Unrealistic expectations

Monday, February 18, 2013      1 comments

Well, after a false start and my usual bout of SADs, it took a little while for me to get back into the swing of tracking and sticking to my calorie range but I have succeeded and am pleased to say I've now lost 9.7lbs since 2nd January. I'm fee... Read more

New beginnings

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

Monday, April 09, 2012      4 comments

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

I had to stop my hydrotherapy sessions following a trip to ER complaining of strange chest pains. I was kept in overnight and investigated for possible heart attack, however they could find no evidence for that and sent me home with an appointm... 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.

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

I've lost count of how many jobs I've applied for in the last 2 weeks! Why are recruiting agencies so difficult to deal with? emoticonRead more

A difficult week, but...

Saturday, April 02, 2011      0 comments

Well, it's been a bit of a diffcult week emotionally with losing my job because of the government cuts and I did have a mini binge on some pancakes today, but despite that I've lost nearly 3lbs. Mainly I think, because I've stopped eating... Read more

WEll, I've finally admitted to myself that I've had a really bad time over this winter with the carbohydrate cravings... part of SADs. I've put just over a stone back on since last July by eating biscuits and hot cross buns! Ouch! I haven't bee... Read more

I went to see my surgeon on Thursday and he's very pleased with my progress, although from what he said I think he thinks that I'm unlikely to lose more weight now as my weightloss has slowed right down... I think he's wrong... I plan to be the... Read more

The upside of having a tummy bug...

Friday, July 30, 2010      3 comments

Well, the last few days have been pretty horrible as I've had a nasty tummy bug. The upside is that I've lost 4 kilos in 3 days after months of plateauing, so it's not all bad I suppose... which means that I'm now 14st 12lbs and just 28lbs fro... Read more

You go all winter without so much as a sniffle, then along comes summer and bang... cough, sore throat, raging headache and a nose that drips like a tap with a washer that needs replacing! But after 7 days I can finally say I'm beginning ... Read more
