Like most people, I'm planning on changing my eating and exercise habits once 2017 begins on Sunday.
I am 28, 5ft 1 and overweight. I used to be a teacher so was on my feet all day and walking from classroom to classroom; however, since changing jobs last year I am mostly sedentary as my job involves driving from school to school and sitting down tutoring children.
I also suffer from PCOS which has contributed to my weight gain around my middle.
I want to lose weight to minimise my risk of diabetes (there's a history of it on my mum's side) and to feel better - I have next to no energy, get frequent headaches and am tired most of the time.
Hoping to use the forum for motivation and to share ideas - I struggle the most with snacks, portion size and exercise.
