Hi Everyone!

Hi there everyone!
 
I'm here as a total beginner and looking first of all to see if what I want to achieve is possible at all. I'll start by explaining my situation first. Unfortunately, I am in a sad state of affairs 
 
I am 27 years old and have a wonderful partner and 2 year old son. Unfortunately, I have always been a big lad and things now are completely out of control. I now weigh over 27 stone and have a range of weight related health problems, including sleep apneoa, type 2 diabetes, cellulites infection damage and an arthritic right knee (I know, it's disgraceful for a guy my age!).
 
I am looking to lose all my excess weight and build muscle. Here's the catch. As well as my health problems to contend with, I am on a mega tight budget. I am looking to spend around £20-25 a week on food, I can't afford a gym membership but I do have an exercise bike and a small pair of dumbbells. I also have a mountain bike. And to add to the mix, my partner and I are due to get married on 1st October, so I'd like to at least lose a little weight before then.
 
So, is what I want to do achievable with the constraints I have? If so, can anyone give me any suggestions at all? I'd love to be able to 'buddy' up as it were, as I often find my self completely demoralised due to my problems, which leads to being depressed, and ultimately losing my battle against the bulge.
 
I'm really looking forward to starting and getting to know some of you on here. Thanks loads for any help you can give me,
 
Elltel.
