Weight loss Buddies wanted

I live in the Durham area and have just joined the site.

I would like to meet up with people to exercise with - go walking, join a gym etc.. as well as encourage / motivate each other regarding healthy eating.

I have started taking supplements to increase energy levels as the weight gain has been mainly due to illness, but now I'm just downright unfit! Any advice / support greatly appreciated

Morning Mermaid58 hope you are over your illness :) at the top of the screen you see an arrow next to your name if you click on that it provides a drop down list and if you click on 'People near me' you will find others in your area if they have also clicked on it :)

I would 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, or re-starting.

If you just post a few words on the November Newbie Club thread to introduce yourself and respond to others there you will soon feel part of the club.

Follow this link to the Newbie club: healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh...

Please read all the information carefully, it is very useful and can be referred to whenever you want to check something.

It just remains for me to wish you well on your journey

Thank you. I feel quite daunted as I have never been overweight before. I don't recognize myself, Iv'e gone from being slim and active to fat and unfit in the last 8 years. Illness has been the main reason, then I have lost my confidence and motivation. Desperately need to get it all back :(
