Some good news !!!!

Hi All, Hope your weekend was as good as mine, just showing off a BIG weight this loss this morning 6lb so since starting counting calories 1500 per day, sometimes less since Feb I have achieved 1 stone loss still have 6st to lose, but hey I'm on my way and in a very up mood today, I haven't really deprived myself anything but with IBS have to be very careful what I do eat and starting this healthy way of eating has all but cured that. So onwards and upwards all you lovely people. Have a great day x

Hello gaynora and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum

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

Anna

Hi Anna, Thanks for your comments, how do I become a full member please, I go to the right of my screen on my lap top but cannot find topics to go into it. I think it is a great site and the help and information and encouragement just wonderful, yet I don't have to embarrass myself in class with my size and weight like I did at SW & WW I just hated that, so find this great. x

It sure works for me hence my first 1 st weight loss just sticking to all the tips and advice and for me staying under 1500 cals a day.

I'm so sorry, lathe, I'm afraid we have a site glitch and I'm unable to change your badge either! I've reported it and hope that it will be sorted out soon.
