Hi Just signed up here. I need to lose at least 2 stones. I was already a bit overweight & then in 2015, a cousin died in the February, my Mum in the April & my brother in law (husband's only brother) in the July. I think basically I have comfort eat ever since & my weight has rocketed to 11 stone 6lbs. I was around 10 stone beginning of 2015. I am 5ft 3inches so BMI is not great either & waist measurement about 37 inches. My Mum had heart problems from her early 50s. I have just turned 46. I really do not want to end up with angina so know I need to get serious about losing the weight now!

  • welcome, i'm new too, let's lose weight together!

  • Really sorry to hear of your losses. I lost my mum and Nan in 2016 and it is hard not to comfort eat when you feel so vulnerable.

    I'd like to welcome you to the forum and direct you to the pinned posts section which contains a Welcome Newbies post (this is currently being updated), but it does give you some essential info for life here on the forum.

    Any questions please ask.

    Best of luck ☘
