New to this Stuff

I'm just setting out on the 12 week weight loos programme having been overweight or obese for the past 25 years... Over the years I've tried to lose weight on my own with varying degrees of success and failure but having reached an age when I feel the need to look after myself a bit better I have set about trying to control my food intake a lot more seriously and up the exercise levels to see where it takes me... 5 days into this means there is still a long way to go but just not eating chocolate for a few days has made me start to feel a lot better.. I've always exercised whatever my BMI and have enjoyed getting out on my bike and and had a good swim... I am just hoping going public will help me stay on the straight and narrow... I know there will be bad days but I hope they will get fewer and further between and less disastrous as I progress through this next 3 months

  • Hi and welcome Ken :)

    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.

    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 Zest 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 Ken58,

    Welcome to the Weight Loss NHS forum. I am really glad to hear you're setting out on the NHS 12 week plan, and I would like to wish you all the best with it. If you've not yet seen it, maybe read our Welcome Newbie post - it's in the Pinned posts area, and it's really good as it describes what is going on in the forum, and what people have found helpful.

    I hope you'll join in with any Challenges that are going on - there's quite a few at the moment, and they're good fun. The Monday group weigh-in is something to consider too, if you're interested - have a look in the Events section for the latest thread - to see if you like the look of it or not.

    Wishing you a great week.

    Lowcal :-)
