Forty-nine weeks post op

Weighed in this morning at 80.1 kgs/176.5lbs/12stones8.5lbs, so have lost 900g this week.  I have a feeling it might just be a temporary loss as I feel I am settling somewhere between 80 and 83 kilos, but I'm willing to be wrong!

I shall be going back to the UK in the next few weeks and will no doubt put on weight there as I eat all the foods I miss living in Brittany.  Funny how you always crave the things you cannot have, or can have, but at a vastly inflated price, so choose not to.

Diarrhoea still reigns and I have still not started the last prescription drug I picked up from the pharmacy.  I will get around to it eventually.

Forty-seven week post op - sorry I missed forty-six weeks

I missed forty-six weeks because I had visitors from Cornwall and didn't think about it at all.

So, forty-seven weeks post op and I weigh the same again, smack bang on 81 kgs, 12st11lbs/179lbs, so I guess I've stabilised at this weight for the moment at least having been there for four weeks now.  

I went out for dinner at my favourite local restaurant, Le Pelinec, courtesy of my son, and with his partner and another friend last week.

and had a lovely meal, but couldn't eat all of it which was frustrating.  No plate is packed with food, but we had five courses, which is a lot to get through. 

The puddings were lovely - this had been started before the photo but not by me!  I had a fig and apple tart with cream.

This morning I did half an hour in the polytunnel before I go off to bowls.  I've done loads of work in the veggie garden and polytunnel over the last two weeks.  I haven't been able to bend so well for years and it's good weeding, sowing and planting without feeling ill bending over.  I've been really enjoying it.

Prawn salad with bread and butter in my poly box for lunch today at bowls.  I'm eating loads of fish rather than meat, plaice, mackerel, trout, prawns, bass - lovely - and much cheaper in Brittany than in England.
