Weight Loss NHS

over weight - not happy

Hi. I work for the nhs. Always took advantage of a slim figure in my 20s and 30s!!! Not the case inmy 40s. Over my bmi in the over weight range. Find it hard with the cold weather to diet or exercise. Maybe because I don't know what diet to stick to - low carbs or low calories. Doesn't help having a sweet tooth. Hope this forum can offer offer tips, support and advise!!

Hi and welcome, Dahegamia :)

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 :)

The majority of our daily weigh-in's are now full, but we still have a few spaces left in Thursday's and Saturday's and you'd be very welcome to join either. 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 :)

I do a mix. Low carbs high fat when I have a quite day High carbs when I run :-). Lots of grazing when I'm on nights. It's finding what works for you that's important.
