I am back again, again. The Vovid experience, coupled with a couple of other challenges, knocked me for a loop. Ready to get back to a healthy lifestyle!

Back again. This time under doctors orders.
I am a 52yo married father of one. I used to be a regular on UAC, but life had other plans.
I have had some quite severe mental health challenges and part of my recovery is re-joining UAC. This is why doctors orders.
The last 16 months have been very trying. Due to medication and personal circumstances I put on over 20kg (40lbs) in that time. The medication slowed my metabolism and increased my appetite. The medications also made it mentally difficult to get out and exercise. Literally this has put me back at my starting weight (and fitness) of when I first joined UAC.
UAC had been a lifeline (literally). I used to enjoy the daily reporting and reading others accomplishments. It kept me in touch with people.
Now I need the support again. I am still on a number of medications. However, hopefully with UAC, the support and re-establishing the habits that got me to an ideal weight and fitness; I can get back there again.
I do have one advantage from where I started last time. All the knowledge from the research I had done I still have. I know what works (and what worked for me). I just need to do again what I have done before.
