    Hiya, and good luck!

    Can't predict how your meeting will go, but mine went like this... meet with CDC, filled in some medical forms to see if I was OK to do CD, forms sent to doc for signature... discussed goal weight and different steps of CD. Given booklets & folder & card to mark weight losses. Weighed & measured. Offered option of a 'before' photo - too scared to! Settled on SS as best method for me, given a weeks supply of shakes/soups. Paid... and started next day!

    CDCs can charge slightly different amounts, but a weeks supply is maybe about £40 or a little more if you are on 4 shakes a day. I usually slightly over-order to have a small back-up in case of emergency, so can't tell you exactly, but there have been threads about this I know, & quite recently...

    I emailed a LL counsellor in early-November. No response. (She finally rang me in January after I'd already lost almost 2 stone!) So emailed a CDC & she called back that evening, we arranged to meet a few days later. Hope there is a fast response for you too!

    Hi

    I found that the CD website wasn't very up to date when I was looking for a CDC,I emailed a couple from the website and didn't get a reply, one of the phone numbers listed was also not in use.
    I found it better to ring the CD switchboard and they gave me a couple of phone numbers of CDC's in my area. Neither of them were on the website though strangely enough.
    Luckily I ended up with my CDC who is wonderful:)

    Mojo, notice you are in wales & also that you posted on Lelly's thread - she is a CDC for Cardiff and new to it but as you can see from her diary really lovely & supportive & wise. You're not in Cardiff, are you, by any chance?

    Might be worth seeing if she would travel to come to you? I am in a very rural area & my CDC comes to me. Just a thought, but I am sure you'll find a great CDC all the same! Good luck!

    good luck with your diet mojo-jojo. You'll lose that in no time.... I've only been doing it since the end of Jan and already lost just over 3 and a half stone. It's so motivating to see it coming off so quickly. Is there not a contact number for your cdc. Mine has her mobile number and email address on the website. I'd try a different on if she's not got back to you by tuesday.
