This is the start of the new me

I have tried every diet plan under the sun and some have been successful more than others. I have lost 2 stone 6lb since October 2016 but since Christmas everything has been one heck of a struggle. I lose weight one week then gain the next. I have a lot of weight still to lose. I happened upon this site so I am giving it my full attention. Here goes!

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 :)


I have recently joined myself same reasons as you pretty much. We can do it - Good luck x


Hi Hidden :) I've tried and given up many a diet in my time, even though I know they don't work, I get sucked back into the latest fad diets all the time. Today I've had enough and want to take steps to making a positive lifestyle change instead. Good luck!
