Oh hell!

Hi All what can I say? We are all in the same boat so to speak, all hoping for a miracle cure, some more desperate than others. But at the end of the day it boils down to what we put into that larger hole in our face! So due to massive health issues that hole in my face needs to check in with the noodles at the top before shutting that hole which I may have just filled. All workman welcome to give up an idea or two which works without mentioning the D*** word, which makes my hole in the face run in panic to fill up with anything, I might try to tell that hole that the piece of chocolate that I am holding is either a very hot chilly pepper or olives, the first would keep me up all the night with my best friend Mr Gaviscon as well as the omeprizole the second for me is YUK along with anchovies! Wish me luck and I will let you know if that idea works.

Hi LinniH and welcome
 to the forum

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.

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI (can be found in the pinned Newbie post) to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted 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 😊

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 - which is great to get ideas of what other people are eating and I have to confess to nicking some of their menu's :) 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 😊

Cheering you to success to reach your goals 🎉🎉🎉

LinniH fill up with healthy, satiating and nourishing foods at all mealtimes to start with, and it will reduce cravings for the sweet nothings we do comfort ourselves with. Then get to know your daily calorie needs and work with it. All the best!

Thank you will try that

Love your upbeat attitude - just what I needed this morning when the scales have mysteriously gone wrong again (at least, that is my excuse today).

I try and tell myself that lump of chocolate is just a piece of solid, brown, FAT!!! (It sometimes works....)

Thanks but I found if you have a really good chocolate a piece just takes the edge off. Glad you enjoyed it. I will now go on a mission to try and get at least 2lb a week, I am in a race so I have to be good.
