Squeekyboys blog revisited 2018

Published by Squeekyboy in the blog Squeekyboy's blog. Views: 704


Thanks for stopping by...

Well in 2017, I started my blog & had hoped to have lost weight so I could be given Rivaoxaban instead of using
Warfarin & having to continually go to the clinic for retests of INR but more importantly for me, this would mean I could eat more vegies to aid my weight loss & general heath.
I now have less hassle when thinking what I can eat & still remain healthy.

I've been on Rivaoxaban for two weeks now & I'm enjoying life more, because we went for sunday lunch at the pub yesterday evening & we had tomato & red pepper soup home made they said followed by roast beef diner with sprouts, cabbage, one carrot & some sweed but didn't feel one bit guilty. I finished off with a cheese platter giving the crackers to my wife. I did have one naughty thing though...garlic cheese bread ate the cheesy garlic & gave the bread a miss, do you know I've not had garlic since my DVT & PE.

OK Weight wise, at the moment I've only lost 1 stone & I'm back at the gym too, for a second bash at it but I'm pretty slow I must say but this time I'm going to stick at it as I'm back with my old trainig buddy Paul.

So wish me luck as I wave the weight goodby & keep the bg's low, last test shows 6.4 mol the lowest I've ever been since diagnosis in 2015.

Again, thanks for dropping by.
