    Hello all I'm new here my name Emma and I'm 22 and a full time student at Uni. I was recently the heaviest I have been at 13st and only 5'1. My goal is to get to 9st. I started the Cambridge Diet SS last Saturday after being inspired to finally take action regarding my weight by you wonderful people on Minimims. So far I'm doing well no cheating despite my friend consuming a pizza in front of me on my first day!!! and the urge to lick a picture of a lamb shank in a magazine I was reading lol. So please wish me luck on my weightloss journey.
    Lots of Love Emma

    Hello all, I've been doing this diet for a month now but still havent introduced myself to everyone else apart from Team 3! So hello to everyone!

    I'm Kate, living in Ireland with my husband and 3 children (one 3 yr old and 6 mnth twins) and so far I've lost 20lbs on ss Cambridge Diet. I'm enjoying it to a degree, find it strangely satisfying cooking for the rest of the family but then sulk when they eat it!

    Thats about it from me,

    I'm finding it ok during the day although I'm going to ask my counseller if I can swap my packets as I've run out of chocolate mint which was dreamy. I also had the fruits of the forest and the vegtable/potato and leek soup whitch I don't like at all. The only real problem I've had is hunger pangs at night whitch have made it harder for me to fall asleep and some tiredness during the day but I can't drink black tea/coffee so assume this is due to having no caffine in my diet. Also keep wondering if I'm in ketosis everywhere I've been doesn't have the sticks? And am unsure if my breath is bad as I am a smoker lol. How are you finding it?
    Lots of love Emma xxx

    Hi Joe Thanks for the post. Actually last night so night of day 4 I actually fell asleep quite quikly infact so far today has been good so far no hunger pangs fingers crossed. So now that I'm feeling better within myself I'm going to start exercising again aim to do about half an hour a night. I still miss food but think its the taste of food I'm missing rather than it being hunger. And I can already see a difference in my body my waist has definatly decresed a bit but being an hourglass shape this is where I always lose weight first I can't wait for it to start shifting off my legs and hips though. How are you finding it so far Joe?
    Lots of love Emma xxx

    :8855: That's hilarious. It's lucky I went to the loo not long ago, or I'd have wet myself!!

    Anyway, now that I have calmed down and the blood is returning from by head back to the parts where is should be....

    Well done with starting CD. Good luck and maybe join in on this thread if you like:
