    In 1982, 67kg 10.5 St
    In 2006 105kg 16.5 St
    In 2017 80kg 12.5 St
    Friday 76.0kg 11.97 St
    I think regaining my 1982 weight probably pie in the sky, but would like to make it to 73kg, 11.5 St

    You’re doing great, @ToveyKath and the waist size drop is fantastic and a much better measure of progress than what the scales say! Good luck with your blood tests. My next one is on 6th March.

    @ToveyKath thank you for the encouragement.
    @Liam1955 well done! I love the little robins but the scene is very cold.

    Thank You @mo53 :).
    Consultant at the Hospital prescribed 14 days ago a tablet for Inflammation/Arthritis. There's only 9 people in York on this drug and one of the reported side effects is Weight Loss = so fingers crossed it not only works for my aching joints, but I get rid of some weight too.:happy::happy:

    Not sure I'm going to post this Friday. Very despondent due to my current ailment. Still in agony and back to GP Thursday if suspected gallbladder/duct is infected and needs more help.
    Up through the night in pain. No weight loss when sleep is interfered with, for me. Was up at 3am but tossed and turned. Got up but I'm exhausted. Too much pain this past year.
    GP hinted on my back horrendous pains may be to do with gallbladder or intestines.

    I'd love to be able to walk without agony. I'd love to throw my crutch that has kept me upright in dizziness etc.
    We are both salivating at the idea of me getting back to normal.
    Bulging disc maybe just be from inflammation and ongoing infections?

    @Liam1955 it's good to hear that you may have relief from the pain you've been in. Added weight loss would be an extra. Fingers crossed .

    So sorry to hear you’re in such pain. Just getting through each day must be so hard, and weight loss is understandably not at the top of your thoughts, you’re only human. Try to stay positive - really hope you get some answers and relief from your pain when you see your GP. Take it easy & be kind to yourself. Let us know how you get on

    So the 7/11 musical scales say I am 66.6 kgs today (146.8 lbs).
    That's a loss of 2.2 kgs (4.8 lbs) since I last posted on here 3 weeks ago. Yay!! :)

    Down 0.9kg this week, which is 0.6kg (bit more than a pound) of real loss as I was slightly up last week. Now at 60.9 kg.

    Started - Dec 2016 - 101.kg
    Last week - 61.8 kg
    This week - 60.9 kg
    Total weight loss - 40.2 kg (6 stone 4.5 pounds)

    Definitely slower and taking more effort these days, but getting there!

    Edited to add that I just realised that I’ve now lost 40% of my body weight.

    Weight at diagnosis on 5.4.17 - 115.3 kg BMI 39.8
    Lowest weight - 64.0kg BMI 22.1
    Weight today 65.9 kg BMI 22.8
    Total weight lost as of today 49.4kg

    Not trying to lose any more - have been maintaining below my goal weight of 68kg since November 2017 - but hanging out on this thread as I keep trying to get the balance right :)

    0.6kg up - going to have a strict week as don't like trend of last 2 weeks - and the cold weather means I've been rather too snacky. 4 weeks to one year diagnosis anniversary so want to be on track for that :)

    Well done Goonergal, that’s brilliant! It’s hard work to reverse a gain, however big or small so good effort! Stay positive, have another good week
