    12.5 stone today. Trying to put some weight back on as i do not look good at 12 stone or under. Trying 50grams of carbs a day and not mess with my bloods. Got another A1c to do soon so will see how that and my cholesterol is doing as well :)

    I knew I'd been putting on weight lately, but I got weighed at the doctors today and it was a bit worse than I'd hoped: 97.6 kg/ 15 stone. That's quite bad for me, and I know my cholesterol/ blood-pressure readings will be poor alongside. Long term, I need to get down to 12-13 stone. Short term, I need to lose some weight quickly for my next cardiologist appointment. I'm going to read through the posts here and try to get some ideas and encouragement- good luck everyone!

    No change this week, 12.7 with a target of 11.10. But keeping perspective I’ve lost 15% of body weight and out of nowhere the loss has started again…

    If I hv constant 4 and 5s on lower fat protein I lose weight because of the right calorie intake and low carb.
    Most dietitians base on calorie intake but they are now wise to type2 needing lower carbs and decent calorie intake. We are complex.
    So i would be having higher calorie intake and less low carb if my sugars don't rise over 7,.8 where nerve damage is ment to occur. :)

    76.9kg tiny tiny progress but progress nevertheless. Don't think I've been down this far for the last ten years. The hope is that I don't put it all back on this month (alcohol is back on the table, we're alternating wet and dry alcohol months.)

    Somehow I seemed to have put 2-4 lbs on, but have taken 2 of those off again. I still feel flabbier though, and as though I'm a size bigger than my clothes are.

    Bodies are weird things aren't they?

    Bodies are indeed weird. I’m up and down around the same 2 pounds all the time then every now and again it dips into the next pound down!

    So no change BUT since my clothes were hanging off me (which they weren’t at Christmas) tried on next size down and they fit. I’m now a size 12 on top and 14 on bottom, started at a tight 18 last July. So even if scales aren’t moving much something is happening with my body!
