Hey I'm new here!!


My name is Laila, I'm 24 and have been struggling to lose weight for a long time. I started putting on weight since I was 10 and its just increased since there.

Yesterday I went for some treatment called cupping and the lady doing it said I was very obese and needed to lose weight asap for the treatment to even work.

I felt ashamed and made a resolve to start losing the weight, bought some sugar-free food yesterday but didn't feel like very ready or strong enough to commit.

Then I saw this website!! Its really good and I will be following the 12 week plan hopefully.

I just would like to connect with people in this situation and hopefully we can support each other :)

Also can anyone help me find the exercise page?

Thanks lots of love xxx

Hi Laila,

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

It's great that you already want to start on the 12 Week Plan - I wish you luck with that! Well Done you, too for buying some sugar free food. :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 the 'Welcome Newbie' post, 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 :)

We also run a badges system on the forum, you can start with the ‘Newbie’ badge and then work you way up to 7lbs and then in 1 stone increments, they are also avaliable in Kgs too. If you would like a badge, just let Lowcal or moreless know :)

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 :P

Rob :)
