Hi Lea_84

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.

Rose

I am trying this after failing to keep weight off with slimming world too. This is my first week so I will see what happens. There are loads of family recipes on the meal mixer app. I am really enjoying the food (even though I am missing the biscuits) good luck with your weight loss

There is sadly or luckily depending on how you view diet.....................................no going back!

Healthy habits must be kept and rough calorie goals once you hit you desired weight, maybe the idea that you relaxed , ( I don't know if you did) you could return to old ways, it's for lots a mindful constant thing, being aware of what you eat, tho it does get easier.

Get the kids into healthy foods and set a role model for them, I never remember my parents having binges, tho they liked a drink, food restrictions were never ever mentioned, tho at one point I ate too much sweet stuff! And yes I got told in my 40s by then tho.

With the help of the forum you can achieve great things and great losses, be kind to yourself and start to make great lifestyle changes now., that you can stick to !!

The fact you managed to lose weight suggests it's a problem that can be overcome.

We have to allow our bodies to adjust to a new 'set point' before we can continue to lose weight. If we continue on a low intake for too long our bodies react to perceived starvation, weight-loss stalls, and we reach a plateau.

Before this happens, increase your intake of natural fat for a couple of weeks each month; enough to maintain at your new weight, but not enough to regain. You can recalculate your new weight-loss plan and resume weight-loss again in between these maintenance breaks.
