    Now, we all know that this forum is amazing for support, but I thought I'd share something I found rather surprising, and hopefully encouraging to anyone thinking about starting Cambridge, or really all TFR diet.

    I was really nervous about starting CD, not because of the shakes or anything like that, but because of what my family would say: I live at home still (only 19!) and we're all quite close, so I knew they'd all find out eventually.

    I told my mum, and she was a little concerned, but agreed with me in the end, and besides, I was an adult, so I could do what I want. My girlfriend has been nothing but supportive. Telling my dad and sister was okay, the latter asked plenty of questions, and asks me how I'm doing and is generally being great.

    My brother, now I thought he would tell me I'm being stupid, or completely piss on my efforts in one way or another, but he's actually been awesome too. Again, lots of questions, but I'll I've had is wonderful concerned support. It's great. I hope anyone thinking about starting has the courage to just tell people - because sometimes they surprise you ^^ :)

    My dad was so impressed, he's actually going to start it himself.

    That is so lovely to hear, the diet is so much easier when you have support. And I've just seen your first week weigh in result - well done that is a huge loss xx

    thats super hun!

    I always find it odd that when "we" are getting fatter and fatter, no one says a word, but then when we undertake a diet to do something about it, everyone has their judgements to make!!
    Its a lot more helpful on our journey to slimdom if people just support rather than judge so its super than you have that unconditional support!

    good luck with your journey hun

    Thats great, I'm glad your family have been supportive, makes a difference doesnt it.
    I didn't tell people but the people who do know asked a few questions and are very supportive.
    Well done on your first weeks weight loss!!!

    I think its amazing how much better I feel after I feel after losing just 1 stone, (and I have a quite a bit of weight I want to lose, 7+ stones in total) anyway enought about me, just wanted to say very well done xx
