    Hi,
    i am starting CD tomorrow and am very nervous/excited!
    ive been on this forum all night and have found it addictive but so helpful to get other peoples views.

    i am looking to meet someone roughly my age (23) to share progress with so please drop me a line on here. god i feel like im placing an add in a lonely hearts column!!

    i cant wait to get slim for the summer just in time for holiday/music festival season where people walk around in next to nothing, and i want to be one of those people! i am looking to lose at least 4 stone, do you think this is do-able in time for the summer?

    Vanessa :) xx

    Hello Semi-Skimmed! Welcome to minimin's and well done for making such an amazing decision.

    The official Cambridge guidelines is a stone a month so that four stone will be gone by the time summer arrives - well the festivals anyway. Which ones are you going to? I'm planning on Leeds but don't know if I can take the toilets again...

    Anyway I'm 24 so slightly older but probably not wiser. With GSOH and all that jazz!

    Hi Chika,

    thats so good to hear about the weightloss! have you been on the diet long?
    well i have got my ticket for V festival and will be getting my Leeds fest ticket tomorrow, i go to it religiously, but the toilets are NEVER a bonus at these things, especially first thing in the morning!haha.
    i see your from Manchester, i live in Lymm which isnt far away
    x

    double dumplings- well youve lost 7lbs which is brilliant so well done you. i will be wishing this first week away like anything! ive got a night out planned on saturday and im really worried im going to see everyone else getting drunk and not be able to cope haha. did you feel hungry in the first few days at all?

    Nessa xx

    Wow Lymm, small world, I'm in Didsbury. This is my 12th day but I did it before last September for a little while and lost a fair bit.

    OMG I didn't know the tickets were on sale, I'm rubbish but will def get one sorted. i've only camped there once and we had the VIP camping and the loos were unspeakable so I don't know what I'll do if I get put in the coloured campsites. I might just hire a campervan!

    Have you got your packs or do you see your CDC tomorrow?
