Hello and welcome, Faith7 :)

You can jump straight in and join the Monday Mass Movers weigh in in the morning: they're a friendly team and will make you very welcome. Then check out the daily diary, where members share their meal and exercise plans for the day. And there are plenty of other activities to join in with. You'll find everything by following this link to Pinned Posts.

The more you join in, the more you'll get out of it so I hope we'll see you out and about, around the forum :)

Welcome back, Jules3142 and BlueMole :)

As a reminder, 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.

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 :)

I'm on week 3 of the NHS programme. Really enjoying it. Hope you do too. Am seeing results already, which is a boost and an incentive to keep with it. Good luck!

Hi there ! Well done on being on week 3 and see results!! It’s great you are enjoying it. I feel I’ve just had enough and am really ready to make changes, I can’t wait to see results too! X

Hello and welcome to this friendly community. It's second to none for support and encouragement - reaches the parts that slimming clubs can't reach!

There is so much going on you will never be bored and a great bunch of people will help weight loss be a bit more fun.

Good luck and best wishes.

Hi Faith7 and welcome. I'm a fairly new member here myself, so still learning my way around the platform. 'Psyching' myself up is more than half the battle, I've found and the way you do this will differ from one person to another. It's all a very personal thing and it's all in the mind. There's plenty to read here and I've been amazed at how much time can be spent doing it but it's very absorbing and lovely to 'meet' people and read their stories and experiences! Good luck and 'see' you around!

The stage where enough is enough! Like you (read ur profile) have got a choc addiction too and defo emotional eater ! I don’t drink but turn to choc when dressed, depressed tired etc . Problem is it’s feeding the problem . I’m going try do other activities when feeling like that :)
