    I only weighed in tonight, I officially start tomorrow. I have 5 stone to lose and I plan to stick to my SS+ which my CDC said I could easily do in 4-5 months.
    Im scared only becuase of potential side effects but i think once I get over the first week, I ought to be fine with it.
    If you would like a non competitive partner and enjoy a good giggle, id love some buddy (get it) to go through this week by week :)
    Thank you xx

    my name is Kirsty by the way :)
    Im 37, mum to a 13 year old girl. Need to lose 80lbs which I can do if I am rigid by feb next year. Going to have 3 days break at Crimbo though - hello....turkey dinner?!!! LOVE it!. CDC is just the best person I have ever met - so vivacious and helpful. Tried my first shake this morning (butterscotch). Liked the tatse, didnt like the liquidy thickness but you know, in for a penny......
    Going to have soup for lunch and then as Im on SS+ Im having a hot cappucino shake for tea with 190g of fish and some spinach.
    Mentally still focussed about it and excited because I know I can do this :)
    108 days Ive worked out I have to my goal but if its less or more....well, its only half a year and thats nothing when Ive been a chunka malunka for 15 years!

    Hello Kirsty,
    Well done on deciding to this diet, it is an amazing journey as the weight will drop steadily. The people on here are amazing and all going through the same thing so keep posting and asking questions. I am on week 3 from today and feel great, I have done all the diets known and am happy to be doing this and seeing a good loss in 2 weeks. I am sure you will do it, just be good to yourself and remember why you want this when you are feeling like you cant go on, also get on here and shout for help.
    Lots of luck and look forward to seeing you on here.

    Hiya, today is my 4th day on SS+ and I lost 5lbs tonight, last got weighed a week ago :D

    Still got a good 7 stone to go yet! I'm always glad to get support and give support too - it really helps.

    I'm 23, live with my Parents & been with my Man for 3 years 7 months. Haven't got any kids, apart from a crazy cat who I love to bits and spoil rotten. I'm doing CD so I feel better about myself, will look good in *coughs* THAT *coughs* way ;) and to be able to go shopping in any shop and pick out clothes!

    good for you for starting, 5 stone, you'll lose that in no time, just stick at the first week, the first few days is the hardest but just keep at it, the way i look at it is, everytime you feel hungry or tummy rumbles, it's the fat that is leaving your vital organs and heart and it's dissapearing, all that yellow horrible fat! keep thinking bout it and drink the water.

    Hi girls
    day 5 and went wobbly. mainly cos im away from home with my daughter at my mums and have the most disgusting soupd left over (spicey tom and oriental chilli) plus I have some yukky shakes that im dying to swap. Im going back on weds (the day of my weigh in) and am left over with very few meals that i like. That Oriental Chilli tatses like oven cleaner and made me gag.

    Had shake for breaky (me love butterscotch) had 1 portion of my fish allowance for today and then by tea time I was so ravenous I could have killed.

    I discarded my other fish portion and opted for chicken of the same acceptance for the SS+ but had two tablespoons of VLF cottage cheese to give me some sanity.

    I dont think i broke a major fundamental rule as I didnt eat cake or rubbish - just went over a little of my PLUS range. Im having a shake at about 8pm and am topping myself up with tonnes of water.

    Should I be branded a bad, bad girl?

    PS: After this next week am seriously thinking of switching to Atkins - I think I can cope better with that cos at least you can eat.
    what do you say?

    i say you are only on day 5. i say that you don't get all your vital nutrients. and i also say that it's very easy when on atkins to cheat. give it another week hon. you are doing brilliantly. you'll be into ketosis. you haven't cheated. you made a valid choice. you felt you were going insane and you made a good choice to deal with that. would you have done that while on any other diet? would you have recognised what you needed to do?

    keep drinking the water. go and see your cdc early to swap your packs. this is the fastest way of getting to where you want to go, whilst retraining yourself on health and nutrition. i don't have anything against atkins. i have low-carbed many a time. but in order for it to work properly it has to become a way of life. not a diet. and i couldn't give up carbs forever and ever and gained my weight again.

    go for it :D

    Hey Chunky,
    i started LT on Oct 23rd, but I'm gonna wait untill thursday morning for my weigh in. Lt is hard as its tfr and the shakes are not good to say the least, but so far i havent tasted a morsel of food since last wed night, so i hop for a good WI.

    Anyway, best o' luck with yours, I'll keep an eye on your progress. P.S. when you have posted 50 times, you can PM.

    hey girls - i get weighed tonight. Standing on my own scales at home today has made me a happy bunny but need to make sure my scales read what CDC reads before I give you my results. Put it this way, its almost a stone.
    Day 5 was wobbly like I said and day 6 went ok - kept myself busy shopping for shoes (as we know - shoes always fit, regardless of size and its a treat for being so good)
    Its day 7, ive just had some fish for lunch with a drop of cottage cheese and although I havent been having 3 CD meals a day (cos I cant eat what I have left - mainly yukky oriental chilli and vile vanilla) I hope my CDC wont go mad with me but the weight is dropping off. I drink gazillions of water to curb my appetite.
    I dont miss the tatses of old food now, I just miss the social aspect of cooking it and enjoying it. However, as I sometimes do work on TV, I needed to lose this weight and am determined to stick with it so that I dont look twice my nomal size in future.
    I have a cut off date of Feb (my Birthday) and hope to maintian using the atkins theory.
    Loves ya xx
