I'm new here. I am a chubby dumpling of a wumman who never had to worry about her weight until about my younger child was about 10. I ate anything and everything with no problems, and then suddenly the calories fought back. I ballooned.
Since then I have lost weight, gained weight, lost it again - ad infinitum. I'm currently about 3 stones overweight, and am finding harder and harder tools it, or even stabilise. It's complicated by an underactive thyroid, antidepressant tablets (they aren't supposed to put weight on me, but I'm convinced they do) and Sjogren's syndrome. I also have sleep apnoea.
I do eat too much - I know I do - partly it is lack energy, partly boredom, partly because I'm just used to eating and partly because I like food just a bit too much.
I'm hoping to change my awful eating habits and get at last some of my surplus off, mainly for health reasons, but also for appearance and confidence.
