Breath your calories out.

Does anyone here have their calorie deficit worked out to lose weight?

I keep a diary with an app online and am in a calorie deficit of 800 calories a day, and with walking for exercise; I am breathing more and exhaling the lost weight.

Does anyone else follow this simple science? Thanks.

Welcome davidgolf49 This is an amazing forum to be part of. Lots of people on here have different areas of concern but we are all trying to get to, or maintain, a desired weight. As you get to know us, and share experiences with us, you will find what a super supportive bunch we are and that we don't pass judgements.

Here are a few suggestions about how to get the most out of the forum. If you are using the new HU App (helpful when you are out and about), many of these features are not available so I suggest you use the full website version.

The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and 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 topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news, and you will have important news to share.

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This can be a major turning point, realising you can eat anything as long as the calories are accounted for. 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, that happens to me regularly!

The forum also has group weigh-ins every day, as well as a Daily Diary, if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page.

If you just want to chat, to say hello or share any news or struggles then look out for the What's Happening Today thread. There are many other challenges to get involved with, just choose to do what you are comfortable with

.

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you have a 'Newbie' badge. 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. If you have any questions please just ask.

The more you join in and connect with people the more you get out of the forum.

I wish you well as you get started with a new lifestyle.

What is the HU app?

It is the Health Unlocked app - i.e. this forum site.

You can download it onto your mobile phone. I find it very useful when I am not near the computer but you can't access everything. It is OK for reading posts and replying, or writing posts but can't access the pinned posts or events.

Hope that helps.
