    right my weekend of eating is finally coming to an end and i have my shakes lined up for tomorrow!
    im so excited but i know the hunger is gonna hurt so much! lol

    just another question please :)

    after eating so much crAp for so many years, and after 9 months of pregnancy hormones, my skin has ended up such a mess.
    it has on and off days of being oily, then dry, then combi.

    has anyone found their skin to be in better condition when they have been on CD?

    All the water will make your skin glow, my did and my hair and nails inproved no end as well. I re- start cd tommorow so we will be at the same stage. I have been through this before having lost 5 stones from my heaviest so if you have any questions , over the next few days just ask. I will probaly be on the forum a lot to keep me away from temptation! LOL

    hiya kim,

    i have noticed real improvements in both my skin and my nails.
    the biggest key however is to drink plenty of water as i have noticed my skin goes dry if i dont drink enough but as long as i keep my fluids high i have improved skin.
    would also like to welcome you to the world of shakes, gl with ur first week, hang in there, it can be tough but the rewards are great :)

    I have been on the Cambridge before and am starting back today. I found that my skin really improved, i have know spots and my complection went to a naturally looking healthy glow. However in the first week i noticed my skin was a little worse than normal but i think this was done to the impureaties coming out of my body (think i spelt that wrong impureaties lol) Anyway im wishing you luck, coming back to it is harder than starting for the first time. So keep it up once you start. If you wanna eat go an do something nice eg: Have a relax bath, read a box, paint your nails, shave your legs, tidy the house, anything that you find distracts you. The first couple of days are the worst. I found that after the first couple of weeks i missed chewing, but i think having the bars where what made me fail. Everyone has there different ways of getting through the weight lose. my goal is my holiday in July. Im sure you will do fab. Good luck. Oh an your skin will be glowing in know time.

    Hi kim

    Hows it going hun? I have had a banana for brekfast and a chilli for lunch with a couple of splashes of tabasco sauce(chilli addict ) and so far so good . Drinking plenty , I filled up a 2 litre clear plastic jug with a lid I bought form Asda as I dont like it it really cold so I leave it in the kitchen and every time I walk past I pour myself a little glass , and its going down a treat so far, it helps that I can see it going down I think. Keep strong and if you need anything just shout.

    Day one for me, just wanted to say good luck with it all!

    I had Choc shake this morning which wasn't bad.

    just about to do spicy tomato for lunch.

    Water going down slowly, have got the water flavourings but the book said not to have these for 2 weeks.
