    Hi guys

    This is it day 1 on Cd. Managed half a litre of water so far and just had my first shake (strawberry) not too bad a little powdery but ok.

    I've tried WW, SW Rosemary connelly and managed to lose weight on all of them but put it all back on and more. So I figured the only thing that is going to keep me motivated is fast weight loss and decided on CD.

    I feel this is last chance saloon for me, it has to work.

    I'm feeling positive and all the success stories really are inspiring. I have approx 5.5 stone to lose so it's gonna be a while before I look good in a pair of skinny jeans but I'm gonna set myself small goals along the way.

    First goal to lose 10% of my bodyweight 22lbs.

    Hi there Lisamarie,
    :welcome:

    I too have tried WW but because you can see results quicker on this diet I have found that I havent strayed (so far - in week 3).
    I am sure you will find this site as useful and inspiring as I do.

    If your shakes are a little powery try blending them with a hand mixer. Tesco does a great one for under £5.

    Thanks everyone for your suportive comments. I feel ok up to now managed 1.5 litres of water so far and a black coffee to warm me up. I'm peeing for England and got a bit of a fuzzy head but other than that I'm fine.

    Well done for taking the plunge! The peeing for England thing will calm down a bit once your body gets used to the extra intake of water, as will the fuzzy head. You may want to have a couple of early nights to get you through the first few days - stops you eating and makes you feel better too.
    Good luck hun. xx

    Best of luck with CD.

    I am onto week 4 already and I feel fantastic. Have to say I really enjoy this diet and once you are into ketosis, you'll not feel hungry at all.

    You will be amazed when you have your first weigh in. I think the first week is the hardest but it does get a lot easier.Good luck.

    It is a great diet and unlike all that you've mentioned the diet is fast if you stick with it 100%, and that's what makes it so motivating - seeing your clothes fall off you and dropping dress sizes so quickly.

    Good luck with the rest of your journey and keep the positive attitude - it really helps!

    Good luck LisaMarie, I am just coming to the end of wk1 and apart from some fuzzy heads and a sleepless night last night I've been fine, in fact I feel better now than before I started it and my trousers are falling off :D

    This site is brill, great folk and lots of useful info to find. If you can't find it then someone will either know the answer or point you in the right direction.
    I'm week 2 now, struggle at times with wanting to nibble on stuff, but so far so good. The porridge is a godsend for me. I think without that I might have caved in and eaten.
