Started CD today!!!

#1
Hi everyone! I've started my CD today. I've got 4 stone to lose and this is the year i'll do it!!! I had CD porridge 4 brekkie and i'm having leek and potato soup 4 lunch. I expect my enthusiasm wont be so strong after a couple of days, but so far, so good.
I'd love a diet buddy that's starting the same time as me so we can cheer each other on. Is any one else starting CD now?

Aww thanks - 4 months is nothing though compared to some of the folks on here! Believe me when you see how the weight drops off at the rate it does willpower doesn't come into it ;)

Good luck on your 1st day, 1/2 down 1/2 to go :)

Hi, I started yesterday and am going well other than hating the soups so going to stick to shakes!!

I have around 5 stone to lose so determined to do this. I'm glad your going well. My first day was fine and today is going really well, just really shakey, but no headaches or dizziness. Fingers crossed it stays that way.
I'd be more than happy to have a buddy as family are all really supportive but are all skinny mini's so just dont understand!!!

anyway, keep going and good luck

Hi Sarah Lou, its great you have started, i'm coming to the end of my second day and its been ok, alittle more difficult today as have to feed my little boy but ok. I'm determined to do this as i get married in october and have booked/bought most things but haven't even bothered to look for a dress as i know i cant fit into most on the samples in the shop right now!!! I just want to be a size 14 by April as that is the latest I can order a dress.
I'm planning on logging on most nights as I am usually a night eater so I need to keep ocuppied, so i'll keep you posted. Good luck and keep going.

Hiya Jen, I started yesterday too - AND I'm getting married in Sept.... so have exactly the same feelings as you on this whole thing!! MUST be slim for the dress. Am having my measurements taken in Feb so I don't have long. We can do this! xxx

Well done with your first day. I'm starting tomorrow with just over 4.5st to shift.. Looking forward to it but just need to get thru the first week!! Hope day2 goes well for you.

well, i'm off to bed so thats day 2 over. Alittle shaky today but i'm ok. It's going fast really and i really can't wait for my weigh-in on sunday (a day early but can't do monday) to keep me motivated. Hope all of you are doing ok and good luck to those starting soon.

Diddums, well done for getting this far, you've actually decided to change your life! I'm on day 2 and this is nowhere near as hard as i thought it would be! If i see food now i just see extra calories getting in the way of me losing weight, and NO food is gonna taste as good as me being 4 stone lighter!!! I cant wait! Good luck to you and when you start we can climb this mountain hand in hand together! x

God i have had a hard day. I had a really low point, lots of sadness, feeling really cold and generally feeling like giving up. Its day 3 for me so from the posts i have read i did expect a hard day but i was shocked as i have been pretty untouched by any side effects up to now.
I am really proud of myself for staying strong and finding emergency stratgies to keep me focused. I split my afternoon shake so i had shorter times between tasting something other than water!!! and I spent the day on the internet looking at wedding dresses because, ultimatly that is why I am doing this, to fit into any dress i want not one that doesn't make me look fatter!!!!!

It has passed now and i feel much more calm and focused so just wanted to say that sticking it out feels wonderful and well worth it. Good luck girls, we can do it x
