weight loss

i've seen people that are trying to lose weight i've just lost 7 stone and i need to lose another 6 stone for the first time in 11 years it hit the 20 stone mark, its been hard and really tough to keep the weight loss going is that i'm having to go through for an hernia operation hopefully soon to say i've had it don't four times already back in 1997 and 1998, it had this hernia now for 16 years and to have it done it will be great. the only two problems i have is being over weight and having server sleep apnoea that why i got another 6 stone to go, so for people that need to lose just a couple of pounds or stones think what i've got to go through so good luck to you all in your weight loss progress and let see if we can all get to our goal weight.

  • Hi bigalan,

    Wow! Well done for losing 7 stone already, that is an amazing achievement! You are over halfway there! Thank you for sharing your experience, it's very inspiring!

    I have just started my diet and need to lose 5 stone, so I have quite a long way to go too,but am feeling positive and the support and motivation on here is great!

    Best of luck with the rest of your weight loss and I am looking forward to hearing how you get on! ๐Ÿ€

  • hi Anna999 if i can lose 7 stone with 6 more to go try the slim-fast diet and i don't know whether you enjoy walking but just doing steady walking for a couple of hours each day every day but weight yourself every two weeks and keep a record of how many steps you walk i us a pedometer to start and by doing say 1000 steps then increase to 2000 then so but keep that record you will notice how quick your weight drops off keep in touch to see how you are doing. ok good luck

  • Thanks for the tips, I am following the NHS 12 week plan and have started exercising so all changes for the better! The pedometer is a good idea, I'd be interested to see how far I walk each day! ๐ŸŒผ

  • Hi Anna999 just to let you know i've now got five stone to lose i'm my 20 stone 11 1/2 pounds so not long now hope your doing great with your diet take care.

  • Keep going Alan. I've lost 7 stones and also had sleep apnoea. Since losing the weight I've now been told that my sleep apnoea has gone and I no longer require the CPAP machine. I also had quite bad sciatica and dicky knees. Since I've lost my weight both these problems has disappeared. May also have something to do with the exercise I do.

    Apart from looking and feeling much better, medical problems that I thought I had for life have gone. I think of all the times I used to ignore the doctors when they told me I should lose some weight. Just a shame it took so many years for me to do something about my weight and eating habits.

    Health has got to be as good a reason as any for losing weight but yet we ignore all the advice given. I lost weight because I didn't like the way I looked but now looking better, eating healthier, physically more fit and medical problems gone. Win, win, win.

  • hi Andyt2120 many thanks and well done i've still got sleep apnoea and well never get rid of it but hopeful by losing the next six stones it might reduce it who knows take care and well done again bigalan

  • Hi there Alan

    I saw you had decided to 'follow' my posts, so thanks for that. I hope we can chivvy each other and others along.

    I am quitting the ciggies (over 4 months now) and I - as of last week - started a diet. My weight has yo-yoed all my life, sometimes 3- 4 stone over weight then 1 stone under weight. When I turned 40 my health went down the drain with hereditary probs.

    To cut a long story short I was 6 stone over weight by the time I was 44. I took action and for me it worked. I attended 'LighterLife' and I lost over 5 stone in just over 3 months.

    I am now 48 and have maintained my weight up until last year, when the pound just secretly crept on little by little until I notice my clothes we not just uncomfortable but some wouldn't fit. This was due to several reasons - redundancy, too much time in the pub, relocation etc. So I'm taking charge again! Got to shed the weight & gain confidence again to FEEL rather than look good. ( I also won't stink of cigarettes!!)

    Keep at it Alan you've done great so far.

    Elmdon.

