Newbie having trouble

Hi everyone

I am new to this forum but not new to trying to loose weight. I am 57 and have been dieting nearly all my life. I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS when I was 48. Unfortunately not ver the past couple of years as the disease has progressed I have put on weight. My MS nurse said I was verging on being obese and because I am almost sedentary I should only have 1000 calories per day. I'm finding this really hard and really boring.

I need help with easy calorie counted healthy recipes.

Also I can not find the 'events' on the home page to click on for the weigh in.

Can any body be help please

Hi Lyn25

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 hand side or at the bottom if on a mobile. 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.
