Thumbs up Hiiii there!

So i've been lurking around here (do people even say that anymore!?) for the past few days!

I started Dr Cohen's about 5 days ago, and naturally all I've been doing is googling about this diet! This forum has been amazing - I've got lost in so many diaries - well the ones I can access.

I notice that it's been really quiet around here lately - i'm guessing that's because people are posting most of their journey on their Facebook these days!? Personally I don't really want those nosie parkers all up in my business!

Anyway - more about me, i'm from South Africa, i'm single (this part becomes important a little further down!) i'm at the Sandton Clinic, i'm finding the program pretty easy so far - i like the fact it's simple, I have learnt to prep meals, i was referred by my fertility Doctor as i'm embarking on the journey of having a baby!I have 40.8kgs to go - i couldn't resist - I jumped on the scale already!!

Hi Candice,
So how'd you go? Jumping on the scales, I mean..... I hope it was a good experience for you, but if not, take the lesson and go talk to your consultant (as you 'might' be doing something wrong).

Take a look here (from the 'stickies' for this forum):-

In there I suggest a weighin to confirm things are going right, and to give you a boost when starting out. Of course, as some replies indicate, this doesn't work for everyone, so do tailor what you do to suit YOU.

Good luck on your journey.

Just a big happy hushpuppy
I haven't "done" Cohens - Asy knows me from way back - she invited me to "take a look" here - I did, loved it, and stayed...
And me? I'm a tall skinny bloke (BMI ~23) and have been this way forever, so I haven't faced (weight-wise) what you all have !!
