    Hey everyone

    Not new to minimins but new to the Cambridge diet. My husband and I started the diet on Thursday so we are currently on day 3! So far so good :)

    I was doing the Lipotrim diet before and I must say that CD is sooo much better and there is so much variety!

    I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life and I know I have to get rid of it for good! I have a lot to lose and could do with all the support in the world xx

    Welcome MrsFB
    Day 3, so now it should all get much easier. And what a brilliant position to be in that you and hubby are doing it together so you have a live in support network :D

    Looking forward to sharing the highs and the lows with you.

    Tbh if it wasnt for my husband i wouldnt be doing this. I knew how hard it was going to be for me to do it on my own.. and considering he could do with losing a few as well we both decided to do this and support eachother :)

    Look forward to it hun xx

    God I cant even think about getting to week four yet. how much have you lost so far?

    mmm curry and chappatis.. would love some right now. thats the problem really, being asian I love my curries and spicy food and cant have none!!

    thank you huni, i hope we all do xxx

    Hi I'm new to CD too, on day 3 too. You're very lucky your husband is doing it too I find it hard being around food all day cooking for 3 kids and hubby, but I stuck to it! How are you feeling so far? I didn't cut back on food or up my water before I started and have been feeling a bit headachey and have a really sore neck and back, feel like lying down!
    I wonder how long until I start to feel great?!
    Good luck

    well done on your weightloss hun!
    cant imagine how hard it is for you having to cook normal food and not be able to eat it! good on u!! Think you should keep on going, two more stones and like you said you wont stop till your happy :) but its nice to know the compliments are coming in bet its a great boost !

    well I have a whole suitcase and more full of clothes that I always said I would try and get into... so hopefully in a month or so I'll be trying them on xx


    hey hun, yes i did get lucky having my husband to it too.. and he's been really great with making sure i drink water and stuff... coz im hopeless! to be honest Im same as you didnt cut back on food or increase water... last i remember i ate like a pig the day before i started lol... im struggling with water intake and cant wait till i can have some flavour in it.. i think thats the problem really water is too boring!

    I think the fact that your getting headaches is coz ur not drinking enough and plus sounds like your going into ketosis.. we both need to encourage eachother to drink more! and i think the great feelings will start from tomorrow :) xxx


    thanks nette xx

I can tell by my clothes getting loose and that just keeps me going believe me u wil be so pleased when u go bak after a week and see the big loss on the scales !! It gets very easy after few days iv got b'day party Friday I'm going to go but not eat don't see the point in eating at 8pm when all day I have been on cd!! Keep it up n Mark my words u will be so happy ... When is it first appt with CDC and how much weight are you hoping to loose if u don't mind me asking xx

    Good luck - you have the right attitude not weighing yourself, unfortunately I'm a bit of a serial weigher I'm on and off the scales every 5 minutes :( I read in another thread you saying to throw the scales away, you may have a good point there but I fear I would be popping in and out of Boots then to use their scales! Hope you are having a good day - PGD x
