Hi all! I'm a fresh member here. I have an appointment with a counsellor tomorrow and will be starting the Cambridge Weight Plan for the first time. I'm 5'4 and I'm a little bit shy of 15st. I'm aiming to be 9st (fingers and toes crossed). The problem is that most of the people that surround me are not very sure about this diet plan; they think it's too hard and that I won't be able to pull through. But, it's really my last chance. I've been struggling with my diet for the past 15 years and it just feels like I'm stuck in a body that's not mine. I want to shedd off the excess weight once and for all and this is it! A couple of months back I was actually considering surgery, lap band or gastric balloon. But then I heard about the Cambridge Weight Plan and though, "maybe this is my last resort". And I honestly have no clue why in the world had I not heard about this glorious weight plan before, I must've been living under a rock somewhere.. I've done tons of research and read tons of reviews and experiences on lots of forums. And I've come to the decision that it would be healthy if I can turn to people that have gone through the same diet plan for support, because I know this won't be anywhere close to easy. So here I am. Who here is just starting? How have the first few days treated you? What should I expect during the first few days? Who has been on it for a whole now? What's the progress like? And what are the pros and cons?
