newbie introduction

Hello there, just wanted to introduce myself

I started CD yesterday weighing 12 stone 8 and only 5 foot 2 so have a fair bit to go. :sigh:

Haven't found the shakes/soups too bad and have been knocking back the water which is a bit hard but I keep looking ahead to a slimmer me.

Wish me luck

Hi Poppet

Welcome to Minis and to the rollercoaster that is CD. Grit your teeth through the first week and it will all be worth it.

Look forward to seeing you shrink!

Hi Alison,
I`ve just started CD today, i`m not finding it to bad at the mo!
With the water put some in a sports bottle and carry it with you, you`ll be surprised how much you drink with out realising.
Good luck x

Fed up of being fat
Hi Alison and welcome, this is a fab diet and you will have the weight off in no time. Keep posting and keep drinking the water.
Yes Leah, that would be great.

It is my 34th birthday on Friday and have felt good at refusing a lunch date with my mother and a dinner with my OH, so determined am I to get this weight off.

Thank you for all your kind, supporting words.
