First official weigh-in

Good morning all, I weighed myself this morning and I weigh 110kg (17 stone 4 lbs). How do I feel about this? Sad, disappointed and frustrated that I've allowed myself to gain so much weight. It's the heaviest I've been! The worst part of weighing so much is I know what foods are better for me and what foods have made me this size.... On a positive note, by joining this site I know I am not alone and feel blessed that I've been given this opportunity to meet other people who will support me on this journey and who I can also support.

Hi signinemma43 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 😊

Would you like to weigh in on the Sunday Super Slimmers weigh in? The post is in events... you will get more support from the group weigh in 👍🏻

Cheering you to success to reach your goals 🎉🎉🎉

I felt the same when I tipped the scales at 18 stone, was such a toned skinny minnie, gym bunny a few years back I beat myself up thoroughly for letting it all happen but that has stopped, its time to move forward and let the scales go the other way, good luck to you :-)

I myself felt the same when I weighed in at 250 pounds. Enough is enough for me and I have lost 10.5 pounds. By eating healthy and joined a cheaper gym in my price range. And helping as much as I can help people on the forum. I bless you on your weight loss and the scales!!...
