Nearly There

I'm new here "hello everyone"

I started my weight loss journey back in May 2017. I weighed 72.3 kg bmi of 30.1, and at only 5ft1inch I felt massive. I also have 3 children which also has taken a toll on my body but it came to a stage where I couldn't keep up with them. That's the main reason for me really my children to see a healthy active mum and it should set the right mindset for there future. My weight loss goal is 51.4kg and to date I've lost 11.7kg taking me to 60.6kg bmi 25.2, this is such a massive achievement for me I have another 9.2kg to loss yet but just goes to show a big change in my diet and now I self discipline so I have no junk food at all six days a week but I do allow myself one naughty day, I also have reduced my portion size that I eat. I also did cardio to start with every day just 12 minutes (but 12 minutes seemed like hours, sweat 💦 would be dripping from me like a tap) I gradually increased my workouts and now I do 2 sets morning & evening of 14 minute workouts 5 times a week and also jog 2/3km twice a week.

I'm starting to feel so much lighter and healthier now and getting to love my body again it's been such hard work but my life is about challenging yourself working hard and living happy.

Thanks for reading my progress so far, I look forward to reading yours 😊

Hi 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 “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 😊

Wishing you all the best on your weight loss journey :)
