Hi just started the NHS 12 week plan. A friend recommended it who has lost a good amount of weight in five weeks and said she's still smiling and not hungry! I need to lose two stone which I gained in one year. My incentive is a wedding in August with lots of old school friends I haven't seen in years! Plus I want to wear shorts but feel too fat! So always in jeans and am always too hot! Hopefully not this Summer! I've done a good shop- found jelly pots for 10cals for any weak moments! Good to be part of this community 😊

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Come and join in with today's weigh in to record your starting weight, you can find it on the Home page on the right hand side or at the bottom if your on a mobile.

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.



Welcome Traceymarie.

The wedding is a great incentive to help you along the way.

Don't be worried about throwing those shorts on. Try and feel good about the actual real person you are and do what makes you feel good (don't suffer being hot for other people's sake).

Well done as well for getting in those little snacks. There may be other things as well when you give it some more thought... fruit is my main go to.

Good luck!
