New to CD - Starting this week!!!

Hi All,

My name is Jennie and I'm going to be starting up the CD diet sometime this week (I hope, just waiting on the products to arrive). I hail from the US and I know the rules are a bit different and I actually have the blessing from my GP to proceed with sole source and I'm hoping to consume around 400 kcal with a whole ton of water!

A little bit about me, two years ago I weighed 220 lbs and decided that I needed to lose some weight to catch me a man! I really busted my buns and at this time last year I weighed 165 lbs and really started to love the new me! I did find myself a man, someone who loves me no matter what size I am, so I'm a winner in that respect! However shortly after I hit 165 I realized that I was no longer losing weight and in fact was gaining. I went to the doctor to figure out what was up and got diagnosed with advanced Graves Disease and had my thyroid ablated within a week. Between the unbelievable increase in appetite and dropping to extremely hypothyroid before starting my hormone replacement - I'm almost back to my original weight. But for the first time in my life I can honestly say I'm ready to change my weight for me, not someone else.

I'm going to give it my all right away and I'm confident I can succeed! If I can quit smoking cold turkey after 8 years, I can handle this (I hope! :D).

I've found so many of these posts to be amazingly inspirational and I'm sure I'll have loads of questions so I sure hope you can all put up with me! Thanks in advance and I'll see you on the slim side!

Thanks Kitty! Notice I'm determined now but I'm sure hoping that i stay that way through the first few days when my stomach is threatening to eat my liver!
Good Luck Jenny, it's a fantastic diet and one I'm sure you will find works for you. This is a great site for motivation and support. Look forward to seeing you on here.
Well I WAS going to start the diet tomorrow but my package of products was stolen from my front door within the 20 minutes between it being delivered and my getting home from work :(. Someone else will be getting skinny on my pocket book!
