Hello.. new here :-)

Hi Everyone

Im new to the forum. Im 25 and weight 17st 8lbs. I am looking to loose atleast 6 st to get me into the healthy BMI range and i'm hoping this forum will help keep me motivated :)

I know I have a long journey ahead but I have tried so many slimming clubs and fad diets and it just hasn't worked out for me. I intend to give it my all this time and to keep the weight off aswell.

Thanks x

Hi chillichal

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

There is a lot of us here on a long journey but bit by bit we are getting there and you can too.

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.



Thank you Rose

I'll have a look now
