    Hi All, I'm new to this forum and am starting the cambridge diet tomorrow. Going to the CDC tonight to collect the packs. Actually quite excited to be starting after looking at the inspiration photos. I've got about 6 stone to lose and I know that its going to be a long battle. My husband needs to lose about 2 stone so he is going to do it with me - basically to give me support as well.

    How do I get one of those weight loss tickers?

    yeah 1st well done for joining here
    i start cd tomorrow aswell i`m seeing my cdc tonight
    we can lose together
    i need to lose 10 stone :eek: yikes that sounds so much

    if you want a ticker just click on someone elses it will take you to the site
    once htere you chose the ticker you want
    then you have to copy the url code and paste it back in your signature

    think i got that right

    Good luck Andrea on your weight loss journey - any help you need just SHOUT! and someone will come along and try to help.

    CD is a great diet - one of the easiest .... and hardest diets but there are some great inspirational photos and diaries on here.

    Hi

    I'm a re-starter but fairly new to CD having tried LL in the past which was great but couldnt afford it long term. I'm 36, 2 kids, unsupportive hubby but gr8 mates. Fantastic people on here and there always has been.
    I have 3st to lose - I want to lose most of it over the next 12 wks :) :) :) :) :) :) .
    Good luck to you both - I'm only a few days in but already feeling the benefit of 5-6l of water & my packs xxxx

    Hi Andrea this link will show you how to set up your tracker.

    You may be surprised how quickly the weight comes off, if you stick to it 100% you can expect to lose around 1 stone a month, if you are lucky maybe a little more.
    Good luck for your appointment, having hubby do it too will be a great help.

    Hey Kaz I also have "a person" to lose it does seem awfully daunting, but dont let it put you off. I look at it a stone at a time, this way it builds up nicely and seems much easier to keep focused.

    Hey Andrea, congratulations on "taking the plunge". You'll get great results with CD and be amazed at how quickly you and everyone else sees the results.

    Once you get through the first 3/4 days just stick with it. There's always someone round here to help keep you motivated, the support is fantastic and I know without it I would have been struggling.

    You'll reach your goal in no time. Good luck;)

    Well got weighed last night and it was just as I thought. 15st 9lb. That is the heaviest I've ever been but I suppose I should just look at it as being the last time I will be that weight.

    For some reason I didn't sleep that well last night - could I have been excited about starting on the plan today??? Had my first tetra shake at work and have been glugging the water.... Still feeling positive, long may it continue.:)

    The first few days are the worst, but take painkillers as normal if required, keep on with the water and pamper yourself, bubble baths, paint your nails, anything to keep you busy and cheer you up a bit. Go to bed early too if that helps, I had a couple of early nights over my first week but it helped and I got through it. Just remember it won't get any worse than this cos you'll start to feel better and when you see the weight coming off that'll really cheer you up!!

    Good luck:rolleyes:
