Metallichick has done it before she can do it again!!
Hello everyone :sign0144:, i thought i would write a diary as it hopefully will keep me on track....It seems to work well for others :)
I successfully lost 5 stone 8 years ago with lighter life & managed to keep it off until 3 years ago, i had a busy lifestyle & a hectic job at the NHS until one morning in July 2010 i woke up with a horrendous headache (which has never gone) that was the start of my life taking a dramatic turn...The pain in my head came out of the blue, i had to go sick from work as i just could not function at all. To cut a long story short during the period between July 2010 & March 2011 i was backwards & forwards to doctors & hospitals & having a lot of time of sick. The trust i worked at diagnosed me with a condition called TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint dysfunction) which later turned out to be the wrong diagnosis, unfortunately as i continued struggling to function on a daily basis i couldn't do my job & was eventually discharged due to ill health.
By this time i was slowing putting a bit of weight, no longer active in any way all i could do was stay in a dark room & on many occasions not even leave my bed. Not happy with my diagnosis i asked for a second opinion, again to cut the story short after MRI & CT scans & seeing Various consultants i was diagnoses with 3 different type of migraine (Chronic Migraine, Hemicraina Continua & New Daily Persistent Headaches) I was later diagnosed with ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia & a low igA causing me to have a very low immune system.
Due to my now sedentary lifestyle & living very single with pain, i gained all the weight that i had successfully lost :eek:
So unhappy & uncomfortable I knew a VLCD worked for me before so wanted to do it again But no longer can afford Lighter Life, fortunately i found Extante which is much cheaper.....:woohoo:my order finally arrived a little while ago, so i can get started with Total Solution tomorrow morning...
So there you go fellow dieters that's a little about me & i'm hoping for the same success that i had 8 years ago...I'm looking forward to getting to know many of you & supporting each other in our journeys.
I will try to update my diary everyday to keep me on track....:)
:thankyou: For taking the time to read this xxx
