Hi everyone. I am a 48 years young woman who after being overweight my entire adult life, has finally been backed into a corner. I recently had an over 40's health check, which found high cholesterol and other "abnormalities". I have a Gp appointment on Thursday to discuss things, but I am wholly expecting borderline diabetes to be thrown at me too! Given that my mum has heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes - amongst (many) other things, I feel very stupid- and very angry- at myself for damaging myself in this way. I don't want to be a statistic and die in my 50's-that scares me witless. I lost nearly 7 stone in 2007 yet I have put most back on. Stupid stupid stupid! It feels like such a mountain to climb. I don't smoke, rarely drink, but food is a pleasure! I love cooking, textures and tastes. This is a HUGE challenge for me and I need as many helpful tips as I can get to do this. This is no longer an option but rather possibly a life saving journey! Any words of wisdom would be gratefully received......
