    i know i'm still a decent way from goal, but i am thinking about working up the plans now and thinking that i will actually miss my soups/shakes when i come off CD totally....

    am i alone in this because i LOVE my shakes/soups.....A LOT?

    You're not alone - I will miss the bars! - so much so I've asked my CDC if I can still buy them from her when I'm done :)

    However, it's not so much madness/weird dependency as part of 'a plan'. I used to have protein bars and shakes way back before CD and know they work for satisfying cravings and keeping the metabolism going in a much healthier way than crisps or a Danish pastry. The CD bars come in a better range of flavours than Promax, Myoplex or other varieties of meal bar
    - hence why I would like to keep a stock of them. They're not dissimilar in price to those either. I'll miss the toffee and walnut shake a lot too!

    I will miss the potato and leek soup, its my favourite. Suppose I could buy another brand from supermarket, or even better, make it myself.
    Otherwise, just hoping that I will settle into a healthy eating regime.

    i will be continueing with a shake every morning for breakfast, i cannot stomach breakfast naver been able to but i love the choc shake on a morning so will always have this then a lunch and tea, i used to skip meals somedays b4 cd so if i have a day where i skip i may have a chicken and mush soup, i will always keep my spare blender in boot of car and the odd cd pack then if im starving that will be my lunch, at least then if i strugggle i wont have to get used to them again, after a year of maintaining i will try to drop them xx

    I thought I'd miss the vanilla shakes when I finished last time but couldn't stand them at the end because I only wanted food that tasted 'normal.' May feel different this time around.

    I'll miss the fact that they're so easy to make up and there's no thinking involved.

    But I wont miss the shakes. I've just had my first porridge today and had to give it to my dog! It was so salty. Did anyone else find this? I think a lot of them are either too sweet or too salty, and I love sweets and salt normally.
    Right now I'm only having choc shakes (made with ice water) and choc tetras (made up with hot water) and the odd leek and potato.

    I'm definitely going to be sick of them.

    I do not intend to miss them if i can, as i love the spicy tom soup so much i would like to continue having them, as well as the cranberry bars, not as meals but for when life is busy and as a snack, as i think its still a great way to top up with vits etc. I know for a fact that, try as hard as i might, i will not always be able to get the balanced diet i need every single day. My cdc says she has still done this on maintenance.

    I missed the choc tetras.

    Now as a CDC I have the products, I thought I might be tempted by them again, but normal food vs the products...well, no contest.:D

    i think its more that i just really like that taste of them! I would much prefer a CD shake to a milkshake now...but then again, saying all that, i might change my mind once i start back on food again! lol

    just relieved to know i'm not a freak! lol :D

    Well I can't stand milkshakes, never have, but love the choc tetras. When most people are worrying about having sneaked a bit of this or that, it's more likely I've sneaked an extra tetra.

    I might see my CDC once a month to get some.

    At the moment I think I will miss the choc shakes and at the moment I think that I would have them now and again, but in reality it might be diffent. I also think I will still get the choc bars are I love them and whilst more expensive than chocolate they do satisfy a sugar craving. I have stopped having soups so just have choc shakes and choc tetras.

    Mind you, if cottage cheese tasted like nirvana after 12 weeks I wonder what fruit will taste like once I get there???
