Went for my weigh in on Thursday - Just as I dreaded as my scales had been going up and down I'd hoped I'd broke even but my nurse said I'd put on a Kilo :cry: I did tell her my scales had been going up and down and that with things going on I'd not always had control of what I eat. She was very supportive and said that I'd done brilliant and that I would be able to get back into control as my sister improved. But what as really annoyed me is I've been really good most of the time so am disappointed. What makes it worse is I've hardly eaten anything over the weekend as my sister was rushed back into hospital as she was struggling and her temperature spiked so her partner and I spent hours in a cubicle in A & E on sat night Sun morning until they finally decided to keep her in to monitor her.

I'm on a training course for three long days this week with lunch provided so I'll not be able to take the tablets but will be good the rest of the time. So I feel like I've taken a few steps backwards this weekend and a few more for the first three days of this week. I really do need to lose some more otherwise my nurse will not let me stay on them anymore.

Wishing everybody a successful weight losing week We will not be beaten xx

    Its great that you have such a supportive nurse, she sounds very understanding and you need to also give yourself credit, you're having a very stressful/eventful time and you're doing what you can, others would just pig on junk but you're doing what you can to stay on track.

    1kg on isn't terrible and hopefully will be easy for you to lose, if you've just had a weigh in and your course is soon then you'll have plenty of time after to have a bit of a shake up and shift some lbs smile

    I hope your sister recovers soon smile

    I didn't have a good week either, i've been feeling unwell for most of it, feeling tired all the time, had some dizzy spells and have a bit of a 'half-arsed cold' and a mouth ulcer that stings like a mother! I've been on and off the tablets this week as i had a birthday meal to go to.

    I tried calling the docs to get an appointment as i was due a weigh in on the 11th but they are still not accepting pre-bookable appointments as the new system is still not in place (grrr) so i shall try again this week to get one sad

    Thanks for your reply

    Sounds like your run down and having the extra stress of not being able to book an appointment at your GP's is not helping. You're trying to help yourself and you're not getting the support you deserve!

    When I get an ulcer and can't bear the pain anymore I put salt on it , ithat usually does the trick. Bonjela helps as well.

    My husband has suffered from alot of ulcer of late but he has alot of hot and spicy sauce and doesn't eat many fruit and veg's.

    Hope you get booked into your GP soon and get rid of that ulcer. x x

    Oh dear, sounds like both of you are having a bad time at the moment. That's a shame as you are both so supportive of the rest of us, would be nice for you to have an easy time for a while.

    I've been told that not eating can be as bad as eating too much as your body holds on to it's reserves as it doesn't know when the next lot of fuel is coming.

    Hope the ulcers clear up, I am lucky and have not had one for years. My mum swears by something called Frador but you can only get it on the internet now.

    Trying Hard, I hope the course is good, not just on the food front and Saprkles, that you get that appointment soon. It is ridiculous, they need to have some capacity for planning ahead

    Thanks guys! You'd really think a GP surgery would have a paper system in place if they were implementing a new electronic one. Its not just people like me who need a weigh in, its anyone who is seen routinely. What i want to know is what these doctors and nurses are doing with their time when they should be seeing their routine patients!

    I've had the mouth ulcer about 6 days now and its driving me potty, i've got some bonjela and i'm hoping it clears up soon but i dont think i could bear putting salt on it!

    The course is OK It's a first Aid course I persuaded the Tutor to let us do the Multi choice before we left today and suggested we swapped papers and marked each others which saved her marking them tonight- She agreed so we know we've passed that part but we've got Scenarios, CPR and bandages to be tested on tomorrow. We know the answers but it's what you remember to say and do under exam conditions just looking forward to this time tomorrow when it'll be over.

    The food is lovely with plenty of fairly healthy choices but I do feel like I've put weight on just sitting around and wont have time to take any exercise. Come to think about it that's when I started putting on weight before when I was at college and spent hours every evening typing up assignments. I just put weight on so easily without eating the wrong things :roll:
