yes. i did it after cd, had an ok loss first week, then crap losses the next 2 weeks and got fed up and gave up. my trick this time is not weighing for a month. i think it's very hard going from cd losses to 'normal' diet losses and your expectations have to change. you need to stick with it a bit longer and accept that your body has a lot of adjusting to do. a lot will be water i'm sure. let us know how you get on. hang on in there and good luck. this diet does work cos it has worked for me before. you just gotta stick with it xx

This time last year i was 11 1/2 stone and the year before that i was 10 1/2 st.

Hi Dawn

SW really does work!! I think Jen is right about not weighing for a month though. That way when you do weigh you will really notice the weight loss!

Before I was vegetarian I did the Red plan and didn't lose any weight at all. Then I did the Green plan and lost 2 stone. I guess it is different for all of us.

Good luck, I am sure you will do really well.

Me! Me!
I had the tuna nicoise salad and the spinach lasagne, both were gorgeous and had loads left over too.
I've bought the ingredients for the quorn chilli & cheesy potato wedges and the mediterranean vegetable roast. Mealtimes will be so much more fun (after months on CD)

I thought 12 sheets of pasta was to many for my dish so only used 6. Very filling and lasted us 2 nights.
