Weight Loss NHS

Health and relationship

Hi, I want to lose weight for a few reasons but mainly because I have health problems and because I hate the way I look and feel. Now I know that you are thinking that hate is a strong word but I actually do hate the way I look and feel and also because my husband had a nasty stroke in October last year and I don't like having the thought that if something happened to me he'd be on his own. I don't mean that he was paralysed in any way he was very fortunate enough for that not to happen, but he's got a disability anyway and I don't plan on going anywhere yet anyway. I want to be around for him and to look and feel better about myself as well as for him for as long as possible. I hope that I can get hints and tips on how to keep the weight off and how I can get the best possible results.

Thank-you for your support, I really hope I can as I occasionally get the urge to binge on some foodstuff that won't do me any favours

Happy New Year Feeling_Totally_Fat!

Have you seen the Public Health Collaboration's guidelines? phcuk.org/booklets/ They focus on getting appetite under control by eating real food, then adjusting portion sizes to enable you to lose weight whilst enjoying what you eat. It's an ideal way of eating for anyone that accepts that processed foods such as vegetable oils, sugar, flour and additives aren't good for us.
