Just needed to say this is the first time I've joined anything like this network that supports weightloss. I'm a 71 year old women and started my committed weightloss journey at 13st 9Lb back on the 22 June 2022. I am doing intermittent fasting and calorie counting in a Clever Fox food diary, and it seems to be working slowly. As of a wegh in today I am 12st 1lb. I have been very fit and active my entire life up until a diagnosis of quite severe fibromyalgia 5 years ago. I walk, stretch and do what I'm able on a day to day basis. I do not take the meds as they cause bad side effects including obesity. However in my prime I was 9st and that seems a long way off. When I hit 14st I started 15/9 intermittent fasting, then in June 22 decided enough was enough. I don't need to be 9st. But I would like to be a size 10 or 12 dress size. I've gone from a size 18 to a 14. On the whole I'm pleased, but there are days when I could do with a bit of support. I am however beginning to like what I look like again. So I'm looking forward to learning how the network works and hopefully be a part of it fully. Xx

Hello and welcome to this friendly and supportive forum. You have made a great start losing a stone and half on your own.

All the information you need to find your way around can be found in pinned posts

Do have a good look around and read all the links. It can be confusing to start with.

You might like to start by posting your start weight on the weigh in. Click on the link in pinned posts ans reply to walkthis way.

The daily diary is good for meal ideas and FitisFun for exercise.

We do suggest you join in as much as possible to benefit most from the support here. If you have any questions just ask.

Thank you. I will have a good look around first as it does seem a bit overwhelming. I'm sure it will all be clear soon, but thank you for the warm welcome.
