    well I have contacted my local CDC so first step out the way,, next step, my parents!!! I know they are going to totally disagree to this diet big time!!! :break_diet:
    I was going to go for the but my mum can do it with me do it as a team as that might sway my mum :D, but if they disagree ill just be so upset and angry as this is something i really want to do for myself :mad:!
    What do I do!!!

    If you wait until you have all the info to show them I think that would be best,as people do not understand the diet and you need to be able to have all the answers to hand.Good luck

    I know how you feel. My parents think CD is "silly" and is not a "long term answer". I told my mum last night that I was starting CD again next week and actually she was okay. I just explained that I'm not going to make a big deal out of it and it's something that I am doing for me. People do have a hard time understanding it like andju said. Once they see you are happy and doing well I'm sure they will be okay. Good luck on your CD journey x

    Do you have to tell your Family??
    Why not wait until you have lost some weight and let them comment to tell them.
    I had the same thing with my Parents when I decided that I was having a gastric band. They stuck by me through it all, but I know at the beginning they had their concerns.

    I did it for 2,5 weeks and lost like 7kg ... Then my mum desperately wanted to start too and started the next time we went to see our CDC ;-)

    Results before persuasion is a veeeeery good tactic :) Some people may be sceptical and seeing results on you might persuade them better than words can :p
