  • Hi and welcome nanakins :)

    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.

    Look at the Topics section beneath that, for posts that could answer any questions you may have.

    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 Lowcal and myself , you'll be notified when we post the threads. 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 :)

  • Hi Nanakins,

  • Hi Nanakins,

    Great to hear from you.

    Unfortunately there isn't a way to add photos to replies, but you could do a new post and therefore add your update photo that way - Congratulations on losing 20kg in a few months, and I know you're feeling like you're on a pleateau at the moment - so hope that your new vegan diet menu plan will ensure you are able to move forward ok.

    Wishing you success and a great week ahead.

    Lowcal :-)
