    Hi - I'm Rachel. I had twin boys almost 10 months ago. The baby weight fell off pretty much instantly (back to my pre-pregnancy but over weight) but I'm ashamed to say I've put some of it back on recently - treating myself to a glass of wine or two once they've gone to bed and picking of an evening out of boredom (DH does early shifts and so goes to bed early).
    I'm back to work in a few weeks and am embarrassed about my weight as when I popped in with 2 newborns everyone commented how good I looked - my gain is noticeable. About a stone and a half!!
    I'm starting a fresh diary to keep me on track. Here goes...

    Bk - oats so simple banana, milk HEA
    Lunch - ready to Wok noodles 2.5, mushrooms and onions
    Tea - tuna pasta, pesto 3.5
    2 sugars in coffee - 2

    hi reading your threads, first congratulations on your twins! Soon be one !
    My daughter is expecting twin boys this Christmas! We were both on slimming world last July 2013 I weighted in at 13 st 10 lbs, got down to 11st 7 lbs by Christmas week.
    felt good, then stopped going thinking hey! I can do this on my own.....but now gained around 15 lbs....:(
    started back on it, on my own last Saturday, first weigh in tomorrow!!

    What a great Christmas present for you. Your daughter is in for a real treat. Don't get me wrong, the first 3 or so months were tough - the hardest thing I've ever done by far but at the moment they are just great! Making each other laugh all the time.
    You've proven SW works for you - you can do it again! Good luck!

    I cheated with curry paste! It's got a large bag of spinach in it so it's like a saag really. I sometimes stir a muller light Greek coconut yogurt in at the very end, it makes it a bit Korma/ passanda like!

    I'm only going to weigh myself every two weeks. I know from experience that a bad result on the scales can be cause to throw in the towel! I'm also terrible for sneaky peaks on the scales midweek. I weigh next a week today.

    Here's to seeing less of me tomorrow.
