Hi and welcome Laura :)

You've come to just the right place for support and motivation. I don't work either, so that leaves us in the enviable position of having the choice of how and when to exercise :)

Take a look at the pinned posts section to the top right of your screen (bottom, if you're using a phone) and starting with our welcome newbie thread, read through all the information and challenges that are on offer.

Consider joining our monday group weigh-in, which is non-judgemental and supportive and helps to keep us accountable. The latest thread can be found in the events section, beneath the pinned posts section, on the home page.

Be active on the forum, as that's where we get to know each other and where all the latest information, inspiration and motivation can be found.

Wishing you all the very best as you continue your journey to health and happiness :)

Hi Lauraj and welcome, I started my weight loss exactly 6 weeks ago today on Monday I had lost 1 stone exactly I started at 17.1 so 16.1 when weighing in on Monday. I hope you download the 12 week plan it really is easy to do and you kind of start to think differently about what foods you choose to eat to keep within your allowance, nothing is denied, I think that is why it works it is not a diet but a new mind set on eating. I work for my husband but am at home too, I recently got over a period of depression due to personal circumstances and know how hard it is to make yourself look positively but you can do it because you are in control of yourself no one else. Do you have a pedometer or fit bit type of fitness band it is good to measure your steps during the day and your active minuets etc. I saw you are doing SW good if it works for you if not give the 12 week plan a go. Good luck keep posting your progress as there are lots of tips on motivational tips to keep you going on here.

Hello and welcome

Well done on healthy eating and making good lifestyle choices. If your weight is not coming down you may just need a coupke of tweaks to your food intake, just a small reduction in portion size and a gentle increase in activity, you will be surprised at the results quite simple changes can make 😊 This will also help the potential health issues 😊

Good luck
