3 to 4 weeks ago I was asked by a Transplant consultant to lose weight because your chances of surviveing the operation were greatly increased. He also said the only way of effectively doing this is eating less. Well beleive me you sit up and listen under these circumstances, suddenly chocolate, sweets, cakes etc just did'nt look as appealing, infact they seem to be like poison to me. The outcome so far has been very promiseing as I can actually do up my shoe laces without my belly getting in the way, I look into a mirror and the chipmonk cheeks that I blamed on the steroids have gone, my trousers feel comfortable again and my scales this morning are telling me that Iv'e lost exactally 1 stone. Yipee!!!. There is still half a stone to go for my ideal weight but I'll get there, there's no dought about it. If you are overweight and want to feel cheerful then try eating less, it really works. I hav'nt starved myself, just cut out the sugar and put a little less on the plate. Tony. I wish you all the best of health The photo is of me sat on the lawn LAST MARCH in record 25 deg of heat, Think i'll give the shorts a miss today, brrrrrrr
