From big to slim , slim to big :(

Hi my name is Kirsty I'm 29 .. around 5 years ago I managed to get myself from 18stone 3lbs to 11stone 3lbs losing 7 stone it took me just over 2 years !

I then met my partner boosted my confidence a lot but I definitely got a little to comfy , 5 years on we have ourselves a gorgeous 2 1/2 year old and we're planning our wedding for sometime 2019 but I'm extremely depressed as I've gained back 5+ stone and my anxiety and depression is at an all time high :( I really need something to click in my head and have the determination I once had any help would be appreciated !

welcome to the forum Kirkee88- an administrator will be along shortly to give you some advice about the forum, we have challenges for anyone to enter to help motivate with exercise, there are weekly weigh-ins for every day of the week, meal/snack suggestion etc (computer they are under Topics, to the right of screen on the app they are at the bottom). if you want to celebrate, relieve frustration or just want to ask a question then post it and you'll get a response. Its a very supportive forum and people (though not medical experts) can give you information based on their own experiences of loosing weight, falling of the wagon and resisting temptation. I hope you find the forum useful and helpful and the sharing is two way

Hi Kirkee88 and welcome to the weight loss forum :)

Hello Kirkee88 and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum

You have the best reason in the world for doing this, what a perfect inspiration!

Here are a few suggestions on how to get the most out of the forum. Please note if you are using the new HU App many of these features are not available so I suggest you use the full website version.

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 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 checker 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

The forum also have group weigh-ins every day, as well as a new Daily Diary, if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page. And if you just want to chat, to say hello or share any news or struggles then look out for What's Happening Today thread.

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you have a 'Newbie' badge. 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. If you have any questions please just ask

Best wishes
