Hello everyone πŸ‘‹

Hi there , I'm a mum of 4 . They are all my world and they keep me on my toes. My weight gain started after I had my daughter in 2010, my baby 2 weeks old. I went for my check up with the doctor and he said you need to lose weight you weren't this weight(9stone7) back in 2008! So I went on a mad mission to keep eating I thought cheeky sod ! 2 years ago I became agoraphobic and because of this and my bad diet I've gained 2 stone. I need to lose it . I'm having issues with my eye I can't see a doctor n I'm convinced it's something worse due to my weight and poor weight..... good luck to you all on your journey xxx

  • Hi Kimpossible (loving the πŸ‘‹)

    Nice to meet you!

    This is a great forum, with lots of advice and encouragement to help you with your weight loss. 😊

    I hope you don't mind me saying, but I think you should consider going back to the Dr about your eye problem. It may be completely unrelated to your weight, and even if it is, it could require medical attention.

    I wish you all the best with your weight loss. 😊

  • Hi Kimpossible and welcome

    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 β€œWhat'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 πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

  • Hi and welcome

    Please try and go back to your Dr re your eye, last thing you want is for it to get worse

    Hope you have a good read of the Newbie post etc as Minnewinnie has said :)

    Wishing you all the best on your weight loss journey - you need to do this for you :) We are here to support you but only you can make this work :)

  • Welcome, this is a great place to come for support.

    But like everyone else I think it is essential that you see a Doctor, or an optician about your eye. You need your sight to see your beautiful children.

    Take care
