Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis, a form of arthritis that affects people with Psoriasis. Its effects have been devastating, but with current drugs its possible to live a fairly normal life. I do miss being able to do some things, such as Ten Pin Bowling and drinking beer, but overall my quality of life has been fairly good.
Recently however, I have noticed that I am putting even more weight on (I used to be around 17-18st) and this is adding additional strain on my feet and ankles, two areas badly affected by the arthritis. So...
I decided to lose the extra weight, and as much additional weight, as possible. This will require not just a diet, not just some exercise, but a complete change in my attitude to life. My goal is two lose around 5 stone over a 12 month period, though I may need to rethink that once I start.
Once I start I will post my initial weight, and then its up to you how, and if, you help out.
The charity I have selected is one close to my heart. They were one of the main sources of information I had about my illness and gave me hope when I needed it.
