Must do something about this!

Hi all, have recently been shocked into action by the scales. Last time I dieted was before I was pregnant with my now 7 year old son and I lost weight quite easily but really struggling this time around, not least with understanding what to eat and what to cut out. Last time it was all about low fat but now it seems like it's sugar/carbs that I need to avoid. Any advice? X

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 today. 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.



An administrator will probably have replied to you before I've finished waffling, however, I wouldn't get too concerned about what to eat, to start with. Balanced eating is a good way but just in sensible portion sizes.

Try and limit snacking and make any snacks that you do have, mostly healthy ones.

Good luck!
