Thought I'd start a diary for myself so I can ramble on about how I feel and whats going on. I'll post a quick summary of my weigh gain/loss rollercoaster so far and a start photo (if I can figure out how!)
Right so I am Kitty. I'm 28 years old and I have 4 children.
Before I had children I was a 10-12, I always thought in my teenage years I was huge, but looking back I was such a skinny thing!
I got pregnant with my first child at 19, he was a big baby (9lbs at birth) and although I didn't put on a massive amount my tummy was huge and stretched (i got alot of stretch marks).
When my son was only 9 months old and I hadn't lost my original baby weight, I got pregnant again. so soon after I had an 18 month old and a new born.
I got married at this point to my boyfriend, I'd been with him since 15 (and we are still happily married) I was 11 stone at my wedding.
During my next 2 pregnancies I gained alot, ending up at 14 stone in 2011.
Btween 2012 and the beginning of 2013 I lost 2 stone and got to 12 stone,
but after a massive stall at 12 stone and being unable to get below that after going to the gym I blew it big time, and gained a stone!! :sigh:
So here I am,
2 weeks ago I started s&s at 13 stone 3lbs, and have lost 8.5 lbs in 2 weeks.
I'm trying so hard to stay focused, and i really feel positive.
My husband and I are having a rare 2 days away together, child free, in November so this is my motivation!
Attachment 105039 So here's me, now at 12 stone 8.5lbs. I'm hoping to get to at least 11 before I go away in 9 weeks, so another stone and a half :)
Just over 2 weeks now. Lost 0.5lb since yesterday morning, I really need to get the scales hidden, the temptation of daily weigh in is too much.
Realised I have 8 weeks now until I go away, well 9 weeks, but I plan to quit s&s a week before I go.
8 weeks, If I could loose 2 stone I would be over the moon.
It just seems like such a long time to do this, funny because I'm not struggling at all day to day and I can't see myself giving up or eating something I shouldn't, but the thought of doing this for 8 weeks is a bit overwhelming.
Take it day by day and week by week.
Another thing is BMI, obviously I'm over weight now, but at my height 5'5 if I got down to 10.7st then id only just be out of the over weight category, if I were 5'4 I would be classed as overweight. That seems like madness to me!
Gonna go get my milkshake, tummys rumbling!
