    Well up to 78.05kg today which is disappointing but I’m hoping it’s not “real weight” as it’s increased a lot faster than I expected and I didn’t think I had been so bad this week

    But not going to get down about it all, i have been going to the gym and plenty of cycling so it’ll sort itself out!

    goes up anymore and that’s when I need to take action to intervene!

    Good Morning .. festive season is over and so it's back to the weight watching.

    Looks like I made it through Christmas without putting on any weight.

    Weight: 77.7 kg this morning, BMI 25.7.

    Have a good week all.

    75.5 this morning - up 0.2kg since last week, but I'll let it go just this once because Christmas. Still under a BMI of 25 though, something I thought was impossible a few months ago.

    I have set myself the goal of seeing 73.something by the end of January. Should be doable, but the weight loss has slowed a lot - I have a lot less to lose than I did.

    Weight still slipping, again due to a short bout of illness. Cannot remember ever being ill so frequently. Anyone know what leukocytes are? Infection fighters apparently. How do i get more? According to a blood test some months ago, I don't have any.
    47.6kg
    However my health concerns are minor, my father is ill in hospital. On oxygen and antibiotics, no diagnosis yet.

    I'd be interested to know too. Mine always seem high! But I haven't tested in a while

    Happy new year peeps. Couple of pounds up, hoping it won’t stick as I’ve definitely not eaten enough to have gained 2 pounds. Back on the horse!

    Hi @SlimLizzy. If you do a search on here (forum and general info) you will find they are talked about alot.
    They are mainly the liquids you lose if you vomit or sweat. Loads of commercial products on the market to replace them for holiday tummy bugs etc. They are vitamins and minerals you need daily to keep heart sparking correctly and hair/nails strong and shiny..... and more.
    My friend has long covid and her B12 is very low so 3 inj in 6wks. She is improving. She's not diabetic.
    Everyone seems knocked about from all the viruses going around. Damp air causes chest infections etc. Keep warm, well hydrated and eat heartily.
    I wish you a healthier 2022. A prosperous one too.
    Maybe your gut/intestines need investigating if eating well but it's not getting absorbed correctly? Keep us informed as when tired and unwell the last thing you feel like doing is cooking after shopping for specific ingredients.
    Don't forget to take salt if sweating alot.

    I'm 95kgs so I've added a few pounds but swollen tummy is bad at the moment. It's being investigated, hopefully. Also steroid injection just gives me a bigger appetite but I hv tools to curb it. I'm restocking my cupboards too. After the termines (kids) have 'eaten me out of house and home'. Ha ha :) :) :)

    We are still trying to find a local doctor who is taking on new clients. There is a countrywide shortage of GPs especially in rural areas.

    Oh bless you @SlimLizzy. If you call your regional health officials (in the UK) they are obliged to supply you with their recommended GP for your health needs. In the UK its in the NHS's charter.
    Let me know if this problem continues, pls.

    Hi @andre53 are you Injecting insulin? Are you inj less when losing small? It may help. Obviously small decreases in par with good bgs. Good bgs is where you get a slot to reduce your insulin. If not Injecting exercise burns off insulin resistance but not as much as less calories.
    You're doing brilliantly. Slow and steady always wins the long race.

    We are living in France. System is slightly different here and made more complicated by needing a GP with some English.

    Happy Friday Folks !!

    Today's weigh in - 77kg
    BMI - 25.4

    Down 0.7 kg from last Friday.

    I took the opportunity with the New Year's sales to replace some of the clothes that no longer fit. I had to buy 32" waist jeans .. 32"!!! I've never bought a 32" pair in my life, 6 months ago it was 38/40" waist.
