    So I'm looking to restart my path to getting healthier after not doing much to care for myself for the last 7 years. I use to be an avid runner who ate better and made time for myself to exercise. Looking for some motivation by fellow peers also on a health journey to better themselves. Did well before with tracking calories so hoping I can make this a daily habit.

    Yep, although I can kind of put it down to the steroids I'm taking for my lupus.

    Im sorry to hear about the Lupus, is that a recent diagnosis?
    Steroids are notorious for weight gain I've heard.

    I'm 44, and missed the 'Life begins at 40' boat due to medical and personal issues. I've never 'done' a diet or organised exercise, and it shows, I'm heavier now than I was full-term pregnant with my son, and sick and tired of living in leggings.

    I have been living in leggings for far too long. This weekend, I went through all my jeans and found a few pair that fit. Seriously, I have not worn anything other than leggings (and the occasional dress at work because it is still comfy) for over 3 years. I think that is my problem, if my jeans were uncomfortable, I knew I had to do something! I have made myself a promise to start wearing them again. I remember after I had my daughter, I was so disappointed that I had to wear a size 5. Now, I am not sure one leg would fit in a 5! But I am working on it. Good luck with your journey!!

    I have one pair of jeans that still sort-of fit, but only on the second day after laundry, on day 1, they audition to be a magician, and attempt to saw me in half. Living in leggings has been an opt-out, not acknowledging how much I’d bulked up, because I wasn’t wearing ‘real’ clothes. I have cupboards full of clothes I don’t wear, because, apart from the supermarket every couple of weeks, I don’t go anywhere, haven’t bought new clothes in years because I REFUSE to buy bigger sizes.

    I need to pull myself out of this victim-mindset, the last 6 years, and the last 5 in particular, have been challenging in various ways, but self-identifying as a manatee isn’t a solution. ‘Fell off the wagon’ in spectacular style today, with the 700-cal lunch, and now I’m sulking about spoiling what had been a fairly consistent decent run. (Food-wise, I could tell I was heading for a crash/blip because I hadn’t done any exercise for a few days, that’s a behavioural pattern to watch myself for.)

    Onwards and upwards, the days are getting warmer and longer in the UK, I will be able to spend more time gardening, and the lighter mornings mean I can get out walking around the streets before ALL the dog-walkers come out.

    Yeah - diagnosed in December after a year of agony and misery.
