Hello All,

I've been lurking on these boards for a couple of days until I joined CD. I finally joined last night and today is my first day on this diet.I 've already drunk 2 litres of water so fingers crossed this new me can continue. Hopefully I can get through the next couple of months without going of the rails.

Hi Davic,

Congratulations on starting your weight loss journey and it is good to have you here and look forward to reading your posts and see how you get on.

Set yourself some mini goals and focus on these and take it one day at a time.

Hope you have your before pics taken as you won't believe the difference a couple of months can make.

Also your body measurements.:)

Hi Davica

Take plenty of photos, and measurements and when you feel comfortable start a diary thread which will help motivate you on your weight loss journey.

Thanks all for your words of encouragement. I think I may really need it as I had a minor blip on my second day(I was sick - sorry). I'm back on it today but praying and hoping that what happened yesterday does not happen again.

I have 5st to lose so hopefully that will be off in the next few months.
The flavours are definitely different and may favourite so far is chocolate. Needless to say chocolate was the reason I ended up with all this weight.

All your threads are fantastic so far and has given me loads of ideas. I also hope to chat to all of you loads on here.



Good luck on your journey Davica, you will have lost that 5 stone before you even know it!

This is a really great site for inspiration and to keep you going on those days that are tough, so if you ever think you are going to lose it, come here first!
