    Hey everyone

    Just found this part of the forum so decided to join in. I had a baby on New Years Eve, after two years of trying to get pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCOS and endometriosis quite early on after we started trying and, as things weren't happening baby wise, we decided to book our wedding for 8th March. Couldn't have been more surprised in May when we found out we were pregnant!! I was diagnosed with Gestational diabetes in October and was put on Metformin and insulin to control it.

    I was 16 stone exactly on the day I found out I was pregnant and gained 30lbs throughout my pregnancy. Our beautiful baby boy Cole was born on New Year's Eve, weighing 7lb 12oz, with me weighing 18st 2lb.

    I somehow (don't ask me how) managed to lose 24lbs by last Sunday which spurred me on to re join Weight Watchers online and get some more weight off for our wedding, which is 6 weeks tomorrow!!! I've already lost another 3lbs since Sunday so I'm now 16st 3lbs and only 3lbs away from my pre pregnancy weight. I'm hoping to be 14st 13lbs by the wedding, which is 18lbs in 6 weeks. I'm planning on posting my food diary every day so I know what I've had :) Any comments/suggestions gratefully received!!!!

    Sorry for the long post, thought I'd give a bit of a background story.

    Have decided to start a new thread in the Weight Watchers section, rather than in here, so if anyone wants to follow my diary I'll be over there.
