Well It Officially Begins!!

Recommended Posts

Weigh myself on Saturday morning, at about  04:30 as thats when I am going back to Scotland. Weighed myself today and i've lost weight, only a couple of pounds but thats good, i'd be happy with that every week. My heartburn is doing my tits in, its gone weird, usually I would have it between and during meals. Now I get it when I swallow warm/hot food, it burns as it gets into my stomach, knowing my luck I probably have an ulcer!!! Or cancer!

It's nothing to do with warm/hot food....it can be any food. If you have got it, you have got it (heartburn) and you have to take medication daily to suppress it.....It won't go away.

I was put on Omeprazole in 2016 but I stopped taking them as I stopped getting heartburn when I lost 2 1/2 stone. I have been taking Nexium and Guardian which is simply Omeprazole but probably not as strong as they are not as good. I'm going to book an appointment with the Army doctors next week or the week after. 

I have a bunion, my thumb joint hurts, there is a lump, the join next to the thumb join on my finger hurts when I stretch the finger. My heartburn, and I sometimes stop breathing when I sleep, that's sleep apnea, I snore a lot. So I doubt 10 mins will be enough time for me haha.

I think losing weight will reduce the heartburn, snoring and sleep apnea!

The others will need looking at, oh I forgot to mention my right knee, that hurts sometimes when walking up hills, proper shart pain, it also grinds when I squat, like really loud haha, went to see the doctor in 2016 and she said nothing we can do if there is no pain, but at there is pain now I'm going to see the doc!

Well how come it completely went away before?

I'm sure it will again. Its weird at the moment, usually if I have heartburn I get it constantly. But at the moment its just when swallowing. Anyway i'll see the doctor in a week or so and se what he or she has to say.

That will have been to do with your diet.....either that or you imagined that it disappeared.

I would imagine most, if not all, folks swallow constantly.

Sorry haha, didn't finish my sentence, "Swallowing Food" but not all the time.

Yeah I basically cut out fatty foods on the Slimming world Diet. I think that helped loads.

Started back at the gym this morning BB. I knew I was over weight but I got a fright when I weighed myself, big changes needed. Going to try go to the gym at least 3 times a week and eat less crap, to start with! Will get more strict the slimmer I get. It's going to be tough.

Gyms are a waste of money!!

Just walk more, and do small changes, instead of using the escalator, use the stairs. Walk more and drive less 🙂 I know its easier said than done but during the day and week, these all add up. Just little steps.

You do know that gyms have they 'walking' machines...tread mills are they called......amongst other facilities ? A gym isn't just about pumping weights....and that's from someone who doesn't do gyms.
