I have edited this post to reflect recent changes. It seems I had lost motivation when I started this diary some 2 years ago and proceeded to put on weight before I restarted it. This time in July 2012. I am here to revive this thread and to share some news with you all! Before July 2012 I had an eye test and got referred to a specialist eye doctor in hospital. It turns out as suspected by the eye examiner I had "SNOWFLAKE CATARACTS" which either meant one of two things. It had either developed it through diabetes or it was genetic. Meanwhile I got referred to weightwatchers by my GP so from July 2012 I had been going to ww for 8 weeks. As it turned out, luckily it was genetic since my father displayed the same 'symptons' when he took his eye test at the same establishment (and got referred also). After the 8-week duration I did not renew my ww subscriptions (since then I had to pay amongst other reasons) however kept it up, however not as strict before - I do not measure the points or calories, I just have small portions and it seems to be working. Right of now, as in Tuesday, 4th February my last weigh in I now weigh 20st12.5! Here is a chart of my weight.
