In Recovery
Friday, July 29, 2016      5 comments

Well it's been quite a while since I was last here. My job was cut in a reorganisation in September and I haven't been able to find another one yet. The stress and anxiety caused by that and dealing with the DWP has severely affected my mental h... Read more

I've felt for a long time that I have a problem with bread. When I eat it I feel bloated and I also crave it all the time. I don't believe that it's a problem with the wheat itself because I get the bloating and craving whatever type of flo... Read more

Up until now my starting weight has always been set at 396 lbs, my original starting weight. Today I have reset the weight loss tracker to 275 lbs, what I was on 01/01/15. I feel I need to stay in the present and not make excuses for not l... Read more

Well, I saw the x-ray of my hip yesterday... Shocking! I have no hip joint, it's totally crumbled and gone! The surgeon said for someone my age it's bad and he doesn't know how I'm still walking around on it and that I must be more stoic than I ... Read more
New beginning

Last year was a hell of a rollercoaster. Constant worry about my job, I got ripped of by my niece and broke my arm. But I also passed my AAT Level 2 and am studying for my Level 3 Diploma, I have my brother, my friends still love and God is stil... Read more
Unrealistic expectations
Monday, February 18, 2013      1 comments

I know I've had some health issues over the last 18 months but I've come to the realisation that part of the reason I put weight back on is because I didn't like how my body looked after I lost the weight. I think primarily because my expectatio... Read more

Well, the last year has been a tough one. With the constant job application rejections I've been feeling very down so my weight has gradually crept back up due to my comfort eating too many biscuits and hot-cross buns. However, that's over ... Read more
Chair exercises

It's really hard to find aerobic chair exercises on DVD over here in the UK but I've finally got my hands on a copy of Jodi Stolove's sit down & tone up encore. It's a moderately paced seated aerobics routine using light weights and lasts ... Read more

Well I'm booked in for 6 weeks of hydrotherapy from the 25th. Basically exercises in the pool. I plan to continue going to the swimming pool afterwards if I can get someone to come with me as I need help getting dressed afterwards.... Read more
New year, new start.

I don't usually make new year resolutions because I feel that they tend to be too general and it is difficult to assess whether or not you have actually achieved them, so I have set some specific goals for myself this year. 1) I will contro... Read more
Another minor complication
Tuesday, October 18, 2011      1 comments

After suffering severe stomach cramps and diarrhoea for the last 10 days it looks like I am lactose intolerant. I'm now on an elimination diet and will shortly be trying to establish what my tolerance level is. A side effect of that is that... Read more
Tracking again.
Monday, September 12, 2011      3 comments

Over last winter my weight gradually crept up by 10lbs and then when I lost my job I got into the toast and biscuits zone and it crept up another 8 lbs. It took a while for me to bring my urge to binge back under control but my weight's now been... Read more
