Well, I'm brand spanking new to this site!
My name is Mercedes, aged 25 and mother to a beautiful 6month old baby boy and I'm currently 14st 2lb (size 18) after the birth of said wee man, this needs to change.
So tomorrow is my first day of starting my slim and save diet and the beginning of my success story diary :D
Hopefully I'll get some much needed support and in return offer my own praise and advice.
So many of you on here have just done such an amazing job and it's so good to read so much positivity and HEALTHY outlooks on weight loss, a VLCD is a bit extreme but as we all know it's a step to change our lifestyle and our previously negative relationship with food, I will be doing the 4 packs a day until I have lost the first 2stone, then 3 packs.
For me I am more bothered about how I feel in my clothes and the inch loss rather than the scales and as I will be starting an exercise regime in the next few weeks I'm hoping to be a size 10 in roughly around 6months (hopefully sooner ;))
My current measurements are :
Shoulder: 18 in
Bust/chest: 44 in
Waist: 37 in
Hips: 48 in
Forearms: 11 in
Biceps: 14 in
Thighs: 26 in
Calfs: 16.5 in
