Hi all, I'm new here and at the end of my tether. I've tried many different diets which work for a stones loss then I hit a plateau!

I suffer with health conditions which make it nigh on impossible for me to exercise which is highly infuriating for someone who was once a fitness freak!

I need to drop a whopping 5 stone ! Really looking for friends and support on here to help me change my life.

Love & Light

Hi Clairez you've come to the right place for friends and support :)

Sorry to hear of your health issues

I'd like to invite you to join our Newbie Club, which we hope will be a good place for you to connect with members, who are also just starting out. If you just post a few words to introduce yourself and respond to others there, you'll soon break the ice. Here's the link


I've also given you a week 1 badge.

Wishing you all the best

Thank you and i'm now following to newbie club x


Don't worry you will get lots of support on here, if it wasn't for here I still wouldn't be losing any weight. No other diets worked for me and I can't believe I have finally managed to lose 2 1/2st and am the smallest weight I have ever been since I have been an adult, even my husband can't believe it. He keeps asking me who has stolen his wife. I love hearing him saying comments like this, it gives me a further push that I must be doing something right. My problem before was that I was never eating enough calories. Do make sure you eat enough otherwise you will come to problems and this was the first place I ever found this sort of thing out, all my life. I can't believe it. Good luck with your journey.


Welcome Clairez.

You've already got plenty of information from cracker10 and Hubbysmissmouse.

Just like to add that you may well hit plateaux whilst here, I think most of us do at some point. A big difference here, is you'll get so much support to help you get through them, plus explanations as to why they sometimes occur and what you can do about them.

Stay in contact and you'll get further than you have previously.

Good luck!


Welcome Clairez

I feel like I've been welcomed only joined last night myself. The support u get on here is great
