Hello Happy Slimmers!!

I'm 79 on Saturday and read the post first thing in a morning and anytime I'm feeling hungry, I'm disabled and do chair exercises when I remember !! My first week of starting once again to try & lose weight, about 5 st to go WOW!! But with all your help feel I can achieve it this time, I'm due a hernia operation July/Aug time and know that losing weight will help me know end, so any advice and your company along the way would really be appreciated xx

Hi lathe,

I'd like to wish you a Very Happy Birthday for Saturday. :-) Hope you've got something nice planned to celebrate. :-)

I know you're hoping to lose some weight before your hernia operation in July/Aug time, and wondered if you've had a look at the NHS Choices 'Healthy eating' pages - the NHS 12 week plan is worth a look, and there is also another forum called 'NHS weight loss' which might be worth joining as well, to give you additional support - they do lots of weekly activities and weigh-ins.

Here's the NHS Healthy Eating pages:

Good luck!

Zest :-)

I've just had a look at this nhs site and see some great recipes but I would just caution users not to use an of the seed oils in the recipes; that's Rape seed, or Sunflower seed etc as they are not healthy foods. Use olive oil in every case but try to avoid over-heating it.

Enjoy your food, life is to be enjoyed. Tibbly

You will lose most of the weight through a good diet, so don't worry to much about the exercises.
