Day one in the Big Mother house

Okay all set ready to go, first weigh in, checked BMI, NHS site tells me I'm obese, not a nice word. So 4 stone 12 lb to lose to get me in the middle of my healthy range. Myfitnesspal site is down for maintenance, which is a shame as I was relying on that to sort my calories out and my battery has run out on my food scales. So faced with objections to start but I will not let that worry me, it's my first test. Will have a quick check now to see if myfitnesspal has woken up. Off to fight that horrible obese word. Good luck luck everyone. :)

Hi. Today's my first weigh in too. 5 stone will get me in to the healthy bmi although not the middle of it 😯. I love the myfitnesspal app. Good luck.

Ha ha I loved your post heading! Yes it's not nice being called obese but if it shocks us into action then that's a good thing. I felt the same way 2 weeks ago - am still obese but just not so shocked now! I have at least 6 stone to lose but we will get there :-) Good luck with your journey and let us know how it's going....

Hi Lorraine-Mary how are you getting on? I've got 28lbs to loose and I must say that I was quite focused on Day 1 yesterday but today I'm feeling very lethargic and full of aches and pains - must be withdrawal symptoms from having very little sugar. Just wanted to say good luck for your first week.
