Thursday, February 25, 2016      4 comments

Today I went swimming for the first time in a year. This time last year we were in Marrakech and I tried just a width. I was in agony with my back for 2 days. Needless to say I was very nervous how it was going to go. The water was lovely, a... Read more

Awake at 2am. Excruciating pain in left hip and lower back. Got up at half 2 and had some tramadol, then settled on the sofa with my heatpad and kindle. At half I decided to try and sleep. At 4.45 Dante cat decided it was time to go out... Read more

Nothing lost this week. Could be one of any number of reasons. The main ones being: 1. I lost 3lbs last week, could be evening out 2. I've just started duloxetine which can cause a decrease in thyroid activity. I need to monitor how I feel, extr... Read more

Dante cat was very good this morning. Woke me up at 4.45am to go out to the garden (he's not allowed further, our back garden is seriously like Guantanamo bay, lol). He didn't disturb me again until 7am. Spent until half 9 chilling, then sorted ... Read more

Today I'm exhausted, left over from the lack of sleep Wednesday night. I actually slept pretty well last night. Maybe it's the duloxetine that the Dr prescribed . I'll soon know tonight. I'm certainly hoping so. That I'm finally going to start g... Read more

Thursday, February 18, 2016      1 comments

To start at the beginning. I slept downstairs on the sofa all night. For 4 reasons: 1. Hubby was snoring 2. When he wasn't snoring he was grinding his teeth and gently nudging him made no difference whatsoever. 3. I had heartburn. 4. Pain was th... Read more

Absolutely horrendously stressful day. My daughter has been unbearable. She 'forgot' to bring her meds. How can you forget meds that are essential to your mental health? It's the first thing that I pack, all of my many meds. They're essential t... Read more

End of week 1
Monday, February 15, 2016      1 comments

3lbs down I'm aiming to lose 1lb a week, but this is week 1 and I was expecting a bit more. A lot of it will be water loss, so I'm not overly concerned. I'm eating mid range in my calories most days, so should be ok. If it's more again next week... Read more

Exhausted and high pain due to volunteering at the night shelter last night. I always tend to overdo it, but it's so rewarding and I come away feeling so grateful for everything that I have. Still hungry at times. Went out for an early Valentine... Read more

Hungry today. Although a side effect of lyrica is increased appetite and I'm slowly increasing the dose of it, so not surprising really. I'm drinking a lot more water, especially before meals, as per drs orders lol, I'm feeling a lot more full w... Read more
Day 3

Getting better with the feeling hungry. Think it's just a case of my body getting used to having less calories and food. Today the fatigue is high, as is lower back pain. So difficult to concentrate. Went to see my gp yesterday. He's always ... Read more

Added more veggies for my snack and had my roast veggies and tofu for lunch. Still a bit peckish between meals, but I expect that really as I'm cutting back quite a bit on food. I'm coping with it, which is the most important thing. I'm hoping... Read more
