Start of a new me ( hopefully)


Hoping this will work Usually start off well when losing weight but always seem to lose motivation. Not easy when you have a partner who can eat anything and not put on weight.

Hi SandyH77 and welcome :)

You have made the first step by joining this forum, so well done! :)

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

Why not have a word with your partner and get him to eat healthy aswell, so you can have support from him at the same time and then it won't be so difficult for you either?

Wishing you well with your weight loss journey, have a good week :)


Thank you . He does try to be supportive but my lack of will power does not help

Hi and welcome, Sandy :)

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 :)
