Hi George and welcome. As you can see from the badge, I'm new here also. As the others have said, this website is full of very friendly and helpful people.

Quite a few people here, including myself, are following the NHS 12 week plan. If you haven't looked at it, you may want to give it a once over and see what you think.

Anyway, an administrator will probably feed you more info about the site etc..., shortly.

Good luck and just shout out whenever you have any thoughts, questions, concerns, revelations.....

Welcome! I was 23 stone a while ago. What is working for me is setting mini goals one stone apart. I don't think about end goal, I just reward myself with a present every stone. You will see a difference in your health and pain after the first couple of weeks. Good luck and keep posting!

Hi and welcome, George :)

Take a look at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you :)

Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news :)

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate :)

We run daily weigh-in's and you would be very welcome to join any, bar Monday and Tuesday, which are unfortunately full. The threads can always be found in the Events section, to the right of the home page, bottom on a mobile.

We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too :)

It's only left for me to wish you well on your journey :)

Hi George, this really is an excellent forum. I joined a couple of months ago and find it truly inspiring. We are all in the same boat. I'm also under a community dietician but I get more useful information and tips by logging on here. Good luck with your weight loss journey :)

Good morning George56

Well done on taking the first most important step ☺ I hope you have had time to look around the forum, read the Newbies post and become acquainted with a few people ☺

I have successfully lost almost 3 stone on a dietician led scheme run by Grampian Health called "Healthy Helpings" so ask about it when you go to Foresterhill on tomorrow. ☺

If you have any questions or would like a Newbie badge please just ask ☺

Best wishes

Anna

Hi Anna I was on the healthy options to I lost weight doing the short walks & enjoyed the cooking class. I think they still meet up on a Monday. I have real problems with my leg injury and mobility and good at hiding how I feel. The nurses are the best. The Aberdeen Health Village & Forresterhill Hospital as well. Kind regards George.
