I'm 46 and live in a village in Herts, UK (near london) with my partner and our 2 daughters, aged 16 and 18.

I have used FS before and love the community for its support, friendship, info and great ideas.

I've had a rough few of years, but am turning my life and health around. I have EDS, a genetic condition that affects me from migraines in my head to aches in the tips of my toes, so exercise is limited.

on this journey to better health, I've learnt too many additives, refined carbs and nightshades inflame my joints.
IF has improved my insulin resistance from PCOS and joint inflammation and poor mobility.

So i aim to follow a WOE that improves my health and fits in with my lifestyle and gradually decrease my weight and increase my mobility. I work part time, but aim to increase my hours and income in 2018!

I enjoy family time, helping others, cooking, and have just joined a book club and signed up for Gaelic lessons..a language that i spoke as a child and many of my relatives speak .I am trying to learn new things to improve my confidence and to fill my leisure time as my children become more independent.

I look forward to reconnecting with my buddies who knew me as poppycom and making new friends as we all go on this journey to better health together.
2018 is gonna be our year :)
