New Entry!

nbzuk02020 November

Hello Everyone! A few days and i turn 30. I have been obese all my life, suffering with eating disorders :(. The previous year i met my fate when i was diagnosed with hypertension. I have tried weightloss numerous times, but never succeeded. I want to give myself another chance and hope this group would keep me and others motivated :)

Hello and welcome, nbzuk0 :)Have you thought about how you're going to go about it? I'd suggest avoiding diets and counting calories if you tend towards eating disorders. Maybe this simple plan would work for you

You'll find everything about the forum in Pinned Posts The more you join in, the more you'll get out of it. Joining a weekly weigh in and using the Daily Diary would be a good start.

Do some exploring, read posts, chat and encourage others and it will all pay off for you :)

Hello BridgeGirl. Thanks for the reply. I've overcome my eating disorder (90%) but i think the motivation to shed some pounds supercede the craving! :) Good luck to me and all of the rest. Looking forward to weekly weigh ins!

Good luck to you. Join the weigh in on the day of your choice, make sure to chat to others and you'll soon feel part of the team. Have a browse of the Daily Diary and join in when you're interested :)

Hi. I'm new too. Hope you find the support you need here. Have you thought about how you want to lose weight yet?

nbzuk02020 November in reply to Fatpizza

Hey! Fatpizza . The first thing I'm quitting are fat double cheese crusted pizza's :). Jokes apart, I plan to go for a walk at-least 1 hr everyday and reduce my calorific intake to 1400 Kcal/pd. I know the cravings will be quite high, but i think should fade away in a week. Will keep it posted.

Fatpizza2020 November in reply to nbzuk0

Ok. That sounds like a good plan. I'm not great at counting calories so it would be good to hear how you get on.

BridgeGirlAdministrator in reply to nbzuk0

Hi, what are you basing that calorie target on?

BridgeGirlAdministrator in reply to Fatpizza

Hello and welcome, Fatpizza :)

I see you don't fancy counting calories. You really don't need to count anything if you go for a straightforward plan like this

As I've mentioned to nbzuk. a good place to start is with a weekly weigh in on the day of your choice, anc using the Daily Diary. You'll find them both, and everything else you need, in Pinned Posts

All the best and I hope we'll see you around .

Yes you have took the first step coming to this sight this is my first time on here we got this girl we will do it together xx


Good luck! I’ve binged since I can remember so my weight has gone up and down like a flipping yo-yo! I finally discovered that food addiction is real and that my brain lights up like a Christmas tree when I eat sugar or flour! Calorie counting worked for me for so long but as soon as I had “just one” - that one would kick me back into bingeing. ☹️

I joined the bright line eating community which is a food addiction programme based on neuroscience, I’m now in maintenance and am successfully keeping off 132lbs. It’s not for everyone but may be worth a look.

nbzuk02020 November in reply to Sabby2021

Oh! that's interesting. I work in uni so maybe i could get some hold of Neuro and discuss with him :)

purple_ums2020 November

I’m new too! You can do it! Just take it a day at a time and go easy on yourself!

morelessAdministrator in reply to purple_ums

Hi and welcome, purple_ums :)

All of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts and we 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

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 :)

Hi Nbzuk0, if you are planning on walking for 1 hour each day then maybe do it in stages or on how you feel whilst you are walking. There is an app that is a free download called Active 10 and I think there is a group on HU that engage with this. I am wishing you good wishes on your weight loss journey. There is a lot of support on HU for you to access should you have need.

nbzuk02020 November in reply to Biomet

Hey! I have got the right tool-Strava in this case. Will share my stats here when i get started :)

Hi nbzuk0. Great to have you here with us. I have also been fighting with my weight all of my life and at double your age plus a bit that’s a long while😃. If you can with the help of the excellent people on this site and get to grips with a style of eating that suits you that would be worth the effort now. I wish I had found this many years ago and had the sense to use it. I my case I would probably have lacked the good sense. Wishing you every success whichever route you take.

nbzuk02020 November in reply to Dave1000

Hey! Dave1000. Thanks for the motivation. Its true that being fat all your life s''ks! But its never too late. Just for me, I've had this motivation come and go. You have setbacks, and then you quit and then one day you wake up to cope up again. I don't want to lose hope this year. :) Will keep my stats posted. All the best to you as well.

Good luck on your journey, I’m sure this group will help. 😁👍🏻

BiometRestart August 2020

I am in total agreement with CherryN.

Easiest way to start a weight loss task is to give up alcohol and go vegetarian.It is not a short term fix but a long term mission.

It is not going to be easy if it was everyone would be doing it.

Also exercise is going to be an essential part of any sustainable weight loss regime.

No easy choices but the rewards are worth it should you want them.
