So a little about me......
I'm Sarah, i'm 37 years old, and I'm mum to 2 boys, aged 20 years and 7 years.
I have always had problems with weight since I hit my teens. I've been on more diets than I care to mention for all of my adult life from weightwatchers, slimming world, to lighterlife and cambridge! I had great results with the VLCD's but it was short lived. I have learnt that the only real way to get in shape is to stick with good old fashioned calorie counting and exercise.
At my heaviest I was 18st 6lb in July 2009 and then I settled at 17st 9lb in July 2011. After another couple of years wasting time hopping between various plans yet again I did get down to 13st 10lb in summer 2014 but it was short lived when I became poorly. I found myself creeping back up over the months and I was soon back at 16st again!! There is no way I want to be this and I am sick of yoyo dieting so I have started to count calories and increase my activity as much as I can. So here I am in November 2016 at 16st with a goal in mind of 10st 7lb, so 5 1/2 stone to go.
I have numerous health issues such as fibromyalgia, cervical spondylosis, oesteoarthritis, ME, chronic migraines, mortons neuroma of both feet and a long term knee injury I did in 2012!! So you can imagine the meds I am on and the pain etc it all causes, but I am determined to get as much of my health back as I can and look after what I have!!
I really am looking forward to making some new friends on here, offering each other support and advice and sharing our inspirational progress :)
Wish me luck as I sure do need it!! xx
