Slimming world!

Hi Lovlies!

So today the husband and I joined up to slimming world (30/03/2017).  We first had a chat with the consultant.  She ran through the plan with us and the do's and do not's.  Then we were weighed.  Right now I weigh 185.1kg (29st 2lb or 408lbs)  This means Ive lost 1stone 4lbs since starting this weight loss experience.  (I hate the word "journey")

 The slimming world plan seems quite a easy plan to follow and seems to concentrate on eating protein more than carbs.  You can have unlimited lean meats, which pleased the Mr very much!  We've done slimming world before and it was quite a successful experience.  But like most things I got so far and then got despondent and gave up. 

This time I intend to go and follow the plan until I have the gastric bypass.  This gives me the best chance of being as healthy as it is possible for me to be before the surgery.  Ive set myself a goal of losing two stone.  That maybe doesn't seem a lot to most people but to me that is a achievable amount of weight to lose before my next appointment at the Luton and Dunstable clinic in June.

  Can I do it?  Of course I can!  I'm motivated and I have the support around me to do it.  It is the right time in my life to make the change.  I can do this!

Speak to you soon

Ive been poorly, but good news!

Hi everyone!

I'm sorry its been such a long time since I posted.  I caught pneumonia and ended up in hospital for 3 weeks! (one of those in intensive care)   It was a horrid experience one I don't intend to repeat.  The hospital staff were amazing and treated me so well.  I'm so grateful for our wonderful NHS service!

Well now to my news!  I went for my review appointment at the Luton and Dunstable hospital.  In the 23 days I was on the milk diet I lost 1 stone (14lbs)  Although I was expected to lose another half stone, Ive been approved for surgery on the understanding that I lose the other half stone before seeing the surgeon.  I now have a appointment for June to see the surgeon and anaesthetist.  I am looking forward to the appointment and from the research Ive done it appears that the surgery takes place about twelve weeks after the surgeons appointment.  This takes me to the end of august/early September.  Its exciting to think I will have my surgery before Christmas.  Its going to change my life.

In the interim my husband and I will be joining slimming world.  I want to lose as much weight as possible before my surgery so that I'm as healthy as I can possibly be before surgery and losing weight can only help this.

Well hats all the news from me.  I hope you are doing well on your weight loss journey and would love to hear your experiences.  Please comment below!

Bye for now
