    Sorry you're feeling rough Bob, hope they can get some pain relief sorted for you.

    Not that it is something that I would ever do myself but I'm watching your thread with interest.

    Good luck :)

    I have all pain relief here MORPHINE on tap and loads of other things ect just a pay off pain or
    Stupor
    Too much and your just not in the same room as everyone else :shock:

    Drugs hold 90% back but you always have moments when nothing will touch it
    condition is progressive so always playing catch up with it

    Just cant wait for Tuesday see how much i may of lost

    Been weight today and another 3 lb loss so thats 19 lb altogether in 28days.

    Great weight loss. Doing well.
    The "feeling cold" thing. I have that and have since I started low carbing. Didn't recognise the connection at first but it is definately the case. Read somewhere that when the body burns processed carbs it's core temp is raised and that is what I was used to for all my life.

    I haven't weighed this week (fell off over the weekend - ate a kebab and chips on Sat. night. :oops:).

    Learned a valuable lesson, though. I can't eat like I used to, and I felt absolutely terrible (physically and mentally) afterwards.

    Total weight lost to date (prior to the slip, which I'm sure will have added a few lbs) is 18lbs.
