Hello, I'm new!


Hi everyone. I joined earlier this week and have been meaning to introduce myself.

Three weeks ago I was given the all clear from breast cancer and have lost a bit of my confidence after losing my hair and putting on more weight over the last six months. I was overweight before my diagnosis and have over 4 stone to lose. I will be following others' posts for ideas and inspiration :)

Hi MissPenelope

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Congratulations on getting the all clear from breast cancer. You will find a lot of support here to help you along your weight loss journey.

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 and welcome - so pleased for you getting the all clear :)

Wishing you all the best on your weight loss journey :)
