I have found out how to put weight on !!! A report in today's Daily telegraph said that dust makes you fat I shall never dust again Husband not impressed
Lost 1.4kg this week I am now very nearly just overweight and not obese -
So....... this morning I weighed 124.80kg still.
No weight loss this week. I'm not surprised! At least i stayed the same, no add. Although i have constipation from increasing my tramadol back up to maximum and water retention in abdomen and forearms.
Maybe next week will be a good week to lose?
I have read all your posts. I always have the same questions concerning them and that is how tall are you, how heavy is your frame and what's your age. Only with this data can you really tell if your weight is appropriate or whether you are cruising for osteoporosis. If you are over 40, say, and your BMI is under19, I would definitely go for a DEXA.
must sleep, but still steaming after reading a health summary that included the patronizingly pejorative words WELL NOURISHED. My BMI is under 21 and so I wonder whether the dude expects women to be anorexic or what? He also used the sobriquet TIGHT CONTROL to refer to my need to change my normal cholesterol.
My consultant is brilliant. He treats everyone as individuals.
Mind u cardiologist was anti-weight. Thankful I don't need to see him again!
Some medics don't realise how much we rely on them and how damaging their references from books can be.
We know how well you do @Contralto . Keep going, your doing your best and that speaks volumes.
Never mind a blind medic.
Hello everyone. Friday again! I'm happy to report……
I'VE REACHED DOUBLE FIGURES!!!
98.6kg today, down from 100 last week
Hello, I am 5ft 7in/170.2cm I am 55.3kg/8st 10lbs bmi is 19 and I am 38. What is a DEXA?
Great going @Polgara . I bet kids have noticed or are they too young.
Fantastic @Rachox Well done.
Rainbow, the following link gives information on DEXA scans: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/DEXA-scan/Pages/Introduction.aspx
Where do you live in UK (roughly, say county), and do you take any medication? The reason I ask is I know of a study actively recruiting, which involves a DEXA scan at the outset, then another 6 months later. The qualifying criteria include certain medications. I'm just looking back for the criteria.
14/7 - Morning.
Remain at 12 stone 12 lbs .
Well Done Everyone .
I am in Berkshire and taking no medication, thanks for the link about DEXA
Ah. A bit of a step out too far for regular study meetings, and actually just realised, I'd have to tell myself off for potentially soliciting a member!
It's ok the study sounds really interesting, shame I am too far out
There is a lot of research under way onto T2, in various places. There's some fab stuff on Pre-diabetes and also the psychological aspects impacting on self-management.
There are a few NIHR business units throughout the country, who are always reaching out for both trial/research participants, but also for focus groups to give feedback on ideas the researchers have for their research, prior to going for funding, so they are taking feedback from real people, which is comforting to know.
Anyway, we're taking the thread off topic, so I'll bow out.
Lost my pound again back to 6 stone 13 Perhaps I haven't been in contact with enough dust !!
hi guys. just saw this thread.
I had my type II diagnosis sep/oct last year (2016) but I'd already been starting to increase my activity and cut back on the carbs.
currently hovering around the 72kg mark, but my body shape is much 'healthier'. see my fitbit Aria scales history. Actually, the fitbit has been quite useful in marking the increased walking I've been doing, too. my latest one (fitbit charge HR 2) can track exercise type as well.
in work we have a fat fighters club - Jan to Jun and we have a fri morning weight/fat-ration weigh in - all pay £1 and if you go up, pay an extra pound. money to our charity and some prize money (which we normally give back!)
my single cut-the-carbs tip? if you are going to have potatoes, pasta or rice with something, then have chilli and greens (kale/brocolli/cabbage etc) or curry and greens etc. instead! OR spiralise a courgette/zucchini instead of pasta.
I did have some spare but not now. Even changed my pillows to anti-allergy ones.
Surely everyone asthmatic whose allergic to dust would be overweight? I know I few very slim asthmatics who get irritated by dust. One has the house from hell and is a nurse.
It takes all kinds to make a world. The more variant the better for me.