  • hi ELMDON well done for packing the fags i did in 2003 and in 2008 is when my weight went up to just until 28 stone from then until now i have lost 8 stone and at the moment i'm 19 stone 1/4lb and still at 6ft 3inch the best thing about giving up the fags two reason first your health second your bank account. after i have worked out how much i used smoke and drink and let me tell you i could drink ale think a fish drinks water the amount i saved brought me a brand new car in 2004, i'm now waiting for my disability car now and the fact that after all these years now it feels as though ive never smoked. all the best in your journey to a smoke free life and a health bank balance if i like many other can do it i know you can to. i'm here if you need any advice please drop me a line take care bigalan

  • Good luck, Im starting my weight loss journey today for the 100th time, but Im hoping with support and storys on here I will be more successful. I have 6 stone to lose x

  • Hi their veganista when i look at pictures of me in my 20 and how slim i looked then to then pictures of my in my late 30's early 40's i think how on earth did i managed to get that big i mean nearly 28 stone i was in 2008 now in 2015 i'm just until the 19 stone mark but the nice thing is i'm still tall at school i was 6 ft 5 in but now i'm only 6 ft 3 in so not back for what it's 32 years since i left school and in all that time i've gain and lost weight but just lost 2 inch in height but i do feel better it was like carrying three extra people around, but just a couple of stones to go can't believe i just said and written it i thought it would be impossibly but the fact is that's what's happened. take care and many thanks for your lovely words most kind bigalan xx

  • Getting bigger doesn't matter that's in the past, what matters is now, and now you have made a huge difference and improvement to how you feel physically and in confidence. I'm only pocket size height wise 5 ft 1 3/4 inches so all my extra weight shows massively, I've been Vegan for 3 years now, I eat high carb low fat wholefood vegan. I've gone from 99.6 kilo to 92.1 kilo since this June. In July I was diagnosed with COPD and OSTEOARTHRITIS, so exercising is difficult with being in constant pain and my breathing, (and recently diagnosis with HYPOTHRYOIDISM) I mainly just walk my dog. I've never driven as I have epilepsy so that's always been a bonus having to walk. I'm losing weight slowly but I will get there ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • hi their veganista i was wondering why you called yourself that now i know anyway good things come in small box's. my dad was only 5 ft 4 inch so were i get my size from is my granddad he was 6 ft 7 inch when he died bless him. and like you i've got osteoarthritis in my spine, hips, and knees, plus many other illness, i'm glad that your losing weight i think it most be hard whatever size you are but the main thing is its coming off that the best way of losing weight so many thanks for your reply take care speak with you again kind regards bigalan xx

  • Ah so you know all about the dreaded Osteo pain!! My dr been trying out lots of different painkillers to try and relieve it for me. He's put me on a new one just over a week ago and said I have to increase the dose gradually because of the side affects. I'm pleased to say I'm finally getting some pain relief for the 1st time this year-woohoo๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š. But the pain killers are giving me wonky eyes hee hee. Seeing double !! I'm hopeful that this will settle down though. I hope you are ok, have a lovely day xx

  • hi their veganista may i ask for your first name the tablets that i'm on are called nefopam 30mg and there just about okish with my pain, but when you think i have three disc's out tapped sciatica nerve, depression, server sleep apnoea , damaged right shoulder, the list can go on and on i would bore you to death if i listed all my illnesses i've just about managing i've at them long enough. anyway hope you have had a good day today and hope next week is kind to you take care warm regards Alan xx

  • Yeah sure Alan I'm Anita. Gosh you and me sound like a medical dictionary lol ๐Ÿ˜€ I turned 44 in July and that's when my body seemed to decide to fall apart, but I'm so thankful that this year my mental health has been better than it's ever been ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Wishing you a good week too Alan,

    Take care,

    Anita xx

  • hi Anita that's a beautiful name i think we are like my problems started at 5 years old and when i turned 40 life didn't being that's when it started to really fall apart for me and at 42 then i had to pack in work i was an HGV driver for ten years but when that found i got server sleep apnoea then i lost my HGV licence but still kept my car licence i'm now 48 and ready for the scrap yard, has for my mental state these last 6 to 7 months i've dropped rock bottom with the messing around that's been going off, but now i'm nearly back to how i use to be so take care my prayers have been answer with a lovely friend you warm regards Alan xx

  • Dearest Alan, thankyou that's very kind although I am thinking of changing my name by deed to Veganista as that best suits my vegan way of life. I'm sorry you have had so much to deal with but I feel that like me you are a fighter and will get over all your struggles, as you also seem to have a positive outllook ๐Ÿ˜Š positivity has got me through everything (but I think Atm I'm going through the denial stage with the COPD) I know I Must quit the dreaded fags though, but I've cut down

    big time. KEEP FIGHTING ALAN YOU'LL BEAT THIS!! xx

  • hi Anita you are much like me i used smoke but i packed the fags in 2003 and went cold turkey that's the only way i give them up, i have heard of COPD but never suffered with it my heart goes out to you and its a shame were not closed so i could help you but this way at least i'm nearly with you please i'm here anytime you need my help don't do this by yourself let me help were i can, you say you have cut down how many are you smoking a day i will help you quit if possible you take care have a big hug from me to you to help you tonight, i will be thinking about you and seeing if i can find ways to help take care sweetheart Alan xx

