    I know it's quite late for the new years resolutions but I have decided after years of battling with my weight to try something new.

    I'm going to my first CD meeting tonight and I am actually really excited. I weigh 17 stone, the heaviest I have ever been, so now is the time to make a change. I've tried slimming world, and it just wasn't right for me. I've tried my own calorie counting diet, that didn't work either. I think i need a more controlled diet.

    Is there any tips and suggestions that people can give me?:)

    Hiya, good luck for your meeting. I am on Day 3 and so far so good, the first few days are the worst I am told and so far for me they havent been great, but the scales will move quickly if you stick to it. And you must, must drink your water! x

    Thanks for that CornishKez, i didn't think anyone would reply!

    The meeting went quite well, she did stress to me how important the water is aswell. I'm going to start tomorrow so it's a fresh start, and to be honest i think i'm more curious as to what it all tastes like more than anything else! x

    Hi jennakatherine, how has today gone? Good advice above...keep checking this site. Even if you aren't posted, read others diaries and stories. It helps remind you why you are doing it and that you are not alone. x

    Thanks for your support everyone, it's really appreciated.

    I had a sneaky peek at my weight today as my weigh in is tomorrow and I've lost 7 pounds! I can't believe it! That would've taken me at least a month in slimming world, i only used to lose a pound maybe two on there a week.

    Has anyone got some nice chicken/cod recipes because i'm starting to get a bit bored of just chicken and veg. Although it is the highlight of my day foodwise! xxx
