Hi everyone!

I have just joined this community, and wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself a little bit. I am 31, originally from Hungary and I have been struggling with my weight ever since I was little. Always had bigger legs and tummy and felt fat. I want to change this now, lose weight and feel confident in my body finally first time in my life..

Hi there it sounds like you had a similar problem to me when I first joined. No diet I ever did worked and after joining here I found out this was because in general I never ate enough calories in a day. Because of my weight I didn't eat too much but this made my problem worse without me realising and the problem just went on more. I only ate about 1000 Cals a day. The NHS bmi calculator told me to eat between 1500ish and 1800ish to be able to lose weight. I thought why would I eat this much I am fat enough as it is. Eventually I gave it a go and ate more and all of a sudden I started losing weight. By not eating enough calories your body thinks you are starving it and turns what you do eat into body fat and this weighs more than eating the extra calories does so it stops you from losing weight and sometimes puts weight on instead. Don't make this same mistake and check out how many calories you should eat between to lose weight on the NHS bmi calculator as well. Good luck with your journey.
