    Just wanted to introduce myself and see if anyone wants to 'buddy up'

    I am restarting cambridge after the birth of my son (6 months old) I managed to maintain my weight after my initial go at Cambridge and now want to shift the baby and too many coffees with my friends weight! I am just starting back at work so it is the prime opportunity to get going again. I have an appointment with my CDC on 5th Feb for restart but am now cutting out carbs completely and eating as if I am on plan downing the water as well until then.

    If anyone has any tips or anything that would be great i can see there are lots more products since last time so would interested to know what they ar elike. Hoping to lose 2 stone by April!

    Hi there - day 1 for me - just had by nutritious delicious shake for tea - yum yum:)

    Really need to shift 4 stone and to keep it off - I put mine on after my first pregnancy - that was 11 years ago!!

    I know it's going to be a rough ride but I value the support on this site to see me through the tough times and celebrate our successes xx

    How are you getting on?

    I am on day 4 now - trying to keep myself busy - it's not too bad when I am at work but evenings are a struggle so have been going to bed a bit earlier.

    Last night found it really difficult - so I looked at the inspirational pictures and it really really helped me.

    I just need to get though my first week, I really really don't want to go back - I hate my size at the moment and I am the only person who can make a positive change to my life.

    The weekend is going to be a real test, fingers crossed. ..........................

    Hi, yea I feel exactly the same. Evenings and weekends are the toughest for me because that's when I would usually binge on crap. I love pudding after a meal so have been skipping lunch so I can have two in the evening time to replicate what I Normally do with dinner and dessert. On day 6 and feel better today haven't woke up with a hunger pain or headache and I've lost 8 lbs! Weigh in on Monday so hoping for 10 lbs at least for first week! Fingers crossed. Going out tonight but made myself designated driver so I can't drink... Let's hope my plan works!!! How's everyone else been getting on?

    Sorry for the late reply....I had started Saturday last week but had a health scare Monday which meant loads of tests at the hospital which scared the life out if me. I was really blasé about it to start but once I weathered it completely threw me and I had to wait until Friday for results.....all clear but didnt stay on track, I weigh the same and am restarting tomorrow, Sunday and completely ready with no hurdles now. Well done so far, weekends are hard. Only reason I didn't start to day was because I had a bottle of wine last night and as I haven't drunk for quite a while was very hungover and bad food came my way.

    sunday I the day for me.

    well done to everyone and keep on going xxxx

    Sounds like you had a really scary week - excellent news that you are ok - I think I would have a a bottle or two after all of that going on.

    good luck for tomorrow - I'm coming to the end of day 4 - I think the hardest thing is the thought of food, it's not that I am really that hungry, it's just that I want to eat ( I like food and I enjoy wine) I think I am learning about myself and my bad habits (that I didn't realise I had until now).

    anyway - all the very best for Sunday xx and Krazzed - I hope you had a fantastic night out last night xx

    Hi thank you. I am quite proud because I didn't have a drop of alcohol or anything naughty. Hope this is reflected by the scales on Monday weigh in!

    WELL DONE :)

    Good luck for tomorrow - I feel pretty good today, just by getting Friday and Saturday night out of the way. Although I started on Wednesday my weigh in will be Friday as that's when I am next seeing my consultant, I am not going to weigh myself until then so fingers crossed I can get through next week.

    Mrs Elms - GOOD luck for today xxx

    You can do it :) I think I just definitely be in ketosis now because I feel like I have so much energy and the brain fog has lifted. Feels great. Keep going :)

    i enjoy eating too....if I sat and really thought about I am never really hungry just greedy......but this is why I think cambridge is best for me.....takes the food away until my mind and body work together.
