    Hi guys

    I should hopefully be starting cd very soon and I'm really nervous about it all. I've been reading some of your posts over the last couple of days and I was wondering if anybody else was nervous at first. Or am I just being silly??

    You'll be fine - any change we make is nerve-wracking but CD is so worth it

    I was nervous to begin with, I couldn't even call the CDC at first! But I have to say I'm so glad I did.
    Now I'm not dropping half stones at a time like some, but the weight is coming off, unlike on other diets I've tried. (I've not got loads to lose though in comparison, so thats likely why.)

    Prepare for it to be like a rollercoaster, an exciting build up, likely followed by a drop (The first week is hard at times.) then that high you get when you know you've done it and it wasn't so scary in the end!

    hi,
    like you im due to start soon all bieng well.
    im nervous , but excited that im finally doing something.
    when are you due to start ?
    with us starting at the same time (roughly), we could support each other.
    ive started the prep today, carrying my water bottle around everywhere, its like having another baby ! as a result i have developed a close friendship with the loo. im thinking of moving the tv up there , it has to be easier.

    HI

    I'm restarting today having just seen a horrendous photo of myself at a party last weekend and can't belive I've let myself get this big
    so feel really nervous that i'll find I can't stick to it again as I desperately don't want another photo looking like that.

    Though this time I do feel more motivated and prepared mentally so hope to succeed (photo is safely stored in my wallet as a constant reminder).
    The before and after photos on here are really motivating too so will be looking at them whenever I feel a wobble approaching. I'm mainly nervous as I do all the cooking in my house and have found that the hardest part previously, so this time i've made a list of food/meals that I can give or take and i'm going to cook them this week for the family - that way I won't care i'm not eating.

    Good Luck with it all - it would be great to hear how you're doing

    I didnt find the weighing in or the diet itself as nerve wracking as I knew my weight already and my CDC was very good on the phone, as well in the flesh.

    I have found some of it hard going, but I am sticking with it and trying to visualise myself thinner and how I may look come Xmas.

    But good luck anyway, hunny - think you are on the right track :)
