My name is Catherine and I am 38 years old. I am here as many of us are to begin a daunting journey on the path to a new lease of life.
I currently have a BMI of 45 which means that I am severely obese. After have=ing 7 children my weight has crept up and up. I think in my case it is a lack of exercise as I do tend to eat the right foods and maybe also cutting down portions.
Had a totally snotty letter from my GP suregery today as I have been refused surgery to remove my gallbladder so this is a factor in kicking my weight loss off. Plus my father suffered a heart attack last week and this also mademe realise that life is short and now is my chance to make some changes for the good!
Will be nice to get to know you all and maybe meet up with some local likeminded souls for inspiration and encouragement xx
