hi all.
i have finally bitten the bullet and joined yet another forum hoping there is someone who understands my issues rather than people saying "you can hardly walk, what do you expect"

im sarah, im a 35yo "single" mum with 5 children at home (aged 15,13,7,3 and 2) i have had epilepsy and asthma for as long as i can remember but in the last 16 months i have been diagnosed with cysts in kidneys, gallstones (still awaiting surgery) and arthritis.

mobility is a huge issue for me which makes exercise very difficult. i have had major weight issues since i was a child (i was diagnosed with bulimia when i was 11 and again when pregnant at 21) but am fighting very hard not to get into that position again.
since giving birth to my youngest daughter 2 years ago i have gained 3 stone on top of the 1 i already had to lose and now im struggling.

anyway, thats my intro for now and i look forward to "meeting" you all.
please, if anyone has any tips to help me improve my health by losing this weight, im happy to read them
