Dear Leedslas18. I put on about 6 stone after taking certain prescribed tablets for over 7 years. This then led to having a hip replacement 2 years ago and I was then quite inactive. This September I started a free "Couch to 5k" course at my local park. I am now on week 9 and feeling very energetic and enthusiastic. It has also helped improve my mobility and we are all aiming to do the local 5k park run on 8th December 2018. it is really worth looking into (plus I have lost some weight without really thinking about it). I am also part of their facebook group (632 members) who are all really supportive. it is worth giving it a go.
