Tankerbell to Tinkerbell....I hope !!

I'm new here. After going to the doctors for an MOT I found that my BMI is horrendous and I decided I had to do something about my unhealthy weight. As I've got older I've found it an uphill struggle to shift weight. I love my food. I have and can be very active, however I have had a few problems over the last few years. Firstly I ruptured my tibial tendons in both the left and right ankles and had to have them repaired. Just recently had a surgical procedure on both my big toes as I've had ingrowing toe nails for years and hears hoping that this surgery works. Could not go swimming for six weeks. Week four I managed to get back on my bike even though it was a bit uncomfortable and then last Thursday, at week five I decided to get back to my deep aqua class. I'm hoping by joining this group it gives me a bit more incentive and a huge kick up the backside!

Hi and welcome Tankerbell :)

It sounds as if you've had a lot to contend with, but you've obviously got your determined head on which means you can't fail! :)

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 and myself , you'll be notified when we post 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 :)
