Mo information

Please excuse the short inoduction I was trying to use the app I downloaded and wasn't sure if it was working correctly. On the full site now.

I'm Lynette, I'm 27 years old and have been on the Cambridge weight plan for 1 week now and have my first weigh in tomorrow.

I have been on the Cambridge plan before, started January last year. Unfortunately after a miscarriage I put alot of weight on and mentally have struggled to get on the diet properly. I am now back to the orignal weight before the diet plus 10 pounds and want to lose just under 4 stone

I feel more motivated than ever now as my boyfriend has proposed and I really want to look amazing not only for the wedding but all the fun stuff that comes before it.

Although today was a tough day, I somehow made it through. I'm not sure that without some more support I can do that again and am hoping to meet some new friends on here that I can offer a word of encouragement too and perhaps get some back.

I will log on again tomorrow to see what's happening

Thanks and I look forward to speaking to you all soon :) xxx

Hi Eaf :)
I'm definitely more of a soup girl, I use the blender to mix it and have it a bowl to eat with a spoon, it feels like I'm eating something that way, tricking my mind a little lol. I like the shakes for the morning though as I've never been a big breakfast fan so it's nice to just have something sweet. What about you? How are you finding it? Have you tried anything like it before?

If you need someone for support or your feel you might be struggling just get in touch :) xxx

I have deffo learnt blended is the key!! Had the spicy tomato soup in a mug and it wasn't great but tonight I blended the oriental one and had it in a bowl too!! So much nicer! I actually sat with the family who where all tucking in to their lovely meals, but didn't feel like I was missing out on much!
I have just finished day 3, and found it ok. Had slight stomach cramps but was prepared for worse!!
No I have never tried anything like this before. I am finding it on the whole ok so far touch wood! Day one I wasn't very positive because every pack I had I didn't like! But then thanks to here learnt about blending the shakes with ice! And I have enjoyed everyone since!
Thanks lynette!
What day are you on now? How's it going? Xxxxx

Cravings disappeared knowing I'm on the right track :)

Eaf, your totally right, this sites great for advice, I've been on a few times but never joined! Really glad I have it's a great place to come and share success or discuss problems.

Never liked the tomato soup by the way :-( it's the one flavour I can't do, it's too hard to get right and pastes too powdery and thick! Love love love the oriental chilli, my fav by far.

I've not tried the shakes with crushed ice, I will in the morning now. How are you getting on now, have the cramps subsided? I'm now on day 12 and excited to weigh in Monday afternoon, people are already mentioning a difference which is a great motivator!

Hope you doing well and staying strong xxxx
