I thought I would finally post a success story. I am 30 years old, transman from the UK, I wasn't a big person growing up, I was very skinny until I got hit pretty badly with depression and I doubled in weight in the space of a few years. I went from 7.5 stone (105lbs) at my lowest to just over 17 stone (240lbs) at my…
Looking for more LGBT friends

Musicals and Theatre
What musicals and theatre do you folks like? My partner is very into musicals so we go to the theatre a fair amount. My favourites so far have been Chess, Avenue Q, Priscilla the Musical, Lion King and Phantom of the Opera. I should try and get to see some plays more.
I'm looking for cheap, easy meal ideas that don't involve any cooking equipment. We are currently based in a hotel due to our flat being flooded. We don't have any access to cooking facilities so need ideas that don't require a kitchen. We will be bringing the microwave down from the flat and basic kitchen tools (knives,…

How much sleep do you get?
I get between 8-10hrs on an average night but sometimes as much as 12hrs. I was wondering how much sleep you all get. If I don't have my amitriptyline (to help with night pain) then I'm lucky if I get between 2-4hrs.
Still seeing yourself as big
So far I've lost about 35lbs and although the tape measure, scales, clothes all show that I've lost weight, I still see myself as big as I was before. My mind is having trouble catching up with my body. I still keep reaching for the XL clothes forgetting that they are far too big for me now and I should be going for a…
Confused about BMR
I'm a long time listener of fat2fit radio and they always hammer on about not eating below BMR which for me is 1800-1900 yet if I set myself as sedentary I get 1700 on MFP. I get rather confused as to what to set my activity level, I am a wheelchair user and a student when I'm not in lectures I push myself around campus a…
