Getting started on my weight loss journey

Hello - I've joined in an effort to finally shift this weight. I've slowly put on a few stone in the last few years and it's gotten to the point where I feel awful and want to be the happiest version of myself again. I am aiming to lose 2.5 stone by July and want to know if you have any tips on how I can do this please? Any advice at all is welcome. Glad to be on this journey. Thanks

Hi Nicole! Thanks for your message. I was just having a read of your recent post and it really relates to exactly how I'm feeling right now. My BMI claims I'm obese as I'm quite short for my weight and I really want to shift this weight and get to a more happier and confident version of myself. Anyway nice to meet you and I would love to recommend some smoothie recipes- I'm a huge smoothie lover! What sort of fruit and veg do you like?

I have a confession to make...that was posted 3 years ago 🙈 but thanks for reading.

Since that post I have tried numerous ‘diets’ such as weight watchers and slimming world yet here I am no better off!

I did start the couch to 5k a while back which I was very proud of and enjoying, but due to ill health and various other factors (mostly excuses) I didn’t start up again 😔 although I am going shopping for a treadmill this week 😀

I’m a big fan of fruit and less enthusiastic with vegetables if I’m honest so any suggestions you have I’m willing to give a whirl.
