Weight gain and exercise

I have put on loads of weight since I finished work in 2005 and because of the pain I cannot walk that far and riding a bike is out of the question.

Gaining Weight

Suggestions please...
After four years of limited activity due to Fibromyalgia and also having an under active Thyroid, my weight is ballooning.
At 5ft 4inches height and with a current weight of 13stone, I am now officially obese.

Gastric band surgery

Hi all,

I am seriously considering getting a gastric band fitted next month. I have gained 7 stone since my diagnoses in the last 2 years of Bipolar, Fibro and sciatica caused by all the meds i'm on. Anyway like I said I want the band but my partner and mum are telling me with my health I shouldn't do it (I also have adhesions inside caused by my C-sections that cause extreme pain). I ...
