    Hey everyone! I'm a newbie on here and it's all thanks to my wonderful mother in law!

    She started on Lighter life in may last year and i was skeptical about it, with it being so low calorie and the fact that "fast loss, fast gain." She's now a small size and looks fantastic. I can't believe the weight loss and it's really hard to remember what she looked like when she was bigger!! I can't even remember! When I look at a photo it's amazing!

    I used to be a size 10/12 up until 4 and a half years ago. I fell pregnant with my son and the weight crept on and i didn't even notice! not until i had my son and i realised just how big i'd gotten. I was now a size 18.

    I've not been comfortable with the size i'd reached for a while but was too lazy to really do anything. I tried weight watchers but i felt it wasn't right for me. I never stuck to it 100% and that was my downfall.

    It was only this last Christmas in 2006 where I really thought "This is it." I'd seen the results on Chris (mother in law) and knew i could do it. I felt strong. She recommended CD as it tasted nicer (and was cheaper!) so here i am - Day 6 and feeling alright. It's hard when i have to make my son's tea and think "oooh i could just have a slice of toast!" but i know if i did that i'd come out of ketosis and i'd of let myself down. And i don't do failure well!

    Anyways - that's my rambling! I look forward in talking to others about the CD!!
