Another newbie - 87down

Hi everyone I have been overweight for a number of years now, I have struggled to keep my cholesterol levels down and ended up on statins, these have got me into a much better place but I realise I still need to lose weight. My knees are playing up so I hope that getting into a healthy BMI range will help them as I don't want to have knee replacements if possible. It's a bit daunting starting out and I'm not that good on the computer but hopefully I will keep on track and get to know you all on here!

  • Hi and welcome 87down

    Ooo Knees, I fell a year ago flat on my face and my one knee took a right bashing, I tried to do C25K and my knee was not having it - so now I am increasing the walking instead - so i know what you mean about wanting to lose to help those knees

    If you just post a few words to introduce yourself and respond to others there, you'll soon break the ice
