Fed up with being fat :(

Hiya everyone I'm 5 foot 7 and I weigh 12 stone 5 pounds. I've lost 8 pounds so far but I'm really struggling with losing weight. Ideally I'd like to be nine to nine and a half stone. It's making me really depressed and I know I'd be happier slimmer. I don't go our with my friends anymore because they are things and I don't want to be seen as the fat girl. Any weight loss tips would be appreciated :) I just need some motivation lol thanks for reading xx

Hello Cat230 and welcome to the weight loss forum ☺ well done on losing 8 lbs, that is a lot of weight so you should feel proud ☺

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. It's also useful to check your bmi and target calories. It's important to eat enough calories or you can hinder weight loss. 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 spaces in Thursday and Saturday, which you'd be very welcome to join. 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 ☺

Best wishes
