I went Walkies!

My baby girls, Fudge and Cady.

I got off my butt and did it. Wasn’t far, probably about a mile, but all it takes is one step to get you started, hoping I can keep it up now.

I went out in just a t-shirt and no coat and I noticed it was starting to cloud over and get more windy, but I didn’t care, it felt so nice, just feeling the cold wind on my skin and my hair blowing, it made me smile and feel sad at the same time. 15 years of my life was wasted being stuck indoors, to scared or not able to go out. To be out there today doing this for me, no one else but me, felt wonderful. My dogs were happy, I was happy and for those few minutes life felt good. I keep thinking about the possibilities of where life is going to take me once surgery is done and I really can’t wait to find out now.

I really enjoyed being out with my dogs today and making good choices. I can’t wait for more of that.

Yay, me and My Fitness Pal are friends again!

I didn’t get my walk done, but I did go shopping and looked longingly at all the lovely bad food, crisps and chocolate and none of it got into my trolley, I was very happy with myself. Hoping I am past the worst of it now and can get back on track before my operation, I was so close to my 55 BMI and I’m so scared to know where I am now. I am totally blaming the morphine and MRI scan, I was fine until those! lol

I need to remember why I’m doing all this, though in all honesty that has changed one hell of a lot now, maybe I will get into it one day!

Positive vibes for the end of the day!

Maybe I’ll get a walk and good food in for tomorrow. We can but hope.

Off we trot!

Someone tell me to get off my butt please, I shall be ever so grateful.


Happy Anniversary!

To me and WordPress!

Apparently I have been here 7 years! It started off something much different.

It was a blog for my Silks on Second Life, looong time ago!


Still doing awful.
Going to try and post every day til it clicks back in, maybe, hopefully, it’s the plan anyway.
Having a hard time with things going on in life at the moment and I can’t fix it so feeling bad about that, which isnt helping me.

Posting useless things on Twitter if you want to follow, I shall follow you as well :D  ’tis me!

Add me! There is nothing interesting there though, mainly about Big Brother UK and some little things about Bariatric Surgery, I retweet info I find on it.

I didn’t do what I said I was going to do, however I did stick to no carbs or very low I should say, and I had a good week again, 8lb loss.

Was very pleased with it, but I’ve gone terrible this week again, seems if I do a good low carb week, I can’t cope with it all the week after and go a bit junk crazy :( Ah well, as long as I don’t give up I can keep going down even if I have a gain this week, next week will be better.

I had a reply from Nia, to an email I sent her, I did ring her and she didn’t seem too happy and I couldn’t hear her very well so I emailed her to apologise  and I got this back;

Don’t worry Hayley. I wouldn’t let you miss your appointments….I’d be knocking your front door first!!.


Hoping to plan the August list when Mr Barry returns from leave at the end of next week so fingers crossed, you’ll have a date then. xxx

So I am feeling very optimistic. Whether that’s being naïve on my part I don’t know, but I want to hope it’s true and I get a nice letter with a pre-op date soon.

In non surgery news I have a date for my MRI/CT (not entirely sure which one I’m getting) scan for next Wednesday, for my spine, I cannot wait for that, I am in constant pain with it, getting up from a sitting position is getting harder and harder, so would really like some good medication for it and to know once and for all if I have arthritis in my spine as well as my hips!


Oooh I was in Morrisons today and I was paying for a pot of tea and the woman told me I had such a smiley face, she said it was very open or something, I think it was a new way to tell me I was fat! hahaha

I hate thinking of post titles! It’s very hard.

Not much new to say for today.

I did go to the class at the leisure centre, it was alot of fun, I did feel a bit dizzy and sickly towards the end, so I sat and had a rest, but I really enjoyed it. Very hard work though, but I’ll go back, I think I can do an easier class tomorrow, but I’m not sure if I can go yet.

Food is going well, keeping carbs down, though I did have some Quorn Savoury Eggs yesterday, but that was because I went with my sister to Ystrad Mynach for an interview to get on a cabin crew course (yes she has the perfect look for it, cowbag!!!) and I was sat in the car for two hours waiting for and I had eaten nothing since the morning so I had to have something to eat and it was the best thing I could find at Tesco. Not to worry, it’s not huge amounts and had some nice protein in them.

Going to bulk cook some vege protien food!

It’s getting very easy to avoid the carbs now, I’m quite liking this in all honesty.

I think I will link My Fitness Pal up to here if I can, so I don’t have to write everything down, I’m trying to keep under 1,200 calories, but I may go over sometimes, but at my weight I don’t think it’s too much of an issue!

I really really really! want to ring Nia and ask if the op is still likely for the middle of August or has it been pushed back again, but I’m too scared to know the answer too, why oh why couldn’t I go in with Linda, makes me crazy if I think about it too much, and I’m pretty crazy as it is, so that is NOT a good thing! Haha

I’m off to a class at the local leisure centre today, I used to go two and a half years ago, but then my nan was sick, my husband and I split and my nan died, so that kind of stopped me going there, but I’ve redone the Exercise Referral again and am going to give it another go. I wouldn’t have thought I would like a class, but it’s really quite fun and this is the easier ones for the older and disabled people, so I fit right in! lol
