keep a food diary it does help or keep on track and plan ahead that its its your choice and what works for you

Food is something we all need to survive chose natural and healthy options and not so much processed its the way we deal with our relationship with it and being in the right frame of mind living for the moment staying positive and move the body and keep good friendships engage in good hobbies to distract you away from food.

we can all do this

There is a daily dairy on here and you can choose a day to weighin. Scroll down the posts and you will see both. Good luck

I am an idiot and cannot find it sorry


Hi Nayshiftin-1 have you read through the newbie section on the pinned posts? It gives great tips about how to use the site 😀 The forum is a support system its full of people just like you who want support and motivation to lose weight. The admins on the site are also the same as us,but on a voluntary basis, have taken on more responsibility to ensure no one gets left out - our heros 😇. People here often do use a supplementary weight loss group such us weight watchers or slimming world and then come on here to share their achievements or woes! There is no programme to follow but lots of us downloaded the NHS 12 week plan and followed that. I actually did it twice! I think a diary is a great idea and again the 12 week plan has one of those. Hope that is a helpful summary of how the forum works 😀 I wish you luck and determination

Hello Nayshiftin-1 and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum 😊

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
