Well i have Drs permission to go away for a few weeks PROVIDED i do a full blood test as soon as i come back.   
UPSIDE of these 40mg water tablets is they are keeping the swelling down.
DOWNSIDE is Pete will have to empty loo more often while we are away  Grin Grin Grin

Good to hear your feeling better Jo & able to go away, enjoy your time away

Eat less and well do more exercise is the way to loose weight.

All these diet plans are just a wast of money, some will produce short term gain but nothing will ever match eating good food and not to much and exercising. Walking more is a good start Bob.

Good to see you are doing well Bob

In the new year Wendy started going to Slimming World.  She has lost 2.5 stone - I have lost 2 stone.  It is a complete change of diet.  We have stayed the same since going on holidays etc.  Once the summer ends we will be back on the strict diet.  This does not mean going hungry - it's a change of food. We eat plenty and we were/are never hungry.

We eat lots of stir fries now cooked only in olive oil.   Also lots of rice.  (I use the microwave rice in a bag - about 50p from Asda and Home Bargains.)

Weight loss has stopped for some reason, but muscles are firming up.
Some are telling me to take it easy at my age, I say "I don't worry about old age.......it doesn't last."

A quick note on bikes if it says 15 gears it has 5 gears and three ratio's on the pedals so you can use your energy wiser when you get to a hill you drop ratio's and it's easier to pedal

Beware cycling on the smallest ratio ring (front ) and the largest gear ring as you will pedal like mad and go nowhere but look like a monkey on a mangle


Oh yes and work it out We went on holiday and I was 87kg dared tell Steph that I returned after 7 weeks weighing ......... 84kg  and she put almost a stone on

Wow..cannot believe it's over a year since the last update on this forum.
To begin the cycling was good, the Nordic walking too, weight falling nicely, then Lady Luck poked her oar in.
My hip and spine developed severe osteo-arthritis so getting on the bike has become impossible and walking limited, I had to part with my beloved BMW motorcycle as she was too heavy to safely hold up when stopped, so now I have a little twist n go step through scooter for when the mood takes me, if not it makes a nice garden ornament Smiley (but my weight had crept up again)

Our local council are offering a free 12 week health course and so I signed up, the first class was this Monday 21st Jan, what an eye opener...you can keep slimming world and weight watchers, this is great, no dieting, just a change in lifestyle and apparently the weight stays off, even if like me you are exercise restricted. Best of all you can still eat 'normal' foods.
By the way....I am the thinnest one there so I feel much happier .

I wished to lose 5 stone when I first posted on this thread, and according to the first weigh in,  by my own efforts I have lost 11 pounds. Hopefully by May I will reach my target.     How you all doing with your efforts?

Well done on loosing 11lb already Bob. Good to see you on the forum again.  Grin I have put some weight back on over the last few months. I need to get some off again before the summer. Being naughty on our Spanish stay at the moment though.  Cheesy

Keep going Bob I know how hard it is I have the opposite problem trying to keep my weight up due to my medical condition I loose weight all the time -Whilst Steph is fighting like most of you to loose weight she is loosing it slowly which is actually upsetting her as she feels she is working so hard for it she should be loosing more

The strong pain killer i am on just pile the weight on , doesn't help when the Consultant doubles my dose....duh At least i have better relief from the pain and can walk a bit further.  It's either the Devil (pain) or the deep blue sea ( weight)

I know what you mean about pain
I do quite a lot of meditation and self hypnosis to reduce mine and when that doesn't work I start with Paracetamol and work up to Buphenorphine SRPatch

BUT the best pain killer for me is warmth last year the South of Spain certainly did me GOOOOD
Hope you get sorted so you need less analgesia
