    Red face Extra Easy: From Flabby to Abi

    Hi Everyone ,
    I'm new to posting on this site. I've been using it for recipes and help since I rejoined SW in March but thought it was finally time to start posting.

    My name is Abi, from South Shields I have 2 kids (aged 1 and 2) I joined in march 2013 after struggling to feel like myself again after having 2 difficult pregnancies and c-sections. I ballooned to 20 stone 5 pounds and was absolutely miserable.

    I've been steadily losing weight and am now down to 15 stone 6 pound (Just 1 annoying lb away from my 5 stone award!) My interim target weight is 14 stone 5lb. My final target will probably be around 12 stone.

    I absolutely love the plan, I occasionally have success express days/weeks, but feel I can be quite complacent recently. I was nominated for my groups Woman of the Year and crowned Miss Slinky for me group too and I don't want to let my group or myself down by being lazy with the plan or making excuses. I kept a food diary last week and found that to help so I thought I would keep it on here.

    I understand your pain...my scar isn't even straight !! & my tummy really does hang over it, it's awful to look at, I often wear the biggest pants I can and tuck it all in my pants :-/

    Im so glad Im not the only one!

    2 sections in 14 months, my tummy is AWFUL. big pants, leggings and skater style dresses hide a multitude of sins lol.

    I was so proud of myself staying pretty much to plan all weekend. I often find it easy to be a bit naughty after weigh in on a friday and have a weekend treat. This week I resisted... until walkers sensations were reduced to 50p for a big bag. Before I knew it half of the bag was gone! SO annoyed at myself, it threw my whole afternoon off because they made me feel ill. My tea was on plan and yummy though.

    I could make a million excuses for why it happened but the truth is I was just greedy (and I love a bargain lol) I've been through worse and still managed to stick on plan.
    Suck it up, Buttercup

    I've not had the best of weeks but I'm hoping for a loss !! Drank so much wine & vodka on Friday all syns were gobs within the first hour!!! & I was drinking until well passed mid night!! Why do we do this to ourselves? I get a baby sitter & all he'll breaks loose....
    Agh well fresh start tomorrow...did everyone have planned c sections or emergency not sure whether there is much difference in scar size etc I was literally slashed open and baby pulled out !!
    (Emergency)

    Hoping next one (if I do decide to have another) is natural and not so 'bloody' xxx

    I found my second pregnancy hard because of the pressure on my scar, it took a LOT more recovering from too (I still wouldnt say Im there yet and she is 18 months now). It made for complications in labour too. I went in for a planned induction with both of mine because of medical issues. Ended up trying for 3 days with both (first one NOTHING happened and the second I was in labour for 16 hours before literally screaming for a section) Not much difference in scar size or recovery (think the nurses were a little more demanding of me after my second one, but my local hosiptal isnt the best) Silly thing is I would still have more lol, its all worth it in the end

    Wine and vodka is possibly the best way to spend your syns! Do you drink red or white? I'm a red girl personally and what I do to make a glass last longer is mix it with diet coke (like you can mix white with lemonade) Obviously I would never mix a fancy bottle of wine but if its just your bog standard 3 for 10 bottle I think its worth it. You can still taste the wine, get merry and your syns last twice as long, just make sure the coke is room temp .x.x.x.

    Draw a line under it and start a fresh the next day! I can see why you would like a drink in an evening with 2 small children! I have one and that's bad enough! No more for me for a while!
    My section was planned, my son was breech, only found out when my waters went. That was a shock but had 9 hours to prepare for surgery.

    Had a really good week on plan after the crisp incident. Went out for a lovely curry on Wednesday which is something I don't usually get to do with my partner, with having 2 young kids. I used flexi syns, counted up how many I would need to enjoy my night out without depriving myself of what I enjoy (chicken tikka masala, onion bhaji and poppadoms!) Ended up using less than planned as I didnt fancy the alcohol I had allowed for.

    Was a bit worried come weigh day on friday morning as the toilet fairy just wasnt coming to visit (note to self need scan bran!!) but I still managed to lose 1 1/2 lb which meant I got my 5 stone and another cheeky SOTW! I couldve cried! I also came 2nd out of our large group for overall November weightloss. I really never though I would get this far, it just seemed like a have such a lot to lose. Ive now lost a quarter of my starting weight, which I think really puts it into perspective. Ive got 1 stone to go for my 2nd interim target and then another 2 from that to get to what I think will be my final target (but I may change my mind on that)

    My amazing consultant David gave us a fab tool to use, hes created a month long calendar for December to help keep us on track, each day is split into 3 meal sections and the idea is to identify which meals may be danger areas, nights out etc and which meals can be food optimised to balance it out. Im actually really looking forward to filling it in, I may even post it for people on here to use.

    Im now going to treat myself to a cheeky glass of wine (maybe 2 ) and some nuts (hexb of course)

    Someone slap me please?!?!

    barely had any superfree yesterday, I didnt even really fancy any food.
    Today I was holding a charity event, a Christmas party for the Childrens Heart Unit Fund. cake was nibbled and carry out for tea (far too tired to cook!) I had it planned but actually putting it into practice I feel awful and almost like I have failed or cheated. Can't wait to get back on it 100% tomorrow, I almost feel good that I don't enjoy the junk food and what would have once been treats, anymore. Makes doing the plan a lot easier and more enjoyable.

    WELL!

    Had a crazy week. We did 2 charity events for the Childrens Heart Unit Fund, the Christmas party and then a coffee morning on wednesday. I managed to not eat ANY cakes (which was VERY difficult) I did drink tea with REAL sugar dundunduuuuuun haha. We also had a friend visiting from Ireland who likes to spoil us so we were out for 2 meals and I drank ALL of the wine ALL of it! haha I made the best choices I could for the meals and was actually pretty pleased with myself, It couldve been SO much worse.

    I totally crashed at the end of the week though and felt absolutely awful and really wasnt looking forward to my late weigh in on saturday morning. Im on acountdown though and was going if I liked it or not (my consultant wouldn't let me have a holiday even if I tried haha)

    Anyway I weighed and nearly had a blummin kitten when she said I lost 5 1/2 lb!!! WHAT!!! Im now only 1lb away from 51/2 stone! and 8lbs away from my interim target! Cant believe it.

    Anyway still feeling poorly I had a not so great weekend. I love the UFC and we usually have snacky food when we watch it and to be honest its still a bit of a danger area for me. I thought I had eaten loads of pringles but in looking at the tubs its not actually as bad as I thought. I think because I look at food so differently I feel like Ive eaten a lot more than I have. I used to be able to eat a whole tube of pringles without batting an eyelid! I also mixed it up and had a load of veg sticks as well so at least I got extra SF too.

    Back on it as best I can this week. My son is going into hospital for 3 days in Leeds which is like 2 hours away from our home so either his dad or I will go and stay with him there. So its either cooking for one at home (which I am terrible at doing) or doing the best I can with hospital food, a fridge and a kettle! Trying to do monday and tuesday success express to minimise the damage but who knows.

    On an awesome note my amazing consultant David asked me to be one of his angels on his social team. Apparently some of the group had suggested it and he agreed that I would be a good addition. Gave me the warm and fuzzies ^_^
