Yep..... its THIS or surgery. I am on tier 3 for WLS surgery BUT I am not sure it's for me for lost of reasons. Main one I am scared and my severe mh problems. My psychiatrist is not keen on me to have the surgery right now.

I've cal counted done slimming world and am currently joined weight watchers. I go to meeting on Thurs.

My height weight was 25 stone. I binge eat :( this is why I am not sure about wls obviously it's not something I can do IF I were to have an WLS op due to risk of seriously harming myself.

My lowest weight was a few weeks ago 21.2 lbs-so close to 20 STONE something.

I am a slow looser we are not sure if it's the amount of meds i am on. I do get occasion WOoshes.

I eat out a lot.

I get 38 points a day on ww.

I have ME/CFS so struggle to exercise. I've started swimming lesson on a mon but only manage 20-30 mins in the water. I am learning to swim. But I then spend tues in bed :(

I NEED to do this for my son and me. He is my world i WANT to see him grow up. I LOVE him so much-he's kept me going when I've been in psychatric hospitals. He's my baby bear. He's 6 years old.

I joined the christmad challenge i was 21.10 last thurs. I would live to be 19.7 by Christmas. Xxxx

I really hope you try it one last time i really do, my depression was definetly hindering any diet i ever tried. my biggest weight was over 25 stone i dont know how much as my nurse couldnt weigh me on the scales she had i wasnt even upset she couldnt weigh me i just accepted it. i have been loosing weight through my factory job but one day just bit the bullet and joined slimming world and thought i would give my heart and soul to it i started at 19st11 and lost 10lb my first week then 8lb my second week my third week i lost 3.5lb but i had afamily visiting and no work last week so im back onit again this week more motivated than ever i really hope whatever path you take your happy xxxxxxx

Thank you so so much. You have done SO WELL with your weight loss :) with SW even in my first week I think i lost 4lbs and that was the most I ever lost in a week. But having said that I DO STIL stick to there principle and cut all my fat off meet and even on ww i dint eat hardly any cooked fruit as i cant get used to it being ok to eat :) i loved slimming world pancakes-i am sure I can do something with ww will have to look into it. One of my loves is cooking and when mu mh is bad it distracts me. Xxxx

7000 steps is a lot for me. I normally do around 3/4000 ish. Probably why I've been resting in bed since my son was in bed at 8pm :) xxxx

20 minutes or more is great. Celebrate yr success.

It's great you like to cook - can you get your boy to help you with a weight watchers pancake recipe?

Welcome back Jules, you can do this.

A word of caution about WLS if I may. A friend of mine had a gastric band fitted a few years ago and it worked at first, she lost loads of weight quickly - but then it seemed to play havoc with her metabolism and ended up being a serious health problem. She says she wishes she'd never had it done because now she tries so hard to lose weight but can't lose anything.

I know it seems like you've tried everything else and it's the last resort, but so much of this seems to be having your head in the right place. I know I tried halfheartedly for years to lose weight but it's only now that I'm really making it happen, and I'm happier (and slimmer) than I've been in years, even though I've still go a long way to go to my target. SW works best for me when I simply follow the plan and don't make any tweaks and so on, plus lots and lots of speed. Not every week is good, but for the first time ever I'm sticking with it, and not doing one plan for 3 months, getting fed up and jumping to something else! Hopefully WW is YOUR plan - but if not, try SW again?

Anyway, all the best in whatever you decide to do.

Hi lovely you are doing amazing with sw hunny :) i do LOVE sw it Purley because I can't drive ( due to mh) so gave to rely of family friend my auntie stopped going to sw. So I had no one to take me and I struggle with public transport. So I go to ww woth a friend. I do like it that I can eat out more BUT that's right now-i may well swap again lol.

Yep I've heard success and disaster stories with wls. I talked to my gp in 2016 about it have done a year on tier 3 ( so weigh ins monthly) and wls workshops.

If I had wls i would have sleeve-due to my medication and you still obsorbe vitamins so don't have to take tablets. I am really undecided. But am going to really try THIS last time.

So we went to a maise maze today-i really struggled :( I had to sit down loads :( I hurt my back in march pulling our son a 5 min trip of the sledge in the snow and it plays up every morning-for 2 hours I struggle :( to walk without pain :( I also blacked out on holiday 3 weeks ago and did the same fri eve-dropped a box :( I don't know what is wrong with me? Going to make a Dr's appointment tomorrow but as it's not an emergency it will be a few weeks.

In the end I did 5500 steps today on my fitbit :)

My son wore his new jurrasic world top :) xxx

Defo get to the doctor, maybe it's a pulled muscle, but the doc should sort you out.

Well done on the steps - anything is good.

Do you think a muscle would still be torn from March time? It just first 2 hours normally.

I've had a lazy day today my ME/CFS has flattered me I did manage to go into the city with my carer.

We had drinks in Starbucks all within points-no to cake :)

I've done 3500 steps today-I can't get warm tonight. I've just had a hot bath. My friend is coming round to book a trip to London in nov :)

I bought my son a spiderman infinity charter for the ps4-he's only 6 so only allowed to play when daddy plays on it to. I play on the jurrasic world game-i run around collecting coins :)

I had fish and chips tonight for tea ( aldi fish and lidi wedges) it was so nice. I ger weighed in on Thurs eve. I am really hoping I've lost some.

Tomorroe we are packing for hols-3 nights 30 mind away in a caravan on coast-we can't go far due to my MH. So many hol have been cancelled so we go for 3-5 days. Not more than an hour and a half away.

I booked a sun caravan deal for fever half term-my son birthday is in early Feb. I've done parties but with 30 odd children it's stressful. So going to invite 3 school friend round on weekend of his birthday to play and then go out with grandparents on his birthday to play place. Then invite 4 or 5 friends ( 4 of my friends have children within 6 months of our son) and they help me out with party's so it's not to bad. I've already bought party bags and games for prizes ( when on offer :) ) we are thinking of going to Disney land Paris next year. So I'm thinking of giving him some money rather than buy loads of pressies. He has ROOM full of toys :)

You can do it. Think in small stages rather than the end goal. We used to eat out alot, but we have just had to make lifestyle adjustments. We still eat out, but select where we eat and what we eat more carefully. The longer it's been since we made the adjustments, the more our previous habits have become alien to us. At my starting point, I was considering WLS, but it really is a last resort, and the good thing for you is, you know there are other issues to tackle which do relate to weight, and that to me is your solution. I look back now, and I'm so relieved I didn't go down that route. Good luck, and most of all don't give up. (even on slow weeks, or weeks where you may gain)

Yep hunny it really is a lot to take to consider wls but I've been trying for the last 10-15 year. I am 37 and so so worries i won't be her for my son if I stay this weight :(

I've only done 3500 steps today. I can't get in my ww app so points are from memory.

I can't get to weigh in. I am only jyst allowed to drive after vol surrender my licence to DVLA and hubby needs the car for work tonight. As we are going on holiday tomorrow. So I weighed in on my scales 21.6 ( they are normally within 2 lbs of ww scales) so a loss.

I've paid a bill this morning, packed some more of mine and sons case done a load of washing and washing up. Now to hoover.
