    Hi everyone, just stumbled across this site. Read a few threads and everyone seems really friendly and doing really well!

    I decided yesterday to do this diet, after a few weeks thinking about it and discussing it with my oh. I have rung a councellor in my area and left her a message, so in the meantime.

    What happens when she comes to see me? Do i start straight away or do i hve to get the dr to sign first?
    I want to lose about 1 1/2-2 stones, how long does it roughly take? I guess this is the same that the bigger you are the quicker the weight falls off? Im a size 12 and want to get down to a 10.

    Really excited about starting it. :)

    Thanks

    hey and welcome
    im new too, started today.... so far so good :D
    when iwent to see my counsellor, she talked me through the diet and what i would do, then she weighed me and took measurements
    i didnt have to get the doctor to sign.... i think thats if your BMI is over a certain range?
    i bought my foodpack from her on friday, and started today.
    think you could lose a stone in a month??? not 100% sure though... ill let the experts answer you lol

    good luck

    Hi mumto4

    When you go and see ur cdc she will weigh u and may measure u and just give u general advice.
    You can start straight away unless u need a doctors signature- u need this if ur bmi is 40 or over.
    You will lose on average a stone a month no matter what size you start at im pretty sure the stone a month is the same across the board unless u start on a higher plan.
    Since ur a size 12 just now wanting to be a size 10 i shouldn't thnk u'l be on it too long!!!
    Good luck whatever u decide!! x

    Good Luck Mumto4, as Lisa says you shouldn't need to be on it long at all you can normally expect to lose about 1stone a month on CD. Good luck

    Spoken with a councellor. I need drs approval because i am on meds. Hope they don't charge! Daft question, but do i need to make an appointment to get this done, or can i just take it into the surgery? I know if i make an appointment i'll get it quicker. Thanks
