Hi there - I'm new here! Bit of a cliche joining on New Year's Day, I know. My problem is that since going through the menopause, my metabolism seems to have zoned out and I can no longer eat or drink the volumes that I just took for granted before. However, I haven't told my head that, so I'm still eating the same amounts. Combine that with a relatively new career change into teaching ( evenings and weekends spent planning and marking - free time to exercise - what's that?! ) and my weight over the past ten years has rocketed. To my shame, I have gone from exercising 5 x a week to none. I am concerned, not only by my appearance and self-confidence, but also about my BMI and the risk factors to my long term health. I do eat a very healthy diet - I'm vegan and always cook from scratch daily - but I need to eat less and exercise more! Please inspire me with your success stories - I would love to hear them. At the moment it seems like i have Mount Everest to climb
My daughter is getting married in August so I don't have much time!
Thanks for reading.
