Okay so I start the Cambridge Diet today. Never done it before, have tried to diet previously, but I've always done it on my own...and failed. Quite miserably.
So, I WILL lose at least 3 stone by February. Ideally 3 and a half stone. I'm currently 5'8 and 170lbs. My goal is 120lbs. A glorious 8 and a half stone. And a size 8ish I think.
Will probably be posting in here a lot, as I've already - about three times today and its only two o'clock - thought "hmmm....bored. go down to the kitchen and get food" before I realised what I was doing and stopped. But thankfully I have my OH who I have already instructed to not let me have any food whatsoever, no matter how hungry I am or how much I beg.
:D

Wishing you lots and lots of luck on the Cambridge diet its very very workable and WORKS!

Isnt that a very low bmi to be aiming for? :) Take each 7 pounds at a time...and make them workable goals rather than see the big final end lol

All the best!

Hi there walkers, wishing u luck with ur journey, i thought however that a healthy bmi was between 20-25 and that once ur bmi falls below the lower limited u werent allow to continue with the diet< Correct me if im wrong as i can be pretty dizzy at times!!!!

thisisit120lbs - i'm sole sourcing till i get down to a bmi of 25, then starting to introduce food :) how are you finding it?

jules75 - apparently you're right, lol, i just went to see my CDC and she said she has to make sure i'm at a healthy weight and anything below 20 is considered unhealthy on the CD. But otherwise a BMI of 18.5 is healthy. So its unhealthy on the CD and healthy off it, lol. So I'm aiming for a BMI of 21 now, best change the stats, lol.

mrsessex - yeah my CDC talked it through with me and I thought I should listen as she knows best :)

jules75 - that seems like a pretty good plan :) i might do that when i've lost a little, how much did you lose in your first week? :)

good luck new starters! so far am loving CD (althought have got the friday night feeling tonight and am resisting wine...! am only human). I have lost 1 stone and half a pound in 26 days and I have not struggled half as much as I thought i would. Think others (those who know about me doing it) are struggling with me not eating more than me! we are a nation of feeders! you can do it!!

thisisit120lbs - ooh, I like that statement, I shall be on a mission too, I want to look absolutely fabulous for the best ever NY!

walkerscrisps - not sure about that one, I live on my own so there is no food here, even a box of chocs and a bottle of wine (a gift for me given a couple of days after I started CD - from an elderly relative that didn't know my diet plans) is being kept at a local friend's place because I cannot be trusted.
I would be interested in hearing the advice for this one!
