    Well despite having done well with the content of my food this week, my snacking has been out of hand, plus there is still some Baileys around from Christmas and boy have I needed it this week! Once it is gone it is gone and then I can forget about it. Needless to say there was no loss and a...

    Have been to the pool 5 times in the past 7 days, walking there and back and was doing well with what i was eating. Someone cancelled an appointment at the last minute for this afternoon, so hence had unexpected time on my hands, plus frustration that I would have had a wasted 30 mile journey...

    Thanks everyone for your support - old friends and new. Will try and get round to catching up with your stories soon. Friends 50th birthday party last night so still the temptations out there. :( Fortunately there was no sweet food but I did succumb to a second helping of vegetable enchiladas...

    Happy New Year everyone. Hope you are all ok and Christmas food has not kicked you too much off track with your weight loss. I haven't been on here for a while as life knocked me for six in October and the wheels fell off. Having started the Healthy Lifestyle course (but left early as the...

    Started 12 week Healthy Lifestyle course last week. Hoping some accountability may help me get back on track! Wasn't allowed to take part until I was two years post WLS and it was my second anniversary a couple of weeks ago.

    Three weeks post varicose vein surgery and it was a bigger deal than I thought it would be. :( Mentally, emotionally and physically. It has set off my PTSD and the pain relief hasn't done my brain fog any good. Comfort eating to try and cope. Still managed to avoid the Twirl bars though...

    Weight has been gaining over past few weeks but managed to get 2lb off this week. Lots of stress on many different fronts and neighbours have been complaining to the manager about my cat who had been let into the building by someone else whilst i was out and he disturbed a lot of people. :(...

    Can Finally Say Hey!

    Have just caught up with your diary as have been off site as you know. Well done on making such a great recovery from surgery and for the loss. I understand the social anxiety - gets bouts of it myself often enough. Hopefully as your confidence builds with the weight loss you will feel able...

    Thanks Elias. Unfortunately, it is something i have done a lot in my life and it doesn't get any easier as you get older. You just know what you need to do. Coming out as non binary is just a stage on the journey for me. Neither female in my head or male in my body. In a way its a bit like...

    I am so sorry that life has dealt you and your husband such a cruel blow. You have done so well and it is a credit to you that you are maintaining rather than gaining in the face of such adversity. Lots of love surgery buddy. xx

    Well, 5 weeks with no Wifi thanks to BT, but I am now back. :) A lot has happened since I last posted. All things considered (and omitting the above) the move went well and I am settled in my new flat and starting to be able to find things without thinking about where they are. It has been...

    Thanks Emma. My only food plan for a week or so is not to get constipated! It has been the main cause of so many of my post op problems. :(

    Well, the 'all going well' came to an abrupt halt this morning as I had another fainting attack after some porridge got stuck (2nd time, 1st time last July with something different) due to low blood pressure. Not what you need when you are trying to move house! Knees very sore, flat in a mess...

    I found my body changed the most in the weeks I didn't lose, so don't get disheartened.

    Take a cushion with you for the journey home to hold against you wound. Stops it hurting as much when you go round corners!

    Aww Thanks Bling xx A fellow do'er/organiser eh! Yes, it's going well so far thanks. The decorator has now been in, it's been cleaned and awaiting a new bed to be delivered on Monday. Rest of furniture going on Thursday. In the meantime still de-cluttering, cannot believe how much stuff I...
