Hi everyone, I am a newby on here and hoping for some support and advice. I started my weight loss journey only early February and have lost 4lbs so far. I have had to contend with Valentine's, Mother's Day, husbands birthday etc, but can honestly say I have weighed my food, counted calories, write everything down, don't eat fatty or sugary foods, don't drink fizzy drinks and alcohol only on special occasions and then only a glass or two(all counted in my daily allowance). I walk to work 3 times a week, stand on my feet there, walk socially all the other days, today for 90 minutes. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis last year and have two collapsed vertebrae in my spine, I also have asthma, neither of which stop me walking. I used to swim 3 times a week for a solid hour, but stopped last summer when I fell and damaged my spine, now I'm scared to do it! Has anyone any advice as to how I might shed more weight, it seems to be one step forward then two steps back at moment. I lose a pound then the following week put it back with and extra half pound or more. I retire in November and worry I will get progressively larger, and at 5' 1' it worries me. I weigh 10st 3lbs and have a BMI of over 27
