New to Weight Loss NHS: Introduction

Hello, I am Joseph. I live in Port Harcourt Nigeria and work in the office were I do sedentary work most of the time. Occasionally I get involved in jogging and other floor exercises but because I am irregular at it not much results have been noticed in my efforts to drop the pounds. By my BMI of 29, I am overweight, although I am about 6ft 1inch tall. My goal is to lose at least 15kg so I can get to at least 91kg. I appreciate what you fellow forum members have posted on the forum, showing your struggles and successes, and I wish in the months ahead, the posts that I shall share would be helpful and beneficial to you all.

Hi Joseph,

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your weight loss, health and fitness goals. :)



Weight loss is more about what you eat than how much you move about. Of course exercise is helping, but it won't do the trick alone. Why not have a look at the NHS 12 week plan?
