Newbie - Fat forty something to 'Fit Fifty' plan

Helloooo, I'm new and have started my get healthy plan today. I want to change from Fat forty something to Fit Fifty (I've got 3 years to go but better to start now me thinks!)

So, according to the NHS website, I need to lose 2 stone. I'm 5 foot 4 and 11st 2lb. I'm pretty sure most of my friends will say I don't look fat but I think I just hide it well and it's all around my tummy.

I'm quite fit, walk everywhere, do pilates and I've ordered a cross trainer. I don't snack and eat healthy homecooked food but I drink too much wine and my food portions are too big. Any advice re wine cravings gratefully recieved

Hi and welcome, Ali :)

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, then 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 :)

Take a look at the 12 week plan, as a lot of people have been successful with it, making sure to enter your details into the BMI calculator, to get a calorie allowance tailored to your personal requirements. 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'd be very welcome to join us. 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 :)
