    So weigh in this morning, and I am quite pleased with myself! Lost 2.5lbs this week, even after what could have been a disastrous weekend (ate out twice, plus party food), and only doing one lot of proper exercise all week!!

    Also, took my measurements this morning, and starting to see some inch loss as well! woohoo!!

    wo - just done day 1 of the 30 day shred! well, half of it I'm so unfit I struggled just to do 2 mins of cardio in-between the strength training! I'm a little jelly-like!
    i didn't want to overdo it on day one - still got a 4 month old to look after!

    I don't find the press ups too bad so far-its the squats for me! Lol

    So yesterday I was good and even though I was busy all day I still exercised. Managed to fit it in gone 7pm, which I am pleased about as another day I'd have said forget it!

    Disappointed about today though. Was out all day so didn't have a chance! Baby played up last night so we slept in this morning-no time before we went out. Then we got in gone 11 tonight and I thought I'd do a quick half hr then, but no. Baby plays up again and doesn't give in till quarter to 1!

    Will try and exercise twice tomorrow, though I might not be mad enough to do a jillian workout twice in one day! Might do 30 day shred and taebo or interval training on the exercise bike!

    Today hasn't been great. Haven't done the 30 day shred yet again! I was out all day doing wedding stuff, meeting the wedding co-ordinator at the reception venue, then went shopping for jewellery, head-dresses and shoes. All was going well there. Loved my shoes and everything.
    Then I get home and my OH gives me bad news about his job (they are really mucking him about-have already cut his hours and therefore wages, and now they want him to take unpaid days off with no notice - aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhhhh hhhhh!!)
    Anyway - I was well pee'd off, and to prevent me blowing a fuse and taking it out on OH, I decided to lock myself away in the kitchen and have a good clear out.

    So - only just came out of the kitchen (and calmed down slightly). Nearly midnight so its too late to start exercising now. Especially when I don't know how much sleep I am going to get before LO wakes up.

    So disappointed with myself for not sticking to my 30 day shred plan
    I'm going to start again tomorrow, and I WILL do it for 30 consecutive days!
    So 30 day shred as an absolutely minimum, and I will try to add in a bit more cardio as well when I can, in the form of TaeBo and interval training.

    10 weeks, and 6 days to go

    Would be so easy to wallow in a kilo of chocolate right now!

    Must plan my days better - ending up exercising between 10:40-11:10pm!! way too late but I was determined not to miss it again! Glad I did it though!

    So weigh in this morning, I lost 1.5lbs this week. Not the best, but at least its going in the right direction!

    10 weeks to go now!!! eek! really got to knuckle down and do this!! If I carry on losing an average of 2lbs a week I will get down to 12st 13.5 by my fitting. which is fine, my dress will fit. but I would rather lose more if I can. If I can do 3.5lbs a week, I should get down to 11st 12.5 - much better - might even be able to push that down to 11st 7 so that my BMI is less than 30. Would rather be an overweight bride than an obese one! lol

    Hey Hun! Well done on ur losses and the exercise! Don't worry about everyday with the shred. I know u want too but life gets in the way sometimes, don't be hard on urself

    Sorry to hear about OH's job, what a nightmare ! My oh has had no work since mid dec, Duno how where managing!!!

    Ooohhhh so close now! Ur goals look achievable yayyy u can do it!!

    Im having to go back to a vlcd for a while! I went docs last week about my belly, and even after losing 5 stone and being a stone away from a healthy Bmi I have way too much lower belly fat and was basically told there's no hope
    So hoping to shift a stone and see if it makes a difference!!! Xxx

    Yes - life certainly gets in the way sometimes!!

    OH came home today to say he has now been laid off - was given his one weeks notice. Wonderful!!
    I know its bad of me, and I am so lacking in willpower, but for today I am off the diet and exercise (though strictly just for one day!) With me just being on SMP, and my OH now being made redundant, I am now super worried and majorly stressed, and in desperate need of alcohol, chocolate and high fat foods!!

    I haven't done the shred today - started off the day trying to catch up with housework, then we've had news of my OH's redundancy on top of a teething baby who wants her mummy the whole time she is awake, I haven't had time. Said baby has just started to drift off to sleep, but to be honest, I cannot be bothered right now!! Will give myself today off and make up for it tomorrow. Might do a bit of TaeBo or cardio boxing on the Wii as well as the 30 day shred - might help me to release some tension!!
    I had wanted to book myself on an exercise course that runs up until our wedding, but I guess I won't be doing that now!!

    I'm confused - why did the Dr say there was basically no hope? Hopefully if you lose a bit more weight you will start to feel happier about your belly.Have you tried toning exercises? I have a feeling I'm not going to be very happy with my belly once I've lost the weight. I've already got some excess skin there from where I had my daughter. Though I am going to keep that in perspective and try to just be happy with the tummy being flatter. I have got a rather hideous roll on fat between my breasts and belly button that I am dying to get rid of!!!

