My own personal Mt Everest- a weightloss journey

Hi there blog readers. It’s now 14 and a half weeks since I began and my first big goal is not too far off. I can almost taste it! And it tastes like a home made hamburger complete with fried onions, BBQ sauce and a juicy burger patty. I wish! I’ve  made it through another […]

My own personal Mt Everest- a weightloss journey

After last weeks gain of 100 grams I was feeling pretty despondent even though it was only a tiny amount in the grand scheme of things. I saw my dietician who was quick to reassure me that it was nothing to worry about and that I’d done really well so far, losing a little over […]

Firstly, I want to start off by saying the reason I posted on social media I was having weight loss surgery (gastric sleeve) was for no other reason than I wanted to be honest. I have struggled with my weight my whole life, and I know how infuriating it is seeing someone lose so much […]

My own personal Mt Everest- a weightloss journey

Well here I am at the end of my first 12 weeks on Optifast. While I am very happy with the program it’s now that I’m finding myself thinking of the foods that I can’t have because they are what put me in this position in the first place. Battered fish with hot chips is […]

Telle's Weight Loss Journey

We’ll the last two weeks have been rough but I am 5 days pre-op and feeling good! I finish Optifast on Friday and start two days of clear liquids only. This includes fruit juice, jello, broth, and G2. I’m hoping for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. I know I will have the best […]

Telle's Weight Loss Journey

Day 11/14 of Optifast and man am I ever feeling it! I’m so hungry, feel so worn out and tired. I still have three more days of optifast and two days of clear fluids. I feel like I could sleep for a whole week. I want to eat everything on sight. I am so hungry […]

Journey to a New Life

I meant to do this update a lot sooner after my bariatric surgery. I certainly had enough time post-surgery and before returning to work, so I’m not sure why I didn’t do it before now. So I do apologize for the long delay. I say “long” because in two days it will be four weeks […]

I’ve actually slept the past three nights (thank you, Lunesta) and today, I woke up rested with the sun actually effin […]

I saw a great tip for getting good results on weigh in day recently, you take 3 or 4 of these special capsules just before getting on the scales. Yep, it’s that easy. What do they contain you ask? Helium. Yes I am only joking. Great idea though. Actually I heard about another diet tip […]

My Fat, My Bypass

Well, its been a busy weekend. Running errands for Mom – making sure she has everything she needs before I have my surgery. I’ve texted all her friends so they can check up on her and I brought her a basket full of food to nibble on in between meals. The meals at Edgewood are […]

This isnt going to be much of a post but I had to share…I got to work and weighed myself….162.5 which is exactly 0.5 pounds lower than when I quit the daily drinking and started the South Beach Meal Delivery, and 2.5 pounds more than I weighed last Thursday morning. I’ve been doing this diet […]

My own personal Mt Everest- a weightloss journey

I’ve been on Optifast for 11 weeks today and so far so good. I was recently thinking back to when I had my stomach stapled back in 1985. Back then I weighed around 120kg which to me seemed such a huge amount of weight. If only I had known that 34 years later I’d be […]
