Weight Loss Support Group FAQs

Our Weight Loss Support Group is an online community where users support one another, sharing their weight loss experiences and journeys.

Weight loss is seldom just about losing weight - it's also about changing habits and lifestyle. For many committing to lose weight is a big step, and the start of a long journey that can often be disheartening if tackled alone. Our Weight Loss Support Group offers advice and encouragement, and celebrates each goal reached and maintained. Take a look at the questions most frequently asked and how others have dealt with it.

To everyone who has lost weight or still in the process, how do you keep motivated?  I have been at it for just 3 weeks and have lost 3kg.  It's like I wish I could fast-forward the whole process and wake up weighing 58kg. I hate this losing 0.7 a week story! This is after I took a 1 year break last year after losing 8kg. I was just tired of thinking before I eat.  Any tricks you use to convince yourselves it's worth it, especially on weekends?
