    Hiiii all,
    I Started Cambridge diet in August 09 and within 6 months i was down to my goal weight 10st 10lb and i thought i would skip the rest of the steps and go straight back on food in moderation, but unfortunatly soome of the weight creeped back on and i am now 12st 12oz and absolutly mortified after paying all that money,
    so i restarted on Tuesday 15th and so far i am doing brill, I have tried restarting b4 but i found it really hard,
    Its now Sunday night and i have stuck to the ss+ 100% and I really want to get to 10 asap,
    I am Turning 30 this July and would be very happy to reach 10st well before then.
    just getting a bit bored with the shakes, has any body any good ideas that could make me stomach them??:D

    Welcome back hun, I did exactly the same, skipped the all important working back up the steps part thinking I'd be fine alone. I'd gained a stone then went back to it but a holiday in the US and Christmas meant I gained another 2st 5lbs so I right there with you fighting it off lol.

    I've now got 2st 9lbs to get to target again. Good luck and pop over and have a browse of my diary if it'll help, there's a few of us regulars on that thread.

    I can't post a link to it but if you look in the CD Diaries Section it's Operation Showgirl - Stand Up And Finish What You Started.

    Good luck you can do it!!!!!

    I have done exactly the same. I did keep it off for nearly 2 years, but a nasty divorce etc saw me revert to all my nasty habits again. I to, have 40lb to lose and my goal is the end of May. I am sure its possible by then!
    To make the sweet things more palatable I put cinnamon on the porridge which I make by adding psyllium husks to the sweet powders, and then whisking briefly. The CD porridge I leave relatively unadulterated. The savoury soups I add dried herbs, and let them soak a few mins before I eat it!
    My tastes this time around have changed. I think I want more soup!

    You're doing really well!

    Once a 'blowout' would have meant a lot more than a hunk of cheese! Give yourself credit for how far you've come.

    Good luck to all xx

    I got weighed today, only 4lb...... BUT my first week is a bit like that, I will probably do another 4lb next week too. I KNOW all I have had is the cheese, so it's just me. Mind you I did go into ketosis on the 2nd day, as I had been cutting down a bit before, so probably not too much around my liver. Well thats my theory anyway!

    As for the chip.... I wouldnt worry too much. If its not much over the carb allowance then the K fairy shouldnt disappear for too long!

    4lb is brill, just think of what 4lb looks like as solid fat, its a lot

    well done hun xx

    One bite isnt going to destroy a weeks worth of dieting!! What might is the guilt and then the 'sod it' that might follow! The only way is down for us all, so onwards and downwards!:D