  • Lovely Alan , thankyou I feel honoured that I'm the one you can send hugs to, and big hugs back to you too. I hope you slept ok last night and today is being kinder to you pain -wise.

    I didn't sleep to well last night but have just had a nice sleep this afternoon. This morning I went to Costa with my support worker which was lovely.

    I was wondering if you have a support worker or any kind of support? If not are you able to look into getting one? Just seeing one once a week for coffee, Dr appointments, or food shopping, practical and emotional support helps no end!!

    Take care dear Alan, hugs and best wishes to you from your friend Anita ๐Ÿ˜Š ๏ธxxx

  • hi Anita your very welcome to all my hugs as i've no one else to share them with i will send you one every day and night. it's not been a bad day with pain I've been sat at my computer for the last four hours printer passport photo of me so i can resend for my blue badge and special excess badge, i'm glad you managed to go to costa with you support worker i don't have one and i've look into it the say i don't need one so that just me alone in this world with just my new sweetheart Anita to help me get though the day. i hope you have a better night than you did last night take care my sweetheart big hugs for you from me take care all the best from your Alan xxxxx

  • I'm pleased your day hasn't been too bad!!

    Now please forgive me dear Alan if I'm suggesting things you've already tried (and make you feel like your hitting your head against a brick wall) it's not my intention to make you feel like that at all , it's just I believe that no one deserves to be totally isolated and if the solution doesn't at first become forthcoming it eventually will. I also wasn't classed as needing support but with a lot of luck I got my support worker from a church locally ( even though I don't go to church the support worker still helps me once a week sometimes twice a week if need be)

    So it's worth reserching other organisations if you already haven't done so.

    Once again I appologise if I'm suggesting things you've already

    tried!!

    All the hugs to you my friend ( you aren't alone in this) xxxxx

  • hi Anita i'm sorry if i misunderstand what you where saying i wasn't think in any way that you was suggesting anything you was just being yourself a loving kind person and at the moment my lack of understanding what anybody says it part of one of my illness that 99% of the time i misunderstanding, i wasn't thinking straight last night so please there is no need for a apology i'm just not with it at the moment. so i'm sending you my hugs night and day to help you take care my sweetheart love you to bits from your Alan xxx

  • Good afternoon Dearest Alan, I do hope today is treating you kindly ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I'm feeling the affects of the painkillers atm (double vision and blurrey head) so off to bed shortly to sleep it off. I hope you have a good day.

    Take care

    Hugs from your friend Anita ๐Ÿ˜Š ๏ธxxx

  • hi Anita its not been a bad day had server hip pain for most of day tablets taking a long time to kick in,but that normal, i hope you feel better in a bit my sweetheart and you please look after yourself and a massive big hug today to help comfort you whilst your a sleep hopefully speak to you later but if not i will be thinking of you and hoping you are better than you are now take care my sweetheart love you loads and a big kiss is waiting for you with a hug when you wake up take care speak with you soon your friend Alan xx

  • HI Anita i'm so glad you had a good rest but that's what painkillers do to you, yes i'm ok tonight the painkillers have finally kicked in, yes your right about those who don't have to take medication or drugs for them to have a good time i'll swap them for a day let them take what we have to take and see how they like that day after day i'd think they would soon swap back. anyway my sweetheart i hope your next dose of painkillers don't effect you like they did early. warm and soft hugs n kisses for later take care my wonderful dear friend have a good night's rest speak with you tomorrow all my love your Alan xxxxxx

