Hi chunkiechez,


It sounds like it's been a rough time for you, but you sound ready to make changes for your health and your plan sounds a good one. It's all about making small changes and moving more😃

Have a look at the ' Pinned posts' section and if you fancy joining the Monday weigh in with Zest , moreless and the gang then do.

You will find loads of inspiration and motivation, and I look forward to catching up on you journey.

I was 29st 55 weeks ago, just over 20st now - it is do able :)

This forum is a great place for support, inspiration and determination! I hope you'll settle in very easily!

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the pinned post section to the right of this thread for some tricks and tips to get you started :)

The Monday Group Weigh-In is currently going on, so feel free to go and do your first weigh in there now - a great way to get started :) You can find it in the events section on the forum homepage.

There is also many challenges currently being run on the forum, many of them can also be found in the 'pinned post' section to your right :) There, you will also find the recipe thread.

It is also good to set yourself mini targets to reach on the way to your main one :)

I hope that you have a great first week - keep us updated of your progress.

Rob :D

Hi chunkiechez68 and welcome 😆

RobLandsdown91 and flossie358 have both given you some fantastic advice which i cant really add too.

Just wanted to wish you luck with your journey ... youve made the hard first step the rest should be (as we say) onwards and downwards 👍

Get involved with the forum and keep us posted 😀

Good luck. Claire x


Hi Chunkiechez68, Sounds like you've had a tough couple of years, it's great that you've found this forum - It's already motivating me loads, I've also got a lot of weight to lose. You've lost weight before, so believe in yourself that you can do it again. My advice is PLAN PLAN PLAN what you are going to eat in advance. I like to know the day before what I will be eating the following day, so I can make sure i have all the ingredients. I have a wholemeal salad roll, and fruit and yoghurt for lunch - It is very portable! I also take another piece of fruit and grapes to work, so I am not tempted by the 5.00pm munchies on the way home. Hoping we can all support each other - Good luck for your journey. xxx


hi everyone hope you all ok well what can i say i turned my back for a while have been working loads and no this is not an excuse (ok yes it is did not want to start it then was not ready ) and then 3 weeks ago i ended up in hospital with a busted abscesses but instead of going out in busted inside me on my booby mmmm not nice at all was on 2 weeks leave from work 2 my luck but in a way its done me a favour gave me a wake up call i needed no it got nothing to do with my weight they said but i feel if i needed surgery i could have been risky and then to have some people who was meant to be looking after you talk about you saying wow you would have thought she would have done something about her weight before she got that big is not the experience i ever want to go through again and i broke down because of that i have reason and bloody good ones why i put weight on but not that its got anything to do with them i will never ever treat anyone like that ever or judge anyway with the help of his forum and me breaking down at my drs who i can say is brill im going to be seeing a health trainer who will look at the full circle of my life and where i fall and i know its the crap i east instead off planning im takeaway and chocolate when im down none in the house now so cant have it i go next tuesday so i will come in let you know what i weigh and what happens im going to join the monday weigh in and im going to think about batch cooking to and like you all said plan a head that is true when im at work i struggle with lunch and im not a jacket potatoes person and i am trying to cut out the bread i have a bad relationship with it thankyou for having me here x x x x x x
