Hi mashaket welcome. I am sure you will find this forum helpful but suspect you will need to turn your stubbornness to your advantage. No one except you can make you adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Instead of thinking you need will power, go for won't power. Be determined (stubborn if you like) that you will stop eating, or drastically reduce eating processed foods. The big issue with them is that they are full of sugar and fats that are not good you you.

Look for a blogger called Kack Munroe, she is inspirational if you are trying to cook on a budget.

If you drink alcohol you need to remember it is high in calories and has loads of sugar in it. You have to choose what you do and don't do, you also have to be honest with yourself. Walking is good exercise as and there are lots of exercise routines on YouTube so you don't need to shell out for gym membership.

Get your mindset (stubbornness) on the "can do" channel and keep joining in with conversations on the forum.

I wish you well.



I agree with Ceals . Apply your stubbornness to getting rid of the weight. Only you can do it but you can do it, if you choose to. Start today and by the summer you will feel and look better.

Hi mashaket

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbies post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side or at the bottom if on a mobile. 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 on the days when the scales don't move.

We have daily weigh ins 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 in Events and state your starting weight and any loss/gain or maintain over the week.

To get the best out of the forum be active, share experiences, tips and recipes. Read some of the posts in the Topic section, they can be motivating.

Have a good first week.