    Hugs to you ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š ๏ธxxx

  • hi Anita i glad that the painkillers have started to work and that your awake and back with us in the land of the living. its not a good day for me the pain is still the same but i'm writing this with tears in my eyes i'm feeling very low at the moment can't think why, i'm just getting so fed up with being struck in this house with now where to go i know i'm waiting for my new car to arrive but its seams like time has stood still, i know its going to be here at the end of the month but whether i am is something we will have to see. sorry for being a misery but that's just how i am today take care hopefully speak to you later love and hugs my friend to you Alan xx

  • Dearest Alan, I'm sad you are feeling so low keep your sights on the prize (your new car-your gateway to freedom) anytime that you get so bad put your thoughts straight back on that)

    I have total empathy as up until this year I was out twice a day without fail but this year with going so down hill physically I'm only really out twice a week with mum and dad, and my support worker, so I understand that "prisoner in my own home" feeling so you have my total empathy and I feel frustrated for you too.

    How's the pains today??

    Mine are bad these painkillers seem crap I will be calling my Dr this week to see what he suggests if anything.

    Well I better say bye now (before I fall back to sleep)

    Now remember EYES ON YOUR PRIZE YOUR BEAUTIFUL CAR!!

    Take care big hugs to you ๏ธxxx ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • hi Anita your right but its not just about the car its being lonely in life no one to share a special moment with or just to cuddle on the settee what a life, i think if i didn't have you has my friends i don't think i would be here now its only you that have kept me here thank you for understanding your a kinds sweet person that i'm glad i have as a friend only two more weeks then new car and if you wanted to go anywhere i would love to pick you up and take you out for the day take care big hugs n kisses to you my dearest friend Alan xx

  • Hi dear Alan, I understant as I used to be like that, for years (majority of my life) I thoujjt I was only happy when I had a partner, but it was only after the death of my boyf (he died of the same illness I've got -COPD) that I learned that I'm only Truelly happy on my own once I learned to totally love myself and accept myself as I am.

    Now I could never imagine being in a relationship ( never ever) as happiness is true lily on my own)

    I'm a loner now in that I can't stand being around people to the extent that I turn down all family get together s (much to their dislike) as I just wanna be on my own all the time)

    It's taken years to get where I am now -happy on my own and happy wit myself but if you can spend 10 mins every morning before you get up just saying positive good things about yourself and your life (don't let eny negative thoughts creep in) eventually you will find true happiness on your own -it does work I promise even though you may thing this sounds airy fairy!!

    Hope all this makes spence and sorry for any spelling mistakes I'm drugged up to me eyeballs

    Hugs to you ๏ธxxx ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • hi Anita i understand hope your ok today but by seeing that your drugged up to your eyeballs take care hugs and kisses to you from your friend Alan xx

  • Congratulations on your weight loss so far. That's a fantastic achievement. I wish you all the best for the next stage.

  • hi their AvidSketchter40 many thanks for your kind words it's been a very long road from 2008 until now ive lost just over ten stone and the support i've been getting has help me to continue take care love your picture kindest regards bigalan x

  • Hi BigAlan and everyone else, I've been a yoyo dieter most of my life and now I need to lose about 5 stones. I'm 18 stone and need to get to 13-14 stone to be able to walk without pain and have a hernia op as well. I've been living with the hernia since 2011 and it makes my back ache terrible. My knees are so bad the fluid has been pushed out the back of my kneecaps and the right knee pops and twangs when I bend it, the pain is horrible like a pulled hamstring and cram all rolled into one.

    I'm with Weight Watchers but not doing very well, not their fault I just seem to put weight on very easily. I have an underactive thyroid and my GP just sees me as a difficult case with all my ailments and doesn't really consider my thyroid a priority so I feel like I'm in a catch 22 situation. Stuck. What's your advice Alan? I can't walk or exercise much but I do keep busy but not terribly energetic.

    Take care everyone and keep up the dropping of pounds.

    Cannylass

  • hi their cannylass are me and you twins i said i could feel someone else pain the hardest part of losing weight is keeping it of that the hardest but can can't believe that your gp says that your thyroid isn't a priority i would love some of them to have it to find out want its like. weight watchers are good but like me i like my chocolate and cream buns, i've learnt not to order when i do my online shopping i'm not saying you are, as for exercise one thing that has help me is i got myself one of those pedometer to see how munch i could walk even though in pain 24/7 it help me over the years to increase how many steps i could do each day it may not seam a lot but each step i take counts i hope this helps and i'm here if needed take care Alan xx

  • Thank you Alan, I've been looking on the thyroid UK website, which is where I came from to end up here too by the way. There is a lot of people who have underactive thyroids, are on a dose of medication and yet they are still obese. There is also widening coincidence that these folk have fibromyalgia, which I also have, I was diagnosed with it after they tested me for everything else. There are other thyroid meds available which have helped with weight loss and pain relief.

