Well got weighed this morning and lost 1 stone from heaviest only 6 to go.
How am I doing it? Healthy calorie controlled diet and exercise oh and am trying apple cider vinegar tablets. I heard some of you discussing it on here for arthritis and also found that it was supposed to help with weight loss, so I got some on friday and thought well it cant do any harm. Cant give it credit yet for the weight loss or the improvement in joints thats probably still the steroid injection I had 3 weeks ago. I am also cooking home made soups ( I know whats gone into them) and put a dash of turmeric into them again worth a try and to be honest it makes the soups really tasty. Cut salt out to help with blood pressure as it was high when went to rheumy appt but has been OKish at the GP's but probably need to get it a bit better before go back on 12th. Seeing Nurse at Gp on 5/6th Dec and am hoping it will be better then and that I get a gold star for the weight loss.
Joined a gym 2 months ago and for the last 2 weeks am making good use of the classes and facilities.( I'M going to get my money's worth) Feel my fitness is improving as I am able to do more on the treadmill and bike and am not as breathless. Also doing Pilates and Zumba.I got a new dog 5 weeks ago as my last dog died a year ago.I delayed getting one as I was retiring in march and have since had lots of home improvements done and my daughter got married in August. Now I have him he keeps me busy with walks which I suppose is also helping with the weight loss
Will keep you all posted and gentle hugs
