I seem to have got stuck: I reached 210 pounds (15 stone), 95 kilos, three weeks ago and don't appear to have lost an ounce since despite keeping to my current diet and increasing the amount of exercise I'm taking. :tantrum:
I WILL get lower, I am determined to loose at least another 13 kilos (28 pounds).
Diabetes review this morning, and I am Sister Ali's star patient: weight down; blood pressure down; cholesterol, liver and kidney function all fine; blood sugar level finally (after eight months) in the normal range, albeit the high end.
So it's keep on doing what I'm doing and taking my medication, lose some more weight, and hopefully the blood sugar will slowly reduce even further.
I must admit I feel fit and well, just the little niggles we all get as we age.
I keep forgetting to weigh myself, but the weight has continued to slowly drop off. I weighed myself this morning for the first time in a month and was pleasantly surprised to find I now weigh 90 kilos. That's 199 pounds, or 14 stone 3 pounds in English.
I'm well chuffed. :grin:
That's great news Phil ~ well done ~ and I'm sorry Steve, it must be frustrating because we know you want to loose the weight, and have tried so hard, I hope something can be done to help you in this day and age.
Since my sciatica started 6 weeks ago i have put on over half a stone.
But on the bright side i`m not out of breath like i used to be,my blood pressure is normal and my asthma is under control. All i need to do is get my back fixed and i will loose the extra weight i have put on.
:teeth: But i keep on laughing.
Well, that was a surprise! Back in October 2015 I was expecting a follow up appointment with Dr Tomlinson, the arrhythmia specialist in Plymouth, but it never happened. I've just had a phone call from Derriford Hospital asking if 17 October is convenient so it looks as if they're running a couple of years late. I said yes; it'll be good to have confirmation that all is OK and I'm doing the right thing. :grin:
