Keeping going

Hi I've just joined because I am trying to get back to a healthy weight and have lost 13lb so far and am on the cusp from moving to obese to overweight. But looking at the 2 1/2 stone I've still got to lose to get into a healthy weight range is a little daunting. Any support or suggestions to help me stick with my weigh loss plan would be greatly appreciated. It just seems such a lot.

Hi Rusty57

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Looking at the whole 2 and half stone can be daunting as you say, so why not break it into manageable 7lb targets and it will seem more achievable.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side or at the bottom if your on a mobile. Have a look at the nhs 12 week plan, many members have had success following this plan. Use the BMI checker to work out your daily calorie allowance.

Have a look at the Daily Diary which you can find on the Home page in Events. It is where all the members are sharing their daily plans on what they are eating and any exercise they are doing. This thread will give you some ideas on how to start.

Below the Pinned posts are the Topics where members share a range of weight related subjects.

Take your measurements at the start together with a photo so you can see the changes on the days the scales don't move.

We have daily weigh ins so why not come along and join us today. You can find the weigh ins on the Home page in the Events section on the right. Just click on the post in Events and record your start weight and any loss/gain or maintain for the week.

To get the most of the forum be active, share tips, recipes and experiences. Read some of the posts they are very motivating.

Have a good first week.
