We’re still here – well I am BUT hubby has been eating all the nuts & has polished off the remaining crackers for cheese & houmous that I thought I’d hidden from him. I can’t get him on the scales either as he’s been having some bad syncopies & no way can he weigh with me also holding him up. That awful, awful scar on his leg (where he took a good 8″ X 3″ layer of skin off) had healed up nicely (well as nice as it was going to get) BUT yesterday he had a huge boil of about 2×3″ come up so I’ve been dressing with Manuka Honey 10+UMF. I have NO idea if he hit it or what? It’s making him feel nauseous & he’s in bed fast asleep so I can get on here. I’m hoping that the Manuka will take off the infection better than triple anti-biotic cream or Inadine. The redness I think has gone down but the boil is still massive. I’ll be keeping a good eye on it as I’m frightened he may come down with sepsis as his immune system is shot.
Weighed yesterday & I’m back down to 11st 9.6lbs. so have lost 3stone since March 6th last year My lowest so far was at the end of September last year when I was 1lb lighter. We came off the strict BSD then (my initial goal was 12stone) although we kept mainly to a mix of Keto & BSD BUT Carbs started crawling in especially over Christmas so I went up to 12st 4lbs max. – NOT too bad BUT I didn’t want to be above 12st. I’m hoping that I can set another point lower again to try & stick to. I would dearly love to be 10st 12lb again or even lower BUT I haven’t been there in about 25years or more & I may look haggard if I get down there. People always told me to put some weight on if I went much under 11stone so I’ll see if ever I get there again. It’s my humungous boobies that I swear are over 1stone – well they were when I weighed them in the lab helped by my best mate Sue when we did overtime on our own, I was probably just under 10stone then BUT my face was, I think, more haggard than it looks now & that was in the mid 70’s. 45years ago, we used the immersion technique too. PMSL You have NO idea how we managed this great feat, I crack up when I think of it. lol Mind you in the mid 70’s we burned the candle at both ends for weeks (make that months) at a time – so no wonder I didn’t look my best.
I want to tell you all about some Sleep Mist that I’ve found OMG it’s WONDERFUL! Makes me relax & calm down almost immediately & I’ve been having the best sleeps in a long, long time. It’s sold by Tesco & is called Calcot Spa Manor, Sleep Peaceful Night Mist. It’s got Ginger, Bergamot & Lavender in it & the best thing of all. It’s just £3 for 200ml. I’ve just ordered another 3 as it went out of stock & I just don’t want to be without it. I’ve used very little so far but believe me it’s well worth a try. Hubby loves the smell too & he seems to get the same effects but he won’t let me put on his pillow because of all his allergies. I’ve also ordered the skin oil to try – that’s got Patchouli scent – love that!
Happy Birthday DCT, I hope you’re having a wonderful time. XXX
Cathy – keep going, you did this diet years ago & did OK. 1lb loss is great, 2lb even better BUT you know that sometimes you can get stuck through no fault of your own so keep with it & I hope you have a whoosh soon – me too BUT if I don’t I’ll still stick with it as I know it works. XXX
Yowser – I hope you get down to your Sept 2017 weight too. 6lbs is AMAZING! If anyone can do it, you can. I’m SO glad you’re sticking on the bus & on the forums as every post you make makes me smile. Talk about Positivity – I bet all of us wish we had half of yours. XXX
SueBlue – well done on losing 4lbs, I think I lost about 2.5lbs BUT I’m fine with that. I have to get rid of a shed-load of clothes too BUT not quite into the right frame of mind at the moment. It’ll come – it’s going to have to & fast as I’ve no room in my wardrobes for clothes that fit me well. I’m going to inundate the charity shops soon & also try selling new unworn clothes on ebay.
Add – Dawn, how are you getting along now?
Jennie – good to be with you all – I’m not going to try to overstretch this time. I’m just grateful for whatever I can lose if I stick with it.
Natalie, Mary & Nokie – stay with us. good to see you on the bus.
Gotta cut this short as hubby has awoken. Just redressed him leg (YUCK!) & now going down to make some soup. For the 1st time I’m going to weigh the soup ingredients just to see approx what we’re having approx in carbs etc. NOT that I’m going to worry about us eating the soup. I made some cupcake sized quiches today in the air fryer & I also made some coconut macaroons – so we’re OK snacking. May go look what else I can bake. Our oven I found out last week has given up the ghost. not used it for 12M+ so not gonna worry about it. As long as the air fryer keeps working we’re OK.
Onwards & downwards everyone
