    New here, and starting Slim & Save....Thought I'd introduce myself :)

    Hi everyone

    My name is Natalie, I am married with a gorgeous 9mo old baby boy.
    My weight has yo-yo'd since getting married, but I've always managed to keep it below 11st.

    I gained a massive 5.5st when pregnant (addicted to Bran Flakes of all things!) - was mortified!

    I struggled to lose the weight at first due to a c-section, but since then I've not really had much success (not really tried to be honest!).

    However, in November and since, I have managed to acquire three sickness bugs, which have helped me to lose 16lbs as of today's weigh-in.

    This has spurred me on, as I want to be back to below 11st, ideally nearer 10st, by May 2013. That's only ten weeks away so I knew drastic action was needed!

    So, I was due to start Slim & Save today, but I just received a text saying the delivery is delayed! I won't get it until tomorrow even though I ordered last Thursday!

    Bit disappointed - had prepared myself to start today, a Monday, which to me, is a good day to start!

    Oh well, I will be starting tomorrow instead and tracking my progress.

    Just wanted to check in and say 'hi' to everyone - I've been reading some of your progresses, and WOW, I am now so inspired and even more determinded!

    Thanks for reading

    Natalie xxx

    Neither can I, lol!

    I'm hoping for a good loss the first week, as I think it can slow down the less you have to lose? Really don't want to feel deflated at the end of the first week, so fingers crossed!

    How're you going? Have you kept away from the scales until the end of your 1st week? I'm going to try, but I know it's going to be hard (may have to ask hubby to hide them!).

    I didn't go near them today But I measured my waist and it appears to be down by a further half an inch from yesterday! I was in town shopping today and OMG it was like my eyes zoned in on chocolate EVERYWHERE. Even in Boots! But I think that was partly coz I had to postpone my lunch.

    You've got willpower! I know I need mine taking away else I'll be near them all the time!
    That's great, half inch in a day! you've reminded me I need to do measurements, I totally forgot! Thanks for the reminder
    That's one thing I'll miss - chocolate! Hubby can't have any in the house, it will kill me!
    Looking forward to hearing your results when you do have your weigh-in!

    Thank you, I am very excited, especially after reading such inspiring stories on here, and seeing so much determination!
    You've done so well, you'll be at your goal in no time!
    I've heard the first few days can be tough, but I figure, this diet is costing me, so I will stick to it, as I am not wasting my money, only to fail!
    I'll post results after my first week, so that will be next Tuesday....really hoping for decent results!
