New and trying to lose weight

Hi, my name is Robin and after gradually getting fatter I have decided to try this NHS weight loss thing. I struggle with my digestion after having my gallbladder removed in my early 30's. I don't know what I'm supposed to eat or how it affects my weight but I know it does. I don't have a dreadful diet but it could be better, so I'm going to try my best.

  • Hi Robin,

    Welcome to the Weight Loss NhS forum. I'm rushing about at the moment, so I will just tell you about the Welcome Newbie post - as that is in the Pinned posts area and it's a good starting point for helping you find your way around the forum, and knowing what's available.

    I hope you'll join in with anything you like the look of.

    The Welcome Newbie post is in the Pinned Posts area - right-hand-side of the homepage.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Hello and welcome Pigeonwidow 😊

    Another good resource for nutritional advice is the British Heart Foundation, it suggests specific portions of each food group, 😊 I found it useful as I thought I was eating healthily (which I was), but had too larger portions! 😊

    Have a read of of the links lowcal suggested and then ask if you have any questions 😊

    Good luck

  • You may need to, but you have to WANT to. I'm about three weeks in front of you.

    Now I want to as well.

    Started the exercises on the NHS site but no jogging yet - too heavy.

    New doc says swimming and walking.

    Old doc said all my checks were fine, i'm just a fat B like him.

    I said diet, he said no. "Just remember this - no fat people walked out of Belsen !!!"

    Too many calories in, is too many calories on.

    Good luck.
