Hi Lou.

You really have done amazing overall – don’t beat yourself up when things slip up. You’re only human and great to see you are back on it now. Lockdown has been a really difficult time and many of us have seen the scales creep up – surgery or not.  On top of that you’ve got your health concerns to think about so well done for getting back on track.

It sounds like you are doing everything you need to at the moment – healthy meals , small plate, exercising even although it’s a struggle so keep going with it all . How are you with snacking and alcohol?

In terms of meal replacements or fasting etc it’s not the best move after surgery. Fasting def not as you need all your nutrients daily and it would be difficult to get enough in. Meal replacements are at least balanced and fine temporarily but long term you need solid, textured foods to  fill your up more and help you stick to the smaller portions. ( For the short term just to get your surgery they could be a last resort but you would need enough of them daily to meet all your requirements )

I’m glad you are back on your vitamins – they are a must whatever is going on for your general health.

keep us posted of your weight loss.

Because you have a deadline for weight loss for your surgery I would book in for a dietetic call too – help keep you on track and give you personal advice too xx
