Hello and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum 😊 Well done on losing so much weight and only real-gaining some of it, that must be difficult 😕

Here are a few suggestions on how to get the most out of the forum. Please note if you are using the new HU App many of these features are not available so I suggest you use the full website version.

The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and 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 ☺

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for ☺

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 ☺

The forum also have group weigh-ins every day, as well as a new Daily Diary, if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page ☺

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you have a 'Newbie' badge. 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. If you have any questions please just ask ☺

Best wishes

Sorry to hear about your uncle x


I hope so Cat33 it certainly needs to get a bit smaller as not very much room in my wheelchair and would like a new one as it is now 17 years old and a bit tatty lol but want to lose a bit first.


You sound a lovely happy positive person and I just know you will do it Do you mind me asking why you are in a wheelchair sorry if I'm being nosy I don't mean to pry just genuinely interested I love to hear people's stories

I use a wheelchair as I have arthritis and I hated to see a reflection of me sitting in it but now I've lost a bit I don't mind so much I did it without any exercise at all so I was very proud of myself

Your user name really made me laugh out loud this morning it's great but like I say you will be changing it soon ☺️ xx


You sound pretty much like you know what you're doing. You fell off the wagon just like most of us but have 'rebooted'.

Good for you and good luck on your continuing journey.
