Optimistic New Start!


Full Member
Hi everyone

I thought I'd introduce myself. I started the Cambridge diet yesterday, but i've been looking around on the web for information and came across this site - I've just spent 3 hours getting inspired by all the support and success stories on here, and I'd love to join in.
Anyway i'm feeling really optimistic about the diet so far. I've been putting it off for ages with excuses, but I am determined to do it now.
Already weighed myself this morning and have lost 2lbs!!

I hope you're all having a wonderful bank holiday weekend!

thanks for being so welcoming Cheryl
I have seen the before and after slides - i think that may be one reason why i'm feeling so unusually optimistic at the moment. I was amazed at how great everyone looks. I have done a 'before' photo of myself, hopefully I will have an 'after' one to go with it too one day!

Hi Hazel!

I am also new here, on my 4th day on SS and going well!! I have surprised myself as although I wanted to do this, I've always had such weak will power when it comes to food, obviously as wouldn't be where I am now, hehe!

Best of luck, and well done for already losing 2lbs! :D

This is a wonderful board, so you have come to the right place! Welcome!
