Hi M1ami

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

For ideas of meals plans take a look at the Daily Diary.

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.

Hi and welcome to forums, congratulations on your engagement.

As a fellow asthmatic just wanted to say please make sure you look after yourself and try not to push yourself beyond what you are capable of each day with exercise (well what exercise you can do given your injury). You have a lot of time to lose the weight so take it slow and steady.

Daily dairies are great and its nice to be able to pick up ideas from other. Joining one of the weigh in days as well is motivational and you are sharing the experience with lots of different people.


welcome to the forum. You are now amidst a whole bunch of buddies. I started at the end of October and since then my asthma got under control as I started eating more healthy. I don't know how it is related but it worked. I also have a injury that worsened with my added weight. After loosing 15kg I can feel there is something wrong but all the pain is gone. All I actually want to say is be active on the forum and try everything that nhs has on offer. It worked for me. You are going to be a beautiful bride.

i love that you have given yourself a good amount of time because it is a journey rather than a quick sprint. my weight was going up and i have lost a stone and now in healthy weight range, but i can tell you even that small amount ,compared to others, has had a great benefit to my health. i used to have heartburn, achy feet and pain in my hip. i do pilates every week and walk loads. I can almost guarantee that you will feel tonnes better after starting to lose and eating healthy. The first 2 weeks are the worst, then you seem to settle into it and enjoy the good feeling!
