Hi. I am new to this site - I need to lose a lot of weight as I'm 219 pounds and 5ft 5ins. I plan to start eating healthily and following a plan as soon as I come home from hospital on the 16th Jan. I will need to be exercising my new knee so the timing will be good I think.

I think I'll be encouraged by all of your posts and feeling part of a similar minded group.

  • Hi and welcome sozzle :)

    Go to the Pinned Posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile) and take a look at the Welcome Newbie thread. If you have any questions, look at the Topics below, to see if they'll help you out, or ask on the forum :)

    We are currently revamping our weigh-in's, so lookout for an update on that, or join in with the discussions on how best to move forward. It's always a good idea to be active on the forum, as that's where we glean our information, inspiration and motivation.

    Download the 12 week plan, if that's something that appeals to you and don't forget to take initial measurements and photos, as it's a great way of seeing just how far you've come, especially when the scales aren't co-operating fully :)

    Wishing you all the very best with your knee surgery and forthcoming weight loss journey :)

  • You will feel so good about that new knee there will be no stopping you so good luck.

    P.S you look lovely and you look fun so I am sure you can do it!
