Thank you so much! I will look at the NHS plan💪🏽😘

You might like to join the Weight Loss NHS forum on this site. It's a really useful resource and everyone is very supportive. Most people on there tend to use the NHS 12 week plan (as recommended by Cwtch2018 above) which is free and a good plan to follow. I'm combining C25K with this and have lost 5kg so far.

That’s amazing I will have a look! Thank you- and well done on loosing 5kg, hopefully I won’t be far behind you☺️

If you read the guide to the plan healthunlocked.com/couchto5... it explains that C25K is not a weight loss programme, but it will tone you up , improve your circulation, respiration and general fitness but it will also make you feel better about yourself, reducing the likelihood that you will want to eat unhealthily.

I do appreciate that- I am also hoping it will improve my overall attitude to fitness which will eventually lead to weight loss! I will look at the guide, thank you x

Oh it will improve your fitness no doubt and you won't want to spoil feeling good about yourself by eating rubbish and if you do you feel so bad and guilty 😢

This is so true I actually lost nothing to start with and I actually gained a couple of pounds however my body changed shape and I dropped a size in clothes, I felt fantastic, my breathing, stamina everything improved and I lost the urge to eat unhealthy . Once I had finished the C25K my weight began falling off .

I am so happy for you! That is exactly what I am hoping will happen to me😇wishing you all the best! X
