I am new to the site and am desperate to lose weight. I am 67 today and have spent the last year being treated for vulva cancer which hopefully has been successfully dealt with. I also have an underactive thyroid which was not diagnosed for years. Now on thyroxine and am told my readings are normal. I am married, 3 sons all settled, 4 grandchildren and 1 great grandson. We live in the east of England with our 2 Yorkshire terriers.
