    Hi @C4rtak3r lovely t meet you and welcome you to the online community. I hope you will find the site helpful.

    We done losing weight I hope it is helping you with your arthritis pain.

    I imagine though that an ex chef can produce wonderful flavoursome lower calorie foods than most of us here!

    Given your interest in food I wondered whether this might interest you?

    Best wishes

    Hi @C4rtak3r

    Well done losing weight, but as Ellen said I bet you can do low calorie really tasty stuff. How much have you lost/got left to lose if that's not too rude?

    You don't say which brand of Arthritis you have. I have inflammatory and some OA too now.

    If you are going to share any recipes I would not complain especially if some were vegan (I am also vegan)πŸ˜‹

    Anyway welcome from me too
