    Smile Kernow Jo: Diary/Lost -97.5 lb on WW / Now having Gastric Band Hypnotherapy!

    Hi my name is Jo and I need to lose as much as possible for an operation later this year.

    I am following my old ww programme switch (core plan) because this is what has worked best for me in the past. I do however have the discovery plan as well.


    After losing three pregnancies during 2006, 2007, 2008 and giving up smoking, I comfort ate all the way through my pregnancy in 2009 right up until I had a c-section and gave birth to my lovely little boy born June 2009. I had by this time ballooned to a astonishing 21st.


    After having a successful pregnancy my husband and I decided to carry on and try for another baby hoping to have them close together in age.

    Unfortunately I lost the next pregnancy in November 2009. As if this wasn't enough to cope with, during a gynaecological operation (a erpc), the surgeon 'accidently' perforated my womb and bowel leaving me very unwell and in hospital for 5 weeks.


    My recovery was a complicated one which has left me with a large incisional hernia. I lost some weight but was still weighing in at 18st 2lbs


    My consultant has said I need to lose as much weight as possible before my next operation to lessen the risks. I saw my consultant in November 2010 and my weight was down to 17st 6lbs. He was pleased I had lost weight but said he wanted me to lose as much as possible in the next six months.


    I came away from that apt and decided I needed to get my act together. I have a lovely husband and little boy (now 19months old). They nearly lost me during my last operation when my bowel was perforated and I need to do all I can to make sure this next operation goes smoothly with the least risks as is possible.

    New Start

    I have been following my old core plan programme for the last ten weeks and have lost 25 lbs.

    I am now 15 st 9lbs wooohoooo!

    I see my consultant again in May so have time to lose more.


    Sorry that my story was long winded but I wanted to explain why I am doing this in such a short time!!


    Please feel free to pop in, comment or just give general support....... I need all I can get!

    Update 28/09/2011
    I am now 12st 3 lbs, It feels good to be well into the 12 stone's, and into size 12 clothes!Woooooo Hoooooo! Total loss 123 lbs !

    I had my operation on 8th Sept 2011 and am now recovering at home. The operation was more complicated then the consultant thought it would be so they didn't do the abdominoplasty. This will hopefully be done next year to remove the excess skin I now have from the weight loss but also because the hernia got so large it stretched the skin.

    Read my up to date posts to follow my post operation diary / pics.

    I have attached two pics of my journey, the first is when I was 21st and last 12st 13lbs!

    There are more pics of my journey in my profile album, feel free to have a look.

    Good luck in your weight loss journey!!


    Thanks for listening! Jo xx

    I have found that writing down exactly what I eat each day has helped alot. You do need to be honest with your self thou. I also write down how many steps I take each day and set myself weekly average steps as away to motivate myself.

    Walking has helped alot towards my weight loss. I use a ww pedometer to track my steps.

    This was my steps for last week (Target Daily Average at least 20000)
    Weds - 21507
    Thurs - 23937
    Fri - 21707
    Sat - 23931
    Sun- 22975
    Mon - 16536
    Tues - 20678

    My Target for this week is (Average at least 15000 daily)

    To help me to keep track of my portion sizes I found using a smaller dinner plate helped. I use a smaller plate all the time now and this seems to work well!

    Hi there , wow congrats on your losses so far. It inspires me to keep going when I see someone like yourself achieving so much.
    I started at almost 23st and my gp referred me to a bariatric surgeon who promised to help me make some progress within a year and get to the bottom of my eating problems or offer me a gastric bypass if he was unsuccessful. Well 12 months on after discovering I was a binge eater, I've lost almost 3 stone without dieting, just by stopping binging and have now decided its time to get down to losing weight with a sensible eating plan.
    So with an amazing 10st to lose I have to start somewhere and here it goes lol.
    So good luck on the rest of your journey which I will more than be happy to follow you on.

    Michelle, thanks for your post. You are doing very well yourself, 12lbs is a great weight loss!

    Keep up the good work and you will get there.

    Its hard work when you have a lot of weight to lose. I try to tackle it a bit at a time.

    Good luck on the rest of your journey! Jo x

    I managed to go for a walk this morning and again this afternoon.

    I have had a good day. We went to dinner this evening at my mum inlaws. I managed to resist her roast potato's and home made apple crumble and custard (waited til I got home and then had a small pot of sugar free jelly) gosh I even suprise myself sometimes with this new found self controll

    Our little man is teething at the moment and waking through the night. I hope he sleeps through tonight so we can all catch up on sleep.

    My tummy is looking like I have a football stuffed up my jumper. It seems that the smaller I get the larger my Incisional Hernia gets

    I am looking forward to having my Hernia repair, hopefully if I keep up the good work I will have my operation by the end of the summer.

    Tomorrow I will have another good day!!

    Thanks for your post and kind words of encouragement . I am positive because I have to do this and I know that moaning about it isn't going to help me at all. Its hard somedays as I am sure you are well aware.

    Tracking everything is the way forward I think. I hand write a food diary at home and also write down all my activity steps too. Setting weekly activity targets helps me to stay focused.

    You seem to of made a good start to your weight loss, keep up the good work and come and have a moan if days get tough Jo x

    Good day again, walked this morning and
    again this afternoon ( as well as walk around the local cornish market world with hubs and little man).

    Managed to resist the lovely smelling burgers and hotdogs and hot doughnuts at the market today....... it all smelt lush though

    Little man slept better last night so we all had a good nights sleep

    Must go now because Hubby is about to serve up dinner !

    Remember if you are reading : You can do this too !!
