Hi all, I've posted on here now and then and always got great advice.
I wanted to tell you about my latest developments, hopefully it may help others.
I've been suffering with depression off and on for over 20 years. Underactive thyroid diagnosed about 18 years ago. Felt menopausal about 4 or 5 years.
I've never been one for exercise, but I've joined a gym. 4 weeks ago I started doing a healthy eating regime and 2 weeks later I joined the gym. I feel so much better! I know they say exercise helps but I've always avoided it! Lol. I absolutely love it
Now I'm not saying that it's a magic cure all but it's helped me loads. I've lost 8lbs, look more toned, have more energy and feel much better in myself. I could say I wish I had done it ages ago but I don't think my mind was in the right place. I'm 56 and want to be healthy and feel well. I've got another 10lbs or so to loose but I've learnt that sometimes your weight doesn't change much but your measurements do. I've lost 1.5 inches off my waist since joining the gym. I lost most of the weight in the 2 weeks I was doing the healthy eating.
Sorry this is getting long!
Just want to say it's never too late, start slowly and build it up. You are worth it!
