Start of new life chapter

Hello, everyone.

Have loads of will finally to get rid of excess weight got during pregnancy, hope to keep up my motivation not to put more weight on and loosing few stones. Unfortunately past years have been with loads of stress overeating as my little girl has complex special needs. Haven't had time to myself and if l have rather l eat something and catch up on any sleep.

My aim would be to do at least three proper trainings a week and cut of sweets and change rather snacking to normal meals troughout the day. Looking for some tips how to start it all... Hope you guys in this groups can keep up the spirit and we flow to the summer with extra confidence and new life chapter. Xx

Hi Zanely

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

There are plenty of friendly members here to keep up your spirits over the coming months towards your new life chapter.

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.



Hi Zanely!

WELL DONE YOU! This (ie today and not putting it off) is the absolute best time to start making those changes! It sounds like you have been doing a great job at looking after your little girl but dont forget to look after you too! To keep up that great motivation that you have got - try make the whole process fun, pleasurable and rewarding - otherwise the danger is that we tend to get overwhelmed and give up or beat ourselves up.

Remember that you are doing an amazing thing that will benefit not just yourself but your little girl too (a happier, more energetic mum)!

I'm sure you know already but for what it's worth I would recommend that you plan and prepare your meals, stick to whole foods/real food (avoid 'diet' foods), make sure you plan in lots of non food treats and relaxation for yourself, sleep(!) and move (exercise) in the way you find most fun.

Sending you loads of positive vibes!
