In 2016 Dad had a minor stroke, then they discovered he had problems affecting heart & eyes as well. He needs quite a bit more support, my stress levels went up as did my blood pressure. Concentrating on Dad rather than me, IBS-wise &weight-wise I've gone backwards - by Jan 2017 I was at an all time high of 248lbs (17st10lbs).

Doc has referred me to slimming world, but I need to get my IBS under control so combining SW and Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It looks daunting, 6 stone (84lbs) to lose, so I am breaking it down into 3 main stages with loads of mini goals to keep me motivated!

Starting date: 12th Jan 2017
Health goals:
1) Get my guts in order
2) Get off blood pressure medication
Weight loss goals:
Two interim goals of 224lbs(16st) and 196lbs(14st), then a final goal of 164lbs(11st10lbs). That still leaves me technically overweight, but quite frankly, I don't care :-)
