Hope everyone is well and doing the best they can with their progress in losing weight no matter at what stage they are at. I'm personally struggling to keep motivated - I like eating healthily and have no problems sticking within the 1400 limit, even getting used to exercising - but I just really don't see the point!!!! I'm coming up 48 so menopause is knocking at the door and feeling it. Also I have to take Beta Blockers as have a genetic heart condition, as well as a cocktail of other heart medications. My marriage broke down after I was diagnosed with my heart complaint 3 years ago, then fell into a rather destructive brief relationship which really destroyed my already fragile self-esteem. But I did take courage and walked away from the situation. But I feel a weight of daily struggle to keep on track as not sure why I'm trying so hard!! I don't want to moan too much and appreciate that in each individual way we all have stuff to deal with - I could just do with a boost and would really like to know the realistic expectation of weight loss and beta blockers.
