Sorry to hear you've been unwell happyinlove. Lucky you, being able to explore Barcelona which is my favourite city.

Don't worry about not being able to see a difference... try picking up 5 large bags of sugar, which is the weight you've lost so far, and carry them around all day :) Are you taking tape measurements as they can often show changes even when we can't see them.

I think that if you join one of the weekly weigh-ins then you could have a 5kg badge by your name to show the good work you've achieved.

Good luck and happy new year to you too! :)


Hello and welcome back happyinlove, I’m glad you enjoyed Barcelona in spite of your cold. 😊

If you haven’t already then please have another read the Pinned Posts here healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh... a few things have changed recently but it’s still,the best place to start and it’s where you will find all the information you need to find your way around

This is a very busy forum with lots going on, and nothing beats joining in, reading posts and replying to others. Our group Weigh-in and the Daily Diary are probably the best places to start.

Best wishes

Indigo 😊


Hi happyinlove,

Really sorry to hear about your cold, but really well done for not letting it get you down and stay in doors, instead going to Barcelona and exploring. Colds are always a real hack when you're trying to be good ( I know, I've had one too) but to lose 5kg is amazing considering. I've only just started and have lost 4lb in 13 days. It will always take time to see a real difference, but do take tape measurements, as you will see the loss that way, even if you cannot see it through the mirror.

Keep going and stay strong.
