I'm Loz, I'm 35 and a 17 stoner. I've had a number of health problems over the last few years including major foot surgery which, due in part to my weight means running or fast walking simply isn't possible. I've also been working in a call centre which has given me almost consistent ear infections for the last few years. This has affected my depression and anxiety disorder which has made my life a bit rubbish to put it politely. Finally, I also have an issue with gluten so I have to be careful with the foods that I eat. I'm not saying any of this to illicit pity. In fact, at this moment (and let's face it, life is a series of moments. We just need to choose which ones we carry with us), I'm really happy. As of last week, I started a wonderful new job which is far more relaxed, less stressful and doesn't involve a headset. Last year I became a vegan. At that time I knew I couldn't deal with my depression, losing weight and learning to be a vegan all at once so I focused solely on being vegan. It's one of the best things that I could have done as even though I put on weight (because vegan junk food is just as calorific as non vegan junk food), I feel better. Now that I've had the time to settle into my vegan diet, I've left the job that was causing so much trouble to my health, and I'm finally able to start going back to the gym, the last task was to start dealing with my weight. It's time to get my weight off so I can get rid of the pain in my bad foot.
So, basically, I'm here to bother you
