Hi there. I am new to the forum. I am starting the 12 week weight loss plan and couch to 5k on the 1st September. I'm starting a new job and going from shift work in pubs to much more regular hours in a school so it's time for a completely fresh start. I am wondering if there's anyone out there who's also on or starting the plan who would be up for meeting once a week for a weigh in/catch up in or around the Harrow area? I've tried so many times in the past to lose weight and do really well for a couple of weeks and then have 1 slip and completely give up, so the support of others who are also on the plan and can share their tips/advice for getting back on track would be great and it would be nice to be able to share in our successes.
My name is Carli and I'm 27 years old. I am currently classed as obese, with a BMI of 37, so I have a lot of work to do! I start a new job in September as a teaching assistant at a special needs school in September. I have tried many diets including slimming world, weight watchers, Rosemary Connelly, and even hypnotherapy, all to no avail. I am keen to address my weight problem as I don't want to end up with more serious health complications such as diabetes.
I really hope there is someone out there who would be able to do this, the face-to-face support would be invaluable to me, and I feel that this would help to spur me on in my quest to ditch all this extra weight. Of course, any online help and support would also be much appreciated, I understand that due to geography and work and family life etc may not allow for a weekly meeting.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
