    When are you having the op? I don't mean to be the barer of bad news but usually after having any op you need to stay off CD for 3 months (I'm facing this at the moment for a gallbladder removal).
    Hope it goes well for you though hun.xxx

    not got the date yet. But hey if i can get down a few stone before the op then that would be great! i am thinking with the state of the nhs it will be a good few months at least.
    Doc said i hadd to loose weight for it so we will see.

    Why do you have to stay off the CD when its so good for you?

    Oh - a long story really but basically, I've got too much stress in my life right now and all my attempts to lose what was 1 and half stone, led to me bingeing and putting on 1 and half stone. So I now have 3 stone to lose (2 minimum). Rather than keep repeating the pattern and risk putting more on, I'm trying to do something that allows me to maintain and if lucky lose the remainder of the weight. Who knows, I may be back on CD at some point. I have no idea.

    Good luck to you. I know it is easy to say but try not to worry too much about your health. Instead, focus on the good you are now doing to improve it.

    I think it's to do with your body needing the decent amount of calories to heal itself.

    I am surprised that your GP has put that problem with your vein entirely down to your weight. I can see you are aiming at losing 5.5 stone but you are not amazingly overweight. I've seen a lot of folk on here with a lot more to lose than you who have not been so unlucky with such a prob.
    I just feel that doctors and others are always very, very keen to put any and every health prob down to weight. It's not always true.

    Anyway, good luck with your plan and your op!
    Love

    When you are healing your body needs more protein so you should eat a healthy balanced diet.

    You will need to wait three months then before doing CD again.

    Surgery is far less risky the less you weigh (within reason obviously). Some surgeons will put you on a high protein low fat low carb diet for a few weeks to get some weight off before the surgery.

    I think you need to stay focused on the fact that you are going to recover alot better and alot quicker from the surgery with a bit of weight off. Also there is an increased risk of developing a dvt with long term bed rest, and having that extra weight while you are recovering will increase the risk - and thats that last thing you need!!!

    You CAN do this - from someone who is now nearly 3 stone down who has failed at every diet attempt in the last 12 years, CD is the way forward :D
