Hello from the other side

Hi everyone.

Signing in from NZ on a sunny winters day (after a few rough and stormy ones).

Like so many of you I have struggled with weight and weightloss for years. After having my children, every year has seen the scales creeping higher. I am tired of having low days, breathlessness climbing stairs, wobbly bits, and the associated pains and leaks that go with being overweight. I am 5'4" and weigh 210lb(95kg). Am aiming for 165lb(75kg) then see how things go after that. I came across the nhs 12 week plan while net surfing at work and eating a chocolate bar, liked what I was reading (and eating) and thought "I can do that" (then didn't like what I was eating quite as much).

Hi kiwikyd-nz

Welcome to the weight loss froum.

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.
