Thank you for the reply. I have lost 10kg in the last 4 weeks, taking 30+ minute walks and swimming, I'm off anything sugar and starting to learn about carbs. Off the booze as well as I liked my wine, prob too much! Seeing my nurse tomorrow, she is the only one I have to hold a conversation with about all this which is why I'm looking to buddy someone, I did this with my cancer recovery and found it really supportive. You have an amazing story, well done you. I hope to follow the same path.
