Hi Kiciek

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.

It sounds like you are pretty similar to the problems I had when I first joined. I found out on here that because I used to only eat around 1000 calories a day because I was always desperate to lose weight this was why I was never losing weight. I was informed that I needed to check out my calorie intake through the NHS bmi calculator as this gives you amounts you should eat between to be able to lose weight. You shouldn't eat below this amount as your body thinks you are starving it and turns what you do eat into body fat and this weighs more than eating the extra calories does so means you do end up staying the same or putting weight on. I have now upped my calories to the amounts advised and lost 2st. Please don't also make this mistake. Good luck with your journey.
