Been overweight since my two pregnancies and the birth of my two lovely daughters. Was slim before and could eat anything and not gain. As the eldest is now 18 and I have reached the frightening 50 and the menopause, AND the weight is creeping up every year, it's now time to get back into shape! Not feeling confident as - few previous attempts to lose weight have failed, but I suppose I have never tried for long enough. I lose slowly, get disheartened and give up. This time I have set myself a goal of 12 weeks to see how much I can safely lose over that time then I will re-assess... Good luck to me!
