I'm 30, a single mum to 3 and have the following list of diagnoses:




Psychosis with auditory and visual hallucinations


Hypermobile ehlers danlos syndrome

Psoriatic arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis

Subrapubic disfunction

De Quervains tenosynovitis


Binge eating disorder

I use a walking frame to help me mobilise and I am currently 19st 10lb.

Ive joined weight watchers, have a load of healthy snack options in.

I plan on getting between 6 and 8 thousand steps a day (have been slowly working up from 2000 for the last year)

I'm going to start keeping a journal and mark all appointments in a diary.

I'm going to do some gentle yoga every day, even if I only manage ten minutes.

Come cheer me on, join me in changing your life, or simply wish me luck.

Honestly, you'll start to feel the benefits of some exercise really quickly. You can do this 😃

Zeebeededodah Tue 31-Aug-21 20:44:52

I'll cheer you on. You sound super positive which is half the battle. Keep going, and remember the end goal - each time you choose a healthier option you are winning. Forgive yourself if you muck up and get back on it.

Will look forward to some positive updates

Brilliant! Good for you - I wish you every success. smile

Bizjustgotreal Tue 31-Aug-21 20:47:50

You've got this!

What's the end goal? What exactly is the you you want to see in a month, a year, a decades time?

Have a number in mind, a visual image of how your life will be better.

It looks like you've been handed more than your fair share of hardship, but you'll definitely feel better for the increase in exercise.

Sending willpower and self-belief rather than luck! Well done for deciding to start, that’s always the hardest part. Hope you get the outcome you deserve, and a positive impact on all areas of your life!
