Going to be a yummy mummy! ^.^

Hello :)

I'm Joanne, 26 from outside of Glasgow. I live with my partner Scott and our 2 kids. I started SW in 2009 and lost over 2 stone! Then in March 2010 I fell pregnant with our son Mason, put all the weight back on! Pigged out and couldn't stick to plan :(

I've rejoined from the start of Feb 2011 and I am loving being back to SW, cooking lots and eating lots!!

So far I have lost 18lbs on plan and I need another 3 pounds to get me to my next shiney sticker and my club10, my fingers are crossed for this week but who knows? Might be longer.

I used to have a website for my weight loss but I love mini mins and all the support and information it gives you, I prefer posting on here ;)

I hope you'll join me on my journey to yummy mummy :)

Hi Joanne thought I'd reply to your query on here rather than on Hunca's diary :)

Kettleworx is a fab exercise programme where you use a kettlebell weight.

The programme is split into 6 weeks and consists of 3 20 min sessions - core, resistance and cardio. Each of these sessions focus on toning different areas of the body.

I have found the kettleworx programme extremely effective and although I haven't had a massive weight loss I have really toned up in my stomach and legs.I have some pictures in my signature link which show the resuts( I was never overweight to begin with just wanted to shift weight ive gained in the past few years.)

I bought the dvds from amazon and the bell from argos - the initial outlay is expensive but so worth it and when yoy have finished the 6 weeks you can start over with a heavier bell. I started with a 5 kg and am now using a 7.5 kg.

I have noticed that you've posted on the kettlebells thread but as there are sooo many pages to get through I thought a summary might help!! Any qs just ask :)

Good luck :)
Thank you! Did you just purchase the essential one for 50 the buy the seperate weights?
Yes it was essential Kettleworx I bought
KettleWorx Essentials - 6 Kettlebell Training DVD Set: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Leisure

Bought my bell seperate from argos cos the one with the dvds was too light - I'd recommed a cast iron 5 kg bell to get you started( on sale for 4.99 in Argos)
Buy Maximuscle Kettlebell - 5kg at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for Home gym equipment.

You might want to try tesco and amazon too for a kettlebell to see which offers best price but go for iron over plastic coated as these ones are quite slippy!!
None of the argos ones left in stock, damn! Will have a look on tesco etc thank you very much x
Mixed day today, Ive been good but my emotions are all over the place. Had some really bad news about my OH Best friend so we are a bit down today and I have just finished 2 out of my 3 outcomes i have for college this week. Hospital appointment tomorrow and college again on thursday, cant wait until the weekend - honestly!

Weigh in on Monday 10th - 1lb off :) .. I'm happy but really want to get my 1.5 off to get my 2.5 stone award next week. Would be soo happy with that. Fingers and toes are crossed!

Tuesday 11th October - Red
A - 250ml milk ~ 2 x slices RF cheese
B - 2 x bread ~ 2 x bread(again lol)

Breakfast - Bacon sarnie (1 for marg), tea, glass of milk
