After careful consideration I have decided to launch a blog dedicated entirely to losing weight, my journey, tips and advice for others.
The blog will launch fully on September the 1st and at that time this site will remain up but all future posts will only be submitted over there. Some elements of what you have come to know on here will carry over. There will of course be lots of new content and my journey will continue there albeit more along the lines of my personal “weight loss journey”.
You can find the link below and I look forward to welcoming some of you to the new blog.
Just wanted to check in with you all. I have now lost 124 pounds!
I am very close to passing my driving test. I should be completed by mid-October.
The 20th of September is the 5th anniversary of my fathers death and the day I sit my driving theory test.
My therapy is now monthly and no longer weekly or fortnightly. I have learned so much and progressed so quickly. I am glad I was able to share so much of it with all of you.
I started a new job 3 weeks ago and it is going very well. Good chance I will be made permanent and the money is good.
I have been on a date which went well but sadly there was no spark between us. There are many other guys out there and chatting to them all is fun. I am optimistic.
Finally with regards to the future of this blog I am still ironing out what I want to do next. Some small gems of ideas are around. As promised I will be sure to inform you all when I know what the final plan is.
The moment I realised I wanted to, had to, do it was about this time last year. It was a complete fluke. A basic problem became a full emergency. Vomiting blood, ECG’s, intravenous antibiotics and uncontrollable shivering at 5am.
As we rushed to A&E all sorts went through my mind. I had had a bladder infection earlier in the week but the antibiotics had started working, though, the day before there was blood again in my urine. What could be wrong?
The hospital was only a mile away. I was panicking. I had never felt this way before and could not stop shaking. My teeth rattled in my mouth. My partner at the time was very good. He took control and helped me dress.
I’d made the mistake of taking a warm shower to try and warm up. The Nurse looked at me disapprovingly when I said this. I was rushed past waiting queues of people on a trolley to an area of the hospital that was right under an air conditioning unit. My temperature was dangerously high.
