    Started cambridge today for the first time, but I needed to start on step 3 as my bmi is over 40. So here goes.

    Are there any good recipes for the 1000kcal plan, because I hadn't thought about preparing food as I was planning on starting with soul source, thanks.

    i'm pretty sure cambridge has just introduced a step 2 and 3 equivalent which is just packs and lioads of milk, for people phasing in to SS. will see if i can dig out mama's thread on the subject...

    Oh that is great thank you. I'm on day 2 of step 3 atm so i may aswell finish this and this will be a great alternative to normal step 2 next week, and then i can get on with SS on week 3.

    The vanilla shake and choc mint are ok and alot better tasting than the last time I tried lipotrim but the cranberry crunch bar tasted really nice.

    Step 3 feels a bit too easy, but I hope I see some loss this coming sunday.

    p.s. Congrats on your losses, they look great :)

    Ty both, I was quite suprised but I guess when you have alot to loose you tend to loose more :p

    I found the first week wasn't too bad as I was on step 3 and was kept very busy with work. I just made chicken, brocolli and cauliflower each day, sometimes with some peppers and sometimes with chicken stock cube. Being on step 2 now feels kinda like the same thing. I guess it's gunna be alot harder on sole source :)

    I'm sure your losses will be great, it's definately good motivation when you see the results.

    Thank you all for encouragement :)

    I have just got back from weigh in number two and have lost another 7lbs
    .

    Now for the scary business of soul source, I hope I don't break now.

    p.s. Does using a small amount of skimmed milk in tea make it take longer to go into ketosis or stop it? I can't function without tea!! :)

    Everything still going great, just visited my sisters house and she was cooking burgers, they smelt soo good lol but I resisted.

    Also visited my doc for some smoking patches the other day and have begun that today, not had a craving for a cig yet and have a nasal spray for when i do, even though it makes me sneeze for about 3 minutes after taking it.

    Looking forward to weigh in on sunday and being fit and healthy in the near future :D

    Well done, fab losses. I stopped smoking at the same time I started CD. I think it was actually easier as I was just saying no to everything at the same time. It can be done. Good luck, let us know how you get on.

    Thank you :) Just back from weigh in number three and have lost 6lbs giving me a total of 2stone loss in 3 weeks which I am happy with, also knocking me under 40 bmi, i'm no longer official morbidly obese, just plain old obese :D

    The cigarettes however are more of a problem, I have smoked 20 over the past 4 days, which isn't too bad as I am usually 20-30 a day but I am disappointed with myself for smoking them, but will carry on until I don't smoke.

    This week I have decided to go back to the 800kcal step as I got quite bored on ss+ and having a nice healthy chicken salad for when i get back from work will give me something to look forward to. Also my consultant said I should still be looking at 5-7lb losses on that because of my current weight.

    All in all, good day and feeling positive :D

    Well done Davee that's a fantastic amount to lose in 3 weeks. Are you already starting to feel better about yourself?

    I gave up smoking a few years ago, and had to go cold turkey. If I'd have had one a day I'd have had 20..........guess that's why SS works for me too. I can't tell you how quickly I started to feel better, I always had a night time cough, and that went within a month or so, and as for the money, well I don't need to tell you how much I saved! Xx

    Think I got the stones to pounds in the statistics wrong so im not quite under 40bmi yet (even though on my consultants card it says 39.8) but very close. I have corrected it now.

    Anyway back from weigh in and I have lost another 6lbs, not the best but still good :)


    22.5stone now, will be good to see 20st and below :D

    Just got back from weigh in, unfortunately it was only 4 lbs :S

    It still in the right direction, but am a little disappointed as 2 more lbs would of taken me into the 21 stones area.

    I don't have a councellor meeting for 2 weeks now, so am hoping to see a nice loss during that time even though i will be indulging in some turkey and maybe a beer or two :)
