Help please!

Hi, I currently weigh 13st 12. My heaviest ever!

I really want to trim up for a family wedding in 11 weeks.

I belong to a gym and use it about three times a week and also swim.

My problem is my food. I am an emotional eater and will always eat over my allowance when stressed at work.

I also struggle to eat three meals a day.

I have an underactive thyroid ( now on 75g medication).

Does anyone with the same condition struggle to lose weight?

I do now own a Fitbit charge 2 and would appreciate any advice on how useful these are?

Any advice on the above would be appreciated.

Thank you

Hi dazzle

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side of the screen or if your on a mobile at the bottom. Have a look at the nhs 12 week plan, many members 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 when the scales don't move.

We have weigh-ins every day so why not come and join us. You can find the weigh-in on the Home page in the Events section on the right. Just click on the post and state your start weight and any loss/gain or maintain for the week.
