Hi, my name is Vicky, I am 32 and a Mum to my adorable 5 year old son. I have battled with my weight ever since overcoming anorexia when I was 17. I pretty much allowed myself to eat what I wanted and as much as I wanted when I was pregnant and from being a size 12/14 and weighing 11st, I rocketed up to a size 24 and weighed in at 20 stone. I am now size 16/18 and weigh 16st having an uphill battle with my weight once again. I have decided to do the 12 week plan to see if I can manage to shift a little bit more. I need support as I cant do it alone.

Hi Vicky,

Welcome to the Weight Loss NHS forum. It's great to hear you're going to do the NHS 12 week plan, and I hope you enjoy it and I'd like to wish you success with your weight loss journey. Do read our Welcome Newbie post, to help orientate you to the things going on in the forum, and do join in with anything you like the look of. You'll find it in the Pinned posts area - right-hand-side of the homepage, or towards the bottom of your screen, if you're accessing via a mobile device.

Maybe see you in our Monday group weigh-ins, if you'd like to join in with a weekly weigh-in in a supportive group. You'd be very welcome to join us, and the latest thread is always in the Events section (below the Pinned posts).

We have weight loss badges too, and the lowest one is 7lbs, so when the time comes, and if you'd like to have a weight loss badge to mark your achievement, then don't hesitate to ask either myself or moreless - and we will give you a badge. There is also the option of a "Newbie" badge, which is also an option, so let us know if you'd like one of those.

Have a great weekend, it's nearly here!

Hi Vicky

Welcome to the forum. Spend some time reading about others it certainly gives you inspiration 😊. Currently when I'm feeling like having something to eat that I shouldn't I log into this site! I soon forget 😊. Its heart warming to find others that think and feel similar . Good luck with your first week xx


Welcome to the forum 😀 I hope you are able to turn to us for support when you need it. I am a slow loser 16 lb in 22 weeks but I think that means it isn't too stressful or to preoccupying 😀 I wish you luck and determination
