Okay peeps...I have had massively swollen throat/glands since tuesday, yesterday I had red face and neck, now the red is spreading down my body and was most recently scene in the vicinity of my navel. Face is now swollen somewhat...
I had a mole inspection at the hospital this morning..and I kinda hoped they might tell me wtf with the red face etc. ..and I saw a LOVELY young man who took a consult call half way my appointment and it was sooo house/scrubs I think I felt a bit in love with him.
Anyway when it got to full body inspection time I did point out that I had no idea why half my body was red and that he might like to watch out in case it was infectious. He asked a bunch of GP type stuff and said it will just be a viral infection that attracted some lymph action and that going red and swelling up was fine.
He also declared only one of my moles was a likely trouble maker and explained about how red heads have a different form of melanin which I didn't know.
Then sent me for semi naked medical photography.
Pretty much all I could think about throughout the entire trip was just how fantastically less embarrassing it all was than it would have been if I hadn't lost the best part of 3 stone.
So here's me thanking you guys yet again for all your support!
Morning. Dd2 and me have come down with colds. I felt happier yesterday but Dd2 is such a happy girl having her stay home with me was nice.
Bought a sofa bed off Ebay last night. I've been sleeping on a single mattress for the last 2 months. Got to sort the front room today to fit it in! A friend is picking it up tomorrow in his works van.
Dreading weigh in this week even more than normal!
Hello everyone, new to this thread. I started dieting in December then added on exercise a few weeks ago. So far I have lost 9.5 pounds iv got another 26 to go. Iv fallen off the wagon a few times, unfortunately I'm a comfort eater and had a few stressful moments as of late. But I won't be giving in any more! It's my friends hen do I'm July (weekend in Ibiza) and I absolutely refuse to be the fat one. Same friend is coming up for a night out in march so I can't even plod along thinking I have ages to loose the weight now
Hello yes, nice to meet you. Congrats on the weightloss. Are you at the stage where your clothes are feeling looser? It's such a good feeling when that happens or when you buy some clothes a size smaller. I also have an event in march which is motivating me. It's a friend's 40th birthday. She has a couple of stupid, thin, single friends who always manage to say something offensive about mums looking frumpy or letting themselves go (followed by "no offense johnny" .) I don't think they mean it but as it's the first time I've seen them since dd2 was born I'm determined to look my best and to challenge any of the crap they come up with no hiding behind 40 lbs of fat this year.
Had an ok week food wise, not as good as the previous couple of weeks where I did lots of cooking, but I allowed myself to have a few luxuries (chocolates, flapjacks). As usual not looking forward to tomorrow, even when I try really hard I don't always lose weight.
Yup were all making lifetime changes . I'm a comfort eater to its the first thing turned to as you know that biscuit /chocolate /cake /savoury stuff never going let you down And yup I fallen of the wagon couple times to

After pushing it bit harder this week 3lb for me
Plan is to push it next few weeks then will relax a bit over half term then back on it before break in April where I'm back flipping of the wagon for 5 days
1lb off for me It should have been more but, TMI, I have only had 1 poo this week Stupid pills. But I'm a lot straighter and I'm only using the stick in the house now so fingers crossed, all will be well next week so I can get back to work, and back to some exercise
I really really want to get into the 13st somethings
