Got to keep mt eye on the ball

Hi everyone , i've not been on here for a while I got a bit fed up with myself whatever I did calorie intake wise I couldn't lose weight going to gym most days doing park runs weekly, I kept getting told I was not eating enough calories so I started eating more did not make any difference to my weight so I more or less let myself go, I was still going to gym 5 days a week but let my diet go altogether. I decided enough was enough so plucked up courage to get on scales last Monday shock horror I was 68kg at a mere 5ft & a bit I felt like a dumpling & my clothes had become tighter so got my head together & I have been on a strict diet since counting every calorie & upped my exercise as well as going to gym going on an early morning half hour walk it seems to be paying off as today I weigh 66kg I have never lost as much in a week ever so I don't expect this to continue but it's given me a boost, I would like to get to 60kg ( I live in hope )

  • Welcome back kbed and well done for managing to break your plateau and losing 2kg :)

    Have you considered joining a weigh-in and logging onto the Daily Diary?

  • Hi moreless, I'm not sure how to join the weigh in?

  • In that case, kbed, I'm going to give you all the newbie information and a newbie badge, so that you can start from scratch and will know your way around 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.

    Take a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as a lot of people have been successful with it, making sure to enter your details into the NHS BMI calculator, to get a calorie allowance tailored to your personal requirements. 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, our Daily Diary, where we post our menu and exercise plans, for accountability, advice and support 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.

    It's only left for me to wish you well on your journey :)
