I'm armed, and ready for battle!


Went to the dietition yesterday and she was very pleased with the results. My sugars & blood results are improving. The only thing I got told off about was not always eating an evening meal. My metabolism does not have the power to sustain at a low level if I don't keep eating so will shut off if I don't have an evening meal. I've got to just have a ryvita or something to keep it ticking over in the evening.

I've also been in town this morning and got hold of a copy of Alan Carr's weight loss book. Lets see over the next couple of days if he can talk to me.

It's going to be difficult next week because I am with clients till Thursday and in hotels so finding the right foods will be a challenge. On the plus side I cannot snack whilst I'm with clients either.

Then we are away next weekend to my parents for a football game so I only have Thursday night at home.

I will probably be missing during this time so I'll let you know in a couple of weeks how it's going.

Hi F2Q :D

What a busy life you lead glad the sietician was pleased and that you are armed I am sure you will win the war

Hey F2Q,

It must have been great to get that good news from the dietician. There's an old saying about eating - Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper.

Remember to stay off those pesky cigs whilst you are away doing your various things.



I'm Back!


So has much happened whilst I've been away? I'll have to catch up....

London was hard work and a fair few triggers were met - post flying, post meeting etc etc.

I had a really hard day with a client on Monday and really wanted a "reward" when I came out, you know that Thank F thats over...but didn't smoke and didn't cave in to food either.

On top of that I was watching a football game in the pub Monday night with a freind who lives down there and smokes. I've not seen him since I gave up -but I didn't do anything about it.

Just going to go and update my signature - my weight is down to 66kg as of Monday - 4kg down, 11kg to go!!

Take Care everyone



Hi F2Q

Well done for handling Monday so well and for losing 4kg big hug coming your way




Thanks Marg,

Can't beleive how far you've come too. It reminded me - I was at my parents again at the weekend and dropped the Alan Carr book off for my Mum.

I wish I could support her closely but she lives 280 miles away.

My sister is also thinking about it. I will convert this family one at a time :cool:


Hey Jim,

My fat busting is working, slowly but agin it's the mental re-alignment I need to sort out, not being hungry.

You've done well with only a stone. Try doubling that & a bit more - but to be fair I couldn't exercise for the first 3 months quit because I was still ill and that just compounded the problem. I was used to daily exercise.

Good to see you are still here too.


hi F2Q,nice to see you back and doing so well,bet you feel so good at this moment:D,,as marg said,,big hug on its way to you ,,you just keep the faith tony keep:D:D:D


Good work F2Q

Quitting the smokes and attacking the weight, that's some achievement!!
