Weight Loss NHS

Good morning! I've woken up today determined to lose weight and get fit. Last week I joined a ladies only gym and got back on my bike again after spinal surgery last year - cycled 5 miles on Wednesday ando 7.5 miles on Friday. I also go to pilates class on Wednesdays and walk my dog. This all sounds good but I'm finding it very hard to lose any weight. I've been on steroids which doesnt help. I'm desperate for help and guidance. I've just downloaded the 12 week plan so have some reading to do. Wish me luck. Jan

Hi and welcome Jan :)

It certainly sounds as if you have your determined head on! I'm sure, that when you make the necessary changes to your diet, those excess pounds will start to drop :)

Take a look at the Pinned Posts section, to the right of your screen (bottom, if you're using a mobile) and have a look at the Welcome Newbies thread, it has a link to the NHS 12 week plan, which is a guide to healthy living, rather that a specific diet plan.

Consider joining any, or all, of our challenges, as they're fun and motivating.

Join us for the monday group weigh-in. If you follow Zest , you'll be notified when she posts the thread. However, the latest thread can always be found in the events section, to the right of the home page.

Be active on the forum, as that's where we exchange ideas and get our daily dose of motivation and inspiration :)

Wishing you all the very best :)


Thank you. I've joined the Monday weigh in and start that tomorrow. Fingers crossed I see weight loss each week.
