Weight Loss - My Weight Loss Journey

My Weight Loss Journey June 2015

Welcome back to My Weightloss Journey

Well thanks for popping over to see my weight loss Journey for June. Things have been a little crazy over the past 4 weeks. I had a lot of collapsing episodes and was in and out of hospital. It has been stressful to say the least. I have felt like eating rubbish. Seriously I’ve craved chocolate and burgers and chips…but I was good most of the time.

During my week in hospital, I didn’t have a choice about my food. It was unhealthy. I guess the fill you up with calories to make you better but it was NOT in line with the “Hospital diet” that I’ve been on for the last 7 months. Seriously your told to don one thing by the outpatient dieticians, yet they feed you 3 times that in hospital.

Anyhow I came out of hospital 5 pounds heavier. Well, I was not impressed. To add to this my steroid meds have been increased, which they need to be as I was not on the right dose and this has made losing even more harder.

I then went to BritMums where the most delicious foods were offered. I ate healthy and stuck to my ration. I was really proud of myself.


So after four weeks of up and down on the scales. I can say I am now weighing exactly the same that I weighed in May!

Now I could be miserable and disappointed but against the odds I have faced, I’d say it is amazing and I’m really pleased.

So here’s to another month of battling to lose weight. I was told by my Endocrine team in June the less I weigh, the less Steroid replacement I would need.

They were absolutely shocked at my 2 Stone of weight loss and pleased as am I.

However they do want me to keep going as it will have many health benefits as well as have a decreasing effect on my Adrenal meds…so off I go once more. Let’s see what July brings us?

  1. I think you have done amazingly given how hard your month has been. You’ve not stayed the same you have lost the 5lbs you gained in hospital – and yes I agree the food is awful and never seems that healthy to me either. Also remaining healthy at Britmums not sure I could have achieved that. You look great in your picture too x

    1. Thanks Laura. It feel so different after dying my hair and doing my eyebrows lol! I did have a good time. I hope I can lose more next month. Angela x

    1. Thanks Laura. I’m hoping so too…although I do have a procedure in the morning and will be there all day..but I’m hoping no A and E or long stays in July! – Good Luck with your weight loss too! Angela xx

  2. Just found your blog! I have been trying to lose weight also, gained about 40 lbs when I started on steroids, lost most of that very s l o w l y and will keep trying. Being in the hospital always messes me up. Glad you are home and feeling good.

  3. Being on meds and trying to lose weight can’t be easy. I wish you lots of luck with the rest of your weight loss journey. x


  4. Oh good luck hun. Sounds like you’ve had a rough time but you’ve done so well! Keep going. It always gets me a bit down when I put on weight but as long as we don’t lose hope that’s all that matters. Good luck with it hun. xx #weightlosswednesdays

  5. My fingers are crossed for you lovely and I am totally behind you on this – you can do it! So sorry to hear you have been back in hospital again šŸ™ hope you are feeling brighter now! Hospital food is not great in the slightest, I actually think my dog eats better food! You are sounding really positive and I expect that BritMums would have given you a real boost! Thank you for linking up to #WeightLossWednesday and hope to see you again soon! Sim xx
