    Hey guys, im new around here. I'm Emilie, mum to a nearly 10 month old baby called Jamie, and also a student at Southampton University studying sociology. I want to lose the weight i gained whilst pregnant and after.

    I want to reach my goal of 11st by christmas, so i have 25lbs to lose in 8 and half weeks, which is 3 pounds ish a week. I have done this before as i have lost weigh many times, including 4st before i met my other half. I know i can do this its just the sticking to it that is my problem, which is where this forum comes in handy! I am doing really well already nearly at the end of day 5 so past the hardest bit already. I have also lost 4lb in 4 days. I am going to update daily to show my progress. Also i have split my goal in to mini half stone goals to have something smaller to aim for.

    Exercise wise i dont have a lot of time but plan on going for long walks on wednesday/saturday/sunday. But i always have my treadmill upstairs if i feel like it.

    Wish me Luck! P.s feel free to chat to me. All motivation/advice appreciated.

    welcome. well i weighed myself this morning (i do most days, i know i shouldnt) but i hadnt lost any weight, i am very confused. I only ate 1000 calories and had 2 15 minute fast walks to uni and back, although i wasnt active for the rest of the day as i was doing work. I also drank 2 litres of water. Why didnt i lose any weight? it's really bugging me, any advice?

    Yea, weighing too often is disheartening but hard not to jump on the scales every morning!

    i'm sure you can achieve it if you stick with it, 2lbs a week is definately possible. I lost loads of weight before by eating soups for at least one meal a day, low calorie and very filling. What kinds of food do you eat?
