I have been overweight most of my adult life, now 43. In the last couple of years I have been very ill with both heart problems and large blood clots on my lungs. Amazingly these were apparently not caused by my weight. Being so ill has meant that physical activity has been mostly impossible and quite a lot of comfort eating has been happening.

The result of this is that I am now about 10 stone overweight. Horrific I know!

Everything else in my life is going really well for the first time ever, just need to sort this.

I am under no illusion that this can be fixed quickly but any advice/tips greatly received!

Thanks

I did well actually. Stuck to what I had planned to eat, no extras.

Took my dog for an hours walk too.

Just got to keep it up now. Day ones probably the easiest!
