Hi, new to site

Hi, I'm a first time visitor to the site. I've struggled for years with my weight and swing between - oh well that's just what I am ( overweight) and feeling really low and unhappy with myself. I've yet to seriously launch into the 12 week plan, I think I hesitate because I'm convinced I'll fail yet again. I know that I can be very hard on myself, I have a supportive husband but I know he gets frustrated with me too.

So having introduced myself and given the impression that I am a miserable so and so, I'll sign off and go and get my tea '

Hi Walnut60,

I really like your name - and I'd like to welcome you to the forum. I know you're just getting your tea now, and I hope you enjoy it.

It can be tough when you've struggled with weight issues, but I really hope that being part of this forum will help you - as it is a supportive and friendly place, and we will do our best to support you along your journey - as we're all on the same path - and negotiating the bumps and turns that are on that path.

Please have a look at our Welcome Newbie post - it's in the Pinned posts area, and it's worth a read. Also, do join in with any Challenges that you like the look of - and especially the Monday group weigh-in - if you like the idea of a weekly weigh-in in a supportive group.

Hope to see you around and about and good luck with your goals.

Lowcal :-)

Hello and welcome Walnut60 ๐Ÿ˜Š

This is a great forum with lovely friendly people and together we are all helping each other lose weight, shed inches and get healthier and fitter ๐Ÿ˜Š

A little bit of self belief helps, I was exactly where you are last summer, but gradually over the weeks my confidence grew ๐Ÿ˜Š

Check out the links lowcal suggests, find you BMR and target calories (it may be more than you think) and we will all cheer you on as you take this journey ๐Ÿ˜Š

Very best wishes ๐Ÿ˜Š
