I have health issues and high stress that get in the way too. One thing that helps is taking my vitamins, I have an electrolyte and mineral supplement I take, and replacing meals with 4 fiber pills and a orange la croix. The fiber makes me feel full which helps a lot. Sugar free gum and the rare hard candy when I am really craving flavors and then staying so busy I don’t have time to eat.

Thank you, both, luckily,I am broke so what I want to eat I can’t anyway, but I am getting more and more,puzzled. I wish I knew more about the effects of my meds and the adenomyosis, they have recently added two new medications, maybe I need to,check the side effects, but even so, a huge deficit should allow for at least some loss.

Now this is getting ridiculous, I ate nothing yesterday and again haven’t lost a damned thing. I don’t understand. So much for go at a deficit and you will lose, like hell I will.

Morning,  or middle  of the night as it is here right now, well yesterday was a long day, but I went with my relative to her appointment and finally she got good news that she needed so we are both very relieved for her, it’s been a long road and still will be no doubt but it was very nerve wracking going not knowing what the the outcome would be.

I am back to 201.5 so slowly it’s coming back down but I just do not for the life of me understand why it shoots up so quickly and randomly, yesterday I had a baked potato when out with tuna Mayo, a high fat and calorie choice and a lot more than I have eaten recently, but I knew they would worry had I not eaten and felt uncomfortable eating on their own whilst I just had a drink and it was good, I didn’t have anything else so I am wondering if part of the issue is not eating, if  Ineed something in the middle of the day if I am going to have it rather than at night, especially as my sleep pattern is erratic.

Mainly fasting to try and shift the weight a little as nothing else works, down to 198lb now. 21lb down. Way too many to go.

THank you very much, in kg I think I am around 89 kg. I don’t remember my lowest weight but seeing as was forced hospitalised and not allowed out of bed for fear of heart failing I think I’m best avoiding that as a UGW anyway and I was a lot younger then with a less crapped out body, it’s hard when we have a lot to lose to keep the motivation and momentum especially when We seem to plateau for no obvious reason. I don’t really have a goal weight set other than for now work to getting into my healthy weight range, I’m about 5ft 5. Thank you for following along and feel free to jump in if you have anything to say

Down to 196lb - 14 stone, fasting works, eating doesn’t! So I suspect a gain over Christmas but I will aim for damage limitation.

Bless you, I am sorry you are poorly, I’m struggling thanks to some extra stressors I didn’t need, but that’s life, I have just had a little food, so,e smoked salmon and crackers and feel sick so that’s me for the day which is good, I don’t mind for a few days as long a si don’t gain much, but that’s down to me to keep my portions small, I am awful at all or nothing, that I have to,stop. I hope that you are feeling better! Sending some cyber hugs

I am still around, still reading and plodding, but have had a rough few days feeling poorly, convinced I have Covid so being doing test after test but they’re negative, so it’s probably a different virus or my body being it’s usually jerk of a self and trying to knock itself off.

 

I gained 6lb over night Christmas Day to Boxing Day but am now back to 196, I didn’t even eat that much so I am kt quite sure what it was plying at but being poorly has a silver lining in that food is the least of my concerns right now I also managed to lose most of a light meal,I had this evening aski had a coughing fit and threw up, not my proudest moment
