Introducing myself

Hi, I've been struggling with my weight for years. I've been seeing the GP practice nurse for the past 18 months and have lost 6kg. At least I haven't put any weight on. However I 've been the same weight for the past wee while and need to find a way of motivating myself to get losing. I tried Slimming World last year and then Scottish Slimmers earlier this year but find going to classes difficult. I'm hoping that this forum will give me some ideas. I need to lose about 4 stones.

Hi and welcome Eh :)

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. The latest weigh-in thread can always be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page (bottom if you're using a mobile).

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 best with your weight loss journey :)

Hi Eh15,

Welcome to the NHS Weight Loss Forum here on HealthUnlocked - this forum is a great place for support, motivation and inspiration to lose weight. :)

Take a look at the NHS 12 Week Plan, it contains recipes and exercise plans to follow for the first twelve weeks of your journey. :D

Take a look at the left of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile device) and find the 'Pinned Posts' section, here you can find various challenges that are going on in the forum (take part in whatever ones take your fancy - if any do at all!), there is also a recipe collation there and any important posts from Admin

Also to your left is the 'Topics' area, here you can find posts related to each topic, it's good if you are looking for something specific

The Monday Group Weigh In takes place weekly and is posted alternately by Zest and moreless (I suggest you follow them, they are also our site admins), a morning session post is put live just before 06:30 and runs until midday, while the afternoon session runs from midday until 18:00 on the Friday of that week - it'll be running as usual this coming Monday, so, if you wish, you can go and post your starting weight there! :P

All that remains is to wish you a great first week on the forum - be involved because it's where we get our boost each day

Rob :D


Hello Eh15,

You are never far from help and words of wisdom here. If you need support just come and post a question and soon you will have people responding without judgeing you. Everyone has a story in here and everyone is also very kind.

I need to eat more often but very small amounts. If I get it wrong it hurts and I am unwell. Whilst it's a great motivator I would have liked to be here before my health had suffered.

Take each day as it's own 24hr's and do the best you can with them; the future you will thank you for all the things you get right.

Good luck.
