My first post!

Hi I'm Rebecca and around 2 years ago I decided I wanted to lose weight after sitting at just over 15 stone. My lifestyle changed completely as I moved overseas and I joined the gym and loved it. I would meal prep and had so much will power to keep going. when I returned back to the Uk a few months ago I was 11.7 stone so I had lost 3 and a half stone and felt amazing. Since then however I have slowly gained a stone even after still going to the gym a lot I found I was eating bad food more often so I am now on a mission to get back down to 11.7 stone and then finish it off with an extra half a stone so I finish at 11 stone!

Hi Rebeccah1 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‰
