Hi I'm 47 and have got myself into a rut. I suffered from a hip problem / pain and stopped exercising - but I did continue to eat the same foods and pile on the pounds!!. My hip is now mended (since a long time) but I've become lazy and need a push to start exercising and eating more healthily, nor do I want to buy any more clothes another size bigger 😱

After reading the other posts, it was really encouraging to read the nice, helpful, positive replies from the other members and I now really feel positive that I can do this. Thank you

Hi and welcome, Walkmore :)

Take a look at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), or in the drop down on the 'Posts' page (it says 'arrange by'). Read the Welcome Newbie thread, then 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.

Take a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as a lot of people have been successful with it, making sure to enter your details into the NHS BMI calculator, to get a calorie allowance tailored to your personal requirements. 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.

To the right of the HOME page (bottom on a mobile), you'll find Events. In there, you'll find links to our daily Weigh-in's (you will choose just one day per week), our Daily Diary, where we post our menu and exercise plans, for accountability, advice and support and our “What's happening today” thread, where we pop in for a chat.

Be aware, that the HU app doesn't give you access to all of our important features, so we advise that you use the full website page.

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.

It's only left for me to wish you well on your journey :)


Welcome and enjoy the forum Walkmore - the more you join in the more you will get out of it and make yourself known.

Cheering you on and wishing you success on towards your goals 🎉🎉🎉

Good luck. Good time of year for getting out as much as possible and lots of nice fruit around. So glad your hip is now mended.
