    Hi everyone i've come over from slimming world. I will be going to see a CDC on friday and hopefully starting on saturday. I have done CD before but only lasted a week as i couldnt manage the shakes while i was working. As i'm not working anymore and at home with a baby and a toddler and at my heaviest. At slimming world i lost a stone but put it back on when i couldnt go to the classes so hopefully CD will give my weightloss a boost. I was just wondering how long does it take for the hunger pangs to go away x

    Hello. Welcome to the board!

    Hungry/headaches/tiredness seem to be at their worst days 2-4. By day 5 most people feel much better.

    Well done on losing 1st with SW. It's a huge achievement, even if its back now!

    How much are you planning on losing?

    Your journey is the opposite to mine! I plan on moving to SW, once I've lost most my weight. I have bren overweight my whole life, so I clearly don't know how to eat "normally". I'm going to go to SW to learn what to eat - but have pretty much accepted I'll have to stay on SW forever in order to maintain. (obviously with many flexi syn days!)

    I hit week 13 tomorrow. It's tough, but time flies once you're on a roll! The weightloss has kept me going! I got through the first week only committing to the next hour on plan. Now I go week to week. Before every WI I decide whether I can stay on SS one more week. Takes the pressure off me.

    Make sure you join some challenges and start a diary. It's helps. Also, someone is on this board 24/7 so if you're struggling - post - and someone will help!

    Make sure you drink all your water. It helps with the hunger and headaches, as well as bumps your weightloss.

    Good luck!

    Hiya Safia, I am new too!! I have just joined the forum but started my Cambridge Journey last Thursday.

    Its now day 6 and i saw my consultant for my weigh in today and i have lost 9 pounds.


    I have done the CD a few times before. The first few days are hard but it does get easier and the results are good.

    Good luck with your journey. Keep in touch.

    Laura x:)

    Hey i'm like you too i want to return to sw once i have lost a bulk of my weight. I am giving myself 3 months and than will decide from there whether i want to continue with CD or go back to sw. Ideally would like to get my weight down to an overweight bmi before i even consider leaving CD. I want to have baby no. 3 but have stopped ttc untill i have lost a bit of weight so that will hopefully help my stay 100%. I'm also a bit worried because the CDC has told me as i have done CD before and dont have anything medically wrong she will let me do ss but my bmi is over 40 which she knows. I will be so angry if i go there and she changes her mind as i am now fully prepared for it.

    Hi Safia good luck with starting CD, why would your CDC not let you do it? I have medical issues and needed a GP signature, as you said you have no medical issues so you should be fine.

    Welcome aboard :) Remember it's your journey and everyone is different so don't worry if you only lost three pounds the first week, that's about the most I ever lost the first time around and that was being an angel. I don't think exercise is encouraged at the start as you will be taking in so few calories.. take it step by step and remember water water water :D

    Maybe my bmi is over 40 thats why she might say needs the form signed even though i told her my bmi is over 40 but anyway hopefully she wont. I'm both happy but scared of the journey ahead but i really need some new clothes and as i have refused myself new clothes untill i lose weight i better lose it fast x

    Hi! :)

    I did the same as you, lost over 2 stone on SW & now come here to blast off the rest for Summer!

    I felt fine by day 5. Hunger went the night of Day 4. Headaches have gone today (Day 6)

    Good luck xx
