    199.2 pounds or 90.4 kg on Friday. I use a moving average of the last 10 days to better keep track of overall progress. Down 4.2 pounds in the last 30 days.

    208lbs today-
    I lost a lot of weight after diagnosis and reversed my T2 but have spent a couple of years piling on weight, so I'm going to try to get back into some sort of shape. 170 or under is the goal!

    I'm still 99.70kgs this morning due to swollen tummy and looks like a water balloon. Hv inflammation confirmed (gastritis) but its not been made clear where the bleeding is coming from but categorically not from Roux-en-y. Either from inflammation or somewhere in my gullet/reduced stomach. Seeing surgeon this week for help as frightening when constant blood to spit out or swallow back down. It's a dirty pink first thing on a morning then red/pink blood the rest of the day. Black poo for weeks/months, too. I'm confident my surgeon has a solution. I think known before op or at least suspected. I was offered more appointments before op but waited sooooo long just wanted the reduced insulin to start in earnest. It has been very very successful. I'm delighted with the prospects of no insulin..... maybe. Weight gain when no controlled insulin pathway. Liver's safeguarding to my detriment, again.
    I'm keen to see what my weight will be on Wednesday for surgeon.

    Yes I particularly like the Jack Wills skinny Chinos.

    My weight this week is slightly down at 73.2 Kg but I consider that to be more or less the same as my last posting so seem to be a bit more stable again now.

    Today's 10-day moving average is now 198.6 pounds (90.1 kg).

    Steady progress, keeps me on track to lose about a pound per week.

    48,1kg for me this morning. But think that may not be accurate as had big celebration meal the night before. Going to weigh again in the morning.
    Edited to add
    15-02-2020
    Weighed this morning at 47.7kg.
    Think that's more accurate than yesterday's.
    @sno0opy well done you for reaching target weight. That a definite WINNER.
    @evaluator pound a week is great.
    @carty are you trying to gain weight too?
    @Lotties good for you getting a personal trainer. Keep up the exercise. Sore muscles proves they have been working and they will get used to it.

    55kg before, 55kg again. Thought I might have been able to repot the 1lb loss I was seeing at the beginning of the week, but I bought a pack of brazil nuts in shell (they were reduced) and have been busy munching on those rather a lot.

    Worrying a bit as not sure if I have a blood test this month. Was put on annual review but DN said she wanted to see me in 6 months, that was back in August, to check my Cholesterol as C was high and I refused statins. She gave me the 6 months to fix. DN has now left the practice. Do not know if a call back is on my notes but have not been contacted as yet. Not sure if I need to contact them which I am loathe to do as probably going to get a lecture and an argument. Just eaten as normal. Starting to get stressed about this which is bringing my sugar levels up.
    Do you guys know if they usually call you in, which they did previously when I was on 3 monthly review or do I need to contact them, it which case I will relax for a few months.

    EDITED to add: Phoned surgery today 17th, to check if I had a blood test due. Nothing on notes. So leaving until August. Can relax for a little while. Why do I stress myself over something so silly.

    76.9kg this morning, thats a massive 300g - added to last weeks 200g that almost 1lb in 2 weeks! hehe

    Slowly creeping down, play the long game at this stage. Re calibrating my goals after months of 2 or 3lb a week losses!

    I do the same but mainly only about my health. Only time I don't get stressed is typing on here. Even talking about my health status to a company who needs to know. (i.e gas company) by telephone I come off the call in a right state unless I do the call a bit at a time. E-on are great with me, luckily. I say I hv 'health anxiety'. Only because if a mistake made I feel it's fatal for me.
    My life has changed from multipal pregnancy tests bought to having heart attack checking blood tests. I support bhf with furniture etc so hopefully I'm paying them back for those costs. Thx God for British Heart Foundation eh?
    Still having symptoms and bleeding so my own surgeon is redoing endoscopy and having my Ultrascan redone too. He'll find where I'm bleeding from. I feel so much more relaxed. I feel a weight off my shoulders on exiting the Royal yesterday. :) :) :) I'm taking the not so good painkillers but had a nasty attack of scatica yesterday morning. I'm not ready to give up my walking aid yet. However my insulin need may hv come to a stand still unless a weight loss boost from somewhere. I had to take novarapid last night as I drank some milk as an experiment for this morning's congealed blood from lying down. I must admit I didn't get that lump but I did before sleep instead so milk hasn't stopped the bleeding but congealed it sooner. Milk has always raised my bgs. On top of a delayed valentines supper with partner without kids my peak was 17.9 humf! Mind u I had a stressful day as smear that morning and it was painful. I wonder if I do hv fibromyalgia still as pain is definately my enemy. My poor nurse. I had to console her as I cried with pain. I really hate smears no matter what I tell myself.
    One day I hope just a blood test, instead. I bet I'm not the only women who feels that way.

    Thx @Mike D :) :) :)
    My kids deserve nothing less. Youngest is only 6 and his autism has his mind of a 4yr old. So much cuddling does on, thankfully. They are such loving sons. I'm truly blessed. We hv been spared storm damage wise here too. Is your area safe?

    It is now @ickihun but it wasn't with our bushfires. We're over that now, but until you see flames all around the edge of your town, no way to get out and manning the hoses at 3 a.m. only an idiot would be truly comfortable with that. Such is life downunder :)

    @ickihun - are you saying your have had a heart attack, as in a diagnosed coronary event at the time you are referring to in the quoted part of your text I've copied below?

    "....My life has changed from multipal pregnancy tests bought to having heart attack checking blood tests......"
