Hello all,

I am new in here. I would like to lose about 15kg. I have done it few years ago when have had a good motivation to find a partner. After it is happened I still was trying to live healthier life but it was harder and harder as my partner cooking very good. I would like to go for 3 month nhs diet. Thinking to start from 1st September. is there anyone else who would like to do it at same time and take a challenge who is going to be doing it for longer. Sometimes competing with others can help with motivation. If someone would like to accept my challenge please let me know.

Good luck! I'm already in ten weeks, but I would if I was just starting. Someone will take you up on that challenge, I'm sure.

Welcome vmat

This is an amazing forum to be part of. Many of people on here have different areas of concern but we are all trying to get to, or maintain, our desired weight. As you get to know us, and share experiences with us, you will find what a super supportive bunch we are, and that we don't pass judgements.

Here are a few suggestions about how to get the most out of the forum.

The first place to look is at the Pinned Posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and 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 topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news; and you will have important news to share with us.

Have a look at the NHS 12-week plan; many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This can be a major turning point, realising you can eat anything as long as the calories are accounted for and are within your personal limit.

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; that happens to me quite regularly!

The forum also has group weigh-ins every day, just choose which day you wish to weigh, join the post for that day and weigh in once per week. The Daily Diary is a very useful thread where we post our planned menu for the day, including calories if you count them, any exercise you have planned and any tips that you can share. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page.

If you just want to chat, to say hello, or share any news or struggles then look out for the What's Happening Today thread. There are many other challenges to get involved with, just choose to do what you are comfortable with and feel free to join as many, or as few as you wish.

The grey box next to people's names are achievement badges, and as a new member of the community you have a 'Newbie' badge. We've found that to get the best out of this community, you 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.

If you are using the new HU App on your mobile phone (helpful for when you are out and about), many of features mentioned are not available; use the full website version to maximise your experience.

If you have any questions please just ask. The more you join in and connect with people the more you get out of the forum.

I wish you well as you get started with a new lifestyle.



Hey I've started today but would happily take up your challenge! Why are you waiting till 1st September to start? I'd like to lose a similar amount to you also. Day 1 going well but I've eaten dinner too early tonight and now craving a pudding. I've got 400 calories left of my allowance and there's a chocolate pudding in the fridge I'm trying to resist!


Hello MumwithGoals, I want to start from 1st September just because more people could join us. I think some people gonna fail. I think to live on calorie counter is the same like quitting smoking or drinking if you are really good drinker, as we all are good eaters :) If you could wait till 1st September believe me it is gonna be interesting and more chances to make it than on your own. 1st day is the most easiest as your body full of calories from before. The fun starts after few days when you not just thinking about the food but also physically feeling that your body doesn't get the amount of calories that it use to.
