I read the above and saw that it featured an article on "Couple of the Year". A husband and wife lost approx 15 stone between them based on diet and exercise. The wife had been diagnosed with Churg Struss in 2005 and had lung complications and gained a lot of weight. She felt constant hunger due to medication and steroids but has managed to lose a lot of weight. I found it quite motivating to read their story. I think we have all been there with the weight gain and not being able to exercise due to illness.
