Hi Dougal33,

It is lovely that you've written your first post in the forum, since watching the site over the last 6 months. Welcome!!!! :-)

I would like to wish you a Very Happy Christmas, and also hope that you are successful with your goals to lose 16lb - your plan to follow the NHS 12 week plan is an excellent one - many of us have found success doing just that.

I hope you'll enjoy doing further posts, and also joining in with anything you like the look of in the forum.

Have a lovely weekend.

Lowcal :-)


Wishing you luck with your eating plan and knee op, it's always a good idea to get fit and well before surgery 😊
