Lots to lose

Hello everyone!

Completely new to everything today! Just signed up and ready to go!

I have around 5st lose to get to a healthy weight for my height as my BMI is currently 40+

Im 58 yrs old 19st and 5ft 10 and have never been able to stop eating food until I'm stuffed never know when I'm full , till its to late.

I find it really hard to control, tried all different diets and don't last long on them.

Now I have arthritis in both my knees, just had a operation on one of them which has made it even worse. Wish I could just have the fat removed and start again.

Hi and welcome, Bradsy :)

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
