Hi, I want to lose weight for a few reasons but mainly because I have health problems and because I hate the way I look and feel. Now I know that you are thinking that hate is a strong word but I actually do hate the way I look and feel and also because my husband had a nasty stroke in October last year and I don't like having the thought that if something happened to me he'd be on his own. I don't mean that he was paralysed in any way he was very fortunate enough for that not to happen, but he's got a disability anyway and I don't plan on going anywhere yet anyway. I want to be around for him and to look and feel better about myself as well as for him for as long as possible. I hope that I can get hints and tips on how to keep the weight off and how I can get the best possible results.
