Hi, I'm new here so thought I'd introduce myself! I am hoping to lose 3 1/2 stone. My current weight is 12stone 8.5 lbs. I was overweight as a child but managed to lose it and control it over the years though with some some yo yoing in between!! It's been slowly creeping up for the past couple of of of years though and I want to do something about it.
I have an underactive thyroid and I also have a condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) which is a connective tissue disorder affecting my joints and internal organs too. It means my mobility is limited so exercise is difficult for me though I stay as active as I can. I used to be a gym bunny so it's been a big change for me and I struggle to lose and maintain my weight without exercise and haven't found any exercise yet that I am able to do without causing a flare up. Therefore I really need to keep a close eye on what I'm eating as when I was spending an hour at the gym 5 times a week I could afford to eat more than I can now!
Anyway, I look forward to being an active member here and wish you all success in reaching your goals.
