    Hi everyone, get your tissues ready!
    My name is Lisa, I am 7 stone overweight. All this gained during the last 3 years,not really overeating or sat on my bum all day, I work hard. Im a single mum and I am obese. Recently found out that I have hashimotos thyroiditis (auto-immune disease) which, Im told, has caused all this weight gain and how crappy and tired I feel all the time. So now this weight and size 18-20 frame is interfering with my work - on a ward - I cant do my duties without sweating and panting. So..great I have a diagnosis - I can get medication. Went to see the endocrinologist who took my blood pressure which was through the roof. cos of my weight they reckon, so now I have hypertension. I cant have thyroid meds right now but need to lose weight. Chicken and egg Im thinking?

    So, I need to lose weight as soon as poss so I can get my thyroid meds which might help with losing weight so I started a vlcd (with approval from my GP for 3 months) just to get my weight down a little. 2nd day of the shakes and I almost pass out in the street, apparently I cant do the diet because I need to eat little and often. My blood sugars were dipping (possibly pre-diabetic)

    So, sorry to go on but here I am at slimming world. Hoping to make a life change in my eating and get my weight down and blood pressure down hopefully. Id love some friends and people to buddy up with. I am not expecting any drastic weight loss but anything is good right now.

    Please get in touch and speak soon x

    By the way Im 32 x

    Good idea to go to meeting - is there anyone who could look after the children while you are at the meeting so you can have some 'me' time?
