    Hi All,

    Have been browsing on here for weeks and thought I would come say hi & share my CD Story so far.

    My Dr wouldnt sign off my form, as my BMI is over 40 which meant I had to start on the 1200 plan - not that I mind, I lost 7lbs in my first week, 5th WI in this week and I'm loving it. I view it as I'm re-educating myself about food and this is what I have been needing as I have now lost a stone already.

    I love the shakes except Fruits of The Forest, Choc Orange & not a huge fan of the Strawb altho I do have it. I also love the Choc Tetra & Summer Berry Water Flavouring. I have tried some of the bars, but the Cranberry one gave me really bad wind & the choc one was too rich - not that I ever thought I'd say that seeing as I love, or should I say loved Boost Choc Bars! I do love Malt Toffee tho.

    Somethings I have learnt so far - the 'Hinari Genie' blender I bought from Makro for approx £20 is the best ever - esp for Mix a Mousse, I measure out a bit under 150ml of normal water, then go and get about 6 icecubes and put them in the water - leave it for a few mins and then take them out & the water is really chilled. Meanwhile open your sachet & put a level spoonful of Mix A Mousse in it - shake, but often it doesnt shake that well so I mix it with a lil spoon. Blend it for approx 30 seconds (which is all you need in the Genie) then pour into a bowl. If I put it in our Fridge up here it doesnt set, but I put it in the one in the garage which is set realy cold and it sets like a lovely airy mousse.

    Also, drink the water and tell yourself that you are doing your body the world of good - yeah it can taste bland, but we all need it.

    Finally - this might be TMI but my periods have always been irregular, even more so as I gained weight and now I've got one which feels more heavy than usual? But I've seen I'm not the only one that gets this doing CD - is nice to share it with fellow peeps who might be in the same boat as me.

    Anyway thats my essay over with!

    Hi Everyone - thought I would reply to this thread rather than start another - went for my 5th WI just over an hour ago and have lost 5lbs in a week!
    Talk about happy - I'm now also loving the inches going down properly now! Made my CDC very very proud of me - long may it continue I say.
