Hi evryone,

I am Dorina, 28. Since i was 24 my body changed. I got some kilos and often i tried to keep a diet or exercise but never succesfull. I am 167cm tall and befor 2 days i realised that my weight is 71 kg. I feel quite depressed. Since long time i dont even go on beach and wear only joggers and big size clothes. I really want to lose 15 kilos. Does someone know a way to do it ?

Hello DorinaBerlin . 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



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 because I am in the process of moving and saving for my wedding. 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 DorinaBerlin welcome to the forum. I have been trying to lose weight most of my life and never been successful until now. I had always tried to eat less and less all the time because I was never getting anywhere and thought this was my problem. I found out on here that because I wasn't eating enough was why I wasn't losing weight because your body thinks you are starving it and turns what you do eat into body fat instead and this weighs more than eating the calories does so it stops you from losing weight and puts weight on you instead. Check out on the NHS bmi calculator how many calories you should be having to lose weight and make sure you eat somewhere in between this two amounts so that you do manage to lose weight. Keep an eye on the amounts as you do lose weight as the amounts change as you do lose weight. Make sure you are not also making this mistake and good luck with your journey.
