Hi i have just joined

I have just downloaded the app and am really excited by what I have seen. Reading some of your posts has helped to inspire me with my life long struggle to lose weight. I have been calorie counting since Wednesday and so far not exceeded my daily allowance, which is incredible. My main problem is lack of will power followed closely by comfort eating. Probably the two main reasons for failed diets. Please wish me luck on this journey.

Hi Jalkal

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side or at the bottom if your on a mobile. Have a look at the nhs 12 week plan, many members have had success following this plan. Use the BMI checker to work out your daily calorie allowance.

Have a look at the Daily Diary which you can find on the Home page in Events. It is where all the members are sharing their daily plans on what they are eating and any exercise they are doing. This thread will give you some ideas on how to start.

Below the Pinned posts are the Topics where members share a range of weight related subjects.

Take your measurements at the start together with a photo so you can see the changes on the days the scales don't move.

We have daily weigh ins so why not come along and join us today. You can find the weigh ins on the Home page in the Events section on the right. Just click on the post in Events and record your start weight and any loss/gain or maintain for the week.

To get the most of the forum be active, share tips, recipes and experiences. Read some of the posts they are very motivating.

Have a good first week.

Hi JalKal. Welcome to this wonderful forum. I was in your shoes 2 months ago and after completing week 8 I am now a stone lighter. I have discovered willpower after 30 odd years of trying other diets and now see myself on a healthy eating plan that I can maintain. Stay on the forum and soak up the great advice, tips, encouragement and inspiration on here and you will succeed on your journey. Wishing you all the best .👍❤☹

Jalkal unlike other diets, the NHS program is not restrictive on what you eat therefore sustainable in the long run. Just eat clean and healthy meals according to your daily calorie allowance and you will be good to go. All the best in your journey!
