What a difference a week makes!

Just wanted to say a little thank you to those of you on this forum. One week ago I joined feeling really low after a health check up. Based on the advice and support from here I got myself organised and focused this week on my portion size. I have used an app to track my calories and keep below 1500 cals and cut out refined carbs. I have been to the gym (not been for 6 months) and I feel great. My tummy is less bloated and I feel like I have more energy! Haven't weighed myself yet since last week, I've become obsessed with this in the past and quickly given up if I haven't lost when I expected to. Just need to keep it up now but I feel more motivated than I ever have after finding this site and realising I'm not alone. :-)

  • That's great you feel so much better. The forum is such a help and I don't think I would have lost weight if I didn't have the support. You'll feel better in and out now you know you've got support, advice and motivation whenever you need it. I read the posts everyday which sure does help and keeps me positive. We all know exactly what it feels like and are on the journey together. Onwards and downwards!

  • Hi Katie, I'm happy for you that you are feeling more positive, it's a great feeling isn't it! It sounds like you have made a good start in making those changes and I have no doubt that they will pay off and you will reach your goals! I second what eeek said about this forum, it's so nice to know we're not alone in this and will support and encourage one another through it together. I also get a bit obsessed with weighing so I am just sticking to once a week, and also measuring waist/hips/arms as sometimes when it doesn't show on the scale there's a loss somewhere else! Good luck with the coming week, keep up the good work! 🌸

  • The support and encouragement on here is amazing, it's definitely helped keep me on track ... Keep up the good work 🌸

  • So glad you are feeling so much better, this forum has helped me so much over the last few months. I try not to focus too much on the scales i use other factors like my measuring tape and scales that show fat and muscle % as well as weight, but feeling better in myself is the biggest bonus of all :-) all the best

  • That's a great start!! I'm happy for you! Keep it up!
