Hi I am new to this and wanted to introduce myself. I am 42 and currently nearly 17 stone which is the heaviest I have been . I have been taking anti depressant medication for several years and I don't think this has helped me at all as far as controlling my weight is concerned; I also have polycystic ovarian syndrome which again, hasn't helped at all with losing weight. I really am feeling desperate at the moment, I used to be a healthy size 12 and now I am a size 22 and double the weight I used to be. I need to lose this weight, my whole body aches and my knees are really painful now when I walk. I just feel like it's never going to happen because I don't have the motivation to follow it through but my children need me and I need to get healthy. Sorry for going on, just feeling very own at the moment.
