Up early and walked. Doctor came round to see husband. A very nice woman who also offered to check my blood pressure. I told her I had lost 17lb she was very unimpressed- so I have to say its nice to be encouraged by the medical profession. She couldn't take my blood pressure as I needed a bigger cuff. So fed up.

Anyway I drank my water and ate healthily but it's been the first day I have felt demotivated.

I had lovely pineapple and a quorn shepherds pie for dinner. Very very hot day here in London.

    So sorry you were not given an encouraging response when you shared your success with the doctor. Congratulations on losing 17 pounds! I applaud you. Abraham Lincoln said, "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." Stay the course!

    I agree with HOTPINK, don't ever give your power over to anyone else. Stay on the program for you and let your SP buddies inspire and motivate you when you need extra support! I think it's great you've lost 17 lbs. I keep waiting to see that 20 lb. loss but it doesn't appear. I just hold out hope and keep walking and following my program.

    I am really impressed that you have lost 17 pounds, that's more than me and I'm jealous! Drs should always carry a larger cuff, then they could perform their duty without being negative. Tomorrow is another day. Your dinner sounds delicious. Whereabouts in London are you? I'm about 40 miles to the west, but today I was in Kent!

    emoticon on your weight loss! She may of had a bad start to her day or was in pain, etc. We don't know what another person is going through unless they share with us.

    You are doing great! Don't give your power to someone else.
