I started my health & Fitness journey Jan 01. 2016. I have an autoimmune disorder ( body is rejecting my liver), that requires Mercaptopurine to keep it under control. Being a chemo drug, it plays havoc with everything else. I was diagnosed in 2010, and its taken this long to get it under control. After a few doses of prednisone my weight ballooned and I struggled to shift it.
Last year I made the choice to work at it, my illness would no longer control me. With a little research online and taking a level 3 fitness course I have managed to drop 2.6 stone. 16kg. I feel great and have more energy than before diagnosis.
My ultimate Aim is to reduce my daily dose of meds, play with my two young boys in the Park, and extend my life.
My aim for joining this forum is to potentially find other like minded people, Working out supporting each other etc on our health and fitness journeys.
Best of luck to you all in achieving your goals. here is to a great 2017.
