Aw well I love you all!
I'm also overweight, and like NR have an under active thyroid on 150 mg of thryroxine at the mo, but it fluctuates from year to year. Inside me there is a 30 year old me trying to get out!
I think a lot of it is to do with our age, menopause,genes, and eating more that I think I do! Hubby and I are trying to cut down on alcohol, as when we have a glass, I normally open the peanuts and crisps up to go with it! Not a good idea. Trouble is, as the seasons change and the nights start to get darker, I always want something comforting and usually fattening to eat.

Hahaha - I asked for that, didn't I!!

Can I be a Pink Lady, rather than a (green) Granny Smith or a rough old Russett?

Could I be a Laxton Superb, then we have Beauty of Bath. Jane lives near to Bath and she is a beauty.

oh dear it's taken hold of me Devonshire Quarrenden for Buddy, Norfolk Royal for NannyRosie, Muscadet de Dieppe for Enid (makes Calvados, yum), Fiesta for our party girl GG, Rosemary Russet for Rosynose, York Imperial for Beth, Vista Bella for NV and I would have to be a Chelmsford Wonder! These are all genuine apple varieties and if we just nibbled on these - no weight problems
