All-time high of 245lbs in April 2013 (morbidly obese) - my blood pressure shot up & my IBS ramped up the action (hmmm, couldn't be a connection there could there????).

Enough was enough - I looked around for a solution. Specific Carbohydrate Diet seemed to fit the bill & although a pain because it's really strict, I felt better than I had for years and the weight started coming off easily :-D

BUT, life got in the way (where have you heard that before!). I didn't send my IBS into overdrive just didn't control it as well as I had been. And that allowed my week to creep back up...........

Retired 5th June 2015 with plans to get healthier, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually! Well, I have destressed quite a bit and have done some work on my spiritual life, but IBS-wise and weight-wise I've gone backwards, such that by June 2016 I was back up to 243lbs :-(

So, here we go again........

    Kip! I lurked your page this morning to see if you were active on SP! Thanks for the biog comment! I'm needing a whiff of motivation. Ugh! Why is this yo yo dieting such a reality? Makes me wonder about underlying issues. What's up with me? Good to hear from across the river! emoticon

    No I've not made 24 hour yoghurt. I think it's a bit time consuming and complicated! I will try and find out what exactly the problem is. If it's a lactose intolerance I will probably have a go at yoghurt making!

    Hi! I added you as a friend. I've been on the beat Candida diet for 7 weeks, losing weight at over 2 pounds per week. But today I discovered that what I'm doing isn't enough and am currently looking into GAPS and SCD and going totally grain free!...

    I am also English, a Christian, and walk for exercise (although not much since I started the BC diet as I don't feel it right to over exert myself. Losing enough weight as it is!)

    Current weight 14 st 0.75 pounds. Goal (possibly interim goal) 10 st 10.

    As with you, number 1 goal is to get healthy.

    So glad I found you. :-)
