Hi. I am new on here today. Looking for support to help me loose weight. I am 39 years old and have a two year old daughter, and 2x step sons, one at 32 and one at 24. I am currently under the dr for high blood pressure, and I think it could be related to my lifestyle. I have never been light, when I was my healthiest I was still 11st, but I am 5'10 so that about right for me, but now I am 15 and half stone so looking to loose 4 stone, and hoping this will help my health issues. I work two jobs so don't find a lot of time to exercise anymore. Any help, support advise appreciated. Thanks

Hi there Tannie-a. You certainly have a lot going on so no wonder you have hypertension. Stress plays a huge part in this weight gain issue (as I know only too well) The forum here is brilliant and you will get loads of encouragement if you post - Lowcal is one of the lovely administrators and can be always guaranteed to keep an eagle eye out for everyone! ;-) Good luck in your journey back to better health and fitness.


Welcome Tannie-a,

I'm new on here too but have found everyone to be really supportive & helpful.

Good luck! 😊
