Today is the Day

Hi all just decided I need help. First stage to reducing weight. I am 17st 3 and 5'10 and at 54 now regarded as obese and at risk. Decided I have to do something rather then sit there thinking I can control it I will stop eating. Well nothing changes and if anything now much heavier. In fact the heaviest I have ever been. So here goes week 1 starts tomorrow.

Hi nigelgol

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

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 and well done for the first step. It's my first day too, so here's to both of us reaching a healthy weight. I already feel a bit better after so many positive and friendly responses, I am sure that you will feel equally as supported. If I can be of any help or support, I will. Take care
