      I agree Kerry I am 4 kgs over what I normally am and it is affecting my blood pressure. I eat healthily and walk regularly.Just can't shift the weight!

      i also have lost some self esteem. Please let me know how you go and I'm determined to find  a solution! So I'll help you once I do some research.
