Hi Guys, i am Rimm. In the last 2 years my weight and body shape has dramatically changed. Throughout high school and uni I was always 65 Kg. I am 5ft 5" and now I weigh 73 Kg. This has left me depressed as I cannot wear many of my size 12 tops and jeans anymore. It is breaking my heart, i joined the gym as well 4 months ago but I just feel so intemedated and insecure in gym, i dont have anybody who could be my gym buddy. I really want to loose 20 kg to be 55Kg no matter how long it takes but i dont know where to begin. How do i motivate myself to eat green when you live with people who eat super unhealthy food 99% of times. Please help, any tips tricks that can motivate me with be very helpful!

Have you tried counting carbs for each meal? This helps with the weight loss and blood sugar control.


Hello Rimxx and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum 😊

I'm sorry you are feeling so unhappy with yourself but I'm afraid there isn't any magic tricks to good health and nutrition. 😕

You can still eat all your favourite foods but eating a good balance of nutrients is vital. 😊

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
