This fall and winter I have set myself some different goals. As I usually crave carbs due to the cold and my SAD it's hard for me not to gain weight rather than lose. So I decided to go with it albeit to keep within my calorie range but not to f... Read more
Seasonal affective disorder tip that may help others as well as me
Saturday, October 13, 2018      8 comments

I've finally figured out what is wrong with me lately. I've been craving and bingeing on starchy carbs in the late afternoon and evening and put some weight back on. I thought it was my eating disorder due to the stress and anxiety of going thro... Read more
Good news!

I haven't blogged much recently because I've been in a lot of pain with my hip and back plus I've been dealing with a review of my disability benefits resulting in a flare up of my eating disorder which I've now finally got back under control. A... Read more
Going well
Saturday, April 21, 2018      6 comments

Finally! The sun has come out, my eating plan is going well and I'm feeling more energised and happier. I'm definitely in summer mode as far as my SAD is concerned needing far less sleep, currently about 6 hours a night as opposed to 9 and wakin... Read more
Easier than I thought

I'm happy to report that giving up meat has been far easier than I thought it would be this time around and I'm really not missing it. It helps that my brother has also gone fully vegetarian at the same time and that I have a good understanding ... Read more

I have decided to stop eating meat for health reasons. By the end of this month I expect my home to be a meat free zone for humans anyway. To be honest since I used to be vegetarian in my 20s and still eat and enjoy a lot of vegetarian food... Read more

I've really been suffering from the cold weather over the weekend. My hip and back have been aching really badly and very painful, so much so that I couldn't sleep on Saturday night and got up at 3am to have something to eat so I could take some... Read more

Well, I finally got an adapter for my exercise bike and started using it 3 days ago. I've started off with light resistance for 5 minutes and will gradually increase the time by a minute every few days so long as I'm not feeling any real pain in... Read more
How long...

I can't believe I am still waiting for that adapter, it's driving me crazy. I've called the supplier twice and they've finally said they will send another one out and I should have it by the end of this week... I can only hope! Anyway, I to... Read more

Only 0.2lb weight loss at my last weigh-in on Friday but I'm OK with that. So long as I'm not gaining I'm happy and I have lost 42lbs in less than 4 months so my body is probably just taking a breather. I also finally got my new exercise bi... Read more

I was very surprised when I weighed in yesterday morning to have achieved my 42lb lost goal 3 days early. My weight plateaued last week so I wasn't expecting it. I celebrated by throwing some more clothes out. I've also ordered a new semi-r... Read more
Hunger signals
Saturday, January 06, 2018      3 comments

I've been reading an article on "normal" eating and now realise I do experience "hunger" but not in the way other people usually do since my gastric bypass. The normal body response to hunger is: rumbling, unpleasant stomach contractions (h... Read more

So, since I've lost nearly 3 stone and gone down about 2 1/2 sizes I decided today that it was time for a closet clearout. So far I've sorted through 2 closets and amassed four big black bags of stuff including coats, jumpers, blouses, t-shirts,... Read more
Overconfidence comes before a fall

OK, the good news is that I've lost another lb this week taking my total to 39lbs or 2st 11lbs so far. In general my strategy over the holiday has worked for the most part. The bad news is that I had a mini binge of almost 1000 calories on ... Read more
Pleasant surprise - goal exceeded!

Well I did what I planned to do on Christmas day, I didn't plan ahead on my tracker. I ate what I wanted throughout the day making sure I kept my portions small and I chose wisely. When I totted up what I had eaten at the end of the day I was qu... Read more
