  • 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 Lowcal , moreless and the gang then do.

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

  • 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
