Need a change

I'm a 47 year old woman who has always struggled with my weight, I'm 5ft and weigh 13st having lost a stone in the few months.

Just over a year ago my dad passed away suddenly and for the 1st ever I started to suffer with depression.

Fast forward to now , I've been on anti depressants since October , had grief counselling and started to go to the gym so I'm feeling so much better and am hoping to come of the tablets very soon however now I need continue with my weight loss journey as I feel it's all part of feeling better in general and staying healthy.

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Sorry to hear you lost your Dad and I'm glad to hear that the grief counselling helped you.

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.



Thank you , feeling positive
