Day four of my LRD – best dinner yet!

I realised today that I have already lost 11 pounds since starting his diet which is amazing. I also realised that I should have stopped taking one of my diabetic meds which now I’ve realised should make the rest of the week easier. I was running late most of today but have realised that’s nothing…

Day three of my LRD – and innovation is King

Yesterday wasn’t as hard as the day before and a lot of that about thinking creatively. I had been sticking wholeheartedly to the 3 meals (even when it meant I ate too late and therefor didn’t feel good) and i don’t think that helped.  Today I got a little creative First Up Breakfast – 10.00…

Day two of my LRD – and it’s harder than you think

Last night, after I’d posted about day one, I had unbelievable cravings, about an hour after I’d eaten my last food of the day. Crisps, cheese, crackers, ham. All these things that I couldn’t have. I had another drink and it didnt help so I went to bed. Today has been much harder than yesterday….

Day one of my LRD – and I feel like a fraud

So at the end of day one of my Liver reducing Diet (LRD) I am sitting here and feel like a bit of a fraud. Ive only once felt hungry , I have enjoyed my food today and more importantly I’m full at the end of the day. I’ve probably focussed too much on when…

My last last supper

So that’s it then. Tomorrow I start my LRD and am all prepared with breakfast, lunch and dinner all ready to rock and roll. But today has been unapologetically about food and has reinforced just why I need this operation. Lunch was an oriental banquet thanks to ordering the wrong thing on the menu, followed…

I’ve been thinking about my last supper….

I have 2 days left before I go on a diet specifically designed to reduce my liver size prior to gastric surgery on the 4th of July.  The Snappily called LRD (Liver Reducing Diet) is specifically designed to make access to your surgery area easier for the medical team and is an essential part of…

An apology

I need to apologise to anyone still reading, and to myself, that since I made my big announcement about weight loss surgery I have literally stopped blogging I guess two things happened… First Life got in the way. We have had a truly challenging 6 months at home with my wonderful Dazzler experiencing personal, emotional…

Fruit scones

My hubby loves his sweet things and as you know I’m having to be good getting ready for surgery but as he is having a bit of a bad time at the moment I asked him if I could get him anything and he told me he really fancied scones. I’ve never made scones before…
