hello. ive been trying to lose weight for years and only had success with an nhs weight loss scheme. I weigh 12st 7 and would like to get down to 11 stone to begin with. i'll be 61 in the spring and worry about diabetes and mobility, as I get older.just came accros this site while looking for weight loss clubs in my area and thought I'd give it a go. i'll be following the structure used by the healthy lifestyle classes I attended 8 and a half years ago-eg 7 portion carbs, 7 portions fruit and veg, 2 portions protein 2 portions dairy 2 fat I treat. so day 1 of a new start!
