Hi all

I am a 57 year old woman and approx 6 years ago I started to lose weight dramatically for no reason. I was totally checked out, chest x-ray (I'm a smoker) camera up and camera down, thyroid scan, stomach scan, the lot. No reason was found for the loss of weight.

I am 5'0 and have been around seven stone since then. However since having a 'tummy bug' recently I have realised that I NEED some extra weight - simply because I don't have any 'reserves' to call on.

I am recently retired and to be honest I don't do much exercise....

Any suggestions?
