    I have found myself 4lb heavier than my lightest weight recently, whilst a small fluctuation is normal, this was persistent.

    I know what the cause was. I had found that my weight had been stable for about a year and so I got a little blase about things. For example, I started choosing lattes rather than americanos when I went for coffee (which is a frequent event for me. I realised I was able to eat more, whilst the restriction from my bypass is still very evident, it is not as much as it was. Also I went to America for 3 weeks and was less careful on my choices and portions because I was on holiday. That is what normal people do, right?

    I was very keen to nip this in the bud, I needed to stop 4lb becoming 8lb and then a stone. I know what happens. So I am currently re-doing the milk diet. I know of other people who have done this to re-set things. Anyway I am just posting about this because I am currently bored to death of milk. I realise I am quite a foody, if my meals aren’t tasty and interesting, I am not happy. However, 8 days in and 3lb lost so I am quite happy.

    Hope you are all well


    Hi Chris

    Nice to hear from you.

    I think only gaining 4lbs after three weeks in the USA is nothing short of miraculous! I put on weight every time I go abroad for a holiday (except for one week in Corfu about 5 years ago when I lost 8lbs! How?) so I allow myself a limit. Then, when I get back, I go back to basics.

    You are doing the same thing, so it shows that you are being cautious but not obsessed. In my humble opinion, it’s a good approach. A word of advice – never do the milk diet for more than two week. It’s not recommended. You are 75% of the way back to the weight you are happy with so a massive CONGRATULATIONS for that. I love milk and wish I could drink more than I do but I find it SO filling now.

    Thanks for bringing up this topic, Chris. I suspect that many people will be doing the same thing at the end of August so you have proved that it can be done 😉

    Yes I’m done with that now. I’m not sure I’d do it again, it had an unpleasant affect on my digestion. Maybe no carbs is a gentler approach.


    I think some people become a bit lactose intolerant after wls. I can’t drink as milk as much as I would like to but am perfectly ok with cheese – go figure! I have porridge with semi skimmed milk and that’s ok too. Weird isn’t it?

    I suspect you are still very slim. You look amazing. Long and lean – jealous much lol!

    Hope to see you again when you are down in my neck of the woods 😉
