Welcome, welcome, Sessile Sue.
I'm fifties, fat and sessile, too.
Best of luck to you. You can do it if you really want to. I thought it was going to kill me but decided at the rate I was moving, how much difference would that really make? So I stuck with it and I'm losing. Slowly, like I do everything else
I was snappish, among other things, in P1 and spent a lot of time alone in my room for the sake of my long-suffering family.
Then I joined this website and now I exercise my mood swings right here!
I used to work with a Doctor who treated alcoholics.
When they left the hospital he would always say "Don't pick up a drink even if your ass falls off".
I just kept repeating that, substituting "sandwich" to adapt it to my own addiction.
And a lot of it DID fall off, yay!
Congratulations on your 5lbs. Wonderful. Keep Beachy and Carry On.
