Well, here goes! Just to say that following an NHS health check I am trying to get healthy. I need to lose weight, lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure. I am a vegetarian and would really like hear from others who follow a similar diet. My biggest problem is cutting down on cheese, don't really like tofu and quorn. I am just coming up to my seventy fifth birthday. I have arthritis in both hips and both knees but am fairly active. I walk quite a lot go to exercise classes two or three times a week and garden nearly every day. I am sole carer for my 88 year old husband who has health issues and I am not able to leave him alone for too long. I sometimes feel quite isolated which is the reason I decided to try this.
