I have finally stepped on the scales and shocked to find I am 15 stone! I knew I had been gaining weight and that I was always dressed in black and all my dresses were tent like but I told myself I liked a loose fitting look! I just chose not to see it. I have a bit of a back ache and when I Googled, the issue of weight kept coming up so I finally admitted; that is me the overweight 59 year old with a bad back! I lost my mum 5 years ago and even though I am married with 2 daughters of my own still miss her so much and know that I comfort eat! Looking forward to getting started, being supported and offering support where I can. Wish me luck!
