Its not easy but we want to change a lifetime of eating habits. Good luck starting your journey and keep posting. Xx

  • Hi Colin no way are you alone, I have posted some info on youlookstunnings post just scroll down to view it about the forum and keep looking on here for tips, encouragement and ispirational stories any advice just ask there are lots of people who will give their advice freely.

    I have tried many times as have lots of people on here to lose weight and yes put it back on again and more but the 12 week plan is brilliant and re educates your mindset about food choices.

    I am sure you will have many other welcoming posts today so Good Luck you have made the best start we are in this together👍😊

  • Hi col67 , I started the NHS 12 week plan last Monday & I have found all the people on this forum to be really supportive which is brilliant. I know that if I have a bad week & put some weight back on , everyone will be supportive as we are all on the same journey .

    My plan is to just take each day at a time & learn what works best for me , if I have a bad spell then I will put that behind me & move forward.

    Good luck

  • Thanks everyone for the great replys feeling really strong and motivated looking forward to changing my life for the better being able to do all the things i want to with my wife and kids instead of struggling behind them out of breath.
