Making the Change

Making the Change

Finally being proactive about making that start to jump start my health and well being. Got into some pretty sloppy habits - zero exercise, run away sweet tooth and East Coast wines! So here goes...initiating the change. Need to lose 7 kgs, get into a routine of some sort of exercise three times a week and curb the night time sugar. Now if I could just put it into action...Lol.

  • You can do it! 😀

  • Thanks xx All the best to you too!

  • Thanks, if you need any tips don't be afraid to ask.

  • Very kind x Thank you :) I will do!

  • Have you got a plan?

  • Hi and welcome, Rejuvenate :)

    I have to say, that you look super slim in your photo! :)

    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 (you will choose just one day per week), 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 :)

  • Yes, its one of those "need to get back to that me" photo!

    It's more the exercise and eating well than the weight loss.

    Thanks for the encouragement and the great job you do monitoring the forum :)

  • Sounds like a good plan. Just make sure you make your exercise your priority for that day - done let anything prevent you from doing it. After awhile it will become a habit. I power walk every night and do between 3 and 4 miles a day. If I skip a day Ifeel so quilts

  • Yes I agree - very good advise thank you. My work is research based so I tend to be at a desk all day which doesn't help. How long have you been power walking for now?

  • For over a year. Have lost 50 pounds. I'm 5'8" and now wear a size 10 but still want to lose more. I want to lose enough so I can eat things once in awhile that I shouldn't or have a glass of wine and not feel guilty.

  • Wow that's fabulous! You must be feeling pretty pleased with your achievements :) Yes, I know what you mean about having a bit of a buffer...I'm the same else it doesn't take long to run away from you! When the metabolism starts to run slower its a real uphill battle. All the best with your next goal :)

  • Good luck to you on your journey!!

  • Thank you! You also.
