Hi I am new to this, and I am a post graduate student from Kingston, I didn't realise that I had gained so much weight until I weighed and had myself checked last week, since then I'm trying really hard to get back, currently according to my BMI, I am an obese, I did join the gym, and for my first days I got so tired that I had to take a rest for 20 minutes to get up again. So I hope I get back to shape as soon and as healthy as I was .

Hi and welcome, qnaveedm :)

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 :)

Oops! I pressed the wrong button before. Sounds like you have a great determination to succeed and you'll get there. Are you pushing yourself quite hard, if it took a long time to recover?
