hi hun, i think the 1st few days was a massive shock to my system. last week i was eating crap but this week as you can see i have been well strict with myself and in doing so i have drasically cut my calories. think that was the reason for the dizziness plus i use to drink 2lts of pepsi daily and for this week i have had not 1 single glass ;)

hope this helps

plus i have been drinking 2 pints of water before bed so i am well hydrated in the morning, headaches are usually caused by dehydration

thanks rach its great for will power seeing those 1st few pounds come off cos now i know i CAN diet, and diet well!

i know it will slow down next week but right now i am on a high.

i was 16 st at my heaviest but after breast feeding for 7 months i had got down to 13st11 but i completely put this down to the breast feeding, believe me i was living on lettuce lol. but i know these 4 lbs that i have lost now has been down to me and the changes i have made and that feels like a bigger achievement than loosing the 2st 3lb if that makes sense. i suppose its because i know that that weight loss was a bit of a fluke really.

anyway rach lovely to see ur doing sooooo well, i find u to be an inspiration to people like me who is just starting out. thanks for all ur posts it really does spur us on x

thanks hun, dont really see myself as an inspiration, but i am glad you see it that way!! makes me feel good lol!!

You will do it too hun, just keep picturing the new you, and never say that the other weight loss was a fluke, you did great to lose it. I never lost any real weight after having my kids, both by c-section!!

lol yeah i know the feeling. my 3 children are all by section.
they are libby aged 4, leo aged 2 and billy aged 7 months so i know all about the belly over hang lol dont think that will ever go.
but when u point it out like that i really should be proud cos i am now lighter than when i was BEFORE i had kids. (i only ever gained like 7-8 lbs in all my pregnancies which is bloody weird cos i never usually struggle gaining pmsl)

well done on sts!! :D Always better than a gain!! The only weight i put on with my son mathew who will be 8 in may was the weight he was when born which was 6lb 9oz, i think it was nearly same with my daughter ruth who is 5, she was 9lb 13oz, maybe i put a little extra on not sure. But now i only have to look or smell food and i pile the weight on lol

oh believe me i am the same and it doesnt help that hubbie is a feeder lol. as soon as he knows i'm starting a diet he cooks and cooks and cooks allllllllllllllll great tasty food and he piles my plate like a mans large portion. i have warned him now though. i will do my own cooking that way i can control what goes in my food and on my plate.
very excited for today cos i'm having a sunday dinner without the potatoes and with the things i cook with its suprisingly low fat and calories and well under the 15g ruling. the whole meal totals 9g fat so bring it on i say lol

well this morning is 1st official weigh in for me and i lost 3 lbs :)
i had lost 4lb but i will not be too disheartened by the lb gain as i have very strong totm pains so hoping its just water gain! rach how mush do u usually gain at this time. i need to add this is my 1st totm pains since dec 09 cos i fell pregnant then and have been breast feeding since but now i have stopped i have no down the dreaded af is on her way back. (1st cycle since i had my coil done to which is a bit scary lol)
so all in all i am a happy bunny this morning x
