    Re: Going on a diet

    I have been fairly successful with a simple change to my diet.
    Carbs in the morning are OK, when I will be doing physical activity. Lunch is mostly protein with fat, and veggies. Salmon or other fatty fish is ideal.
    Dinner is primarily low carb vegetables and protein. and a very small snack at bedtime.
    I had gone from +300 lb to 220 lb in a couple of years with that diet.

    She didn't actually call. I phoned the surgery this morning, and they confirmed that although I had been on the telephone appointment list, she thought it was an in surgery appointment that I had missed. Anyway, we spoke on the phone and she approved the prescription of Orlistat. This isn't a replacement for a meal (nor was the Metaphormin), but something that changes the metabolism, disabling the body from digesting fats, thus making it pass straight through & must, therefore, be taken with meals.

    I've got a full face to face appointment tomorrow, when I'll pick up the prescription, which has already been signed. The prescription is only a 3 week course to start off with. If it doesn't work, then it will be discontinued, which is fine by me, as the Metaformin didn't work on me either, so it was me who decided that there no point in continuing with it.

    Re: Going on a diet

    Despite being put the new med (Orlistat), my weight has just crept back up into the 140s, so I've just got back from a ½ mile jog, and I am KNACKERED. Still feeling dizzy. It's the first time I've been jogging since... well, ever.

    True enough it ended up more like staggering than jogging, but I made the target - down to the end of the Shore Road & back. Of course, once you get to the end (the half way mark) there's no kopping out - although at that point it doesn't seem so far on the homeward journey.

    Well, well done! But I have to ask have you done any prep before running? Something like this would be good preparation
    Beginners Training Schedules - Beginners - Runner's World

    I must re-start my six week walking plan that leads up to running, the walking just makes sure you have primed all the muscles before you start really hammering them by 'running'. It's a good idea to protect yourself from the get go from injury.
    If I find the walking plan again I'll post you that link too and maybe we ought to report back to FG on our training issues!

    Re: Going on a diet

    My prep consisted of getting dressed & putting my MP3 player on.

    Overall it took about 20 - 30 mins.

    On the outward run it was an actual jog, breathing in on every 3rd step.

    At the halfway point there was a couple of minutes to recover, holding onto the 'Mile Marker' sign for dear life.

    I started jogging back, but most of the return all I could manage was a stagger, veering from side to side a bit from dizziness, at which stage I kept breaking more into a walk. I did force a jog, but to be honest my 'jogging' pace ended up no real different to my walking step.

    My legs are still aching & my chest is feeling like I been a victim of smoke inhalation.

    Blimey, you need to build up more slowly or you will give up because you feel like crap or you will injure yourself.

    I've been for a fast 15min walk, not sure how far I walked. I finished off with a minutes running approaching home but with enough space to finish with walking.

    I am building up slowly because I have a brother who has trained and run in marathons and has ended up injured from doing too much too soon many times in the past.
    I can't for the life of me find the walk to run plan, it was basically walking on certain days with rest days in between and you built up the length of the walks by five to ten minutes each week.

    It's at times like this that being allowed to have a dog might be helpful - being made to take it for its walkies, come rain or shine. However, living in a Tower Block, that's simply not possible.

    Yaah all supplements are very time limited , as we cannot continue having shakes for our entire life and when we get back to our normal routine food than we gain weight, thats not the right way.

    Eat right drink lots of water and eat fresh.

    I'm hoping that having a job will help me with weight loss now, as it's limiting me to the sandwiches I take in with me, rather than the temptation to snack all the time at home out of sheer boredom.

    Plus the sandwiches I take in are Coleslaw in Wholemeal Bread - Tasty, yet healthy & nutritious.
