my CD story is over!

remember I'm waiting for a hernia op? well yesterday it became strangulated and I was rushed into hospital for emergency surgery. It was incredibly painful :(

So now I'm medically contraindicated and cannot continue CD...

No exercise for at least a month either.

So, it's healthy eating for a couple of weeks, I'm very worried about putting weight on :eek:

Then I reckon I'll try and lose the last stone with another method.

Not ideal, but not much I can do about it...

Thanks you lot. Yeah, it's a shame, my CDC reckons it'd be three months before I could go back on CD, a bit like after you've give birth I think?

So it'll be slow and steady but that could be a good thing at this stage of the game perhaps. So I'm going to aim for 2 lbs a week I think, and it'll still be off for Christmas.

I won't be a stranger though :D


One day at a time!

Owww! Sounds very painful, poor you. I'm sure you will get to goal whatever way you choose to do it - don't forget us though and don't be a stranger - you have been truly inspiring and a fun Cambridge-ite!:)

Oh, and I totally forgot to mention, my one year old was admitted to Paeds A&E with croup, his stats were really low and he was quite poorly. So Mrs LJ had a night in the hospital with him downstairs while I tried to sleep a couple of floors above. The nurses were really good though and kept finding out how he was doing for me, they were pretty sympathetic to our plight :D

And I think he coped better than I did lol


Winning a losing battle!

Blimey Jim, you've really been through the mill in the last 24 hours! :hug99:

You have done so so well and I'm sure you will get to the end of your journey one way or the other, but your health has to come first.

Keep posting so we can still see how you're doing.

Take care and make sure you get plenty of rest. x

Hi Jim, well maybe your CD journey isn't over just on hold!!! All through your posts you have shown real focus and determination and your results are a huge achievement! Looking at your profile pic....well that guy does not have the look of someone who is going to let things revert back....back to that place where he was so unhappy and at risk health wise being overweight. So, now you have the opportunity to learn the maintenence bit and pause a while before you kick those last pounds into touch........your surgery would have always been there to get through...guess you just got it over with early! Best wishes to you and your family, hope you keep posting ...you have always been encouraging to everyone and very supportive. Take care.......stop bloody posting and get some rest!!!
