Hi, you are in the right place for lots of great support and lovely people that will cheer you on. Good luck on your journey 😀


Good luck! I've only just come back to the forum and am getting great support already.


Hello mrsomebody and welcome to the weight loss forum. Please have a good read of the Pinned Post “Welcome Newbies”.

This is a very large community with lots going on. May I suggest you use the webpage as opposed to the app at least until you know your way around. Take your time and follow every thread so that you know exactly what’s going on.

Here’s the link for a “Tour” of the forum ,if you haven’t already taken it.

If you are following the NHS plan please check your BMI on the NHS site and obtain the correct amount of calories for you.

The Daily Diary and the Weekly Weigh ins are very good places to begin. You will find the DD and WI in the Pinned Posts under “Events”

I find the Daily Diary a very good place to share my plans and get inspiration from other members, too. Once the day’s food is written down I’m far more likely to stay on track.

The key to success is participation, we are all on the same journey.

If you can’t find something just shout, there’s usually someone around.

I hope to “see” you around, Good Luck.🍀😉

It can take a while, but even a loss of a few grams or ounces per day (on average) can have a huge impact over a long term. I went down around 5 clothes sizes (much of which was on my belly) by following techniques discussed here on the forum. Good luck with your process.

A 'belly' may not be all fat, so just loosing weight may not get rid of it, however what helps you loose weight will contribute to loosing the 'belly'. A 'belly' is often caused by inflammation due to chronic inflammation which is caused by diet. One cause may be bread and other wheat based products another is refined cooking oils. Avoiding bread cakes and biscuits will reduce the inflammation and reduce the carb intake which will help to reduce weight.
