Obviously doing something wrong.
I am a 19 stone gent who has recently been diagnosed with gaulstones (diagnosed after a few weeks of hell with pain I may add).
Ok so long story short, I have been diagnosed with gaul stones. If I eat red meat (with the exception of mince meat for some reason), chips, pastry, Nuts I spend the next 5 hours doubled over in pain.
So after a long talk with the doctor two weeks ago I decided that this may be the kick I have always needed to stay away from the bad foods and put off having the operation to remove them. the same day I joined the gym and have been going for an hour a day 7am - 8am everyday for 12 days now, whilst there I cycle 4 - 6 miles, and brisk walk/jog 2 - 3 miles. Along with because of my job I walk on patrol between 2 - 3 hours.
My diet for the past two weeks has consisted of
- 3 hard boiled eggs for breakfast
- lunch is either a greggs Salad box ( 430cals) and fruit pack (advertised as 160cals)
- dinner (which I have been eating between 10 and 11 at night because of my work) is what ever the wife makes, so it could be shepards pie one day, curry the next - she has been using slimming world recipies so I know they are not loaded with excessive calories.
- I drink copious amounts of Diet coke during the day and 4 - 5 bottles of water.
Now the problem I have is that when I started I was 18stone and 13lbs, and today 12 days later I am 18stone and 13lbs. Granted, I will be the first to admit I have cheated twice - the first was a White finger kitkat 4 days ago and the second was today - a bag of reveals.
So yeah, does anyone know what I am doing wrong - I know its only been 12 days but I would expect something to have come off. Am I eating the wrong things?? I don't think Im eating to much as my calories are coming in between 900 - 1500 a day. does anyone know of a site that I can find a meal plan?? (im really not fussed if I have to eat the same thing everyday, I know longer have any enjoyment from food so that wouldn't matter).
Persevere dont give up just yet. Try mixing your foods up a bit, ie for brekkie try some fruit and a fat free yogurt or some cereal or toast etc. I know work means you eat very late sometimes, could you have something whilst at work and then maybe a snack when you get home instead of eating a big meal so late.
I know its diet coke but maybe cut that down a little? There are hundreds of diaries on here you could look through for meal ideas and for snacks etc. There is no quick fix just take one day at a time you will get there. Good luck

Two things that helped me successfully lose weight were watching my carb intake and eating a bigger meal in the morning.
I'm on a very low cal diet at the moment, but when I'm not on it, I'd eat a large breakfast. Maybe a mushroom omelette or scrambled egg on toast with some fruit. I stopped eating carbs after lunchtime and the weight just literally fell off. By eating a large breakfast, medium lunch and small dinner (rather than the other way round) I was reasonably full come dinner time and not tempted to gorge myself.
I'm on a very low cal diet at the moment and its not easy, no carbs, no dairy and only about 500cal a day but I'm losing 1lb a day on it. Its obviously not a long term plan (I plan on going on weight watchers when I reach my goal to maintain my loss and eat a balanced diet) but cutting carbs and dairy is a great way of dropping a lot of weight quickly.
Best of luck, you can do it!
After two failed starts in 2012, with less than a 7lb loss in total, I'm ready to get my body back in 2013.
Following the Secret Diet Drops plan since June 2013, and loving it!
