Hi I'm Trudie and Im new, and have never been in a forum before. I feel this might be a way to motivate me because I don't have to see anyone and look at them when I fail again!! I feel like I could talk someone e else through a weight loss programme , and although I seem to know all the facts I just can't practice what I preach. I don't know where to start anymore?? I just feel angry with myself and sad with the weight and size I am. 😞

Morning TrudieTrotter

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.

Hi Trudy

You won't "fail again" you may have a few hiccups on your journey but keep posting and using this forum getting lots of ideas and Info and most of all brilliant support. You are on a forum where everyone has been or still is in the same boat so no one is judgemental.

Best of luck to you 🌷


Hi TrudieTrotter. Welcome, reading your post I can feel you're fed up. But look at it this way all your determination has meant you haven't given up and that is a big win. We are here to help each other regardless of where we are on our weight loss journey. I felt like you do back in Feb and like you I joined this group and I never looked back. In 14 weeks I've lost 13 lbs which is massive for me as before I never got over 7 lbs. But importantly it's changed my outlook on what I eat, how much I eat and drink, how I move and exercise and my general wellbeing. Stick with it, it will work for you.

Draw a line under what's happened before and start afresh. Set yourself a mini target and work to achieve it. We will help support you along the way.
