Weight Loss NHS

New Start 17

Hi, I am new to this, just started today, I like the idea of having the food I want but staying within calories for the day. I have tried everything and when i'm told I can't have something that's it!! :) 12 weeks x 2 pound a week = healthy lifestyle and a very happy me..and lower blood pressure, which is the main reason for me starting this new lifestyle change.

Hi ChangeMe

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side or at the bottom if your 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 together with a photo so you can see the changes on the days the scales don't move.

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

To get the most of the forum be active, share tips, recipes and experiences. Read some of the posts they are very motivating.

Have a good first week.



Welcome to this forum ChangeMe hope you enjoy yourself while with us. This site is amazing. For me it is the first weightloss that I have felt comfortable with, never thought of leaving and stuck with for more than three months. Please don't be afraid to ask anything as there will always be someone else that will be likely to have an answer for you. Good luck with your weightloss, you can do this. 🎉👏🌹

Welcome ChangeMe.

Like you I started because it was all about portion control and not removing foods that you like.

One tip... its great to have a final goal but try giving yourself a mini goal (e.g. 7lbs for a badge... just something that makes sense to you). It can help make the journey less daunting and provides a great sense of achievement when you reach it.

Good luck.

The most successful dieters (hate that word!) plan each day and preferably each week as far as food goes.

Once you know exactly what your good plan is for the day you can juggle your calories to fit in foods you want.
