    Madchef's Diary

    Hiya, I had to retire as a Head Chef because of health problems at only 52, now 15 years later I am grossly obese and have an arthritic knee which is very painful but worse restricts my ability to exercise, as does another health prob. BUT at the beginning of this year I took a look at myself in a mirror whilst dressing and hated what I saw so I decided to do something about it. I started a healthier eating regime but struggled so I went to see my usual Doc but he just said "use willpower", easier said than done. My biggest prob was the size of my appetite, I could eat two man size meals at one sitting and be hungry and hour or so later. I saw some info on the WWW about hoodia gordonii helping to control your appetite, tried it and it worked, I managed to get the size of my meals down and lost just short of 2" from my waist. Last month I saw another Doc and he wiht no problem prescribed me Xenical.

    My first monthly weigh in was last Monday and I had lost just over 11lbs in just 4 weeks and got a repeat prescription with no problem.

    I know I need some backing so doing a Google I found this forum and I think having a Diary is a good idea so here is my starter page.

    Hi, Mad Chef, welcome to the Xenical forum. It sounds as though you are very motivated. Keep posting here as you will get lots of support and that really helps. I'm sure as a retired chef you'll be able to come up with loads of Xenical friendly recipes, any chance I can persuade you to come to my house and cook them for me??

    I was at my Sister's for the weekend and she has a better more accurate scales than mine, and they always match my Doctor's one so I weighed myself and.........

    I am down to 20st/126Kilos which means I have lost, this week, another 3.5 lbs

    I had a busy frenetic day today and didn't have time to eat anything until 5 pm I was feeling quite sick n poorly by then, then had two meals quite close together as I felt sick with hunger, silly b**ch I really must get out of the habit of going out without breakfast.

    Good news tho' as one of my appointments was to get an X-Ray on my arthritic knee and am seeing the Consultant tomorrow evening, cross fingers he puts me on the waiting list, even with my obesity

    Well I went to the Consultant and he had put me on the Priority list for a complete knee replacement, not looking forward to it but if it gives me more mobility my attitude is "GO FOR IT" long term it should be OK but short term it looks as tho' I am going to be Home bound for 5 months or moreI'll cope I am sure, well I hope so.

    Today my diet control has not been good, having had two bottles of lovely dry wine to celebrater (?) I hit the fridge, didn't go to to mad but...............

    Well today started off well as I had to dig out one of my old bras cos the ones I was wearing were annoying me being so loose n baggy so now I am down to to 48 from a 50 but tonight being Friday I had to treat myself to a bottle of wine or so, That meant I had to raid the fridge, luckily it was all good type goodies but calories count so I expect I am over the top today, but as someone once said, tomorrow is another day

    BTW does anyone know where I can get some jazzy feminine braces cos my trousers keep slipping done, LOL

    Not doing too well today, feeling very bloated, lots of windy-pops and my waist measurement is back up to 48" I feel a bit bunged up so I think I will get some fruit tomorrow and see if that will help.

    Well my waist measurement seems to be at 47", as long as I measure it in the morning I weighed myself at my Sister's yesterday and she said I have lost at least another 3 lbs which is great but I won't enter my weight in my ticker until I have a my official weigh in at the Doc's as that is the one that matters, to him anyway.

    I am happy with my measurement loss also I am going to a Fall Prevention course, this is only the 3rd week and I am walking better already, I think it is the combination of the course and the weight loss so all in all I am a pretty pleased bunny
