hello: I am looking to lose 2 stone which is... - Weight Loss NHS
Hello again Shirehorse, I have welcomed you on a previous post, sorry.
We have lots of members who are unable to exercise for one reason or another but still successfully loose weight. There are lots of exercises on You-tube that you can do in your own home, even sitting down.
Although exercise is good for us, weight loss is mostly down to what we eat. It sounds as though you have a head start - well done for cutting back on the sugar
Are you eating enough? Take a look at the NHS BMI calculator to calculate your own personal calorie range. You should aim towards the top end and come down slowly as you loose weight.
You might find this an interesting read as well
Another thought, as you are so good at planning, take a look at the Daily Diary and enter your menu plan here each day. We will be able to see what you are eating then and may be able to make further suggestions.

Until recently I was a disabled powerchair user, but I was able to lose a pound a week by eating less.
You (like many on this forum) might have metabolic (insulin) problems which would make it difficult (but not impossible) for you.
As lucigret says, you might be eating too little.
Have you tried counting calories, or have you just cut down on the fattening stuff?
It can take a while to cut down, and let your appetite adjust it's self to your calorie requirements.
Hi , I am also in a similar boat, although I have no none illness as such, apart from a heart murmur, which I found out last year, due to having chest pains, which was a result from severe anxiety. I too cannot shift my weight, since going through the menapause. I did have glandular fever when I was younger, and I am now wondering if my thyroid is on slow mode again.
I know have you feel, I am perimenopause and have also put on weight around stomach and gone up 2 dress sizes, I have bought a book called the natural menopause solution, it has a 30 day slim down diet plan, which has helped me kick start my weight loss ( it is American so you do have to substitute some of the food) it does involve calorie counting
