My names Jen im 28. I am a below knee amputee and I have arthritus in my good knee joint, and problems with my wrists. I spend 95% of my time in a wheelchair. I am currently undergoing tests for MS.
I am married and have a 5 yr old. I suffer with chronic pain and therefor find it hard to cook-my husband is pretty good but not very adventurous with food.
I am currently around 17st - 238lbs. I used to be very active and very slim and I hate being this big-my joints are sore and the weight im carrying cant be helping.
I have a lot of weight to lose. I am not feeling all that well and so I have decided to start watching what I eat a bit and not snacking, rather than going all out and burning out too quickly.
I love swimming but cannot transfer into the pool without suffering a great deal of pain.
I need to get down to about 16 stone to be able to use a hoist to get into a pool and so this is my first challenge.
Any body who has any words of wisdom or who fancies a chatter to help keep motivated please ass me as a buddy.
