    I all I have just come across this fab site. I have started cambridge today. I get married in April and would like to lose 3 stone. When I went to uni ten years ago my weight started to creep up - too many takeaways and alcohol!! By the time I had finished my course I was 2 stone overweight. Throughout the next ten years I yo yoed - losing the 2 stone with slimming world and then putting it all back on again. I had a baby 2 years ago and I am now the heaviest I have ever been. My wedding in April is now my main focus and inspiration to lose weight. I am doing sole source and if I'm honest I am nervous about being able to stick to it. Any hints, tips or support would be gratefully appreciated xxxx

    It is a fab site isn't it Louise. Well done on completing day 1 !. I am on day 4 today and haven't found it too hard. Loads of really inspirational posts here which are invaluable on such a tough plan.( Tough but doable) Plenty to drink is the thing that has got me this far. lots n lots of luck to you :)

    Tea counts towards the recommended water intake.

    Hi Louise,

    I'm another bride too and started on Monday. Day two was my worst so far - felt awful. My CDC said to take a paracetamol if needed and I did on Day two! Stick with it - it'll get better once you get into Ketosis.

    OOH - wasn't a huge fan of the butterscotch myself. I was rather disappointed as I was hoping for butterscotch angel delight (perhaps that's where I went wrong!) :lol:

    Hi Kirsty!!! I keep looking at pictures of my wedding dress it's a great motivator!
    Day 4 today - last 2 days I've got to end of day and realised I still need to fit 2 shakes in as I haven't been hungry. I'm gonna have them at set times today I think

    Haha I'm guessing you figure "marked" was "married" then haha Oopsie iPhone autocorrect!!


    I'm just starting day 3 now! And I did ss+ yesterday and struggled to fit in my last shake. But forced it in at 930 I think it was lol!

    I know my dress fitting isn't till nov! Where I get sized and dress ordered. So I'd like to be back down to my lowest again. 3 months and just over 3 stone. Is it achievable :/ xxx

    They say an average of 1 stone a month so definitely. I have already ordered my dress and it's fits as I am now a size 16 but I've been told it can be taken in 2 sizes so this is what I'm hoping to do. Plus it's also a lace up back to can be pulled in and tighten until I'm blue in the face to show of the waist I will hopefully have!!,
