Hi everyone!

Hi everyone!

My name is Ashley and I have been on my fitness journey for almost 3 years. Ive lost 65 lbs and have managed to keep it off, but there's still work to do. I still have about 30 lbs to go and have lost motivation. Even though I haven't gained any weight back, I also haven't lost any in several months. That brings me here. I know all the plateau , change it up stuff.. it just gets hard as you all know! Excited to push it out and get to where I want to be!

  • Hello Afarmer91 and welcome to the weight loss forum. Very well done on losing 65 lbs, that's fabulous, and keeping it off which is even harder! 😊 All the advice regarding a plateau is to stick with it, double check your calorie count, and have patience!

    Here are a few suggestions for getting the best out of the forum.

    The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and 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 ☺

    Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for ☺

    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 ☺

    The forum also have group weigh-ins every day if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page ☺

    You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you may have a 'Newbie' badge. If you have any questions or would like a Newbie badge please just ask ☺

    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 ☺

    Best wishes


  • Thank you so much for the words of encouragement as well as all the tips! I look forward to this experience!

  • Your before and after pictures are fabulous! Well done!

  • Thank you so much!

  • I couldn't possibly offer advice to someone who has already lost 65lbs. You are amazing and marvellous. Your photos are so different!

    Coming on to the forum, checking out the posts and responding is what keeps me on track.

  • That's amazing advice! Thank you so much :)

  • Fantastic to have sustained that 65lb loss , and as a maintainer myself I know that staying there isn't always so easy. Now you've given your body plenty of time to adjust and settle, you can continue your journey based on your new BMR . Lots of support on here, so I hope it works for you. 😊

  • Thank you! It is quite the battle but I believe I can do it!
