Hi Lisa,

I would definitely recommend taking a look at the NHS website pages, if you've not already done so. The link is here:


There's a 12 week structured plan, and it's got lots of sensible advice and information for healthy eating and exercise.

Lots of people in the community do regular weigh-ins, and I do one on a Monday which is entitled 'Please Join Me for a Monday weigh-in' (current date in brackets), and quite a few people join in on that one - you'd be very welcome to join us. Anyone is welcome!

I think the community are very friendly and supportive, and I'm sure you'll find that too.

Good luck with your weight loss journey. Whatever you decide to do to lose your weight, I'm sure you'll find support and advice here.

Have a great weekend and a good week ahead.

Lowcal :-)

hi lisa,

I dont know if this is a great advise BUT it works for me. I swap milk chocolate for 78% Dark chocolate (get a good brand).. its so reach and full of flavor that you would only have a small piece of it.


Welcome, I hope you find what you need in this community. Start by dowloading an app on your phone to keep track of calories (Fat Secret, My Fitness Pal...), it's a great aid! Good luck!


Thank you don,t have a mobile but have a book that ells me how much fat and suger are in certain foods,thanks for your message ,good luck to you too ,have a great sunday!!
