    Smile Angel72's Big Bulge Battle

    Right, that's it! I tried on a new dress this morning. Size 30. I've been living in Leggings for well over a year now and just hadn't realised how much my weight had spiralled.

    In January I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy. I was the same weight at the end of the delivery as I was at the start of pregnancy. I was really pleased. But 20st5 has now increased to 23st6 in just 9 months. I blame my wonderful husband kindly picking up a lot of the cooking (usually of the Ping or pick up school of cookery) and all the wonderful goodies friends have brought me. Absolutely nothing to do with the fact I ate the lot!

    I have always struggled with my weight. At 10years old I weighed 10stone and was put on my first diet. I've only ever been less than 14st once and that was in 2009 after losing 100lb on LL.
    my incentive was to have a baby and also improve my mobility. I'm a wheelchair user since an accident in 2006. My legs don't work. After I lost the weight I was told that my husband and I wouldn't be able to have a baby and also my vision of springing up out of my chair and walking again just didn't happen. So I thought sod it and piled the weight on again.

    Four years and ten stone later here I am.

    If I don't change things now I won't be around for my boy. I'll be one of those people who can't leave the house. I'm already squeezed into my wheelchair which is not good.

    So, two shakes down and I'm ok, if a little short tempered. There's nothing like a wilful baby to make you want to eat. I will have to be careful it doesn't affect my lad and weaning. He pretty much eats anything but I'll have to make sure I don't pick on his stuff and that my diet doesn't affect him.

    Yesterday I got some very sad news. A lovely friend of mine has passed away from cancer. It goes to show there's just no time to waste being miserable. You have to make the most of what you have and get on with it.

    I nearly fell at the first hurdle this morning at Costa but I didn't, I stuck to it and I'm proud of that.

    I'm looking forward to getting into it and seeing results. There's so much inspiration on this forum, I think everyone's amazing with their focus.

    Let the journey commence, Onwards and downwards ! 😊

    Good luck angel :-) it's amazing how much we can bury our heads in the sand when we put our minds to it!! Well, onwards and downwards now, stick too it and there's only one way the scales will go, as you know from doing phenomenally well before!!

    I deffo get cranky the first week or so too - poor hubs!! Well done for staying strong even after getting bad news too, that's always a struggle for me too!

    I'm on here snooping around loads - nothing more inspiring than these amazing ladies who have lost so much and completely changed their attitudes towards food, I think that's the biggest battle!!

    Anyhoo, rambling now when all I really wanted to say was good luck lol!! :-)

    Thanks Bob, your losses are amazing. I think I will weigh inn next Friday but then do it once a month too. I think it takes the pressure off somehow. I was dreadful last time weighing myself daily.

    Well, day one done successfully. Mild headache and I've lost count about trips to the loo. I had Chai Latte for dinner. Vanilla shake with warm water made with a chai tea bag. It was a tip someone gave me when I tried Exante just before I got pregnant. Yum.

    Day 2 underway and going well. It's a beautiful autumn morning. I asked my husband why he didn't tell me I was getting so big. He said that after a certain point it's hard to tell. I wonder how much i will need to lose before it's noticeable.

    A Bit lightheaded, still rushing to the loo. How long before that stops I wonder.

    Well, time to make lunch for my little one. Roll on day 4 when I'm not hungry anymore.

    You're doing so well. Don't best yourself up too much. You're in a wheelchair it's harder for you to lose weight and also all the emotional issues that go with that. I too was in a wheelchair the last four months and I know how hard it is. You will do well and that little boy will be so proud of his mummy xxx

    Thanks Manda, the wheelchair does make loss slower I think but I've done it before, I can do it again! Weird though, I can't actually remember the weight loss journey last time. I don't think my head ever caught up with the loss.

    I hope your time in a chair is temporary? Life doesn't stop, it just takes a while to adjust. I hope my loss is as good as yours. Well done!

    Nearly 8pm and my 8 month old has finally gone down. He hasn't had a sleep at all today, far too busy exploring!

    I'm fit to drop. I started with with a runny nose and cold like symptoms last night which haven't gone. Did anyone else get that when they started or have I just got a cold. Yuk.

    Yeay for minimins! If I'm on here I can't be in the cupboard which is tempting but not happening.

    Roll on day 3

    Goooood morning! Raspberry and white choc shake, bit sweet but went down a treat. I'm already feeling lighter and a bit more alert, although I could really do with this pesky cold vamooshing. Uh oh, little ones on the move...

    let the days exploration begin! Have a great day all.

    Hi Angel,

    Good luck on your journey! I know that feeling of putting on weight after you've had a baby, I did it with my first and it was such a shock, it's so easy done when your busy looking after a little one and putting them first. But I suppose sometimes we have to make a little time for ourselves to keep ourselves healthy for them.
    Another day or so and you'll start to feel better. How are you finding it, are you getting into the swing of it now?

    Hi Poppy,

    I'm 100% so far. I find the new flavours hazelnut and raspberry/white choc very sweet but the vanilla fine. Feeling good apart from a rotten cold and back pain. Well done on losing 10%. It's supposed to have big health benefits.

    Little le one is still wide awake and won't go down. He wouldn't even have a nap today. He's very giggly and smiley though which spurs me on.

    Early night for me.

    Day 4 ketosis day???? Feeling definately lighter. It might be just fluid but my clothes are not as tight Woohooo!
    Porridge and black coffee for breaky. I must remember to look up if milk affects ketosis. I prefer tea and coffee with milk.

    Porridge by far the most delicious. Now I'm off to battle the company over my dreadful phone quality and broadband speed... Again. I'm feeling great, ready to tackle anything. It's a good job too with lots of things on my to do list.

    Must be Ketosis! Fired up and raring to go, come on goal!

    Ooo I do hope it's ketosis. I'm ready for shake 3! It's been a busy day achieving nothing except a happy little man. Phone company kept me hanging for 30 mins then cut me off! Grrrr... Lovely fire going now and hubby is finally home and entertaining little one while I have a drink (sparkling water!)

    two tricky social events coming up though. First is drinks and nibbles with four friends. I figure I can just avoid the nibbles and drink water from a wine glass citing medication as the reason.

    Second is afternoon tea on 5 December as a gift from a dear friend. It's all paid for as a surprise at a posh venue. I really don't know how to get around that one as it would really upset her.

    Oh well, I'm sure I will work it out. Choc mint shake warm for dinner. Yum.

    hi Angel,

    I'm usually a big tea drinker but following paleo and milk is kind of a no no. ... my main hot drinks now are chamomile or peppermint tea. ...a bit weird the first couple of times but I don't miss tea at all now. ... Maybe worth a try if milk does affect ketosis? x

    Thanks blubex, I've got peppermint tea but I've not tried chamomile. Thanks for the reminder, I will look up the milk thing now while I get chance. Well done on your loss so far!

    Eeeek, milk can take you out of ketosis so it's out for me! Peppermint tea it is. Have a great week.
