Hi All. I am a 63yr old woman who has been seriously overweight since childhood. Although I have been to loads of clubs/followed many diets etc etc over the years I have only ever lost a little weight which I have put back on fairly quickly. Basically I have pretty low willpower and love to eat!!
However, over the last year or so I have managed to shed about 5 stone simply by changing my diet completely, doing some daily exercise and only eating my main meal on side plates (if it doesn't fit on it doesn't get eaten!). This was prompted by a) the news that my kidneys are failing (I have type 2 diabetes) and b) my first horrendous experience of gout.
The problem is now that I still want to lose about 4 stone, maybe a little more, but I have been stuck for over a month, yo-yoing up 2 down 2, you all know how that goes I expect!!
Can anyone please give me some advice on how to reboot my weight loss and enthusiasm before I end up on that slippery slope yet again? It would be such a shame having gone from a size 30/32 to size 20 and more importantly reduced from three diabetes meds to just one!
Does anyone think a week or two of meal replacements might do the trick? Or would that be a bad idea?
