Hi Nando

You don't really need someone to give you a diet and exercise plan, you can do it yourself. It's easy. There are articles, charts and calculators on the forum's website pages that are accessible from the menu at the top of this web page. All good generic plans, such as the free ones you see in the popular print magazines, are all based on the same set of principles - don't eat rubbish, eat less than your body needs to maintain a steady weight, and move around more. Their foods and motivational aspects may vary, but at the end of the day all weight-loss diets are pretty much the same.

IMO, You just need to educate yourself about weight-loss and nutrition. This forum is a good place to start as we're all going through, or have been through, the weight-loss process, and can offer information, advice and support. But part of of the process for many, if not most people who are overweight is to take back control of their life and regaining confidence.

There are three simple reasons I consider it important for a person to research ad understand the basics of weight-loss and nutrition:
1) If a person doesn't educate themselves about such things then they will remain at the mercy of charlatans and misinformation. A person needs to be able to sift through through the chaff to get to the wheat, so to speak.
2) If a person does not understand how a process such as weight-loss works means that when an problem (such as a plateau developing) there is a risk of of the person assuming it's permanent or not fixable and will give up needlessly.
3) Plans need to be tailored to a individual, and an individual knows her/himself better than anyone else. The plan needs to incorporate not only the basics for losing weight but also cater for the motivations and learned habits of the individual.

Hi Nancy,

We have deactivated the links in all signatures as we have been hit by spammers over the last 2 weeks. We have had to make changes to many things but if anyone genuine user wants us to reinstate just for them then we are happy to, just not to newly registered users as I am sure you can understand. As long as the URL is not an advertisement for any product or service it is not an issue.

I will deactivate this for you this morning.

Cheers

Sharrelle

HI
I have had a look at the permissions and all is switched on.
Can someone with a ticker help out on what they have done to upload their ticker. I personally am not specialised in this attachment, I can try and find out today but if someone else has a quick how to guide that would be most helpful to Carolyn.

Thanks

I tried to use ticker too in this site but seems like it's not allowing me. I'm just not sure if it's my notebook's permissions or connection permission. Or there could really be something. I also need help in ticker. It's a good app that will help us track progress easily.
