Well done!

A big well done to all the weight droppers I've seen on here today. I've just begun another go at shifting weight. However, this time I'm not trying so I can just lose weight. I'm trying to change my lifestyle so I can keep working, keep my home clean and tidy and myself too, without fussing, grunting and pain. I weighed in last weekend and scared myself half to death at 137 kilos. Today I was 136.4 so that's just over a pound off😆

Congrats on the loss Meg, you sound really upbeat. Hang on to that.

Have you set yourself an achievable mini goal? Everyone says it helps, to break the whole process up into mini journeys and that's certainly helped me.

I like that you've called it a lifestyle change. All power to you.

Hello Meg41 and welcome to the weight loss forum ☺ Very well done on your first week and successful loss ☺

Have a good look around the forum. The first place to look is 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. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for ☺

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 forum also have group weigh-ins every day if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page. The support at these is excellent ☺

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you may have a 'Newbie' badge. If you have any questions or would like a Newbie badge please just ask ☺

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
