Exercise is the key

Hi, I am Lou. Lost 3 stones with ww and regained 2. Tried slimming world, but too many carbs. I have decided to eat healthier, reduce alcohol and join the gym. I have to say that I haven't felt so good in years. Steady weight loss and toning up those wobbly bits. Doing couch to 5k. Have multiple sclerosis so taking it one day at a time. Any encouragement or advice very welcome!

Hi and welcome, Lou :)

It sounds as if you've realised that dieting doesn't achieve long-term results and that a healthy lifestyle is the way forward, well done you! :)

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 :)
