A good day

Hi I'm Denise. I'm really trying to keep myself accountable & a daily diary entry seems a good way of doing this. I've lost & gained 3-4 stones several times over the last 20 years & this time I'm determined to lose the weight & keep it off. I restarted on Monday 15 May at 14.7 & lost 5.8 lb on week one. This week I've challenged myself to lose 4.2 lbs. Because week 2 is generally rubbish for me as regards weight loss I'm doing hflc instead of calorie counting to give my body a bit of a shock. Today I weigh 13.13 - lost 2.2 so far this week & 8 lb total. Today I ate: breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled. Lunch: chicken leg. Dinner: belly pork & homemade coleslaw. 3 tea & 4 coffee & 5 pints of water. Will report again tomorrow - good or bad. Denise

Not this week. I'm following a high fat low carb approach. Today's carbs were 19.6g mainly from milk in my tea & coffee & some from the coleslaw. D

Hi and welcome, Denisem :)

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 :)
