Hi everyone. Over the past few years I have had a lot of health issues all of which may have contributed to my 2 stone weight gain (I am now 13stone!!) I had a nervous breakdown 3 years ago and I'm on extremely strong antidepressants which help a lot. Unfortunately this lead to epilepsy which I am now fully medicated for and have been seizure free for almost two years now. Im now 41 and I appear to be showing strong signs of menopause with a week of night sweats once a month. All these things could have contributed to my weight gain but I cant keep using it as an excuse. SO.........if i'm going to loose weight I need it to be healthily and with support so, here I am....eeeeeek!!!