    What VLCD are you going on? Have you done it before? I'm beginning to wonder whether I should go on one for a couple of weeks to help me out, but I've read a lot of bad things about them!
    How did you lose your 5 stone Stef - which diet? xXx

    Hey hun big hugs xxxx

    It's such a nightmare, you should ring the job centre, tax credits and your council to see what benefits ur entitled too, I understand the stress and worry I've had to go through this all the time with OH being self employed its crap! You will get sorted though xxxx

    A day off sounds like what is needed!!! Anyway a day off now and then boosts ur metabolism so will do you good

    Basically no hope because there is a huge amount of belly fat and I'm only a stone away to enter my healthy Bmi, I havt even started to get loose skin there yet even after 5 stone LOL so no hope that te belly fat will go unless it's surgically removed, so gonna do my damn best to get it as small as poss, I probably have perfect abs under all that fat haha!

    It's slim and save, I did it before for 10 weeks, lost a stone on my own, 3 with slim and save and 1 with Atkins. Hmmm vlcds have been frown upon for a long time but now doctors seem to be recommending them! I don't believe ppl should stay on it for months and months, well I wouldn't anyway, but every now and again there isn't any harm its just very hard to do! Atkins is a great diet and gives brilliant results xxxx

    hey Stef - we did that over christmas when he was last technically laid off (although he had another job lined up he had to register as unemployed at the jobcentre to make sure he can get his redundancy money as its going through official receiver). From the initial forms we filled out (so in depth it took me 3hrs!) they reckon we are entitled to nothing! Because of the financial year that they base his contributions on (when OH was between perm jobs and doing perm work for the first 8 months, then worked 50hrs a week for last 4!) they say he didn't make enough national insurance contributions to qualify for JSA! I'm sure if we had to take it further they'd either put him on income-based JSA or income support, as I'm sure they'd realise that we cannot live on my 135 a week maternity pay! we should then also get help with mortgage, rent (on shared ownership) and council tax, but to be honest I'd rather not claim anything! They make it so damn hard to get any kind of help!

    Luckily OH called agency today (the last one he was signed up for that before he got a perm job) and they say they have got some temp work on their books that they can sort him out with. got to take his ID and P45 down there tomorrow, so hopefully he won't be completely out of work for too long! Thank god - as much as I love him I don't think I want him home with me 24/7! lol

    It sucks that you have to go through this all of the time-I don't think I could cope with that! I like to know exactly what is coming in and out all the time-have several spreadsheets that I update throughout the month! haha

    That is really strange that you haven't lost much from your belly after all the weight that you have lost! I find that is one of the first places to lose inches-its hardest to get it to shift from my hips, bum and thighs (unfortunate, as that is where I really need to lose it from to fit into my wedding dress!).

    Hhhhmmmm I might see how I get on in the next week - will stick to my calories but try to up my exercise. If I don't lose as much weight as I want to I might try a VLCD or the 5/2 diet.
    The day off the diet was fine for me, by the way! I got on the scales this morning expecting a gain after having cheese, alcohol and a ton of chocolate yesterday, but my weight actually went down a tiny bit!! result!! maybe a binge is what is needed every so often - stop your body getting used to the lower calories going in and adapting your metabolism to suit!

    Has your GP ever referred you to someone about your weight loss? Sounds really strange to me that you have to go to such lengths to lose any amount of weight!

    Kind of had a couple of days off from proper dieting and exercise! whoops!! though thankfully I haven't put any of the weight back on.
    Got a baby-free weekend this week, so I WILL get up and exercise before we go out anywhere. Will do a minimum of an hours exercise tomorrow.

    Ah but we all know what the GP's are like - I think they have a list of things that they must test you for - most life threatening/costly to the NHS. If it's something that someone considers to be livable or something, then they just won't test for it! I had to fight to have tests for PCOS, and I am sure that I have issues with one or more of my hormones (besides weight issues I wake up most nights covered in sweat - sorry, TMI). Actually even my GP said it is something to do with one of my hormones, but in his words "there are too many to test". They made sure I wasn't in early menopause and my thyroid function, and that's it, just get on with all your issues. And my mum has been asking Dr's for help with her weight for years now, and they just ignore her! You'd think they'd want to help her lose the weight before she becomes diabetic or something! weird!!

    Weekend baby-free was lovely, especially as I had the house spick and span before she went, so I really had a chance to put my feet up! Though I practically had to steal her back from my mum and dad!!

    Yes this is what I am thinking Stef - technically I have had a rubbish week diet wise, but according to the scales this morning I haven't put on any weight! Ok so I haven't lost any either, but considering how much chocolate and other high fat/calorie foods I have had this week I think I have done well.
    But, I am still going to give 5:2 diet a try now. I don't think Rosemary Conley is the diet for me long-term. Well trying to eat low fat is ok, but I think restricting your calories every single day isn't a great idea - I don't want to muck up my metabolism!
