Hi all, this is my first post & Day 1 of my weight loss journey. Am feeling a bit overwhelmed & not really sure where/how to start. There is just so much information & resources, which is great, but I don't know what to start with first. x

Hi and welcome, NewMe4660 :)

Start by reading the Newbie Welcome post, then read through the rest of the information in Pinned Posts, so that you can confidently navigate the forum. Once you know where everything is, you can start joining in.

For a simple eating plan, you could follow this healthunlocked.com/api/redi...

All of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh... and I hope you'll be joining all the Events, Challenges and Clubs that we run, especially a weigh-in and the daily diary.

If you haven't already taken it, here's a tour of the forum healthunlocked.com/?tour=true

We've found active participation to be key to successful weight loss and, of course, it's a good way to get to know people, find inspiration and share support and encouragement.

Wishing you all the best :)

Hello, I only started last week, but tried my hardest to keep as close to 1400 calories a day and continued with couch to 5k (final week- 9) and was so pleased to finally see the scales finally go down this morning. Just take it daily. I make a note of everything that goes past my lips and roughly work out how many calories I can go up to for each meal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack. I spread things out. Fruit in afternoon. Yogurt later in the evening and lots of water during the day. Keep busy too. Good luck, once you get going & work out a way of how you’re going to do it, that’s the hardest part, you’ll be fine. 👍🏻

Be aware that 1400 calories is a generic amount, unsuitable for most of us, Scruffyhair. Put your details into the NHS BMI calculator for a more tailored range nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-we...