    Yes I do like my cream cakes but like anyone who yoyo diets you learn to lose your bad habits every time you start a new diet. My problem is I comfort eat when I'm down. Recently I've swapped the cakes and chocolate etc for fruit now I have sensitive teeth from the acidity.

    I will plod on with the diet, I have to. If you could share some meal plans with us to show how you did it, it could help us too.

    Bye for now.

    Nite nite

  • hi their cannylass i know what you mean i'm a comfort eater but i will eat anything if i can get my hands on it, but the most valuable tip is portion size i swapped my big plate for a small one, then had a look to see what i was eating, but the biggest thing that help me was by going on the slim-fast diet that's help to shed most of my weight its just these last couple of weeks where i let myself down, because of being housebound and not been able to get out for my exercise of very slow walking because of my osteoarthritis i've not been able to do that. fruit i can but only small amounts because of natural sugar and i'm diabetic so looking at now fatty meal like the chippy, any takeaways, they stopped but i most admit for a treat once a month i will treat myself to a takeaway other wise you would go mad. have more veg, less spuds, chicken or any white meat, fish is good for you but leave of with the red meat and if you can get yourselves each a pedometer to see how much exercise your getting or how many steps your doing and keep improving on what ever exercise that you and your family can do, biggest thing never eat if possibly after six o'clock in the evening it lays in your system and not much exercise is being done, i will see if i can send you some meal sheets that i made to help me if you would like take care night Alan x

  • Hi BA,

    I weighed in a weight watchers today and I've lost one pound. I kept to my propoints this week and cut down on the amount of fruit I was eating as I was having too much. It was eating the enamel on my teeth. One pound in the right direction you might say but I would normally have dropped 4lbs on the week I've had. I'm disappointed to say the least. I had chicken and fish this week no red meat, l cut down on carbs. Yesterday I had chicken and leek soup for tea. I look forward to receiving your meal plans.

    Best way to share is in a cloud or one drive then you just need a shortened link.

    Take care

    Canny

  • hi their cannylass that's great well done i know some people might but it only a pound yes but a pound lighter than last week keep it up, i get weighted tomorrow and see if i've lost or gain i'm hoping or a loss, but well done chicken is great but don't be disappointed its you first week your a pound lighter not heavier i'm sorting those meal out for you and will have them by tomorrow. if you don't mind my email addess is alan.williams703@gmail.com i'll scan them if you don't mind me having you email address then i can send them to you ok take care well done again big hug from me to you Alan xx

  • for got to let you if you can get the carbs and cals book it well help you as well take care Alan xx

  • I've just purchased a book by one of the private doctors on the Thyroid UK doctors list. Its free on the kindle but I don't have one. Its about hormones & food choices. I'll let you know what I think when I've read it. Its called 'Weight loss Winners and dieting downfalls hormonally speaking'. The reviews said it was easy to read and opened peoples minds etc.

  • hi Tracy i'll down load it on my kindle many thanks for the book i just reconnected my my kindle because i've just up graded my internet i've just searched on my kindle and its not showing anything, i'll see if it comes until a different title take care hope you enjoy reading it speak to you later your friend Alan xx

  • Hi, I did reply to this yesterday but can't see it here so will do it again just in case I made a mistake.

    When I saw it free to download it was on Amazon. I'm not a kindle user so I clicked on it and it seems its free if you take a 30 day trial on some kindle thing which you can cancel before payments are due.

    Or you can buy it for the kindle for ยฃ1.99 just put the title in google and the Amazon ads will pop up, just click on them.

    Hope that helps Alan.

    :o)

  • hi Tracy millions of apologies it was me i thought you said it was from kindle don't worry its my brain not following what my eyes see, this is were i think i'm losing it just waiting for blood test for memory loss, thank you for putting my straight take care your friend mr stupid head Alan xx
