Hi all, New on here and thought I'd say hello. I'm almost 50 and I'm fed up with being over weight. Thought it's time I did something about it as I feel so yuk all the time. As you'd expect at my age I've a few health issues (apart from being about 4.5 stone overweight !!) I've got an under active thyroid and CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) both of which I think are partly responsible for the weight gain . Also have depression which has made it hard to motivate. Enough of the reasons though I need to make changes literally my life could depend on it if I dont at least make a start...Tbh I'm so miserable like this, it's making me afraid to do the things I love like dog agility. Too embarrassed to compete and that's the goal I've set ..lose the weight and compete in agility at the serious competitions. Did anyone else set a goal and struggle ? If so what did you do to get past it? This isn't my 1st attempt & I know how hard it's going to be.
