Hello and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum Kerri-06

2lbs is quite a lot of fat so well done. It's actually impossible to lose much more in a week. Rapid weight loss is not good for many reasons. Try to be patient and focus on nourishing your body.😊

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



have you calculated how many calories you should be having daily?

also, being a chef, do you eat meals or nibble throughout the day? I found when i worked in catering i used to constantly nibble without even realising it.🙈

do you eat late at night after your shifts at all?

sorry for all the questions but just trying to help pin point something that you could maybe change to help you lose.


You need to eat healthy foods that are lean- vegetables, greens, rice, beans, etc. And you need to keep exercising to stay healthy too. Mummy magic tea helps with weight loss. It has lots of benefits for health and weight loss. You should drink 2-3 cups of this tea each day to improve your health and get close to lose weight.
