Hello. I am almost 67 year old male, having been reasonably fit for a long time, but this last 5months has presented some health issues, firstly in November I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, thankfully it was benign, but it restricted my fitness, not being able to pleasure cycle for about 6 weeks after surgery. I've been waiting for cataract surgery, which is soon to take place, but now I have been diagnosed with Angina, so I need to lose weight!! Any advice , tips etc, will be gratefully received..

Hi Bulbarrow and welcome to the forum.

Go to the Pinned Posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile) and take a look at the Welcome Newbie thread. If you have any questions, look at the Topics below, to see if they'll help you out, or ask on the forum. Join any, or all of our challenges :)

We run daily weigh-in sessions and you would be very welcome to join, on any day, except Monday as this is currently full. The thread can be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page, bottom if using a mobile.

Download the 12 week plan, if that's something that appeals to you and don't forget to take initial measurements and photos, as it's a great way of seeing just how far you've come, especially when the scales aren't co-operating fully :)

You may have seen this already, but I'm popping this link in too. nhs.uk/Conditions/Angina/Pa...

Wishing you all the very best with your weight loss journey :)
