    Hello, I'm 37 and I don't know what I weigh, but I'm a size 26 and struggling with medical issues that could only be improved by losing a significant amount of weight. I've tried everything in the past but I'm going to give this one last go here and hopefully make some friends who can help push me.

    All the best to you, but you'll have to be a bit more precise. If you don't know your starting point, you really won't know when you reach the finish line, nor what it will take to get there.

    Haha quirks....I have many but they all seem normal cause it's things I just do

    The sports I do are somewhat quirky. I'm very competitive yet somehow unambitious. Get my brother and me together and it's like we're performing. Lotsa quirks but to me it just makes life fun

    And autumn has well and truly started here. Cold, grey and drizzly rain. Meh. The trees are pretty though.

    I found out yesterday that I have high blood pressure. I kinda felt hard done by, as I'm living relatively healthy and I'm not overweight (even when I started back here I was at a BMI 26), so it's "not fair". Ordered myself a blood pressure monitor so I can keep track of it for a month or so. If it stays high I have to come back and get bloods done.

    Ali, the orthopedic specialist I saw ran a battery of tests and concluded the joint was too strong to warrant surgery. Sent me to do PT and although it has gotten better I believe in my core that there is something in there that isn't right.

    You should push to get it checked more

    Mine was sore for years and started giving out as I was doing push ups so I decided it was time to take action. I was sent to physio, 6 months later with no improvement I was sent for an ultrasound. I had to convince people it wasn't right because I had no tradition issues other than some pain. My range of motion was completely within the normal range even up to having surgery. The ultrasound showed a significant tear. I was sent for more physio and to see a sports dr. I tried the cortisone shot which did nothing and then got an MRI showing it was hanging on by a thread but I had good muscle tone which was why I could still function. When I had the surgery it was completely torn. I recovered pretty quickly cause I'm odd and heal quickly and now about a year out I have full range of normal motion and no pain!

    TL:dr you know your body best. If you think there's more the push for help

    Haha. I have several times been asked if I'm a university student. Being active is the fountain of youth. Oh and before my surgery I was told I'm young so a good candidate. I was like can you write that down So i can share it hahaha

    I know how you feel. Checking every morning and I'm convinced my monitor is malfunctioning. Usually get a better reading when I check again 5 minutes later.
