Hello, after many tries here I am, I hope to be able to lose weight, my youngest is 5 year old now and I still cant lose these 2 stones! The problem is that I when I am bored, I eat, when I am stressed, I eat, when I feel lonely, or down, I eat, you see where I am going?

can someone relate? I have decided , that tomorrow is the first day , I am turning a leaf, so I hope to get the strength ! We 'll see!

  • Hi nanouche95

    Welcome to the weight loss froum.

    We can all relate to comfort eating and I think most of us have done it at one time or another.

    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.


  • I am in exactly the same boat, I'm n emotional eater wether it be boredom, loneliness or even happy.

    I'm aiming to lose 4 stone but would be happy to lose 3 stone!

    I'm starting 2moz as today didn't go well atall.

    I'm planning on eating cereal if I ever have a chocolate craving (my downfall) and eating alot of protein and veg.

  • Good luck ! It helps to know you are not alone !

  • yes there will be a good few relate to that, me included! You've taken the right approach. Keep turning those pages til.youve finished the book and your two stone is gone! Are you on the NHS 12wk plan? Be sure to check your BMI and calorie recommendations. Plan ahead as much as is possible, reduces chance of nibbling and mindless eating of which i am a nightmare. Well maybe not just so bad now as when i started out. Have faith in yourself. Enjoy it, try new foods, and drink lots of water too, that definitely helps me. 💪💪

  • Thank you for your nice words and support! I feel motivated now!!

  • Hi nanouche95 and welcome :)

    Yes i can definitely relate to this, as i have done it.

    You will find lots of suport and friendly advice here and are never on your own, as we are all going through the same.

    Good luck with your weight loss journey and have a good week :)

  • Thank you

  • Hi and welcome and wishing you all the best on your weight loss journey :)

    Remember to take your measurements as well as your starting weight :) as it really helps to motivate you seeing the inches go down when the scales don't :) I try and measure just once a month (sometimes go longer than that if the scales have been nice ;) ) and weigh in once a week :)

  • Thank you

  • I find having fruit in the house helps the stress eating. Good luck.

  • Good idea , I wont go for the kids biscuits!
