Hi Lovely people. I am 59, have secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis and weigh 17 stone. I am on medications which increase my appetite and have many courses of oral steroids. These undoubtedly haven't helped but I have a very sweet tooth and comfort eat so much of the time. I crave cake in particular but am happy to have chocolate, biscuits etc.
Earlier this year my husband had a massive stroke and life has been even more difficult since then. On top of that I care for my 98 year old father who lives close by. I try to remain upbeat and know that overeating is not helping my health, but I never seem to do anything about it.
I would be happy to hear from anyone who has any suggestions which might help kick-start me on the road to a more healhy lifestyle.
Wishing you all health and happiness xx
