Hi I am complete novice who needs some guidance and support I have a couple of stones to loose as a result of eating too much and doing too little due to a lot,of stress resulting in anxiety. Sure I’m not alone This is all very new to me and I’m not very good at asking for help as I am usually the support for others. Also I think this is the first time I have actually admitted that I am very anxious as I usually just blunder along. Sure that is familiar with a lot of you too. My self esteem is pretty low which I think the menopause and weight gain is fuelling. Any advise is welcome thank you 😊

Thank you think it will be quite the journey. Starting with trying to navigate the site as I’m not very technical to say the least! 😋


Hi and welcome, Yorksgal :)

The way you're feeling will probably ring true for a lot of us, but being here, with like-minded and similarly focused people, will help, I have no doubt :)

As you've mentioned the menopause, have a look at this and see if you feel it may apply to you (not the age reference ;) )

To make navigating the forum easier, we've put all the information you'll need in a newbie pack and here's the link

Please take the time to read it carefully, so that you're able to enjoy everything that we have on offer.

We ask that you also read this important information about internet privacy and security, especially as you've left your post unlocked.

Wishing you all the best :)

Thank you 😊


What you say certainly rings bells with me :)

You don't have to be very technical to find your way around. Use the link moreless has given you; I'd suggest you find your way to the weigh-in first of all - being part of a team to get - and give, that's equally important - support with a regular group will make you feel involved. Then look out the Daily Diary for help with planning your meals. Have a look at all the recipes and start trying something new - make it enjoyable, which it truly is. And have a look at all the challenges and clubs in Pinned Posts. Take your time, there is such a lot here for you, to help you on your way.

Thank you 😊
