Hi all, I am new here and would like some advice.
I lost 2 and a half stone the year before last going to classes, but had to stop due to lack of time and money. I have put it all back on and as I get older I am finding it hard to lose weight/stick to a diet.
I am also incredibly tired, I average about 3 hours a night sleep and this is really taking its toll. I walk my dogs for between 40 and 90 minutes most days and I also have various gym equipment at home, but lately I just feel too exhausted to use it much.
I suffered a loss recently and have been feeling very upset and fragile from this, although I am now starting to feel better.
I usually eat a relatively healthy diet and don't usually have a sweet tooth, although recently have been craving sweet stuff. I drink alcohol, especially at weekends and although I have cut down, think this is making it hard to lose weight. I do not like squash or fizzy drinks or fruit juices and although I like water, I find it difficult to drink this if we go out socialising and everyone else is drinking.
I really want to combine a healthy diet with exercise in order to lose weight and keep it off, but I am not sure where to start. My husband is very unhelpful as he likes a drink and wants me to drink with him. Any advice for things that have worked for others would be gratefully appreciated.
