Back again!

Hello all!

I’ve been away for a long time. Back in late 2018, I joined Health Unlocked and got a lot of help and advice, then in 2019 I had a bad foot fracture and inaction took its toll. I basically stopped trying and life went on. Then my husband died very suddenly in 2020 and everything was made difficult by Brexit and Covid so I had too much to do to think, full stop.

It’s now 17 months later and, though not everything is sorted, it’s about time I started doing something about myself. So here I am! Computer said I couldn’t use my previous username because it was already used. I know that, I used it! 😂😂 It was annie dog walker.

I’ve gone back up to 71kgs and would like to go down to 65 as my first goal. I’m going off meat lately and would like to go on a 4/5 days veg and the rest meat, though right now I can only face white meat.

Well, that’s it for now, I hope to find some old names and to meet some new ones.

Welcome back, Annie :)

Sorry to hear you've had such a tough time of it. It's good to hear that you feel ready to take care of yourself now.

Why not just use your old profile as it has all of your past history here? All you need to do is sign in :)

As a reminder, all of the information you need about the forum can be found in Pinned Posts healthunlocked.com/weight-l... 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 :)

Hello Moreless.

I wanted to keep the old sign in but couldn’t do it, I’ll have to try again.

i hope to take an active part though right now life is a bit hectic. My house is on the market which does mean a lot of never ending cleaning, “just in case”! 😂 So I will try. I must re get used to the set up.

Thanks for your welcome.

If you look at your name next to your avatar, you'll see that you're using the anniedogwalker profile, so my advice to you, to prevent confusion, is to delete the annieliliane profile :)

Now, I already know I’m about to receive a prize for stupidity but how do I log out? I’ve never logged out! 😂😂

Are you using a different device to use anniedogwalker than you were using for annieliliane, because if you've never logged out, you have both profiles open?

Quite possibly, I’ve had this Ipad for a fair while.

And I can’t even remember the password I put down for annieliliane!!! It’s getting worst! 😂

On Tuesday 26th October, you opened your annieliliane profile and posted once.

On Wednesday 27th, you started using your anniedogwalker account again.

Did you use a different device on Tuesday to the one you've been using since?

No I remember that much, only because it’s the only one I have!

morelessAdministrator in reply to anniedogwalker

You must have inadvertently logged out of annieliliane, forgot the password and remembered your password for anniedogwalker. You're probably best leaving things as they are, but make a note of your anniedogwalker password and check when you're posting that you're always using your anniedogwalker profile :)

Hi mascotty02 ,it's good to see you back. I'm sure that you can remember your way around but if you can't I suggest that you begin at the pinned posts. Just click on the link below, scroll down until you find a post which interests you, click on the title to open the post. If you want to see another one just start again.

As always we find that participation is the key to success. The Daily Diary and the weekly Weigh In are very good places to begin.

Good luck 🍀

Hey, Thank you, I have been reading posts etc when they come through the mail box but not responded, I have been of work for over a month now with depression and another cancer scare and waiting for the neurologist to contact me now, supposed to be being fast tracked but 2 weeks now so unsure how fast their tracks are or if they have a braking system on the tracks. Take care and again thank you

Thank you so much mascotty02. I know the support here is very motivating and that’s what I need right now. There’s so much to do I’m not doing any planning and it’s a bit of a recipe for disaster! Try not to stay quiet for too long! Thanks.

Hello. Like you I’ve been away for a while and thinking about coming back. Your post has prompted me into action! Thank you! I’m sorry you have had a difficult time and I really hope it’s a case of everything ( except your weight.m) onwards and upwards now🙂 . As for you weight, I hope it’s a one way street - downwards all the way!
