which hasn’t happened in years. At 9 weeks people are noticing my hair, skin & clothes. Close family see the weight loss.
•I’m really appreciating the weight loss journey this time having carried around 4-5 extra stone for a few years and hating it.
•I am looking forward to Christmas where I am going to be at my goal weight and feeling fabulous.
How are you getting on now?Hi I'm nearly 2 weeks in now and must admit I'm getting a bit bored. I might speak to my consultant about adding some chicken ? Anyone else done this?
Hi. Nope lol. Need to keep going. Hoping by Christmas I’ll get the majority of 2 stone off. Once I added food into the mix I got thrown. Not off completely but I’d have days off here and there so I’ve maintained more than lost. Such a pain. But back in it now. I got got caught out a few times when away or long days and just grabbed food. I didn’t have enough ready made products to take with me- that sort of thing. But I’ve never dropped the diet. I’ve always got straight back to it.How is it going!! I know it’s been a while but yes how is your diet? Reached your goal yet? Would love to hear it all!!
@Beachbody2024 how are you getting on?Hi Visualizing, thanks for starting this and well done to everyone on your losses.
A little on me....mid 40s started CWP on Sept 4th at 3 stone more than pre lockdown weight.
I tried most of the products over the last 11 days to see what I liked/disliked.
Found I absolutely hate the thai green curry noodles and the peanut bars (thought I would love!)
I like the porridge for breakfast as its filling...veg soup for lunch...spag bol for dinner and a bar in the eve. Ive got mainly these products this week.
Still having 3/4 tea with a tiny drop of milk.
Weigh in 1 this morning and down 11lbs! Im thrilled.
Best of luck to everyone on the week ahead.
Best of luck with your start today. 34 days till Xmas Eve. We can do this. A full stone could go in a month !!!!!!!!!Back on it now starting at step 1a. Did it 10 years ago and lost 5 stone baby weight. In that time I've dabbled with slim n save which worked well but now seems to make me feel queasy after a month. I'm not sure if Cambridge had better ingredients perhaps. I have 3.5 stone to lose. Meant to be starting Monday but may start before. Products are very diff from what I remember and not as much choice as slim and save but hopefully this will work. I'm ready for it. I'll write this xmas off apart from Xmas Dinner but I'll try ans be good.
