Starting again

Hi All Some may remember me I was on here a while ago but seemed to lose my way if that makes sense!! so I have re thought what I need to do and here I am back hoping I'm going to get the wonderful support I had before I have a lot to lose in fact going away from the site to sort myself out I have gained an extra stone which is not what I needed but it's there and I have to deal with it. -:) x x

  • Welcome back, Betty :)

    As it's been a while since you were last here, I'm, going to give you all the newbie info and a newbie badge, so that you can reacquaint yourself with forum life :)

    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 :)

  • Thank you so much putting me as a Newbie is just what I wanted to happen. I really need to get focused having a lot to lose is not an easy task so I will be after all the help I can get and likewise if I can help anyone else out. x x -:)

  • We're all here for each other :)

    Why not check out the Daily Diary, as there are some great ideas there? :)

  • Thank you I have had a quick look and its something I need to look at on a daily basis and I need to start finding a bit more time for me which is what everyone that knows me is saying also get myself focussed although today hasn't been too bad I will be more on it from tomorrow, I'm surprised how difficult I'm finding my way around the site it's the old saying if you don't use it you lose it lol. But thank you again x x -:)

  • Don't worry Betty, we're using more of the forum now, but you'll soon get the hang of it again :)

  • Hi Bettyboop I came back yesterday after several years away. I too put on the weight I had lost. We are both doing the right thing tho by coming back, good luck on your 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 for our wedding yet. I am currently following Slimming World but weighing in at my mum's house instead of going to the meetings. I have lost 7 1/2lbs in the last 5 weeks. I love the forum and I appreciate the support that I get from other forum members as well as family and friends.

  • Hi Sheryl Thank you for your response well done on your weight loss and congratulations on your wedding plans hope we can all help each other. x x-:)

  • Don't know if its me but I'm finding getting around the site confusing. also can I put my name down for a weigh day or do I just record it on the day somewhere I have looked at some of the items down the list on the right hand side but do find it all so confusing. sorry x x -:)
