    Reclaiming me

    Need to reclaim me, my body and my enjoyment in life. I'm overweight, obese I suppose I haven't really checked out the numbers recently but I'm not going to wallow in pity any longer. Life has recently been amazing! I have been blessed with a son who is now 10 weeks old and I'm totally smitten. But having quickly lost most of my pregnancy weight by 3 weeks by bf and eating well while hubby was off I have totally relapsed and am eating appallingly so have probably put a stone of it back on. I'm still breastfeeding so have used that as an excuse to eat cake. A tonne of it. And chocolate. In fact I eat most of the day. All the wrong stuff. It's such an easy excuse. But I feel pretty sluggish now- the sleepless nights don't help but I know the food issue is taking it's toll and playing a part.

    So I have a target of 11 stone and I'd like to get there by next summer. I'd like to be near it by the time I return to work in May. I'd like to be 12 - 12st 7 by Christmas. I'm currently somewhere in the 13stone bracket. I hope closer to 13 than 14 but I'll weigh in tomorrow.

    Now the dilemma. I'm on mat leave and currently skint. 5 a week isn't much but I'm not sure I can stretch to it as the budget is super tight so I've seen many people follow Sw here and weigh at home. So I'm going to give it a try. If after a month I'm getting nowhere I'll be joining the group in the local town. They meet at 10am on a Wednesday so I could take baby along I think.

    A bit of background on my weight. I was an averaged sized teen, not skinny but athletic and quite sporty. I went to uni and gained 2stone. I took up running and lost 2and a half stone. I met my husband and gradually put back on the 2and a half stone. I had my daughter and gained another stone. At 13st 9 I joined Sw for the first time and lost 2st 4lb and felt great. I had a miscarriage and then regained 2stone. I then had my boy and I'm back at the mid 13stone again. I neeeeeed to do this again which is annoying but can't be helped. I need to focus so this will be a diary of random musings as well as documenting my struggle with food. I suspect I have a borderline eating disorder. I have what I suppose are mild binges although I never purge. I don't know what triggers but I think I'm quite an emotional eater too. I found the image therapy such a huge boost at my last group (sadly I don't live near it anymore so the one I could go to will be totally new) so I will be turning to this site for my regular dose.

    Wave if you like and please cheer me on

    So tomorrow's good plan:

    Breakfast branflakes, milk and a banana

    Snack:apples

    Lunch mugshot and a muller light with more fruit

    Tea: baked potato with bacon and beans and a bit of cheese.

    I think I get 2x hex a while breast feeding. Can anyone confirm this?

    Exercise tomorrow: I need to go to town so I plan to drive and park a little way out so I can push the buggy for a mile or so there.


    Feels good to have a plan but worried I'm going to be hungry. Best stock up on fruit while I'm out.

    Good luck on your weight loss journey.
    Stock up on fruit and carrot/celery sticks - I close my eyes and pretend they are chocolate ha. Keep drinking water, herbal teas and you will feel fuller

    Thanks amzee good tips but not convinced about tasting like chocolate!

    So weighing in at 13 st 5.5lb

    Kind of expected that. Shockingly bad really.

    So my first goal will be 13 stone. Totally doable.

    Let's do this!

    Hun I've been there. I weighed in 4 years ago at 13 stone 8. I felt bloated and horrible, but slimming world made me see food differently and I never thought eating so much 'good' food could make me lose weight.

    Set small goals and you will get there. Have some faith and don't be too hard on yourself when you do fall.

    Good luck
