    Right Im back alfter being carted off by Paramedics to A&E for Intensive Pain relife
    as pain spasms would just not stop
    So spent the last week on a Mix of intravenous Morphine other stuff & Hospitail food :cry: and the ready made shakes my wife smuggled in two a day,I was made to have the midday meal

    Ward sister made me go back on my diabetic tablets to keep umm happy i had then
    but i managed to spit them out or just put them in my Bin :wink:

    BG was going up alfter the mid day hospitial meal managed to come down to around 7 3hr+mark
    so think got away with that, some days I was just too ill to eat anyway

    Sunday I managed to get a nurse to push me onto the wheelchair scales So this last sunday i had lost 1 1/2 lbs despite or becuse of the Hospitail food :roll:

    Back home now and back full steam onto the diet
    7lbs

    Hi Bob - I do hope you are feeling better now and not in so much pain.
    You really got the better of that nurse spitting out the pills :lol: :lol:
    Great wife you've got - smuggling in the shakes. Not much of the hospital food you could eat I imagine.
    Following your progress on the diet. Great work - keep it up.

    In view of the requirement to have a South Park avatar to do this diet, I suppose this is not off topic :mrgreen:

    Is South Park on the TV at the moment, if so, which channel as (confession) I have never seen it (not living in the UK). Which days? I may now be able to see it. I think I have missed something vital to the understanding of this thread :cry:



    Couldn't find a cat...

    If you don't know about south park, you don't NEED to know about south Park. :wink:

    People easily offended should definitely NOT watch! :lol: (In fact - even those who AREN'T easily offended usually find it a bit close the bone...)

    Saying that - some episodes will have you falling of your chair laughing!

    Hi Bob
    I am pleased that you are back home after 'being carted off' and still with the program.

    Well I have been back to the Uk now and was ok with it but I am glad to be back here in France now.
    I feel more in control of things here.
    However I have been having a funny day today.......wanting to eat all sorts and anything that is not on the program.......but I didn't do it.

    So it got me thinking what happens when we hit the end of the program, are there further guidelines or is that it we are on our own and just play it by ear?

    I will be at the end of week 7 this weekend............so I am on the downhill stretch as far as the program is concerned.

    I just wondered if anyone has any info.

    Hi Bob glad to see all is well with you and yours and in such a good happy mind set. :D

    I have done my weekly weigh-in this morning and still great results!!! :p

    9lbs week1
    4lbs week2
    3lbs week3
    3lbs week4
    4lbs week5
    3lbs week6
    4lbs week 7

    So thats ...............30lbs........... altogether whoop whoop!!! :lol:
    I am still on track with the programme and my Bg was 5.4 this morning so all is good.
    Only 1 more week to go to the end of the official program but I will go on with it further I think, now that I have got this far with it. It's so easy to do with only the odd time that I have felt tempted to have something off program. However I have resisted and it has been worthwhile with these results. I also have to add that I feel very healthy on it too.

    Well hope you have a good weigh-in today Bob and I look forward to reading your update.

    Diane

    same as coming off the Optifast diet see:
    Go to the bottom of the linked page and you can see the way you come of this diet same way
    as the Newcasle study
    http://www.optifast.com.au/why-optifast-vlcd.aspx


    This is what my Gp and Nurse told me to do much the same as above

    Drop 1 shake out replace with a normal healthy meal
    Keep with 2 shakes and one normal meal until you reach your target tonnage :lol:

    Then drop two shakes out replace with two healthy normal meals prob low carb for us ?

    Keep a eye on your tonnage if it starts to go up need to reduce portion size of the normal meals
    or total kcal count

    If you are keeping to your target tonnage level for six weeks then drop the last shake out
    replace with a normal healthy meal

    if at any time you start to creep up drop total Kcal’s or drop back to replace one meal with a shake


    To be Honest few of the shakes I really like eg the Banana one
    Think I will keep my breakfast shake maybe use milk instead of water when im finished

    I quite like the idea of maintaining a shake for breakfast. I'm sure that'll reduce my appetite for lunch, too.

    Congratulatiuons on the weight loss, Diane. You've played a blinder!
