I’ve found a website that I’m quite excited about but it won’t work if I don’t have any friends :-(
I’ve got 3 stone to lose and struggle with motivation.
The website is free and has the following blurb. I promise I don’t work for them just think it’s a fun idea was created to help make losing weight fun and to help set you on the path for a healthier future. We help you harness the strength and commitment that comes from competition.
We believe that being able to track your performance against others, compare notes with people on the same journey and win trophies and recognition helps sustain momentum and even makes losing weight fun.
If you fancy it I’ve set up a Mumsnet 2018 public group and you can find the site at the below address

I wanted to join but it said group was full? @octopusarmenvy please can I join thanks!

ladybirdsaidneveraword · 11/03/2018 23:36

This sounds great- I joined too!

ladybirdsaidneveraword · 11/03/2018 23:38

Thank you for suggesting it. Mrs Jones- when you go to manage groups, make sure you can see the whole screen. First time I tried I clicked on Mumsnet, got into group info, then tried to hit join and it told me the group was full. 2nd attempt I could see the whole screen, and selected join on the far right, and had no problems. That's a shit explanation, but I hope it helps. Do we want to have an organised weigh in day or shall we wing it?

MiraB · 11/03/2018 23:52

I've joined too, thank you ! Really need some inspiration ...

popkat1 · 12/03/2018 21:34

Ooo interesting!! I will have a look, need all the support I can get lol

OctopusArmEnvy · 13/03/2018 16:57

👋 great to see 11 of us joined :-) I don’t think it matters exactly which day you weigh in but don’t forget to do it :-)
How is everyone doing? I found the weekend hard but not too bad other than that xx

Alright, I've recorded my first entry !

ladybirdsaidneveraword · 13/03/2018 20:37

I've recorded my entry too. I feel so so fat... this has made me have to admit it. We just had family pictures taken and I look so shit in them. And the best my husband could say is: well, what do you expect. So yeah... feeling great

ladybirdsaidneveraword · 13/03/2018 20:38


OctopusArmEnvy · 13/03/2018 21:25

Hey ladybird, You're doing so well in acknowledging and doing something to change the situation. I am sure from now on we will all keep at it and build a healthier life as Envy said.

ladybirdsaidneveraword · 14/03/2018 09:32

Thank you. Being good today with my overnight oats and apple! Really will try and stay on track.

Hi, I've been trying to join the group but it won't let me, I keep pressing the join group button but it doesn't do anything after that. Is there another way to join?
