Help needed

I have been trying really hard to get into the 12 week plan and I love the guidelines, they are just so simple but it seems my family is hitting one sick wave after the other and I just don't find the strength and focus I'd need to really stick with it.. so I am extremely frustrated by now and angry at myself and was wondering if anyone had some advice on how to not fall off the wagon ever so often. Any ideas on how to get the hang of it?

Don't despair. You can start by changing only one thing. Maybe it is cutting sugar, or drinking 6-8 glasses water, or be active, or eat breakfast. I really should have started like this. Along the way I also do this when I loose my focus. Good luck. I hope the whole family will be 100% very soon.

Hi and welcome Frofphee :)

I'm so sorry to hear that you've been having a rough trot recently and I think Ribaka's advice is very sound, don't try to do too much in one go. I also think it's a lot easier to do with support, which is where this community comes into its own! Support is what we do best! :)

Take a look at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread, then 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.

Take a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as a lot of people have been successful with it, making sure to enter your details into the BMI calculator, to get a calorie allowance tailored to your personal requirements. 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.

We run daily weigh-in's and you'd be very welcome to join us. The threads can always be found in the Events section, to the right of the HOME page, bottom on a mobile.

We also run a Daily Diary, where we share our meal and exercise plans for the day. It's a great place to get ideas and to keep us focused. The link can also be found in Events.

Be aware, that the HU app doesn't give you access to all of our important features, so we advise that you use the full website page.

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.

It's only left for me to wish you well on your journey :)

the best thing about the 12 week plan frophee is the weekly form! and daily calorie count and excercise count, when you get into it you will see how encouraging the guidlines are about meal times etc. have you done your BMI/guidance daily caloprie allowance yet? alot of calorie counting programs do it for you.
