    hello, hope you dont mind me gate crashing!!!!
    ive been doing cambridge diet for 8 weeks ive lost just under 3 stone, and i think its a fab diet as its given me the kick up the ar** ive needed ....however its getting to the point where i can no longer resist food.....and rather than just blow all the hard work ive done im thinking of changing onto SW. i have done it b4 so have all the books etc etc , i think my heart wasnt in it b4 and i wasnt motivated enough....but my big losses over the last 8 weeks have spurred me on.....
    i dont want to go to a class, i cant see the point in paying over £4 a week when its only me im competing with or letting down.....
    however i do feel i need the support of a group and i think this web site will prvide that for me.....
    i noticed you have a thread for syns values....is that just someone with a book or a SW leader???
    So the big question....when i swap....can i join your gang????
    ive got abut a weeks worth of cd stuff left...i may change my mind come next week as i really wanted to loose 4 stone b4 xmas....

    thankyou......im still torn between the 2.....i love cd as it is a real morale boost and i know as soon as i start eating ill put some on....but ive had a bad week this week and im suffering for it....im going to stick to mainly red days if i do it, i have found that cutting out the carbs on cd has really made me feel a whole lot better.....i have a wheat intolerance which ive ignored for years and wow have noticed the difference by not eating it....so so bread pasta etc for me!!!

    i have read the south beach diet book also ....thats pretty much high protein low carb....not like atkins thou....the first 2 weeks is a tough regime but then you have bread and other carbs twice a week....veg etc still free and nuts etc...think i know where i am with sw thou....but no green days for me!!!

    i needed to loose weight quick for a job....the job has and hasnt paid off so to speak my goal was 4 1\2 stone by dec but they have moved the goal posts so im not in so much of a hurry.
    cd is a good diet and i have found it easy up to now as you dont have to think about food ....althou i do have a meal aday!!! you dont feel hungry on it either...its given me the motivation i need as i love being slimmer and its not taken months to do it...only fear is as soon as i do start eating i will put some on....
    ive got about a weeks worth of shakes etc left....i am going to weigh in on thurs and make my decision then....i know if i do stick to cd i WILL be 4 1\2 stone lighter....then its just a case of keeping it off.....im so low at the moment with my job etc ...all i want to do is eat!!!!! but its still forbidden food on sw that i want to munch on!!!!!!
