It's got to go!

Hey everyone.!

Happy new year to you all.

I just want to start by saying by looking at this page in the first place we have all decided somthing needs to be done about our weight.. so we'll done to us that's the first step🖒

Over the last 10 yrs I have lost 4 members of my family (not due to weight).. two brothers... and in 2015 I lost my father and just last March I last my mother..

Also in 2014 I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer..

So during my chemo I was told the steroids may make put on some weight.. boy did it!

The weight just piled on.

Until the diagnosis of the cancer I was hitting the gym for 3 hrs a day.. was losing weight and was feeling great ..then bam.. hit with that news..

Then with the loss of my parents..I just started comfort eating..so now..this is my start I need to lose weight or they won't do my breast reconstruction..

So wish me luck and if anyone has any great healthy tips send them my way please

Oh I'm a 48 yr old woman 😊
