Hi Bay1iegh

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.



There are many different things you can eat anyway so don't worry about this. Although they give you advice about having certain types of foods, you do not have to have these. The main thing for you to do is to look mainly at the amount of calories you eat in a day. It means that you can pretty much eat anything you want which is what is great. This is the main thing that counts. I don't even class this as a diet. For me this is a lifestyle change. I never even used to eat enough calories before and was always putting on weight. My body always thought I was starving it and I was always putting on or maintaining my weight but never lost any. Now I eat enough calories as stated between the amounts in the bmi calculator and finally I am losing weight. I have lost almost 2st. Do make sure you keep track of your calories that you should eat and do what has already been stated by YellowRose55. Good luck with your journey.
