Hi im fitzy

Hello there everyone, i am looking to make a big change in my lifestyle. I am really fed up lugging around another flipping person made out of flab. I need people to help me through this. The most important thing is to lower my blood pressure, my eye test showed me that my veins in my eyes were wavy instead of straight. I need to loose about 5 stone. Anyone else in this horrible space. Lets chat and support each other through this.

Hi and welcome, fitzy :)

The beauty of this community, is that we're all in the same boat and all willing to support you :)

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 a weigh-in every day of the week and you'd be very welcome to join one of them. 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 :)


Hi dreadyfitzy and welcome to this brilliant forum.

You will get all the help and support you need on here. Read as many posts as possible as I found out so much information that way.

Good luck with your weight loss journey



Welcome to the forum. I am losing weight for my wedding despite the fact that my fiancé and I haven't set a date yet. I am following Slimming World but weighing in at my mum's instead of going to meetings because I am saving for my wedding and I am in the process of moving. I have lost 5 1/2 lbs in 4 weeks. I really like this forum and appreciate the support I get from other members as well as friends and family.
