Morning Meliejayne69

Welcome to the weight loss forum. Please take a look at the "Welcome Newbies" post in the Pinned post section on the right hand side, at the bottom if on a mobile. In the post there are links to the nhs 12 week plan and the BMI checker so you can work out your daily calorie allowance.

Feel free to join in with any of the challenges also in the Pinned post section. They are good for keeping us all motivated and moving.

Join in with on of our weigh-ins which are run from Monday to Saturday. You can chose a day that suits you best.

Enjoy your first week.

Welcome to this very friendly forum, Mel. You have come to the right place for support. I joined in June and reached my goal weight in December - but I am still hanging around here sometimes because I am determined to maintain my weigh and not put it right back on. I am also a part of the Couch to 5K forum for new runners. Also a fabulous place if you want to learn how to run.

Hi IbenCopenhagen

Thank you for your welcome, well done on reaching your goal weight. Any tips will be greatly appreciated along the way. I would love to be able to go for a run every morning but unfortunately due to mobility problems I am unable but trying to motivate myself with the treadmill exercise bike and cross trainer as much as I can now.
