Starting CD 1 month before christmas

Hi everyone
I am on CD (only2 days) was wondering if anyone has started their diet at around the same time as me as it would be nice to help each other over the christmas period and into the next year.
Also I was wondering if there is anyone that may have started last year around the same time and how they managed over the festive hols?.

Just wanted to say good luck on your cd journey, there will always be an "occasion" not to start a diet so good for you in starting and trying to deal with it ,xxxx
Hi Donna. I started last week. Found it difficult on Day 4 but it paid off. I lost 14.5 lbs so it's definitely worth it. Good luck x

Thanks Donna, CD definately does work and in the blink of an eye it can be you too. Enjoy the ride, it's wonderful!

Hey Slimangel -

I'm currently at the end of week 3, and I've purposely done this to take the xmas period head on.
I have...
- Xmas Department Party
- Company Xmas Party
- Swanky Cocktail party in the city
- Xmas Day
- Boxing Day

The way i see it, after this december... If I ever get the urge to binge after my 100 days are up, I'll just remember my december and change my mind.
As for xmas day, IceMoose says in his blog "Why ruin it for a glorified Sunday dinner!?" - Wise words :)

I started CD last monday and its going well at the minute i hope it stays that way, im not really sure what is best to do for christmas dinner just yet me and my CD counsellor are going to talk about it nearer the time i think, it would be great to chat to everyone and record weightloss with each other as its nice to have other people to talk to regardly struggles and celebrations etc

Hi Donna, I'm 4 weeks in now and loving CD - nearly 2 stone gone forever! My husband is also doing CD with me and we have pledged not to blow out at Christmas, our boys (3&1) are very accepting of the fact that mummy and Daddy are eating differently for a while and so we will just be having AAMW for christmas, though the portion size on the day might be more like 790!

We see this as our last fat Christmas and its a small price to pay for seeing our boys grow up!

Well done for taking on CD and good luck on your journey
