Hi I'm new here and determined to lose weight, I have alot to lose, 8 stone . I've had high blood pressure since my early Forties (I'm 53 ) but only had to take one tablet and now I have to take two and I'm borderline diabetic. This along with my love of clothes has prompted me to do something about this excess weight I REFUSE to go up another size!! I have a holiday booked in early August. How much realisticly do you think I could lose? I need all the help I can get on my journey and I look forward to be a part of this community.
