I’ve mentioned before that I have my Neurosurgeon appointment on the 29th March, to see if he can operate on my gammy spine. I’ve been googling things again and got myself worried!
I am overweight, have been forever, but since I’ve had to stop all exercise completely I’ve been piling on the pounds, even though I have cut back on a lot of rubbishy foods.
I’ve been googling about anaesthesia and scaring the heck out of myself - with the extra lbs I’ve put on and the lack of exercise, although I’m not in the really bad category, I’m still classed as slightly unsafe to be put under completely. I could do with dropping 2 stone :pout:
Since I have a month until the appointment I figure the sooner I get started the better. I’ve dropped a stone in the first month of a diet before (I know thats not a long term weight loss solution and most of that was water) but the diet I was on didn’t work for me long term.
Has anyone got any ideas on a diet that can be used by vegetarians, that has a noticeable difference to start with but is also sustainable over a long period? I don’t want to get into the Yoyo dieting routine.
When my back is fixed and I can start physio, I have grand plans for getting fit, I have a friend at the Gym itching to do a lifestyle consultation for me but he thinks there is no point until I can exercise again.
I have already started by cutting out crisps, chocolate and chips for Lent.
(Tried to do the 5 C’s and cut out cheese and caffiene too - but I’m only human :teehee:
Any advise will be gratefully received
