long diet has become a habit

I have taken 18 months to reduce my weight from 72kg to 60kg, including several lapses, but I have now reached a fairly steady average weekly loss of 0.3kg and am continuing.

All i did was designed a main meal rota or red meat, fish, white meat and vegetarian, based on a pool of about 60 recipes. Porridge made with water for breakfast, a sandwich sometimes at midday and an evening dessert of low fat yogurt and fruit.

Hi rtingle

Welcome to the weight loss forum. Well done with losing 12kgs in the last 18 months.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section on the right hand side or at the bottom if your on a mobile. Have a look at the nhs 12 week plan, many members here have had success following this plan. Use the BMI checker to work out your daily calorie allowance.

Below the Pinned posts are the Topics where members share a range of weight related subjects.

Take your measurements at the start along with a photo so you can see the changes on the days when the scales don't move.

We have weigh-ins everyday, Wednesday are full at the moment, but feel free to join us on any other day. You can find the Weigh-ins posted on the Home page in the Events section. Just click on the post in Events and state your starting weight, what you would like to lose and any loss/gain or maintain you have had over the week.

To get the best from the forum be active. Share experiences, ideas and tips. Read through some of the posts in the Topic section they are good for motivation and very inspiring.

Have a good first week.
