  • Hi and welcome, Trish, :)

    I'm nowhere near Southport, but happy to be an online friend, as will everyone else in the community. :)

    I'm very pleased to hear that you're now in a safe place and we'll do all we can to help you get to a weight that you'll be happy with.

    Take a look at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), or in the drop down on the 'Posts' page (it says 'arrange by'). 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 :)

  • Many thanks for ur reply I will definitely take a look xx

  • Congratulations on your engagement and fresh start 😊

    You can search the forum for "people near me" if that any use? Unfortunately many members are not regular forum users. Click on the icon next to your user name right at the top of the screen and a drop down list appears, it's in there with messages, profile, newsfeed etc. 😊

    Another way to meet people is to volunteer for things, school groups/PTA/Scouts and Guides . . . I made lots of good friends when we re-located when my three were little

  • Aw thank u Anna will try that. With being new to this I'm trying find my way round ha xx

  • I live in Ormskirk, which is a few miles down the road, but I'm afraid I will be moving to Brighton in the summer! We spend a fair bit of time in Southport as my five year old likes to hunt Pokemon in his spare time...

  • Only just seen this so sorry! Aw u will be moving quite a distance won't u :(

  • Yes - I'm definitely not looking forward to the move! Have you tried the outdoor gym equipment on the beach front? My 5 year old loves them!

  • Ye kids like playing in those :)
