The final countdown.....

Hi guys hope you don't mind me writing a food and thoughts diary on here,I am really hoping this is the last time I have to shift this weight!

I have done it so many times over the years and got down to 10st for my wedding in 2006.

I had a knee replacement last year due to a nasty disease eating away at most of my knee,I am only 31 so far too young to have one but had no choice but it hasn't improved my pain as the disease is still causing damage to my soft tissue so I walk with a stick and I am on Morphine for the pain and this will never go away now so I'm hoping losing the extra weight I am carrying will help me feel a bit better.

I'm a mum of 2 and happily married.

I have lost 3 stone since May 2009 with Rosemary Conley which I am still following for the 5% fat rule and low GI but I am mainly calorie counting using MFP (my username is natdee)

So here goes I am in my 3rd week and I lost 2 1/4lbs 1st week and put on 1 1/4lbs last week no idea why!

So weigh in is Monday :D

I'll fill in my food diary later :)

Thanks for reading x

Sorry to hear about your knee, Natalie. My OH has had knee surgery too, but not for the same reasons (motorbike accident). I'm sure the weight loss has helped? Congrats on losing 3 stone and good luck with the rest of your journey :)

It hasn't helped yet i just hope shifting the last 2 stone will,but the doc seemed to think even though it will relieve pressure it will still be as painful.

Food looks great. You are doing really well.
I know what it's like to suffer with knee problems. Obviously not to the same scale, but I have terrible pain in my left knee. I'm waiting on a scan, so I know that rest is just as important as exercise.

Keep up the good work :)
I hope the scan gives you some answers Hun x
I feel lazy today but I know I can't push as I end up in bed for days and days if I do!My Docs say I need to learn how to pace myself!Easier said than done sometimes!
Morning all so the dreaded weekend is here I always find it so tough food wise.
Hubby is on a charity walk all day so it's just me and the kids.

Breakfast Muesli mixed with cheerios and milk.299

Lunch Ham sandwich on white with skips 312

Dinner Rosemary Conley recipe - Chicken Korma with rice 412

Well I've had a Chinese!I had a chow mien chicken and I weighed it out and put it in MFP I ate 6 prawn crackers and counted them too!
I was still only at 1198 calories with out eating back my exercise calories obviously Chinese isn't the best thing to eat but hopefully staying within my calories will mean I still lose this week :(
