Total newbie here!

Hi all!

Just joined today as I've gotten to a point where my weight has plateaued and I'm desperately trying to get under 90kg (85 if possible!) before August 10th. I started off at 112.8kg last August and I'm currently stuck at 92.8kg. I go to the gym at least 3 times a week for 30 min classes and I'm calorie counting.

Anyone have any additional ideas to help me lose those pesky 8kgs?

Hi KatyK88

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.
