    Today is the day, my cdc brought round my shakes, and so today i start my long journey to getting thin. I am aiming to get to 10 stone first and then go from there.

    I weighed myself last night and i weighed in at 13 stone 13lb, so i guess that's my start weight.

    I will put some before pics on here to start with and then during and after.

    will keep you posted.

    where can i get a ticker from? as ou all have lovely weight loss tickers

    Hi Maggie, it's great that you are starting again, can you kick my butt when i feel tempted. I am on the 790 plan. I am going to make a shake up in a bit.

    Good luck with your diet aswell, and here to the 3 stone weight loss we both need to do.

    good luck nessa and maggie. Just keep glugging the water and try to keep motivated. This diet is so hard but if you stick to it the weight will fall off quickly.

    Hi Nessa

    A great day to start the Cambridge Diet. I started a year ago today, 22nd June 2006.

    I think it's a great time to start as it's easier to drink the water and I always feel less hungry in the summer when the weather is warmer. It was lovely to have more spare time, rather than be eating and cooking all the time. I planned simple meals for the children too and left them to eat it.

    It was a great year for me. I only regret not concentrating on the maintenance stages better. So would really encourage you to do so yourself. You will see from my ticker that I have put back on but I still feel great and happily thinking back to the day I took the first step.

    Good Luck will be thinking of you this week. Give it 100% effort, it is so worth it.

    Dizzy x

    When you get close to normal weight range (around 27 bmi, I think) you stop sole sourcing and move up the Cambridge plans. Each week introducing more calories and certain foods in the correct order. If you reintroduce food correctly this stops you from piling the weight back on and helps you to learn control of your eating again. People who follow all these steps seem to be so much more likely to maintain the weight loss. Worth doing it first time around too as those who have to do the diet for a second time find it much much harder. Your first time is really your golden opportunity!;)

    Hi, maintenence is the stages after you have lost all your weight and it teaches you to introduce all different foods back into your diet in a controlled and safe way. stops you from putting all the weight on that you have lost in a week!!
