Newbie, week 1 feeling positive 😃

Hi everyone, yes I am a yoyo dieter who lacks concentration. I can lose weight but eventually get bored with restrictions and slip back into my previous body shape and weight and more. I have never calorie counted before its always been points or syns. I hope to gain strength in numbers and with the support of my fellow nhs weight loss gang, lose the weight and KEEP it off once and for all!

Hi and welcome, Claresusan :)

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


You'll find all the information you need to navigate the forum in the header, so please take the time to read it carefully.

Wishing you all the best :)


Welcome Claresusan.

If you get a chance to read through the NHS 12 week plan you'll notice that it's not intrinsically about restriction (unless you count portion size).

Good luck!


Cheers Claresusan and welcome :D


Hi Claresusan, I'm a newbie here too and am more used to Syns and SW, but am going try calories and the 12 week plan this time. I'm interested to try something new, as I also need to break a yo-yo cycle. Good luck!


Ive also started this week and like you I’m a yo-yo dieter been on so many diets but never counted the kcal.

We can and will do it! 🙂


Hi and welcome Claresusan, wishing you all the best with your weight loss journey :)
